On May 1, the latest LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) set will be released – 75275 A-wing Starfighter. It is the first time that the Rebel ship, introduced in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, has been given the UCS treatment. It will be priced at £179.99 in the UK and $199.99 in the USA.
As well as building the ship itself, the 1,673 piece set will build a display stand and includes an exclusive A-wing Pilot minifigure. The model measures 27cm high, 16.5cm long and 26cm wide.
While the age marking is 18+, it would previously have been marked 16+, so is likely to be suitable for those who haven’t quite reached official adulthood.
Here is the official product description:
Inspire memories of the classic Star Wars: Return of the Jedi movie with this cool Ultimate Collectors Series LEGO A-wing Starfighter (75275) building set!
