Images of a new LEGO Star Wars 10240 Red Five X-wing Starfighter set have been leaked by a Taiwanese LEGO User Group and then later posted by Hoth Bricks and Eurobricks (with LEGO saying to take the pics down). Jan Beyer has also officially posted some photos from LEGOworld in Copenhagen of the set on the LEGO Community Team Blog. After all the dust settled, many other sites have posted the images and LEGO has also released a designer video, alternate images and a press release, so I now bring all the information on this Ultimate Collectors Series set to you below:
