LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train (10254) and Star Wars Death Star (75159) Now Available for VIPs

LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train (10254)

The holiday season is slowly creeping up and to kick it off, the LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train (10254)icon is now available for VIP members on [email protected] and at LEGO Brand Stores. The set contains 734 pieces and retails for $99.99.

Unlike last year when LEGO released the Winter Toy Shop (10249)icon, a lot of people were upset that it was basically just a re-release of a previous set however, the Winter Holiday Train is not a copy of the 10173 set from 2006. This set also has 16 curved train tracks included so you can create a whole circle. You can also motorize the train with Power Functionsicon but they are not included with the set.

The other set is that available for VIPs today is the LEGO Star Wars Death Star (75159)icon. This version of the Death Star has similar features to the previous 10188 version but has slight updates and a couple of new minifigures. Although a lot of Star Wars fans may not like it because it’s pretty much a rehash of the old one, it is geared towards fans who have just started collecting LEGO Star Wars and missed out on the previous version which was recently retired. The Death Star (75159) will have 4,016 pieces and retail for $499.99.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Death Star (75159) Officially Announced

LEGO Star Wars UCS Death Star (75159)

LEGO has finally announced the next LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Series set with the updated Death Star (75159). It hasn’t been much of a secret the past couple of weeks but there are now official details of the set. It will have 4,016 pieces and retails for $499.99 which is 213 pieces and $100 more than the recently retired 10188 version.

Although there are many, many fans that aren’t impressed with it, the main appeal is to those who weren’t able to get the previous version or for new LEGO fans who has just started collecting LEGO Star Wars sets. I do understand the animosity against the new set when it was first “revealed” because there are very minor updates to it but at a higher price point. For those individuals, that means you can save your money and use it on other LEGO sets that interest you more.

One thing to note in the press release notes was that the UCS Death Star (75159) is not an indication of any future re-release or set updates.
