Interesting. They officially refer to it as a "toy," yet expect fans to ogle over it as a collectors piece. I understand lego is a toy, but they didn't refer to the falcon or slave 1 as a toy. I was hoping for more pieces tbh. I was stuck between this, carousel, and ninjago city. But now it's just the last two. Wish me luck on deciding.

By in Denmark,

Sounds like another perfect Star Wars set. Saw the images over on The Brick Fan.

Is it just me or has The LEGO Group begun to use the same UCS style on the box as Millennium Falcon 75192? The black colour and the details are the same type. All the prievously UCS sets were different and had more “background” from the movies.

And the price is less than the pieces included - that’s amazing. Not seen in many sets.
And it’s perfect to get with the other promotions in May

By in Australia,

it looks really nice and I'll definitely get it eventually, but at the same time I can't help but notice that 4 out of the last 5 UCS sets have been re-makes of older models (and the odd one out was Assault on Hoth), I would be really keen for something which has not been done before like a Tie Bomber.

Although this is a nice set, I feel like I'd rather save some money and buy the Y-Wing Starfighter from 2017. Probably wasn't a good idea to release the two so close to each other...

'Also includes the Gold Leader’s blaster pistol.'
This feature completely got me to buy it at the first day

By in United States,

@alldarker I suspect that the appropriate cockpit would have required at least one, if not two, new molds, which would have further driven up the cost. They were probably trying to keep retail below the 200.00 U.S. threshold, which is pretty decent given the number of pieces and growing price trend in SW sets. This set is a beauty and I'd love to have it, those greebling details are magnificent! However, aside from hitting the lottery it'll probably remain on my Wanted List. There is a lot of competition for my money nowadays, and unfortunately far less fun money to spend towards the growing list of LEGO wants.

14 cents per brick in Canada...

By in United States,

It's beautiful, no doubt. However, after purchasing the Rogue One Y-Wing just months ago for less than $50, I think I'll hold off on this one. Not quite worth $200 for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

As someone who only recently has gotten the money and space to collect UCS, I love that they are (re?)releasing all these. They are refining the design and I'm almost glad I missed out on the earlier ones as I'd be fighting with myself about whether I should get these or not, whether they are worth the upgrade. But since I don't have them yet, it is an easy "yes of course"! I'm all in on this! The only sad thing is that I started getting the UCS sets just as Red Five retired and would love to get another UCS X-Wing, but maybe it is too soon for that already. The way they are going though, there might be another release of it in a year or two.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I want one.

By in Germany,

Don't anyone dare say it's minifig scale.

By in Sweden,

It's nice, but I'd much rather have seen a UCS A-Wing, or something else that has never been UCS-ed before.

Gravatar
By in Jordan,

Wow, this looks great. I especially like the cockpit area and the asymmetrical greebling on the body! That being said, I am perfectly satisfied with the R1 version. Also, it would've been cool if they had added 10 more pieces to bring the piece count to 1977 (without increasing the price obviously).

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@ gvh: Of course it's a toy, just a very, very expensive one. On the other hand,

@ kyloren0806, the price is fortunately always "less than the pieces included" (or else 75192 would have been $/€ 7541,- for example). Please don't go putting ideas in TLG's head, who knows what they're capable of!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

wow, the price is disappointing, greed, greed, greed.
I have been collecting since 1999 and buy less and less every year :(

EDIT: the price is incorrect, Lego CA lists it at 249,99, (that's better than 279,99)
would have preferred the past standard of 229.99 tho...

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

Never bought any UCS sets before and I probably never will, even though the Y-wing is my most favourite starship in the Star Wars universe. But beautiful model as always.

I'm still upset that they didn't include the Gold Leader minifig with the Y-wing set from Rogue One. Instead they put a Blue Squadron X-wing pilot along with other unrelated minifigs that were mostly filler to me.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Disappointing was hoping as it has been much longer since UCS ISD and Blockade Runner were released that we would be getting one of those.
To be honest though either one would have more sense for the 40 th anniversary of the original movie last year.
Hoping a new set for the release later this year (ie TIE Bomber) and ISD for next May.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I always claim that not interested and guaranteed will be picking this up, Although I suspect that the may the 4th deals will exclude this set. Also kind of gutted I was previously advised that Red 5 was the next UCS from a Lego employee.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So i did the math, and its not to scale with the red five or the snowspeeder. If it was, I'd be 97 cm long

