    Thoughts? I’d ask for a discount due to the crease top right ;-)

    Or or is it a crease? Hard to tell on my phone.

    EDIT: just saved the pic in case it is asked to be removed. But if it is, I won’t post it.

    @iso3200 funny that was my first thought - can you save 20% because it's technically a damaged set! Such is the AFOL mindset. We get an early reveal of a new set and without even knowing it's price we need a discount! 

    Looks like a nice set, though a lot of parts will have gone into greebling so I hope the cost reflects that there are a lot of smaller parts.

    That will do me nicely - it looks to be a worthy successor to #10134

    It will be interesting to see the UK RRP; it looks almost identical to #75060 so hopefully it'll be £179.99.  Definitely a day one purchase for me, I assume that it will be May 4th?

    I think it was rumored to be $200

    I like the new branding! Hope all future UCS sets have it

    Yes, there was meant to be a picture. Apparently, it never attached. Thanks @CM4S

    Just searched 'lego 75181' on ebay and a UK seller has a Gold Leader minifigure from this set up for sale apparently.  Just to add to of everyone's speculation...

    Are those the old wagon wheels from the fantasy era troll sets at the end of the rockets?! That is a bold choice.

    Nice.

    Looks to have taken some styling cues from the Rogue One Y-Wing (with the sand blue canopy and copper pipework) then plus sized everything. 

    Will not be able to resist the urge to purchase for long with this one (the Rogue One set was one of my favourites). 
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,572
    Well, I've largely been able to convince myself I won't ever go down the UCS rabbit hole as I just can't financially afford it. But dangit! Y-Wings have always been my favorite. I missed a local sale of the original UCS for $100 a few months back and still am not really over it. 

    If this one is anywhere under $200, I'm going to have a hard time not snatching it up instantly.

    I am loving the falcon reminiscent box art furthermore the greebling all over the ship looks absolutely wonderful.

  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,241
    Awesome, love the box art style.  Agree with @CM4S and hope they keep it.

    Never been a big fan of the ship, and I'm still not convinced, but I'll probably end up getting it!

    Bold is one word. Lazy is another I'd use. I would just think to do the aerodynamic flap (whatever-you-call-it), they could have been a little more creative than a wheel.
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,086
    Looks promising but, as usually, there are much better MOC's out there already. I wish they would have redid the canopy instead of recycling the "old standard". The profile is too high.

    Can we tell if it's (roughly) to scale with the UCS Red Five?
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 5,831
    Not usually one to hate on stickers but holy crap the yellow striping suffers for it big time. If they can print Brickheadz and Jrs. sets you have to do better on something called ''Ultimate".

    I want it, but I don't desperately want it. Prepared to wait for a deal if May 4th offers or Black card offers are poor.

    I can live with those stickers...but those on the windscreen look more pesky to me. :-(

    Only way I'm buying this without a discount is if there's a Falcon Black Card offer, or a Leicester Square launch/signing event.

    Don't get me wrong, the UK price is good, but I don't care enough about the subject to buy it at that price. :)

    So, does this move the possibility of a new Cloud City to the fall, then?
  • redarmyredarmy AberdeenMember Posts: 711
    Doesn't half look fragile though..
  • LobotLobot UKMember Posts: 942

    That's definitely a day one purchase for me :-)

    Great looking set, nearly 2,000 parts for £169.99, it's almost in bargain territory!

    Was there already a ucs y wing? Did lepin maybe have one? I swear I've seen this build prior to this release
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,572
    @Robobrick427 Lego released #10134 in 2004. This is an updated version.

    I believe that has been the expectation all along (the UCS “CC” set, that no-one is sure is really Cloud City).

    CC could also be Corellian Cruiser, more commonly known as the Rebel Blockade Runner. I might have a laugh if that turns out to be the case, especially with all the hype about a Cloud City.

    I will probably get this set (to go with the Red Five X-Wing and TIE Fighter), but I'd still prefer for a UCS A-Wing to finally happen.

    That is a lovely piece. Any confirmation on a UK price? And is it one eBay with a 20%+ mark-up yet?

    What will happen with the 2004 UCS Y-Wing? What kind of prices is it going for now, and what's the prediction for impact after the release?

    With no knowledge of this re-release, I sold a sealed 10134 a few months ago for US$800 (to be used towards the purchase of a 75192). I don't think I'd be able to get that price now.

    Prices will plunge down to $275-$300 sealed.

    There has been speculation to that effect, but I’ve seen no confirmation.

    Nice to see TLG going totally in Universe and following the close to BBY Rebel Alliance policy of tacking whatever crap they can find lying around together to keep the boys flying!
      While the overall dimensions of the nacelles appears to have been corrected there's still a LOT of inaccuracies.  Add to this the fact it's got a pair of catapult wheels strapped to the back of it and this release just feels sooo lazy.  
      When looking at this next to Red 5, Snowspeeder and Falcon rereleases it looks like a phone in!
      I'll be intruiged to work out where it falls regarding minifig scale (as it appears based on released pictures that this was TLGs aim).

    You might be able to catch someone out and get a similar price for now, but time is very limited. I reckon $300+ is unlikely once the new one is out.

    The Star Destroyer in the background on the 75192 Falcon box all but confirms it.
