Yeah, so the leaked image was indeed real, and I was right about the release date being on or around May the Fourth. 75181 LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-Wing Starfighter will be released exactly on May 4th, 2018 for $199.99.
Like I told Ryan, a new UCS Y-wing is great and all, but honestly the first one was so good I don’t know why it needed a re-release. LEGO probably wanted to get in on the aftermarket money cause there are still some ships and vehicles that could use the UCS treatment. A-wing, Landspeeder, AT-AT, I’d even suggest a Jedi Starfighter that doesn’t suck.
Two hundred big ones will get you 1,967 pieces, Dutch “Gold Leader” Vander, his sidekick droid R2-BHD, and the usual display stand. The goods are below.