Gravatar
By in Spain,

I wonder if there were no other better option to UCSed in Rogue One than the classical Y-Wing.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Price in CA is $249.99 according to LEGO Shop. Star Wars is expensive but 280 bucks would have been crazy, even by LEGO standards!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I really liked the Rogue One Y-Wing and it was one of the very few sets that I've purchased straight after the release date.
I also really like this.
From the back of the cockpit to the rear of the engines looks amazing and the amount of greebling makes the R1 version seem a bit plain by comparison.
The shaping of the cockpit area is also well done and I cannot fault the build.
The one thing that spoils the entire front end for me, isn't the use of stickers, but that they are badly designed stickers.
I understand what they were going for with these but the visible colour gaps between the stickers and adjoining parts really doesn't do anything for the set and I think it actually cheapens the look of it (and lets not get started on the L shaped sand blue stickers on the side of the cockpit canopy).
I honestly would have preferred a brick built solution like the Rogue One version, even if it meant not having the definition that the stickers are trying to provide.

Lovely looking build though and I will definitely add it to the collection at some point
I just hope that the German website that does aftermarket printed pieces for various LEGO sets does a good job and eliminates the gaps when he gets round to this set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was surprised to find that the minifigure fit comfortably in the cockpit, until I did the math and realized that this is actually proper mini figure scale. It seems like a pretty good value compared to more recent UCS sets, but I will probably not end up getting it.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Brick Dangerous: In for example the sets based on The Angry Birds Movie from 2016, the price were higher than the piece count in each set. This was just an example, but there are other sets where the price are higher. Another example are the Mighty Micros from Marvel and DC, probably Microfighters too.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

First day purschase for sure.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Can anyone chime in on whether this is true minifigure scale (e.g. Slave I, Millennium Falcon, Imperial Shuttle)?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Concerning the color gaps on stickers and adjoining pieces: this is because they centered the stickers on the pieces. It looks to me like you could put the stickers at the edges of the pieces, next to the adjoining pieces, so there are no gaps. This is a Day One purchase for me! The only thing I don't like is that R2-BHD just blends in and looks like more greebling. So I'll just switch him out with a different droid!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Gvh, NinjaGo City. :)

LEGO releases a Falcon every year, so I don't think that is an issue. But once again, the easily found for $50 Y-Wing from last year is great. I'll be passing. Like most Star Wars LEGO it's just overpriced and lame.

This looks fine, though honestly not -that- much better than the current minifig scale one. Come on Lego, give us a UCS A-Wing already! Let us finish our alphabet collection!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

The €30 difference between Germany and The Netherlands still is not justified!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@The_Chosen_1: It's far larger than minifig scale, at about 1:26. Minifig scale is in the range of 1:40 to 1:45, depending on how tall you assume the little guys are. Can go up to something like 1:35 if you really need to account for their enormous width (e.g. when building a car with two figures side by side).

@haldir: How you do figure? It's about 50% too large for that. The one from last year is pretty much right, this ship isn't as massive as people seem to think it is.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@The Chosen One
I built the first UCS Y-wing many years ago, and IIRC it looked much bigger than minifig scale.

This set is at about 1/27th scale (60cm/16m).
A minifig is 1/40th ? (for height- for width it depends if the reference is obese)

Edit: Rob42 was faster than me!

Gravatar
By in United States,

If I get this, Ive got an extra Chopper that can much better (for my taste) fill the Astromech slot.

It's my favorite ship in the rebel fleet trailed closely by the B-wing. I have the last 2 minifig scale Y's hanging from my ceiling, and as cool as this looks, I just don't have shelf space. I have hella system sets, but the only USC to date is the Sandcrawler (BB-8 counts?) so I'll pass on this one unless I see it on 20% off or purchase online after too many drinks.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I used to own the old one. Although nowadays the models have better details than before, I'm not really impressed with this one. I can't really put my finger on it why. It's just a feeling I guess...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Rob42 @Brickeric @The_Chosen_1
This is not prefect minifig scale but pretty close.
Everyone that's using the 16m as total length, please note:
Y-wing is 16m without the engine nacelles, but 23.4m total with engines included (Look it up, this is canon http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/BTL-A4_Y-wing_assault_starfighter/bomber )
23.4m/61cm = 38.36:1, not too far away from 42:1, which is considered to be perfect minifig scale

Edit: link to star wars official databank: http://www.starwars.com/databank/y-wing-starfighter
which also states 23.4m in length

The rogue one x wing released in 2017 is scaled at 23.4m/41cm = 57:1, which is much less to scale compare to this new UCS.

