LEGO Star Wars UCS Red Five X-wing Starfighter (10240)

At LEGO World in Copenhagen, LEGO has officially announced the next LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Set, the Red Five X-wing Starfighter (10240). A few days ago, Kevin Hinkle did mention that a new exclusive set will be revealed outside the US and today, we now know what that set will be. The X-wing will contain 1558 pieces and will retail for $199.99. It will be released in May 2013. This is the second incarnation of the X-wing with the first one being released back in 2000 (7191). Like the previous model, this X-wing will also include a R2-D2 minifigure which we probably have about 3 or 4 of already.

With the release of this X-wing, I feel that the phrase “Ultimate Collectors” is diminished because in my opinion, sets shouldn’t be remakes of previous models but something new that haven’t been released before. On the other side of the coin, it’s nice for newer collectors who didn’t get a chance to get it the first time around. With that said, I’ll probably be picking it up since I got back from my “Dark Ages” a little late.
