Recommendation: meh 4.57 / 5 from 93 reviews

After recently returning to Lego as an adult, I wanted to test the more difficult sets, and this one fit the bill. While not impossibly difficult, it was challenging enough to keep it interesting through the entire build. The techniques used by the designers to achieve the various design elements was also innovative and looks amazing. My only complaint Is that Lego.com does not keep more of their ultimate collector series sets in stock.

Recommendation: meh by Graham

75275 A-wing Starfighter feels like a labour of love, with real attention to detail paid to the source material leading to a finished model at a satisfying scale. It makes for a worthy of addition to the Ultimate Collector Series and will add a striking splash of colour to a shelf full of such sets. Quibbles with this release are very, very minor – this is the first time the A-wing has been captured as a UCS model, and fans will not be complaining if it is also the last.

Recommendation: meh by Andrew

It's hard not to love the finished model as a display piece, and the incredibly complex build was very enjoyable indeed. It's also important to remember that this is the very first UCS-scale A-wing, filling a major gap in the UCS line of LEGO Star Wars sets. As I consider the set in its totality, all of the points I made above criticizing it feel like nit-picks, as valid and (hopefully) objective as I intend them to be. In other words, the UCS A-wing is much more than the sum of its imperfect parts.

Recommendation: meh by CapnRex101

Accurately capturing the aerodynamic aesthetic of the RZ-1 A-wing Interceptor is undoubtedly the most important aspect of 75275 A-wing Starfighter and the designer has succeeded. I love the shaping of the fuselage and the exterior appears appropriately smooth, despite comprising multiple sections which are attached at varying angles. The sides seem particularly impressive, curving in multiple directions. However, compromises are apparent. The nose has been truncated when compared with the movie and gaps do become visible when viewing this model from certain angles. Furthermore, the exposed Technic elements inside the cockpit are disappointing and the A-wing Pilot seems unexceptional, although minifigures are not usually the focus of Ultimate Collector Series sets.

Recommendation: yes by Andrew

The UCS A-wing is nothing short of a gorgeous ship. Even the choices of which surfaces to be tiled and which to be studded seem intentional in a way that reminds the viewer that this is a LEGO model without detracting from the streamlined look of it all. All in all, the set does an excellent job of capturing its sleek shaping, resulting in another model that's being displayed in the living room (whether my roommates like it or not [they do]).
