UCS B-Wing Starfighter

Name of Model: B-Wing Starfighter™
Created by the LEGO company
Found at: http://shop.lego.com/en-US/B-Wing-Starfighter-10227
We've fallen somewhat behind in covering headline-grabbing new kits recently, but LEGO is still churning them out. One of the ones we missed was the latest Ultimate Collector Series Star Wars kit - the B-Wing Starfighter. From the October 1st release date to December 31st (or while supplies last), LEGO is including an exclusive TC-14 minifigure with the purchase of the 10227 B-Wing Starfighter. Like the last few UCS kits, this one is nicely in minifig scale (as compared to the regular kits, which usually have strange proportions in order to fit minifigures). Both Jedi News and FBTB have reviewed the kit, which looks like an interesting build.

Here's the official announcement:
10227 B-Wing Starfighter™

Ages 16+. 1,486 pieces.

US $199.99 CA $249.99 DE 199.99€ UK 169.99£ DK 1699 DKK
