  • Comments: The X-Wing Fighter has become the symbol of the Rebellion. Swift, reliable and highly responsive in battle, this rugged craft is capable of absorbing plenty of damage in combat. X-Wings have flown in all the major battles against the Empire and are the preferred fighters of Rebel pilots. In the bustling Alliance hangars, X-Wings are prepared for another battle with Imperial fighters, as pilots and technicians check engines, instruments and weapons. Once Alliance pilot, Wedge Antilles, flew an X-Wing in the Battle of yavin as Red Two and as Red Leader in the Battle of Endor.

















    Points of Interest:
  • X-Wing Starfighter is a repaint of 2002's SAGA Luke Skywalker's X-Wing Fighter
  • Wedge Antilles is a kit-bash figure using the arms, legs, and crotch of Nrin Vakil, the gloves and helmet of 2006's VTSC Wes Janson, a new torso and head. The helmet is the same as similar X-Wing Pilots, but the plastic has been stretched to fit Wedge's head.
  • The unnamed Astromech Droid is a repaint of 2005's ROTS R4-G9. In the Rogue Squadron novels, Wedge flew with an astromech droid named "Mynock" who later was reprogrammed with a new name, "Gate". Both of these droids are R5 units, so they are not the droid included in this set. The identity of this droid will have to remain a mystery for now...
  • UPDATE! This droid has been identified as R2-A3.
  • The display stand shown in the photos is not included with the vehicle. It's a FlexiDisplay stand, and you can find out more about it here.

    The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
    Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
    Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
    Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
    meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
    Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
    Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
