After the disappointing 75098 Assault on Hoth set released last year, LEGO Star Wars fans are keen for this years May The 4th release to be something more exciting and I definitely think it is…
Announcing 75144 Snowspeeder
Based on vehicle from the iconic opening battle of The Empire Strikes Back this is a true UCS set – a highly detailed model featuring 1,703 pieces and a display stand with fact plaque.
While Assault on Hoth was a large play set this set is a fantastic display piece that will look great among any Star Wars fan’s collection.
The set will be available to VIPs on April 29th, with general availability on May 4th (Star Wars Day). The information I was sent didn’t include an Australian RRP but I will update as soon as I know. The US price is $199.99, which is likely to equate to $299.99 – $349.99 here.
You can view additional high-resolution images, the press release and designer video below (I’ll update with a YouTube version of the video when it’s available).
Ages 14+. 1,703 pieces.
