Last week, LEGO officially announced the LEGO Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City (75222) and if you looked closely at the press release, you would have seen that the set is part of the LEGO Star Wars Master Builder Series and not the Ultimate Collectors Series. Fans have been wondering what the Master Builder Series is and will it be replacing the UCS theme and we’ve finally got an official statement from the LEGO Star Wars team which you can read below.
The Master Builder Series models are large playsets and beside being complex builds they are characterized by having many play features and functions, interior details as well as a range of minifigures. Ultimate Collectors series will remain highly detailed display models providing complex builds with a focus on authenticity and both Ultimate Collectors Series and Master Builder Series will continue as a way to highlight the unique characteristic of each style of model.
After reading the statement, are you relieved that playsets are no longer classified as UCS but will be part of the Master Builder Series? Sound off in the comments below.