By in United Kingdom,

I really don't want to drop £170 on this, but I think it could be too beautiful to resist.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Lego Canada shows $249.99 CAD instead of $279.99 CAD.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@charlott: Ah, that confusion. This ship is 16.24 m, as it appears in the film. That's what is given in the Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide.

The 23.4 m are only in that article because the Databank doesn't make it clear which Y-Wing they're talking about: The streamlined model from The Clone Wars has quite different proportions to the later Rebel ships, with much longer engines. That is very clear if you overlay silhouettes of the two ships, the cockpit section and width match, the length doesn't: https://i.imgur.com/iYeRPsP.png

If you don't believe me, look at the films, for example Rogue One: https://i.imgur.com/IAIzYG6.png
Those Y-Wings are slightly longer than the X-Wings, not twice as long.

Gravatar
By in United States,

For all you greebling aficionados out there.

Still love my 9495 Y-Wing Starfighter but man, this takes it to a whole 'nother stratosphere.
Great detailing on this. A must get.

Good to see Jon Dutch Vander aka Gold Leader and R2-BHD.
Gold Team Rules!!!

> Makes the perfect centerpiece for any LEGO Star Wars collection.

I'm not sure about that. How many people would have this as the centerpiece of their collection? Very few, I imagine.

Gravatar
By in Finland,

Finland get the shaft again, €40 more expensive than Germany (199 vs 239) despite it supposedly being the same currency.
This relegates the set into the wait for Toys R Us to have a 25/30% off sale.

You're pushing your luck Lego, I (and I'm sure others) am getting ready to bail.

Gravatar
By in Jordan,

@charlott: The Wookiepedia article actually mentions that the Y-wings used in the Clone Wars were 23.4 metres long, while the ones used during the Galactic Civil War were 16.24 metres long (see the second and last paragraphs of the "Characteristics" section).

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Rob42 @M.Jibril
While I really appreciate you trying to clarify this to me, I am still a bit unconvinced. The difference between the two models is 23.4-16.24 = 7.16m. 7.16m/16.24m = 44%. Does that difference in engine length shown in your overlay photo (https://i.imgur.com/iYeRPsP.png) look like almost half a ship length to you? The gap seems too small to be 7 meters. This tells me either the clone wars y-wing is shorter than 23.4m, or the yavin y-wing is much longer than 16.24m

I have to agree that the movie screen shot proves your point. This is where this comparison lost me. There seems to be some inconsistencies even between the official visual guide and the movie.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This will hopefully be my first UCS set. The Y-Wing is my favorite Star Wars fighter; the rugged greebles more akin to a train locomotive than a spaceship; the torpedo bomber feel mimicking the great WWII planes that inspired the film, the no-nonsense sense of the pilots needed to fly a rugged beast. As I like to say, if Luke Skywalker had been part of Gold Squadron, A New Hope would have ended four minutes sooner since the Y-Wings were the first to make the trench run!

With that said, money is tight right now; so no it will not be a day one purchase for me. I will be keeping an eye on this in stores and on my wallet, it will make a fine addition to my collection when the time is right.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Very cool. 1+ will be added to my collection

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'd want this just for the droid.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I love this along with all the star wars ships ever produced, millennium falcon and slave one being the obvious favourites but the detail on this Y-wing is exquisite, if it was £70 cheaper I'd buy it tomorrow..

Gravatar
By in United States,

Agreeing with some people here that it was too soon and close to the RO system set and something like an AT-AT wpuld have been great (need another one of those in system set as a: Tie Bomber, Imperial Cargo ship from RO, AT-ACT, Imperial Star Destroyer and Bounty Hunter Pursuit). May even get the 2017 Y-Wing now that discounts will thrive.
Edit: I forgot to add a Blue Leader X-Wing.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Fun fact: R2-BHD stands for "big happy dude". I'm glad to see one of the coolest looking astromechs make a LEGO appearance.

By in United Kingdom,

Nice! Hopefully we'll get a UCS Imperial Shuttle/ Star Destroyer next year!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@charlott @Rob42 @M.Jibril @Gvh @Brickeric @haldir
The amount of research & mathematics you've all put into the scale debate is commendable.
I've no idea who's right. However, maybe we need to remember that this craft is from a work of fiction, the producers of which probably never imagined would be debated four decades in the futures, least of all concerning the representation in plastic bricks of one of the less-important (sorry...) spaceships.
LEGO have chosen to include a minifigure at this scale; we can choose to accept that scaling as authoritative and enjoy this highly-artistic model, or we can seek out our own version of accuracy and correct this glaring error by stuffing a DUPLO figure in the cockpit.

