Lego has now announced it will be releasing a brand new and detailed figure of the Y-Wing that originally featured in the original Star Wars trilogy.

This is part of the "Ultimate Collector Series" line which means it's bigger and more expensive than other Lego sets.

Lego announced the new toy over on the official website. The Y-Wing first appeared in Star Wars: A New Hope back in 1977 and has always been a fan favorite alongside the X-Wing and A-Wing in the original trilogy. 

The release date for the USC Y-Wing is May 4th, 2018 and it will have a retail recommended price of $199. The figure measures 2 inches high, 24 inches long, and 11 inches wide and also comes included with its own stand. 

In terms of minifigures, buyers can fit Gold Leader inside of the cockpit while the droid R2-BHD can be slotted at the back of the vehicle.

The whole set comes with a total of 1967 pieces meaning it should take you a long time to build it.

The UCS Y-Wing is much cheaper than the UCS Millennium Falcon that came out last year prior to the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That figure has over 8000 pieces and retails for around $800!

Anyway, the next Star Wars movie fans can look forward to is Solo: A Star Wars Story. The aforementioned film will be available for you to watch in cinemas across North America on May 25th, 2018.
