LEGO unveils today via its official online store a new reference in the Star Wars range: the set 75355 Ultimate Collector Series X-wing Starfighter. This box of 1949 pieces will be available at the retail price of €239.99 as a VIP preview from May 1, 2023 before global availability announced for May 4.
In the bags, enough to assemble a new exhibition version of the X-wing which will therefore take over from that of the set 10240 Red Five X-Wing Starfighter (1558 pieces) marketed between 2013 and 2015 at the retail price of €219.99. We especially remember the infamous sticker to stick on the canopy of the cockpit of this 2013 X-wing...
Two minifigures are included: a minifigure of Luke Skywalker in a new version and a minifigure of R2-D2 with pad printing on both sides already seen in the LEGO Star Wars Diorama Collection set 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor marketed since last year.
LEGO is making a big effort this year with two pad-printed elements: the canopy of the ship and the presentation plate usually dressed with a big sticker. The presentation plate will also retain its large injection point in the middle of the room: This technical detail was in the past covered by the sticker, it now becomes clearly visible even if LEGO has tried to minimize the effect on some official visuals retouched.
