    Biggs Darklighter!

    This set was great to build. I remember buying the old 2012 x-wing with Luke as the main character. I'm so glad that Lego decided to put Biggs in the pilots seat! It was included with great details and a small compartment for R2-D2 like always. Have fun building!

    The Force Is Strong With This One

    Soooooooooooo many X-Wing models to choose from. Naturally that gives the latest model a lot to be compared with. This version has a lot going for it. PROS: First off, I like the two version builds we get in this set. It really is nice to get an updated Biggs as well since he is long overdue. The new Droid is also welcome and I was surprised that it was in fact a new print not a reissue from the Imperial V-Wing. There is a new wing mechanic in this model as well that has changed how the S-Foils expand. It uses a switch rather than a knob on the back. As such it blends more pleasingly into the look of the model and works quite well. The model also has some rare color elements in it and of course the newer canopy design which I really love. While The price per part ratio is not great this is a nice example of LEGO upping the game. This version has 25-30 more parts than the previous 2 iterations of the X-Wing and the price point is unchanged. CONS: Stickers...not just stickers, stickers on round parts. I have just built the sets and already they are peeling. I normally deduct on my reviews for stickers but these are particularly bad. The adhesive on these (I bought two of this set and it isn't a fluke for one set its present on both) stickers is bad...even the stickers on the flat parts are having issues adhering. additionally I prefer the older method of using tiles to denote the Red Number on the wings...the tiles allowed for even more variation. This version using stickers locks you into either Red 5 or Red 3. Lastly I am not a huge fan of the wing design...they are bulky and thicker than previous versions. They look good but they are just heavy enough that the rubber bands have a hard time keeping them closed in use. Finally, the spacing is just tight enough that with only minimal use the rubber bands have already snapped after mere days. The older X-Wing models have all gone years and still have the initial rubber bands that work fine after years of use. SO-SO: Not sure even now if I like the new Rebel Pilot Helmets...they now have an attached visor which is accurate...but the shape and proportions are very awkward looking. The old method of having the pilot heads painted with the visors allowed some variation in having the visor up or down as well. It isn't a deal breaker but I don't know how much I like it. Price wise this set is also in the middle ground. It is better than the last 2 versions but isn't exactly a bargain. That said it also doesn't feel like a rip off either. Overall I like the set. The rubber band issues have been a problem but LEGO is always great about their service and provided replacements in a very timely manner. If I had my choice I would like the canopy and wing mechanic of this model with the wing and rubber band design of the older republic X-Wing. If only there was a way to get the best of both worlds...like if I could take parts from one and combine them...ah well wishful thinking. :P

    X-Wing

    Nice X-wing, the wing lever function and location is a nifty setup. The larger engines are cool. Always have to add some of the extras and personalize a bit, the engines actually seemed a tad short so added some length to the engines with white cylinders in the front to get them past the wings and moved the rear assembly back with dark gray bricks and some silver ingots to keep the balanced look.

    Nice set, and my first OT LEGO X-Wing!

    This set, 75218, is my first classic LEGO X-Wing, as I didn't get the X-Wings before this except for Poe's X-Wing, which was different from this. First, let's get started on the mini figures: Luke Skywalker: I'm actually a fan of the new helmet design, I really like it. With that being said, the mini figure was awesome, with the classic torso piece and Luke's face with the new helmet, I especially like the detailed markings on top. Biggs Dark lighter: Again, the helmet mold has different markings on it compared to Luke's helmet. He has a nice mustache and is a very good figure. R2-D2: Not much to say, same as the other R2s being released as of now, with the classic astro mech build with R2's markings. R2-Q2: Same as R2, but with grey markings. And now, the build: First bag starts with some of the inside of the main body. Second bag completes the nose of the X-Wing. Third bag finishes the main body of the X-Wing. Fourth bag creates the two wings on the right. Fifth bag does the same to the left. Sixth bag finishes up the details and adds engines to the back. Overall a very fun build, I'd say, and the wings are repetitive but it wouldn't work without it being that way, the build for bag number 6 was the best, in my opinion, my favorite part was creating the front of the engines. The start of the X-Wing was also fun, creating the nose. Play features: Set contains 2 small spring loaded stud shooters on the sides of the cockpit area, and four spring loaded shooters near the blaster cannons on the tip of the wings. Using a sort of lever, you can pull the lever forwards to open the S-foils. Using a pin on the bottom, you can close it without pulling the lever back again, although you could pull it back with the lever as well. R2 can fit in horizontally, unlike the 2012 set. You can retract the landing gear and extend it as well. You can open the cockpit and put Luke or Biggs inside. You can swap out markings for Red Five (Luke) and for Red Three (Biggs). Set is very very easy to swoosh around and easily gripped and very sturdy to fly around the room. And that's all I can think of for the moment. Now on to... Aesthetics: For sure, the best looking X-Wing set yet, besides perhaps the UCS X-Wing. The best part of the aesthetics is the front of the engines, it uses something new rather than the pieces used in the 2012 set and before. The nose looks really cool, back of the engines look cool, the only bad looking thing is that the laser cannons are a bit short compared to the detailed 2012 X-Wing cannons. Spring loaded shooters can look off, so if you don't play with your set and instead display them, it is easy to take out the spring loaded shooter brick and fiddle around with the pieces already available, no need for spares. Also another bad looking thing is the pin on the bottom, though that isn't essential and can be easily removed. Also, the top with the lever looks weird sometimes, and I don't mind it, but some people might. Pros: Very swooshable, minifigures are very good. Build is very engaging. Arguably the best looking normal sized X-Wing yet. Front of engines are a huge improvement. Lever piece is very fun to use. Cons: Cannons can be short. Lever might be considered not good looking. Pin on the bottom looks off. The back of the X-Wing doesn't have fixed pieces, so the hexagon pieces might be slightly loose. Spring loaded shooters don't look too great. Back of engines fall off easily. Overall, I think even though the cons are more than the pros, the pros way way outweigh the cons in being more important. Besides, about ALL of the cons above can easily be fixed, especially the first few. Overall, one of my favorite sets, certainly my favorite display set that I have. I fully recommend this set to anyone who is going for the medium price of 50-100 dollars. Those who don't have an X-Wing, this is a very good set and if you want an X-Wing and don't have one, I really recommend this set. If you have enough money, the Solo TIE Fighter is a good set to pair this up with. So overall, amazing set, super cool, probably my favorite set to fly around in and to display. Probably one of the best Summer 2018 sets, along with the AT Hauler according to some reviews.
