On May 1, the latest LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) set will be released – 75275 A-wing Starfighter. One of the things that LEGO fans enjoy doing is looking out for when the company makes little mistakes on the stickers and printed elements included in sets – and there are indeed errors on this one.
Brickset has used the attention to detail that comes with maintaining a massive LEGO database to highlight the mistakes – some, like stylising the ship’s name as A-Wing rather than A-wing is probably of more interest to those editing websites than Star Wars fans, but the others are a bit more cut and dry:
- The length is incorrectly given as 9.60 metres. This figure has appeared in various older reference works but the modern canon length is 6.90 metres which seems much more accurate when compared with the movie.
- ‘Kuat System Engineering’ should be pluralised as ‘Kuat Systems Engineering’. LEGO has included the correct name on previous UCS plaques.
- The weapons information suggests that the A-wing includes a single concussion missile launcher but it actually features two. This mistake may be attributable to limited space on the plaque.
There is one more listed, but it is worth taking a look at the image, seeing if you can spot it, then clicking through to see if you got it right – it’s a very, very specific one!
As Brickset points out, UCS sets having errors on the plaques goes all the way back to 7181 TIE Interceptor and 7191 X-wing Fighter.
