Lego is Letting Fans Vote on Which Star Wars Model Will Be Next in the Ultimate Collector Series

By Shabana Arif on at

The set is inevitably going to be super expensive, so this way you can at least have some input before dropping hundreds of pounds.

Lego has announced that it's taking votes from fans for its next Ultimate Collector Series set, giving the cross-section of Lego and Star Wars fans three models to choose from. Votes are open until 10am on January 30, and all you have to do is head to the voting site, and click the picture of which one you'd like to see become a reality. You can even make a suggestion for a minifig - Star Wars only, in case that wasn't clear.

Previous Star Wars UCS sets have included the 4,784-piece Imperial Star Destroyer which came with a hefty £650 price tag, as well as the 7,541-piece Millennium Falcon which cost exactly the same. God knows how many pieces will be crammed into the unconfirmed set, but you can bet your butt it'll cost around £650. Here are your three options in more detail with descriptions from Lego.

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.

Let us know which one you're contemplating casting your vote for. Giz UK editor Tom has his eye on Republic Gunship, while production editor Kim went for the TIE Bomber "because it's the least ugly of the three." I, of course, couldn't care less about anything Lego-related and they all look like a pain in the arse to put together. So I vote for none of them, accompanied by a Jar Jar minifig because I might as well piss off Star Wars fans as well as Lego lovers while I'm at it.
