If you are looking for the ultimate Star Wars LEGO sets, these LEGO UCS sets should be near the top of your list. These are large sets, usually with a lot of pieces, and Minifigures. They typically have advanced build techniques. As a result, they are marketed toward the adults more than the kids. Now on to the Complete LEGO Star Wars UCS List.
Currently, I know of 35 sets that qualify.
Here are some quick UCS Star Wars Stats:
- Biggest set number of pieces The 2017 Millennium Falcon (75192) 7541 PCS
- Biggest set assembled The 2017 Millennium Falcon (75192) 7541 PCS (4th biggest LEGO set ever)
- UCS set with most Minifigures: UCS Death Star 10188 has 23
- Most expensive Star Wars UCS set – This is shared. For new sets when released the Millennium Falcon (75192) and the At-AT (75153) both came in at $799. But the one with the highest resale value is the cloud city (not a UCS set)
- Most affordable set. The early UCS sets from 2000 can still be gotten in new condition for half of what a new UCS set costs.
How do you know what a UCS Set is?
While the LEGO group does say that some sets are UCS class, there are others that were released before that title was invented. I’ve gone back over 20 years and looked at all the sets that qualify, or would have qualified had the UCS designation existed.
Some of the criteria I used are: Is it labeled as a UCS set by LEGO? Does it have a UCS sticker? Does it have UCS box artwork? Do other significant LEGO websites identify the set as a UCS?
Some sets have all these factors, others only a few. After careful review here are the 35 LEGO Star Wars sets.
These are some of the more expensive and desired Star Wars LEGO sets. Do you have any in your LEGO collection? Do you want any? Let me know in the comments below!
Are these LEGO sets good Investments?
There are few toys that appreciate as much as LEGO bricks and Minifigures. Over time the value goes up. The Star Wars ultimate collector series are more expensive to buy at first but they also go up more than other sets.
In my opinion, there are a few things you can do to maximize the investment potential. In order of most to least:
- Never open the box and keep it sealed and pristine.
- Open the box and assemble the set but don’t put on any stickers (if present). Carefully disassemble and save everything in the original box and bags.
- Open the set and assemble it – discarding all the packaging.
- Open and assemble the set, enjoy, play, and display it.
There are basically two ways sets are resold – and that is as a sealed set, or as a complete set with all the parts and minifigs verified. Either way, UCS sets command a higher value than other sets. This may be because they have a higher piece count, or are more desirable. I’m not completely sure.

Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder 75341
This set has 2 minifigs, a younger Luke Skywalker and C-3PO. it is the first UCS Landspeeder, so the scale is a bit bigger than previous Landspeeder sets. There is also a display stand and printed plate with info about the set. It has lots of detail and looks the most realistic of the original trilogy movies. A cool feature is that the canopy which is one of the larger pieces and clear is wrapped with a peel-off membrane to protect the piece from scratches during transport in the box. Link to Purchase.
Republic Gunship 75309
From the Clone Wars Series – this republic gunship has some of the largest pieces LEGO has ever created. It comes with 2 minifigs. One is Mace Windu (I have a feeling this will become a rare minifig), and a clone trooper. It comes with a display stand and plate with info as is the new usual standard for UCS sets. Link to Purchase.
At over 25 inches tall (more than 2 feet, this four-legged walker comes with 9 minifigs and is a massive set. The sides open up and there is room for more than 40 figs. The head and legs are poseable. the Minifigures included in this set are General Veers, Luke Skywalker, Snowtrooper Commander, 4 Snowtroopers, and 2 AT-AT Drivers. A display plaque is also included. Link to Purchase.
A-Wing Starfighter 75275
This was the only UCS set released in 2020. Not a huge set, and it only came with one Minifigure who was a Rebel Pilot. It also came with a display stand and an information plaque. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Imperial Star Destroyer 75252
This impressive model of an imperial star destroyer is nicknamed the Devastator -not because of the damage it will do to the rebel fleet, but because of how it will affect your bank account. When new it was $699, and as soon as it retires, it will jump significantly. Only 2 Minifigures are included, an imperial officer and a crewmember. It’s physically large too – one of the biggest ever at 17” high, 43” long, and 26” wide. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Y-wing Starfighter 75181
This retired UCS y-wing starfighter comes with 2 mini-figures: a Gold Leader and an R2-BHD droid. While it comes with a display stand and card, there are lots of playable features on this set including a cockpit that opens, landing gear that retracts, and spinning cannons. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Snowspeeder 75144
With lots of authentic details and 2 Minifigures (Rebel Snowspeeder Pilot and Rebel Snowspeeder Gunner Minifigures), this UCS snow speeder set is a great entry point into the series. Although retired, the prices for this set are still reasonable. Comes with a stand and plaque as well. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon 75192
Here is another massive UCS set, that every LEGO star wars fan should have in their collection. Over 7500 pieces. 8 mini-figures. This is the ONE that people talk about when they do. I’ve seen this in person (I don’t have it – yet) and it is spectacular. The retail is just amazing on this iconic Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Assault on Hoth 75098
I don’t know if I would call this a UCS, however, it fits several of the categories mentioned above, so I’m adding to this list. What I really like about this set from the Empire Strikes Back movie is the minifigs – there are 14! IncludingLuke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Rebel Officer, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, K-3PO, 5 Rebel troopers & 2 Snowtroopers, plus an R3-A2, Tauntaun, and a Wampa. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Death Star 75159
Where the other set released in 2016 is not worthy (IMHO) of UCS – the 75159 Death Star IS! To me, this is the pinnacle of the LEGO Star Wars Universe Sets. It’s huge and comes with 23 minifigs Including Luke Skywalker Han Solo, Princess Leia, Ben Kenobi, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, R2-D2, C-3PO, Emperor Palpatine, Grand Moff Tarkin, an Imperial Officer, Moff Tian Jerjerrod, R3-M3, 2 Stormtroopers, 2 Royal Guards, a Death Star Droid, 2 Death Star Troopers, and 2 Death Star Gunners. It’s one of the more expensive LEGO sets, but totally worth it. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Slave I 75060
This Set had a little bit of controversy around it. As you know the name of the Ship is Slave I, and of course, it was released in 2015 during the BLM movement. As the United States was becoming more woke, it was deemed that the name was no longer acceptable, and the name of Boba Fett’s ship was changed to Firespray. Anyway, it’s still a very cool set with 4 minifigs including Boba Fett, Bespin Guard, Stormtrooper & Han Solo. Plus a way to stand it up and a badge. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS TIE Fighter 75095
This is THE classic UCS TIE fighter. Did you know that TIE stands for “Twin Ion Engine”? But George Lucas the creator thought they looked like bow ties and that’s really how they got their name. To me, this feels like it was built in Minifigure scale. It comes with a lone Fighter Pilot, and he looks pretty small next to the model. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Sandcrawler 75059
If you are looking for another Huge set, the UCS Sandcrawler is for you. Coming in with 3296 pieces and measuring 9” high, 18” long and 6 wide, this is a great addition to your Star Wars LEGO collection. There are 7 Minifigures in this set including R2-D2, an R1-series Droid, an R2 unit, R5-D4, a Treadwell Droid, Gonk Droid & even C-3PO. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Ewok Village 10236
Star Wars isn’t really known for lush green forest scenes, but on the moon of Endor, the Ewoks have made a great life. And that’s why this ucs ewok village
set is so cool. LEGO has recreated the famous scene beautifully. You have brick-built trees with real bridges between the treehouses. It’reals a fun set to build and play with. Plus there are a TON of Minifigures: 16 altogether: Luke Skywalker™, Princess Leia™, Han Solo™, Chewbacca™, C-3PO, 2 Rebel soldiers, 5 Ewoks ( Wicket, Teebo, Chief Chirpa & Logray. It also comes with speeder bikes and even lego net traps. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Red Five x-Wing Starfighter 10240
This is the best X-wing fighter LEGO has made. Of course, it comes with a display stand and a plate with a description. The cockpit opens, and the wings snap open and closed into attack position. Comes with an R2-D2 Droid as the only minifig. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS R2-D2 10225
This set isn’t really a playable set, but instead a realistic model of R2-D2. It’s over a foot tall and comes with an R2-D2 minifig.
There are some cool features to this set because panels open to reveal arms and controllers that are features in the real movie droid.
LEGO UCS B-wing Starfighter 10227
This is one of the few UCS sets that comes with zero minifigs. But that’s OK because this b-wing starfighter has some cool features like a self-leveling cockpit and moveable wings. Comes with a display stand and an info sheet. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Super Star Destroyer 10221
This is also called the Super Star Destroyer Executor and is one of the few UCS sets that comes with a Darth Vader (the Executor was Vader’s destroyer). It’s another massive set with over 3,000 pcs and 5 Minifigures: Admiral Firmus Piett, Bossk (alien), Darth Vader, Dengar, and IG-88. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Imperial Shuttle 10212
The UCS Imperial Shuttle comes with 5 mini-figures and 2503 pieces. You get Darth Vader, an Imperial Officer and Pilot, A stormtrooper, and Luke Skywalker in his black Jedi Robes. There is also. display stand and a plaque with info. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Obi-Wan’s Jedi Starfighter 10215
This retired set was a Lego exclusive. It’s one of the smaller sets with only 676 pieces and only comes with a droid. But there is a display stand and an info card, so for me, Obi-Wan’s Jedi starfighter qualifies as a UCS set. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Vader’s TIE Advanced 10175
Like all the USC 2009 sets this one also does not come with any miniatures. Another miss because this would have been great with a pilot Darth Vader Minifigure. Unlike a regular TIE fighter, this is a tie interceptor has angled edges supposedly making it faster and more maneuverable. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Imperial Star Destroyer 10030
With 3096 pieces and no minifigures this was one of the biggest LEGO Star Wars sets at the time. I never got this set as the reviews weren’t that great. Apparently, the instructions were hard to follow, and this was only a display set. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS General Grievous 10186
This isn’t another set that isn’t labeled as a UCS set but upon a closer look has all the features that one should. Also, this is like the R2-D2 model. Not of a ship or a scene, but a person. Comes with a nice brick-built display stand. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Death Star 10188
This was one of my very favorites builds LEGO ever did. The First UCS Death Star came with 24 Minifigures. A record for any lego set at the time. I just love the way the outer shell is peeled off so you can see the scenes inside, and of course, play with them. To me, this is the ultimate lego star wars UCS. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon 10179
With Darth Vader looking down menacingly on the box art, this Falcon came with 5 minifigs and 5197 pieces. It sells for over $5,000 for a sealed set making it one of the most expensive sets to get now. FYI it was only 499 in 2007 (but that was also the most expensive LEGO set ever at that time, too). Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Y-Wing Attack Starfighter 10134
These early ships, from the original trilogy series, are now worth a lot of money, even though they are some of the more simple builds. Having only 1743 pieces and one Minifigure an astromech droid, R5-D4, this set was originally $100 when new and now sells for $800 in a sealed box (if you can even find one). Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Rebel Snowspeeder 10129
Although not entirely to scale, this set is known for being one of the first LEGO sets with a very detailed cockpit. I don’t have this one, but everyone I’ve talked to about it says that it was a fun build and “worth it”. No minifigures are included and it is 1457 pieces. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Yoda 7194
Y’all know I love LEGO, and think that the designers do an amazing job. They are next level creators who work at the top of their game. But this model is lacking. I’m including it as a UCS set because it meets the criteria I set out, but this First version of Yoda is block, and barely resembles the character. Another missed opportunity because there are no minifigs with this 1075-piece set. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Special Edition Naboo Straighter 10026
It is hard to believe that this is a UCS Set. But it says so right on the box. 187 pieces. No Minfiigures. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Darth Maul 10018
Here’s another one of the earlier UCS sets that has me scratching my head. It’s not a fantastic build experience. There is no playability with this, and frankly its very blocky. 1868 pieces – no minifigs. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS Rebel Blockade Runner 10019
I think. I have like 5 copies of this set. It is one of the ones I frequently find pieces for when I buy bulk lots of lego off of craigslist or FB Groups. It has 1747 pieces, some of which are quite distinctive. No Minifigures. One of the first entries in the series. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS TIE Interceptor 7181
These very first sets in the LEGO ultimate collector’s series are just fancy and more expensive display versions of sets. Not designed to be played with, but instead just sit on a shelf and be admired (and collect dust). 703 pieces. New at $100 – today’s value is only $300. Link to Purchase.
LEGO UCS X-Wing Fighter 7191
This is the first entry. in the UCS LEGO Star Wars sets. 1300 pieces and the box looks nothing like the build. No minifigs. Link to Purchase.
Do you have to be a LEGO VIP to get a LEGO UCS Star Wars Set?
No. While LEGO VIPs do get some extra things, there are no UCS sets that are specifically for them. Some benefits of being VIP are early access to sets and extra free small gifts when purchases are made in the LEGO stores and on Line. It is free to sign up for LEGO VIP here’s the link.
Why are there different LEGO UCS Star Wars Sets Box Art types?
Who knows why LEGO changes the box style for new sets. I have no idea. I do know that the LEGO logo always appears on the box, and that the LEGO art changes with the trends of the day.
What sets will be the next UCS LEGO Star Wars Sets?
Of course, nobody knows exactly what sets will be the next ones released. I have a feeling that it might be an updated Rebel Blockade Runner, Mos Eisley Cantina, or even other characters like Vader, Solo, Leia, or Luke. LEGO does a very good job keeping secrets about what the next set will be. You can look for the hashtag #legoleaks and maybe find something, but good luck!
Final thoughts about the Complete Lego Star Wars UCS List
The Ultimate collector’s series sets are truly awe-inspiring. If you don’t have one and see one, you realize just how big and detailed they are. Lego fans have been collecting them for the entire time they are released, and some anticipate what the new set coming next year will be. For more info on that there are some great lego news websites to follow. I hope this article on the ultimate collectors series has been helpful.
