Leaked earlier this year from a Dutch toy site, we now have pictures and data about this year's second LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collectors exclusive: 10227 B-wing Starfighter. Here's the lowdown: $199 USD, 1,428 pieces, available starting in October from LEGO Shop@Home and Brand Retail locations. The model appears to be larger than minifig scale and does not include any minifigures. It's kind of a missed opportunity, though. I would have loved a proper minifig-scaled UCS B-wing. The UCS Falcon and Imperial Shuttle before it worked really well; the Executor, not so much. Anyways, pics below, followed by the designer video whenever they decide to make it public, and finally the official press releaes after that.
