Boba Fett's Slave 1 Gets the Lego UCS Treatment
Boba Fett’s starship, Slave 1, appeared briefly in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back, but like its popular bounty hunter, it captured the imagination of generations of fans.
The ship will now join the ranks of Lego’s high-end Ultimate Collector’s Series line, which consists mostly of highly intricate Star Wars products such as the Millennium Falcon, an Ewok Village and a Sandcrawler, among over two dozen others. (Batman is the only other brand repped in the UCS, with this year’s Tumbler one of the two products out there.)
Lego made the official reveal of the toy on Friday night at Seattle’s BrickCon 2014. (It’s the 13th year for the event, which attracts adult Lego hobbyists.)
Just like Fett himself, this brick ship isn’t for the meek. The set, serial number 75060, will consists of almost 2,000 pieces (1,996 to be exact), and measure 7” (20cm) high, 17” (45cm) long, and 14” (37cm) wide. It will only be available through Lego stores or Lego.com and retail for $199.99.
The set also comes with five mini-figures. Brick fans will notice that Fett has a new printing and the Bespin Guard is new.
Lego previously made a Slave 1 that was geared towards ages 14 and under and had fewer than 600 pieces.
