LEGO Star Wars Resistance X-Wing Fighter 75149 Review
Regardless of who your favourite character is, Star Wars holds a very special place in the hearts of both children and adults alike. Thanks to the latest movie releases, Star Wars toys are coming out all the time.
The Resistance X-Wing Fighter set from LEGO is set to be one of the biggest sellers for the 2016 holiday season.
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).
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
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.
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.
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.
