LEGO seems to have gotten a lot better at keeping their secrets until they are ready to release them to the public. I know this becasue I have seen no hints of the latest UCS set until today when I opened my email to find the notice from LEGO of the newest USC set: #10227 B-Wing Starfighter. Included in the email was a Joke:
This evening the newest LEGO® exclusive, 10227 B-wing Starfighter™, will be unveiled at Brick Fiesta in Houston, TX. The B-Wing is part of the Ultimate Collector series and since the ship was in part designed by Admiral Ackbar himself, we can assure you it’s NOT a trap!
