Finally after months of speculation, the LEGO Ultimate Collectors (UCS) Series Snowspeeder (75144) is officially revealed!
The set will contain 1,703 pieces and retail for US $199.99 / CA $229.99 / DE 199.99€ / UK £169.99 / DK 1799.00 DKK.
It will feature the iconic rotating rear gun as well as functioning air brakes. I would categorise this as an update rather than a re-release of the existing Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder (10129) as the new one is more “movie-accurate” than its’ predecessor which had a shallower canopy.
There are two snowspeeder pilot minifigures included which are exclusive to this set. Judging from the helmet designs, the minifigure with the white helmet should be Luke Skywalker.
The other minifigure should either be Wedge Antilles or Zev Senesca who are the only two Snowspeeder pilots I remember with black helmets. Both minifigures come with arm prints.
The LEGO UCS Snowspeeder will be available on April 29th for LEGO VIP members and the public on May the 4th 2017, just in time for Star Wars Celebration!
Here is the designer video by Bjorn and Tom that shows us a lot more detail:
