It's been over a decade since the last movie-accurate X-wing was released by lego and this one is true to A New Hope, which is exactly what I want to go with my Y-wing and Tie Fighter, completing my classic trilogy collection perfectly. A solid, engaging build that uses some really clever tricks to fill space, this actually feels like an 80$ build. Size is near perfect, because I felt it looked too small in the pictures. It's not Ultimate Collector's, but it's still a solid model. You can remove the stud launchers from the sides with an easy tweak using the spare parts.
My son bought this with his own money. He is 6. He got right to it and had it built within hours. He says "it is so awesome"!
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.
I'm quite happy with this set overall: good build, decent figures, and playability is not bad – it's always super fun to fly an X-wing around. However, the price is unfortunately very high, and while this is a quality set, I feel that the price of LEGO X-wings is getting out of hand and this is no exception. It's really a shame as this is otherwise a very high quality set. Wait for a decent discount, then buy.
75218 X-wing Starfighter is definitely the best minifigure-scale rendition of an X-wing that LEGO has produced. Its fuselage looks great when compared with the source material and I love the bright light yellow highlights which provide a brilliant splash of colour to the vehicle. Furthermore, the minifigures are excellent, although another pilot and their respective Astromech droid would have been welcome.
Despite some minor, easily fixable flaws with the laser cannons and rather strong similarity to the 2012 version, 75218 X-wing Starfighter is an excellent LEGO X-wing. I had missed the 2012 X-wing, and just last year at BrickCon I filled that hole in my LEGO collection at after-market prices. The X-wing itself is beautifully designed, with excellent S-foil functionality, even if we think the starfighter could have been amazing by incorporating features from Mike Psiaki's version built when he was a regular LEGO fan. New Rebel pilot helmets, hard-to-find flight suits, and an updated version of fan-favorite Biggs Darklighter also make the set a key purchase for minifig collectors.
