Better Look At New UCS Y-Wing

Hot on the heels of the photograph that emerged via one of the LEGO Certified Stores in Dubai is the official designer video for the upcoming 75181 UCS Y-Wing Starfighter. Jordan Scott (senior set designer) and Maddy O’Neil (graphics designer) provide an up-close look at this new addition to the Ultimate Collector’s Series.

Jordan explains the three-year-long design process, the fun he had at designing the detail of the set and exposes why the Y-wing has no armour plating, while Maddy goes into both the minifig print design and the rendering involved to digitally recreate the vehicle. Both presenters are energetic and exuberant about their new contribution to the LEGO Star Wars pantheon and display a level of excitement that is sure to elevate your enthusiasm.

But keep your emotions in check because 75181 UCS Y-Wing Starfighter isn’t ready to enter the fray until May 4th when it goes on sale – exclusively – at their shop@home online portal and bricks and mortar LEGO stores around the world. And don’t forget that if you purchase this set over the weekend of May 4/5/6th you’ll qualify for a free 40288 BB-8 polybag (while stocks last).
