About this deal

The 2023 LEGO UCS X-Wing Starfighter goes on sale on 1 May 2023 for LEGO VIPs, ahead of a general release on 4 May 2023. One was a sequel trilogy X-wing, 30386 Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter, and one was an OT version, 6963 X-wing Fighter.

Almost immediately from that point on The X-wing was immensely popular among fans and the fighter is now one of the most recognizable spaceships of all time. Internally, only two small rubber bands tension the wings against each other, which means they noticeably droop due to their weight. They do move around even if you’re just picking up the X-wing to move it from one point to another, and while the wings won’t fall off it just feels quite unstable. Playability: 10/10 It's a great little ship to swoosh, you can adjust the wings, and it looks great. You can open it up to see the inside, which has the pilot’s chair, joystick, and the targeting computer.As part of the event, a make and take build opportunity was available where fans could put together a little X-wing model . The printed display plaque feels rightfully premium, the two included minifigures are the definitive LEGO versions of Pilot Luke and R2-D2, ensuring that the model looks great when put in a display case or atop a shelf. Identical in size to the instructions in set 30050 we have a a single piece of paper for the instructions.

This reminds me of the quality of minis I've come to expect from Legostein, who is a master of mini building, I wonder if he sold a design to TLG? The designer Jerac has refined this model with a more accurate design, stronger than before, and avoids overly rare parts. On the open market, a used set will fetch in the range of between 5 € and 13 € depending on the condition. The back of the X-wing is one of my favorite angles of the starfighter, and it looks equally splendid here – as if it was ripped off the screen. I've been looking for these sets, and I had thought about doing a review when I got them, but you've taken care of it for me already.The side panels are angled in two directions and taper towards the nose, using some clever build techniques to get the shaping right. Hopefully the designers can find a remedy for it, but all these issues don’t feel great in a premium model like this. com Heads up, today is the final day that you’ll be able to score 2x LEGO Insider Points on all purchases on LEGO. X-wing Starfighter joins a prestigious lineup of LEGO Star Wars sets, and has a lot to live up to – let’s see if this set can stand out!

Unfortunately, the tricky shaping does mean that the panels still have a little bit of wiggle room on the final model, but they do look good. Heads up for those in the US, UK and EU - today is your final day to score 2x Insider Points on all purchases! Apart from the clunky nose design, I’d say the designers have knocked the aesthetics department out of the park. This one, just like the others, does a few things right, and a few things wrong, but overall it’s still a winner.We’ve supported 100’s of businesses with a variety of bespoke LEGO B2B services providing each client with a dedicated single point of contact throughout the process.

Sure, some of the droopiness is understandable given how big this thing is, but it wouldn’t look so bad if the wings were actually closed together properly!

I picked up the last three at my areas Target, and after opening up one of them and putting it together, I realized I can finally live my life's dream of putting it together in the bag.The theme currently covers all main films, the anthology films, animated movie and TV series as well as the extended universe. This is going to be an odd review because I’m just going to point all the things I didn’t like or could have been better but still give this a thumbs up.
