Apart from that, it looks good, but so does the system one - it doesn't look massively better.
I will probably still get it when a decent price comes along, but once again the US get a massively better deal on RRP and will probably see it reduced earlier than the rest of us as there are more places selling this "exclusive" over there than in Europe.
Personally I'm gutted they have wasted a release slot as this year is my 40th birthday and I was going to get my family to buy me this years UCS set as my prezzy. (And then leave me alone to biuld it)
Having the original I'd have preferred a previously unreleased model but in saying that it does look good and is great for those who haven't got the original. Probably still get one at some point to keep my UCS collection complete though.
For those comparing it to the good looking system model, don't be fooled the UCS sets are substantially bigger and better.
As for me...woohoo!! I might finally be able to afford a UCS X-wing! Great news for collectors who haven't been around since the dawn of Lego SW!
Seeing lots of comments like these.
I wonder if it's fair to assume, that with such a longer contract with lucasfilms, and the fact that new movies are coming out, if we'll see a re-hash of the 10179?
Honestly, I don't know how they can make it any better, but in my opinion this new X-Wing isn't that much better than the system/first one.
Guess we'll just have to wait and see :-)
Sounds like a plan @emmtwosix. Think I will take some pictures and post it tonight. It was my first UCS set but if I held onto everything that had sentimental value in my life, my house would become a storage unit.
Being fairly similar means you don't necessarily have to buy the newer version, if you have the first, because it's not that much different as a model.
You can skip it if you have the original, get it if you didn't, and if you have all of them, it's still different enough in construction and part selection that it's arguably worth picking up (which, if you had all of them, might not have been an option anyway.)

With a bit of luck, it's going to be a playset... just like we have two Death Stars in the 10xxx range.
Making it into more of a playset like @mressin mentioned makes more sense and will likely sell a lot more.
Quite a watershed in the history of the UCS line. There is already talk of various sets being re issued or re vamped. Time will tell but if this is a good seller from TLGs point of view then I think its inevitable. I don't see that as a bad thing so long as reasonable lengths of time are left between releases.
@kevbags *cough* checkthestartofthethread *cough* ;)
*EDIT by STAFF* TLG has asked us to remove these pictures. Please do not post these pictures yet. Their official release will be soon.
If I was a reseller with one stashed away for resale, I would be looking to get rid of it quickly, as that premium price is going to nose dive.
I have said this before and got shouted down, but I think it's pretty likely we will get another UCS Falcon during this ten year contract extension. Lego is a business, and they know that this time it would sell incredibly well.
In the past 10 months I have purchased about 10 of the UCS models ,most well over retail, and yet I find these 200 dragons hard to spill . I know I will eventually pick it up , but it will have to be on sale .
In case of the b- wing , the reasoning that the larger plates included may have been the reason for its 200 mark . But in the present case of the x- wing I just can't find that argument to have a leg to stand on . $ 150 would be reasonable and 175 should be the upper limit. It's always good to see a new UCS , just not over the moon with this offering, and that's a statement In itself.
