Last night, after a couple of overwhelming days, I decided to watch one of the Star Wars movies. I decided “A New Hope” was a good way to get some retro to calm things down a bit. I have always enjoyed the X-Wing’s design and futuristic look. It has become synonymous with Star Wars in the most legendary of ways. There are people who want to add to its legendary status by creating a LEGO X-Wing so impressive that you just have to check it out.
The day has finally come when LEGO has collected their senses and put together a product that few Star Wars fans will be able to resist. They recently introduced the incredibly impressive LEGO X-Wing build which boasts a whopping 1,558 LEGO blocks. Now, if you’re looking for a challenge which will keep you busy while you are frantically re-watching all of those Star Wars movies (and of course while waiting for the new ones), this LEGO X-Wing build is totally for you.
Don’t think it will be easy to assemble though. As small as it may seem, it can even fit a little R2-D2 mini figurine in its proper place. If this doesn’t make any LEGO fan drool, I don’t know what will. I must admit that when I first saw it, before I had actually read who the originating creator was, I thought it was a custom build that some clever fan had put together. But how wrong I was! This is an actual LEGO X-Wing product that you will be able to get your hands on. The question I think we are all asking ourselves is, how much will it cost?
Well, for a fanatic Star Wars fan and LEGO enthusiast, the price of $199.99 might be okay. For someone who finds “tinkering” with LEGO blocks, and especially this LEGO X-Wing, nothing more than a pastime, this might not be included in your monthly budget. This LEGO X-Wing will be available for purchase this coming May.
