75144 Snowspeeder

LEGO 75144 Snowspeeder is highly detailed and has all the features you will be expected from the Ultimate Collector Series. This iconic vehicle appeared in the classic Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. This set includes opening airbrakes, rotating rear gun, and an openable cockpit for the included minifigures. The two minifigures included are Rebel Snowspeeder Pilot and Rebel Snowspeeder Gunner, both come with a blaster pistols. Also like other sets in the series, it comes with a display stand and a Snowspeeder fact plaque.

The Snowspeeder on display stand measures over 8” (21cm) high × 15” (39cm) long × 11” (29cm) wide. With the stand, this set will be over 4” (11cm) high.

75144 Snowspeeder Is Retiring Sooner Than Expected

LEGO Online Shop US has marked 75144 Snowspeeder as “Retiring Soon”. This may surprise a lot of fans that this set will be retired so soon. Usually, the lifespans of Ultimate Collector Series sets having lifespans of between 2.5 and 3 years. The most recent examples being 75095 TIE Fighter, 10240 Red Five X-Wing Starfighter (UCS) and 10236 Ewok Village. However, LEGO released 75144 Snowspeeder in May 2017 and it only available for a little over one year. Much shorter than other sets in the series. Interested collectors and investors may want to pick this one up before it’s too late.

  1. A shock to see this go so soon, but clearly a poor seller. Too much Lego SW at moment.
    Not ling now until full list of 2018 retirements – get the wallet ready

    • We are surprised too. This set will retire while the older sets: 75060 Slave I and 75159 Death Star are still available. With the Star Wars Episode IX coming out next year, there will be more SW sets coming.
