During the last week of January, LEGO Star Wars fans were busy choosing a model for one of the next Ultimate Collector Series LEGO Star Wars sets. Finally, the results of the fan vote are in, and the winner has just been announced on the LEGO Ideas blog. According to the results, the absolute winner is the Republic Gunship. The spaceship got more than 50% of the votes.
We have no idea what exactly the final product will look like. LEGO doesn’t share any details on when the set might be available, promising it will be one of the next Ultimate Collector Series LEGO Star Wars sets.
The fan’s number two pick is Nebulon B Escort Frigate followed by the TIE Bomber. None of these two is popular enough to beat the iconic Republic Gunship.
Additionally, three lucky voters will be receiving the UCS Republic Gunship (once it is released), as well as a LEGO Star Wars 75255 Yoda set. If you cast your vote, keep your eyes on your inbox as you might be one of the winners.
What a shame to get a retread instead of something new.
I do hope Lego just postponed the realisation of the other two ideas. As a fan of the original trilogy’s big space battles I need a Nebulon B…
Also because I feel there is little hope for anything but a UCS version to do the ship justice.
It’s been years since we’ve gotten a prequel era UCS. About time!
Isn’t this ship from one of the bad movies?
Anyone secretly hoping that a UCS Ebon Hawk will happen?
Sooo. Let me get this straight. People want play sets VS actual UCS? Booo no Nebulon B!!!!!!!! I thought people are largely disliking large “USC” style sets like this gunship may end up being. It’s going to have to have a lot of figures to cover all the aspects of the ship. It has at least 6 to 8 crew with all the gun turrets. Then you need riders unless they don’t minifig scale it.
The TIE Bomber never gets any love!
