The Lego Group has officially released details about the highly anticipated UCS set 75144 Snowspeeder that will be released for May the 4th. The set contains 1,703 pieces and will retail at $199.99. It is a complete redesign from the first UCS version of this iconic vehicle, 10129 Rebel Snowspeeder, and costs about $70 more at only 246 more parts. The new version includes 2 minifigures: a Rebel Snowspeeder Pilot and a Rebel Snowspeeder Gunner, and it has some new features such as air brakes that can be opened by turning the back of the turbolasers. It also features a lot more details than the original, but most of them are achieved with the use of an enormous sticker sheet which might be off-putting to some builders. Do you think it’s on improvement or a step back? Check out the Designer video below, then head over to the discussion thread to see the press release and let us know your thoughts!