Gravatar
By in United States,

so does this mean no UCS Bespin this year?

I do love the look of this though.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm sick of stickers, especially on prestige sets like this. You don't see stickers on Mega Construx sets and they are also cheaper. If they can do it then Lego has no excuse. These type sets aren't meant to be parts packs but high quality display pieces. Even the original ucs y-wing had a fully printed cockpit canopy which was also the same part as this one. Poor show, again, for what otherwise looks like a fantastic set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The best UCS Y-wing I've ever seen was built by "Gareth" on FBTB way back in 2005. It had a nicely shaped cockpit canopy that opened correctly, to the side, using only existing parts. ( https://web.archive.org/web/20081006202932/http://www.fbtb.net/gareth/UCSywing/details.htm ), ( https://web.archive.org/web/20080516181834/http://www.fbtb.net/gareth/UCSywing/index.htm )

Erm...well...maybe the greebling and the engines on the new set are a lot better, but the FBTB cockpit, canopy, and brick-built droid are still the best.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

This sucks cos I don't buy UCS but I collect rebel pilots and Dutch Vander was on my list. I already missed out on Wedge Antilles, Wes Janson and the two from the Snowdpeeder cos the sets are too expensive

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

you can also tell that the way the cockpit is and the laser cannon above it that you need to turn the laser cannon to the side to open the cockpit fully, which am sure will be confirmed when reviewed but seems a terrible flaw for something so detailed and expensive.

silly

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I agree with alldarker on the cockpit, but not the same aspect he/she dislikes. I don't care that it doesn't open accurately, I care about the fact that it's not raked forward as on the "real" thing. They made an attempt to cheat the effect on the last minifig Y-wing. However, on this UCS version there doesn't appear to have been any effort to make it accurate.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

And the usual question comes up: Do I still have some space left to display it?

Well, buy first, ask later! :-)

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@charlott: It's difficult to see in the image, but the nose guns are also different, they only reach to about the edge of the blue canvas on the Rebel ship. Still might not be enough to make up the length difference though.
I made the image originally just to show that even though some parts match up, you can't turn one model of Y-Wing into the other by removing some hull plating (note the astromech slot is also different, it's in the orange circle for the older ship and a little behind that for the newer one).
In any case, I'm more inclined to believe the 16.24 m are correct. It goes back a long way in Legends, and fits with the relative sizes of original filming models to each other and the absolute sizes compared to their astromechs (I made another comparison image for that a while back: https://i.imgur.com/7skkD2B.png ), which leads me to believe someone put some thought into determining it, and it wasn't just plucked out of thin air.
And as said, it fits the films: That shot on Yavin is probably the best comparison of Y- to X-Wings in them, and they just don't look that big.

@bananaman: I'm not denying it's not a beautiful model. But Lego putting a figure in that cockpit does not make the ship minifig scale, just like putting an astromech figure in 10240 doesn't make that minifig scale.
Lego's scaling should also not be seen as authoritative in the slightest. They're off more often than they're right, for better reasons (making sets of capital ships possible) or worse (whatever happened with 75199).

Gravatar
By in Canada,

This set adds to my desire to sell off my entire SW UCS collection to fund other Lego themes. Re-issue of previous UCS sets, abundance of stickers for critical features, scale issues, and several inaccuracies. Lego can do better; we should expect better.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@bananaworld you couldn't have sait it better. We have to remember that its fiction and not to get too worked up about it.

@bbeck018 no don't worry. Bespin will come out later this year. Lego has formed the habit of releasing a smaller, more accurate (usually) model around may and a larger, play set style (usually) set around september/october. This years will be bespin.

As for the model, I love it. I think I'm actually going to choose this over Ninjago City, Carousel, and Snowspeeder.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Blah.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I personally think it is pointless with a smaller version released not to long ago. And why is the term UCS so steriotipical against Assault on Hoth. I think it was a great set. If UCS means it sits on a shelf and gets dusty forever then I don’t want any UCS.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'll need to take a closer look, but unlike last year's Snowspeeder, I'm not sure this is enough of an improvement over 10134 to justify a $200 purchase.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Woohoo ! I really like this model, and as I do not have the one from years gone by, definite purchase for me. Now I just need to have a UCS ISD !

I don't really understand the disapproval for the smaller model release at the same time, isn't this catering to both markets, the kids who want to whoosh and play and those that want to whoosh and play with more parts and put it on their shelves? It makes each model more accessible to more people at different price points. Isn't this exactly what a toy aimed at kids, with an AFOL fan base should be doing - providing choice?

