- January 13th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Trench Run!Cachamoe |This isn't a bad set, especially considering the target audience, but sadly I still can't pull myself to recommend it. (the only reason why it gets a "good" overall rating is because of the fact that this is aimed at young kids) This is a rare instance where I think the secondary build is better in it's execution than the main one. The ground build had nice coloring, detail, and playability, with the turret head being able to spin around and even fire projectiles via the disk shooter. You can also angle the guns on the turret up and down. The ability to take off canisters from it as well helps with playability. The X-Wing however, is where the set suffers. The only main problem in my opinion is the cockpit piece, which looks quite horrible and is very jarring. If they could have designed the Starfighter to be able to use the proper piece, it would have made such a big difference. The fact that this X-Wing can't house R2 even though he is included is also a minor issue. The printed pieces are great though, and the wings look good for the scale. The minifigures are great in this set. Luke looks very proper and has the older helmet design and his lightsaber. You also get R2, and a regular stormtrooper for ground battles. In conclusion, this is a mixed bag of a set. It isn't bad, or by any means a waste of money, but some poor execution in the X-Wing design keeps this set from reaching it's potential. For kids, this should be fine though, as they probably won't take as much of an issue with the problems.Play Experience4.0Level of Difficulty1.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 30 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45X-Wing Starfighter™ Trench Run
- January 24th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great Starting PointI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SonMy son is 3 1/2 - a little under the target range, but with a little help he has built and rebuilt this set with hours of play time. He plays with it every day. I love intricate and complex builds myself, but the hours of fun he has had from this are something else. I understand people would find room for improvement if comparing to the x wing sets aimed at older builders, but to take the perspective of the target group it is brilliant. Great value for money, mini figures were great, side build was great. Only downside is we have had to pack the Duplo away! So glad to see Lego Star Wars branching towards younger builders!Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 55 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55X-Wing Starfighter™ Trench Run
- December 31st, 2020Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Nice setI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI purchased this set for the X-Wing and after building it I wasn't happy with the Cockpit windshield. I know the set is for young Lego Star Wars fans and I'm sure that they would enjoy this set which is very basic. I liked that the pieces were printed instead of using stickers. I did extend the fighter with spare parts so R2 could fit but it's better to play with instead of having it as a display. I liked the mini figures and the turret that fires the projectiles which adds to the playability. Not a bad set and it’s very easy to build, it’s just that the X-wing would have been better if it had a proper windshield.Play Experience4.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45X-Wing Starfighter™ Trench Run
- January 4th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great Set - not just for kidsI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: DaughterMy daughter (4) has had great fun with this set. She loved the shooting turret. The X-wing's canopy is the only small issue with this set, but it is not too bad. While she was perfectly happy, I could not resist a raid on the spare box to add another couple of rows to allow R2-D2 to fit!Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 30 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55X-Wing Starfighter™ Trench Run
