  1. Could 75309 be a UCS Razorcrest? Stock in the Mandalorian is at an all time high (and I'm not sure season 3 will top that season 2 ending), loads of my friend's kids got the system Razorcrest for Xmas and the price could fit. Whatever happened to the UCS Shuttle rumour - was it confusion over what would be the system set? If not then that's a possibility at this price point. I admit my thoughts are biased as I prefer vehicles to playsets.
  2. Do we know much more about the UCS Shuttle? How certain are folks that this is going to be out this year? Hoping that it's the Tyderium with the heroes in forest camo to differentiate it from the previous release that came with Imperial figures (+Jedi Luke).

    Official UCS set versions of popular MOCs?

    I'm sure I read somewhere that the UCS Imperial Shuttle that Lego released took a lot of inspiration from a fan build. I don't have the info to hand but maybe someone else knows more? If that's the case then they've already done it once. :-)
  4. Is there any solid info yet on set 75291? At that price point I'm hoping for a B-Wing as one of the only OT rebel ships not to have had a release in the last few years. I'd even take a Resistance B-Wing at this point (not sure what the differences are as it wasn't obvious while watching TROS). My X, Y and A-Wings need a new B-Wing.

    10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle Mod

    Please add me to the list. :-)
  6. Oh, I appreciate that. The Falcon as a standalone ship looks great but I'm looking to build the Home One hanger at some point with the UCS Falcon, the Imperial shuttle and assorted A-Wings, Y-Wings, X-Wings and B-Wings (come on Lego - release a new system scale B-Wing!). Now I know the shuttle is slightly too small next to the Falcon but I've raised the legs on it by a full block and I believe if I lower the Falcon by just one block the two ships will look closer to the way they look in the movie.
  7. Has anyone yet modded the legs/feet of the Falcon. Watched Empire over the weekend and realised that in the movie the characters can easily reach the underside of the ship. In fact Chewbacca has to duck as he walks down the loading ramp at the end. By contrast on the UCS model you'd need 2 figures stood on top of each other to reach the underside.

    75181 UCS Y-Wing Starfighter cockpit mod

    This is ace. I don't suppose anyone has a System X-Wing (75218 preferred) they could photograph next to the UCS Y-Wing. I have the System scale Y-wing but it seems a touch too small. I think the UCS will be too big with the sweet spot looking like it should be half way between the two but curious either way.

    ucs scale between falcon and TIE

    I'd go with the most recent System scale TIE (the Solo one). Probably as close as you'll get. I have it but it's not yet built so I can't take a photo to show the size comparison. I'm a minifig-scale only collector so I have the UCS Falcon sat alongside the most recent System scale X-Wing, Y-Wing and a couple of A-Wings and it looks great. Just got the UCS Shuttle (not built yet) as I'm aiming for a Home One Hangar scene from ROTJ in mini-fig scale. :-) In flight mode I'm thinking the Shuttle will look awesome flanked either side by a TIE-Fighter.
  10. 10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle. Not brand new but close - the box had been opened but the bags were all sealed. Managed to get it off eBay for £360 which is about a hundred pound cheaper than I've seen fully opened and used sets go for. Looking forward to building it so the Falcon and Slave 1 have company. :-)
  11. Probably to give any kids that buy both sets the 2 characters that no doubt appeal most to young children - C3-PO and R2-D2.

    UCS Slave 1 mod

    I've got this still in it's box as it was on sale recently - but it's an Xmas present. Looking forward to the build but will definitely do the anti-sagging mod. Those lights look excellent. Any chance of more of a breakdown showing how they're fitted? And yes, the paddles look more accurate. Not sure I'll make similar changes myself but it will be tempting. Those lights though. :-)

    Display for Star Wars UCS sets?

    This thread would be far more interesting if folks posted photos of their current display. I currently only have the Falcon but I'm looking forward to putting some kind of hangar display together in some kind of case featuring the system scale (and therefore in sale more with the Falcon itself) A-Wings, X-Wing and Y-Wing. Then I'll be a B-Wing and the UCS Imperial Shuttle away from recreating the Home One Hangar from Return of the Jedi. #lifegoals

    Future Star Wars Sets

    Does anyone else think/hope we'll see a new System scale B-Wing next year? We had the X-Wing this year, the Rogue One Y-Wing last year and, I think, the last A-Wing came out just before that. As far as trends go I think there's room for optimism despite the last set having been released in 2014.
