This Incredible Full Scale Lego X-Wing Is the Largest Model In History

Image for article titled This Incredible Full Scale Lego X-Wing Is the Largest Model In History

This is truly unbelievable: Lego has built a 1:1 scale model of the X-Wing fighter using an astounding 5,335,200 bricks! It's as big as the real thing, capable of fitting the real Luke Skywalker—and Porkins.

As you can see in these exclusive Gizmodo images and video, it reproduces the official $60 Lego 9493 X-Wing Fighter. But instead of being 560-pieces and a few inches long, this model uses more than five million pieces and it's 11-feet tall and 43 feet long, with a 44-foot wingspan. Just like the real X-Wing—and 42 times the size of the commercial Lego set.

  • Weighs 45,979.61 pounds (including bricks and steel infrastructure)
  • Height: 11 feet / 3.35 meters
  • Length: 43 feet / 13.1 meters
  • Wingspan: 44 feet / 13.44 meters

Engines that light up and roar

There's only one thing different from the original model: the engines glow and roar like the X-Wing in the movies. Check it out:

Where to see it

To capture these photos and videos, Gizmodo had to travel to an airplane hangar near New York City, where the model had arrived by ship from the Lego Model Shop in Kladno, Czech Republic. But you can see it for yourself now if you are in Manhattan, since it's on display in the middle of Times Square. According to Lego:

The model was heavily engineered to withstand all the transportation, setup/break down and to ensure it was safe for Times Square given the subway system below and California’s seismic requirements for the Legoland California Resort installation.

Not in New York? Don't worry. After three days in the city, the X-Wing will be transported to the West Coast, where it will stay until the end of the year. And, by the way, you will be able to sit inside:

If you’re a fan of the franchise, the Lego Star Wars X-Wing kit is probably the one you’ll be most excited about. Not only is it an absolutely classic design, and a must-have for any Lego collector, but it also comes with three highly collectible minifigures: classic Luke, classic Leia, and classic R2-D2. It’s a superb nostalgia package, but what are the actual build and model like? Does it earn a spot on our best Star Wars Lego kits list? 

Essential info

Average price: $50/£45 

Model number: 75301

Pieces: 474 

Finished item dimensions: 3 x 12.5 x 11 inches 

As ever, we set about constructing the X-Wing under our standard review parameters. It was this reviewer and his five-year-old boy, in order to assess how suitable this kit is for kids. We followed the three-stage instructions to the letter, and noted down how each part of the build went. To finish off, we actually played around with the model to see how it holds up as both a toy and a collectible. So, is this an essential part of the Star Wars block-iverse? Read on to find out.

Lego Star Wars X-Wing review: Build

The Lego Star Wars X-Wing is built in three separate stages. The cockpit is first, then the engines, then the wings. It feels like a natural order to construct it in, and everything starts off really well - we enjoyed putting together the cockpit, seeing how that pointed-nose shape is achieved. Building the main engine section is the most satisfying and challenging section, as you’re not only creating a more intricate shape, you’re also making the main moving part of the craft - the opening and closing of the S-foils. This is the part we enjoyed the most, although it was too challenging for our younger builder.

After this, it all goes downhill. The wings, by their very nature, are a little boring; you need to build four of them before you clip them onto the X-Wing body using those tube and hole pieces. Our five year-old lost interest here, and so did we. The build took just over a couple of hours to complete, and by the end we had a finished X-Wing and three minifigs. 

Overall, the instructions were very easy to follow, and while the mid-section was too complex for younger builders (this is a 9+ recommended model), everything was relatively simple. However, while it starts off being interesting, the excitement quickly levels off once you’re constructing the wings.

Lego Star Wars X-Wing review: Design and look

In terms of authenticity, the Lego Star Wars X-Wing is first-rate. From the minifigs to the overall look of the spaceship, it’s very faithful. The colors are perfect, the stickers add an extra layer of detail, and the dimensions are excellent too. This is a superb collector model for sure, and rivals the recent Lego TIE Fighter for ‘realism’.

Sadly, it all falls apart when you start to play with it. Literally. While the opening and closing of the S-foils is relatively satisfying, it does highlight how flimsy the wings feel when attached to the body of the craft. Firing the green laser projectiles from the bottom wings is awkward to do, and you’ll likely knock off an exhaust port or two while you’re trying to access the spring-loaded mechanism. We spent more time replacing pieces that fell off than our young tester actually spent playing with it, which is a real shame.

Elsewhere, the landing gear is really loose too, and keeps falling off, so it’s difficult to put down and pick up repeatedly without having to repair the model. While Luke and R2 fit neatly in the cockpit and droid slot respectively, they never feel snug, so they rattle around a little too.

If you combine (and play with) the X-Wing vs the TIE Fighter, which everyone will want to do, it’s very obvious which craft is better built, and is more likely to survive the encounter (spoiler alert: it isn’t the X-Wing). Looks like the bad guys win again!

