A New LEGO X-Wing Starfighter Takes Off This Star Wars Day

LEGO Group has announced the new Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series X-wing Starfighter building set. Based on the iconic T-65 X-wing Starfighter from the Star Wars saga, the new 1,949-piece LEGO Star Wars set is highly detailed and includes the Incom 4L4 fusil thrust engines and the Taim & Bak KX9 laser cannons.

The X-wing Starfighter was designed by the Incom Corporation for use by the Rebel Alliance in long missions and dog fights. First seen in Star Wars: A New Hope, the X-wings were manned by elite pilots in the Rebel Alliance – including Luke Skywalker. In the same film, the Rebel Alliance deployed the X-wings in the Battle of Yavin, where Luke joins the Red and Gold Squadrons as call-sign Red Five, alongside Biggs and Porkins, in an attempt to destroy the Empire’s Death Star.

In one of cinema’s most iconic scenes, the battle ends with a tense moment between Luke and Darth Vader in the Death Star trench – where Luke has one chance to fire his seemingly impossible shot into the exhaust port that is “not much bigger than 2 metres”, and destroy the Empire’s ultimate weapon.

At over 55cm / 21.5-inch long, the new LEGO Star Wars X-wing Starfighter set is the perfect addition to the Ultimate Collector Series, joining the AT-AT, Millennium Falcon, Razorcrest and Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder building sets. Once complete, fans can display the X-wing model with either the wings open or closed. Plus, it comes complete with Luke Skywalker and R2-D2 astromech droid minifigures, and a display plaque with technical details about the X-wing.

Henrik Andersen, LEGO Design Master, said:

“Whilst this is not the first time we have brought the X-wing Starfighter to brick life, this is the most detailed and I am so excited with the final design. It is such an iconic ship, by designing at this new larger scale we were able to include more specific details such as the thrusters, the cockpit and the wings. We are so excited to now share this with fans.”

The new LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series X-wing Starfighter set will be available from 1 May 2023 for LEGO VIP members exclusively on LEGO.com/star-wars and in LEGO Stores priced at US$239.99 and for everyone from 4 May 2023.

But fans won’t have to wait that long to get up close to the new set – as it will be on display exclusively at the forthcoming Star Wars Celebration event in London from 7 to 10 April 2023, at the LEGO booth. In addition, Celebration attendees will be able to get their hands on the new LEGO Star Wars Brickheadz Battle of Endor building set (40623) which features Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Lando Calrissian, an Ewok and Princess Leia-inspired LEGO Star Wars Minifigures, before it is available anywhere else. Plus, stay tuned for more exciting LEGO Star Wars announcements at the event.

This is actually the third time we’ve seen the T-65 X-Wing Starfighter in brick form, and it’s the most detailed yet. Check it out below:
