It’s that time again of the year when rumors of upcoming LEGO direct-to-consumer sets are starting to come in and for May the 4th, I’ve been told from an anonymous source that it will be the LEGO Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder (75144). I’ve correlated this information with another of my sources and they do match up so it looks like it may be true. There was talk of this set last year but there was no concrete information on it except for a listing on Brickset.
LEGO has released a UCS Snowspeeder before with set 10129 back in 2003 which had 1,455 pieces and retailed for $130 but the info I got today states the new one will go for $199.99, as UCS sets usually go for these days. If this information is correct, that means the rumored UCS Millennium Falcon could be the UCS set for the second half of the year.
