- August 3rd, 2018Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0The Rebellion Is RebornXeonsStargazer | 19-24I would recommend this to a friend!This new X-Wing starfighter, the first that I have built, is an amazing build! The mechanism for changing the wing position is almost flawless, and a new Biggs minifigure (last one since 1999), is a great addition! The swappable Red-5/Red-3 stickers are good for variety. The fighter, though the size may be a bit off, works well with the Solo Imperial TIE Fighter. The new helmets, dual molded with a trans-orange visor, is a good attempt, but I still prefer the visor printed on the minfigure's face. Granted, this is the first version of a dual-molded rebel pilot helmet (not Resistance), so I'm sure the design will be improved upon in a future set. My one complaint is how the engine booters on the back tend to fall off easily if handled improperly. But, as a display piece, I think it looks FAR superior to the last Death Star trench run X-wing, and is definitely worth the money. (My apologize for the upside down images. Goodness knows what happened there.)Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 2 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55X-Wing Starfighter™
- September 19th, 2018Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Excellent set but..! Pics include extra parts reqdJaimzee | 45-54I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is such a truly great rendition of the X-Wing but in my opinion it has two crucial flaws, the cannons on the wings and the engines on the back are too short. With a little look through Pick-a-Brick, with just a few additional parts (shown), you can transform the wing cannons and engines to how I've modified it! It is a great set either way for sure, enjoy!Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Level of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 stars3.0Value for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 stars4.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45X-Wing Starfighter™
- September 30th, 2018Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0X-Wingggwho | 55-64I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfNice X-wing, the wing lever function and location is a nifty setup. The larger engines are cool. Always have to add some of the extras and personalize a bit, the engines actually seemed a tad short so added some length to the engines with white cylinders in the front to get them past the wings and moved the rear assembly back with dark gray bricks and some silver ingots to keep the balanced look.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Value for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 stars5.0Building Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55X-Wing Starfighter™
