UCS Fan Vote (BP poll added)  

105 members have voted

  1. 1. Which UCS Would / Did YOU Choose ?

    • Nebulon B Escort Frigate
    • TIE Bomber
    • Republic Gunship

LEGO’s links have been going to 404 pages lately for some reason.

For me, I like the TIE Bomber. The Neb B has been done by a knock off and it’s very fragile. Unless LEGO has really solidified how that thing is connected...

They must have good designs on all three, and can’t make a decision, lol.

How do you justify another Tie anything?

I agree the Nebulon is unique...but I think it would not be a great LEGO set.

As I told LEGO - I vote for UCS A-Wing.  But since that is (sadly) NOT available, I voted for the Tie Bomber. 

I already built Mortesv's Nebulon-B Medical Frigate (all 4-ft and 5500+ pieces of it)!  At that scale + Disney tax, it would inevitably be around $600-$700 range.  I admit the building is very tricky in places and I ended up having to disassemble and reassemble the part that hangs down from the main body a couple of times because the instructions weren't completely clear to me.  But I have a hard time believing LEGO would improve on his design: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-5083/cjd_223/mortesvs-ucs-nebulon-b-medical-frigate/#comments

Although the Gunship would be cool, we already have several versions of it with minifigures.  It would almost be another remake. 

On the other hand, we have a grand total of one (1) Tie Bomber... ever (# 4479).

I know Ties in general are not very popular, but what I would propose is a Tie Bomber display piece like military bombers do with their ordinance on display in front of it (see pic).  The Tie Bomber has A LOT of ordinance available to it from ship-to-ship to ground assault.  You can even remove the weapons bay and insert a transport module for up to six people.

So I propose one minifigure (Tie Bomber Pilot) but a TON of ordinance to display and possibly the crew transport module as an insert.  (Could add some Imperial Officers as minifigures for the crew compartment).  They could even open the weapons pod and show how it is loaded with ordinance.  With the ordinance and transport insert the Tie Bomber could end up being one of the best UCS display pieces ever and it should still be in the $200 - $250 range.

I'm very intrigued with the Nebulon Frigate, but I voted for the Gunship because I want to see TLG start tackling some prequel UCS sets.  There are several vehicles from the PT that I would really like to see in UCS format - Sith Infiltrator, MTT, all the clone vehicles (RAG, CTT, AT-TE, AT-OT, Dropship) and a ROTS jedi starfighter just off the top of my head.  A minifigure-scale MTT with 100+ battle droids would be killer!

I've voted for the Republic Gunship as well, with a special Mace Windu minifigure to go along with it. :) 

While I do like the Nebulon B Frigate in the movies as a very unique design I don't think LEGO could make a UCS design that comes even close to the above mentioned MOC. And anything less would be disappointing. 

I don't find a TIE Bomber a very attractive / appealing design. I'd rather see LEGO make a true UCS Republic Gunship that puts the previous play sets to shame!
