Last year saw a wave of buildable helmets debut alongside the May the 4th UCS set, which is likely going to be the case with many of these rumored creations. But as for the UCS Death Star? Expect to see it be this year’s Black Friday set. I know it’s a long way away, but given how LEGO handled the Colosseum, it’s likely that a similar rollout and all of the same fanfare will be applied here to bring in shoppers during the future holiday shopping season.
The spring has also been giving Star Wars fans a new buildable character, and this year’s looks to be a remake of the UCS R2-D2 from several years back. This time around, expect a much more modern design than the predecessor and much of the same attention to detail we’ve seen from other sets that are geared towards adults, as well as a bundled display plaque.