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Lovely re-release (didn't get the original as it was released during my dark ages), even though it's quite disappointing that TLG is using so many stickers (we've got used to it by now) and especially didn't give any arm printing to the minifigure…

As a side note, it's 30 euros more expensive in the Benelux for no reason at all (just like the Snowspeeder), which already justifies a trip to Cologne (also to buy additional less expensive sets) instead of the more nearby Wijnegem store (where I will only buy sets that cost the same price as in other countries). (I could have gone to Lille, but there are no sausage street vendors out there :P.)

Gravatar
By in Luxembourg,

Just picked up the Y-wing from last year for €50 that will do me. I'll save for future UCS sets that I may want more. It's difficult to budget this year as there has been much fewer reveals of summer sets than usual.

Happy for the people who want this one though.

Gravatar
By in Romania,

Most probably i will skip this, it is not worth the money when compared to the 2017 rogue one x-wing where you get 5 figs, 4 of those are exclusive and got 3 for under 40 euros each. compared to 200 euro set with only 2 figs. The look is awesome to bad they didn't make the side opening canopy like in the movie.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

UCS sets are very rarely about exclusive minifigures. It's the bricks and the build experience that you're buying ;-)

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

^...and the stickers.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So is this actually minifigure scale? I only own Slave 1 and the Falcon from the UCS series and I thought they were both minifigure scale (although Slave 1 seem too big to me).

The Snowspeeder is clearly bigger as, I think, is the Red 5 X-Wing.

The Minifigure scale Tag in the database only brings up Slave 1, the Imperial Shuttle and original Falcon.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

`@magpie couldn't agree more with your comments on stickers.
UCS is a prestige/premium line with an associated price tag intended for display.
The inclusion of stickers is very poor form from Lego.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Something that always bothered me about LEGO’s treatment of the Y-Wing is that they never quite get some of the shaping of the ‘head’ right. Any reference image shows that it should be flatter with the cockpit/windscreen smaller and sleeker in relation to the rest of the head. Admittedly, this has improved over time with the system scale Y-Wings - whilst still being confined to using the same cockpit for nearly the last 20 years - but it’s a shame to see the similar shaping here to that of the previous UCS Y-Wing when this could have been much improved/more accurate.

With so many new cockpits introduced to the system range as a whole it’s surprising there’s not been more investment in the nuancing between different Star War vehicles, especially given the return of investment there must be on the theme as a whole...

Gravatar
By in Jordan,

@bananaworld: The first thing that came to my mind when I read charlott's reply to me was pretty much: "Maybe the inconsistency is due to the fact that the Y-wing is a fictional vehicle". You are absolutely right that we sometimes need to be reminded that we are simply discussing toys and fictional stories when we start to get all technical and exacting.

BTW, stuffing a Duplo figure into the cockpit must be the best idea I've heard all day XD

Gravatar
By in United States,

How about a Jack Stone figure?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@ KyloRen0806: You probably mean that the price of these sets is higher than the piece count DIVIDED BY TEN; that's all I was trying to say.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

More concerning to me than the cockpit is how the “retractable landing skids” don’t appear to be recessed. They retract at an angle. Have to wait and see I guess.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I personally think that the in universe y-wing is ugly. The rear section of it looks skeletal and open, and the color scheme doesn’t seem to fit with the white and yellow. However, I love A New Hope, so I can’t help but feel nostalgic when seeing this.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Brick Dangerous: Not sure what you mean. This only thing I want to say is that you say “the price is fortunately always...”. After, I talk about that this aren’t always happening. Then I write some examples to explain my comment. The price isn’t less than the pieces included always, it also happens that it’s the reverse

Gravatar
By in Jordan,

@AdamDaLegoGuy: That's the point, it's meant to look skeletal, ugly, and unfinished because most of its outer hull plating has been removed.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So it does look as though this model is a bit smaller dimensionally than 10134. New 61cm x 30cm x 7cm, original UCS 57.5cm x 38.3cm x 9cm? It's a bit of a shame that Lego didn't use this opportunity to present the Y-Wing with an alternate colour livery/marking, Red would have been nice. I still have the original UCS Y-Wing and these two might look a little odd together.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

Some very immature people commenting here - you're seriously going to sell of your UCS collection and not buy any more Star Wars Lego because in your mind its not to correct scale? Really?

I am looking forward to the release of the new y-wing star fighter. It looks very awesome, and like a nice build. I am excited for the re-release. may 4th can't come any sooner.
