New LEGO X-wing Fighter Coming Soon: Red Five, Standing By!
February 18th, 2013
Get your X-Wing pilot suit on and ready your Astromech droid. LEGO fans who are itching for a new Star Wars set will be happy to learn that a new X-Wing starfighter set will be coming out this May.
The set is 10240 – the Red Five X-Wing Starfighter. It will be available for $200(USD). Sure that’s expensive, but your childhood memories are priceless right? For that price you get 1,558 LEGO pieces, and one R2 unit.
The X-Wing offers tons of detail, including smoothly-moving wings, accurate laser cannons, a see-through cockpit with a hinged canopy, and even a little place for R2-D2 to hang out.
Check out the video below and the Flickr gallery for all of the details if you want to drool, and then start counting your money.
Then go put that money in a safe place and wait and say, “Red Five, Standing by (until May!)”
