Features of the LEGO Star Wars Resistance X Wing Fighter 75149

You get all the containers, a tower, knobs for joining flame shooters as well as a wrench, fire extinguisher, and make believe flames.

In addition to the detachable BB-8 Astromech Droid, there are 3 mini action figures included:

  • Poe Dameron (the commander of the Resistance’s Starfighter corps)
  • Lor San Tekka (the legendary traveler and explorer)
  • A First Order Flame Trooper

Not only you have these cool figures but also you have their weapons like Poe’s pistol and the Flametrooper’s flamethrower.

The Resistance X Wing Fighter comes with opening wings, a cockpit, four spring loaded shooters, engines and so much more.

Who is this for?

The age range recommended for this set is 8-15, so if you have younger children you may need to help, though the average 10-year old kid should have no problem fixing it up on his own. With dimensions of 11cm height, 37cm length and 32cm in width with open wings, the X Wing Fighter will take about 4 hours to put together (less if you are skilled at LEGO construction).

Pros

  • Provides hours of fun, usually 4-6 hours to build and then hours of play time
  • The model looks like the Resistance X wing fighter in the movie. The details and the thought that went behind making this model makes it feel very real.
  • Teaches children patience as they fit the set together, there are some part that require precision placement.
  • Versatile. Allows you to fly through war zones, carry out rescue missions, shoot at the bad guys, or bring supplies to other civilizations
  • Compared to the Poe’s X wing fighter plane, the Resistance X wing is a far better upgrade with more toys and parts to play around with

 

Cons

  • The back part of the toy gets opened easily, just like the nose
  • It is relatively large.  You will need somewhere to store it safely.

Customer Reviews

Amazon customers give this LEGO set a 4.9 out of 5 star rating.

Even if they had the previous LEGO X Wing fighters, kids large and small really loved putting this together.  The ability to open and close the wings is great too.

Conculsion

Overall, this is a great gift for anyone (child or adult!) that loves their Star Wars! Just be sure to grab it quickly before it sells out this holiday season.

Amazon has the Resistance X wing Fighter in stock at the time of writing and have them on sale!
