EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The classic X-Wing Starfighter set #75218 is back. Designed for ages 8-14, it comes with 730 pieces and features 4 mini figures. There's Luke Skywalker, R2D2, Biggs Darklighter, and R2Q2. This Star Wars fan favorite has retractable landing gear, an opening cockpit and space for R2-D2. The X-Wing is equipped with stud shooters on the side and 4 wing-mounted spring-loaded projectile launchers. Flip the lever to transition the wings between cruise and attack positioning. The added bonus with this set is that it comes with tiles to transform from Luke Skywalker's Red Five into Biggs Darklighter's Red Three X-Wing! Luke comes with lightsaber and blaster, Biggs has a blaster. This is a great replica of the tried and true X-Wing seen in A New Hope. Star Wars fans of all ages will love this set. It took our expert builder about 1 hour to complete and when it's done it measures 13" long. 

Is It Fun?
LEGO Star Wars always hits the nail on the head. This X-Wing is great and builders will enjoy every minute of building time when constructing this classic ship. The 4 mini figures are cool, and the firing features of studs and projectiles are an added bonus. Fans will love all the features of this X-WING , especially the opening and closing wing feature.
Who It’s For
Star Wars fans and LEGO fans will love this incredible replica of the X-WING Fighter seen in Star Wars A New Hope. The X-WING can transform with the change of a few tiles from Luke's X-Wing to Bigg's X-Wing. Designed for ages 8 -14, this set is awesome and even older fans of the films will love it for it's nostalgic factor.
What To Be Aware Of
This X-Wing can be transformed from Luke's X-Wing to Biggs' X-Wing with the change of LEGO tiles on the wing. 

Look for other classic STAR WARS ships, like the Imperial Landing Craft # 75221 from LEGO.
