LEGO Star Wars Slave I Exclusive Print Revealed

Earlier today, artist Tom Whalen has shared an image of an exclusive LEGO Star Wars promotional print that should’ve been released last month at Walmart. The print shows the Slave I (75243) along with Boba Fett in the background. As far as I know, Walmart never released this print in stores or online and I haven’t heard about any upcoming promotions for it. It’s still possible that it could be released later this year but there’s no guarantees. As of this time, we know that this print was commissioned by LEGO but it has seemingly gone into the abyss. Tom’s unique style of art has previously been used before for other LEGO prints including the Marvel and DC ones from SDCC 2017. Thanks to Chris for the heads up.

Update: Apparently, there was a promotion for it at Walmart but only at five locations in the US. Five. Thanks to Jason for the info!

LEGO Blacktron II Inspired UCS Slave One

The LEGO Star Wars UCS Slave I (75060) has inspired many color swaps of the ship from Jango Fett to the White Prototype Boba Fett. One build that I came across on Reddit by Alg3braic is a LEGO Blacktron II inspired Slave One and I was drawn to it because I’m very partial to the Blacktron theme from the late 80s to the early 90s.

The build uses mostly the design of the official UCS Slave I but there’s also some customization to it especially the canopy area which took some ingenuity to implement the Blacktron canopy piece. Check out more images of the set in the link above.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Slave I (76060) Revealed

LEGO Star Wars UCS Slave I (76060)

Just2Good on YouTube has revealed images of the new LEGO Star Wars UCS Slave I (76060). We’ve been reporting that this was the set that has been rumored and now we finally get to see some of the images of it.

More images will be revealed on Eurobricks but from what we can see so far, there will be four minifigures and the Carbonite Han piece. It will have 1996 pieces and will retail for $199.99 as reported on BrickPicker a few months ago.

Some details that can be seen is the new arm printing that Boba Fett has as well as the Bespin Guard minifigure. The box does have the Ultimate Collector’s Series badge on the bottom left corner so it will indeed be an UCS set, much like what the Sandcrawler (79059) has.

Now we just have to wait for the rest of the images as well as the official LEGO press release for more details of the UCS Slave I but in the meantime, check out some of the images below. My guess is that the set will be revealed on October 6th, according to the store calendar.

More Reports of LEGO UCS Slave I Releasing in 2014

DarthAlex92 on Eurobricks has reported that they have some information of a new UCS LEGO Star Wars Slave I that may be released later this year. As we reported last year, there was a rumor already that the Slave I could be coming out this year. So now there are two reports that the Slave I would become an UCS set so it’s plausible that the rumor may be true.

For the details of the UCS Slave I, it will be Boba Fett’s version and will include a brand new Boba Fett minifigure. The model of the Slave I will be similar in size of the new Imperial Star Destroyer (75055).

The information above was acquired by the DarthAlex92 from a LEGO product design manager. What are you thoughts of the new Slave I?

Update: Ed over on Brickpicker “confirms” that the set will have set number 75060 and will be priced at $199.99. Brickset already has the listing in its database as well with the same set number.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Slave I in 2014?

Rumors have starting swirling about a new LEGO Star Wars UCS set that may be coming out in 2014. Over on Eurobricks, members mentioned that the newest Ultimate Collector’s Series set could be the Slave I. If Slave I was to come out in 2014, my guess is that it could be during LEGO’s “May the 4th Be With You” promotions since the company has released various UCS sets around that time including the R2-D2 (10225) in 2012 and the Red Five X-wing Starfighter (10240) from this year.

LEGO has released quite a few versions of the Slave I including some oddball sets such as the MINI version during Star Wars Celebration VI. There have been many memorable Star Wars vehicles that have become UCS sets but one of the most iconic ships hasn’t been featured yet. Maybe 2014 will be the time for the Slave I to make it’s mark as an Ultimate Collector’s Series set.
