LEGO® Ideas has launched a new Fan Vote, in which you can help decide what a future LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Series set will be! There are three Star Wars ships to choose from including a Nebulon Escort Frigate, a TIE Bomber and a Republic Gunship. You can vote for which ship you would like to see given the UCS treatment here, you’ll also be asked to suggest which characters you’ll like to see included as Minifigures. I’m sure you’ll all agree the Republic Gunship would make an amazing UCS set and is something different, as we have had a TIE before and the Frigate could look a little boring. So choose wisely. The three models are:
Nebulon B Escort Frigate
Originally intended for the Imperial Navy, these ships were used as convoy escorts and made their first appearance in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and appear again, in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and even in Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.
Like a big brother version of the TIE Fighters, these ships were created to destroy large starships and not for fast paced combat. With dual hulls, one for the pilot and one for the warhead launchers, this ship features in both Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
Who can forget the epic moment these ships dropped into the arena carrying the clones in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones during the Battle of Geonosis, rescuing Padmé and Jedi from Count Dooku.