Should you buy the Lego Star Wars X-Wing?

Yes and no. While we love the detail and authenticity of the Lego Star Wars X-Wing, we don’t love the quality of the finished model. It’ll fall apart in even the most careful of hands if you try to play with it as intended. For collectors who will pop it on a shelf, this isn’t much of an issue, and anyone who wants it for the visuals only should absolutely snap this kit up. If you or your kids are intending to play with it, we’d recommend real caution.

Overall, it’s great value at just under $50 (and even down to $40 in the sales), and you get a good-sized model for your money. While the build isn’t the most thrilling, it’s still fine for a two to three-hour project, and seeing such an iconic ship taking shape is quite satisfying. We just wish we didn’t have to spend most of our time fixing it, rather than using it to save the Lego galaxy.

What other Lego Star Wars can you buy?

We’re going to assume you already have the TIE, and recommend that - if you don’t want this X-Wing - you get Po Dameron’s version instead, which is still available. It’s a slightly larger kit at 761 pieces, and the wings are a little more sturdy due to the large engines on the side. You’ll be able to pick it up for around $90 in most stores, although it’s regularly on sale.

If you’d rather try a different flavor of Rebel fighter, the Rise of Skywalker Y-Wing is still available, and the ship itself is a fun build. You’ll get it for $70 from most retailers, and it’s still widely available. Sure, it comes with some dull minifigs, and it isn’t the classic Y-Wing from the original trilogy, but it’s still well worth a look.

    X-wing Starfighter

    X-wing Starfighter

    The X-wing is a versatile Rebel Alliance starfighter that balances speed with firepower. Armed with four laser cannons and two proton torpedo launchers, the X-wing can take on anything the Empire throws at it. Nimble engines give the X-wing an edge during dogfights, and it can make long-range jumps with its hyperdrive and its astromech droid co-pilot. Luke Skywalker is famous for destroying the Death Star behind the controls of an X-wing.

An X-Wing starfighter being prepped for take-off

For the Rebel Alliance, the X-wing starfighter’s greatest asset was its versatility. X-wings were nimble enough to dogfight with TIE fighters while tough enough to slug it out with Imperial ships of the line. That made them a good choice for the Alliance in its showdown with the first Death Star, where X-wings had to combat starfighters and turbolaser emplacements, then perform a bombing run down a narrow trench on the battle station’s surface.

While often flying in conjunction with other starfighter models, X-wings remained the backbone of the rebels’ starfighter corps after the Battle of Yavin. They ably performed escort duty during the evacuation of Hoth’s Echo Base and proved critical to the attack on the second Death Star at the Battle of Endor.

Luke raising his X-wing

When he went into exile on Ahch-To, Luke sunk his X-wing offshore – but returned as a Jedi spirit and used the Force to raise and repair it for Rey. She piloted the starfighter to Exegol, transmitting Luke’s old Alliance callsign so the Resistance could follow her.

Fantasy Flight X-wing scale list

Fantasy Flight Games has several tabletop miniature games for Star Wars. My collection mainly focuses on the pre-painted X-wing and Armada lines of starfighters and capital ships. However, FFG also makes some nice figure-sized lines in the Legion and now-discontinued Imperial Assault lines.

The Armada and X-wing lines come pre-painted and usually covered in a heavy, dark wash. Luckily, the paint is solid enough to act as a nice primer coat should you wish to paint them. As for construction, they seem attached with something like super-glue. So, if you want to pop them apart for lighting, just twist/rock the parts (or freeze them for a few hours beforehand). You can also find "breakdown" guides online if you search.

While most miniatures require super-glue to assemble, I've found that the Legion vehicles work fine with styrene cement making them easy to customize. Moreover, Legion seems to aim for 1/46 scale, but would easily pass for 1/48 making Bandai kits excellent diorama accessories.

In 2020, Fantasy Flight Games merged with Asmodee, who then moved development to a new studio called Atomic Mass Games. In short, Atomic Mass Games develops them, Asmodee owns/distributes them, but most people still know them as Fantasy Flight.

And hey, I'll never be able to afford all of these, so please send me some measurements if you can (metric preferred with calipers).

Give her a siphon enema before starting the examination, and asked her if she had ever been given an enema. She shyly said no, never. I suggested that she take off her skirt, panties and stockings, and lie on the couch on her left side, bending her legs to her stomach. Luda was very shy, but obediently complied with the order, took off all the clothes from the lower half of the body and lay down on.

Her long blonde hair curled and ran down to her shoulders. Her eyes were large pools of blue sky, and mouth full and generous with lovely teeth. When the cleaning was over, Uncle Misha took a bottle of cognac and announced. That he and Peter were going to the bathhouse to drink tea and were ready to watch a striptease there.

Now discussing:

I'm still shy. I have never undressed in front of a man, of course, with the exception of my husband. I felt that my breath caught in excitement, my hand involuntarily began to stroke my penis under the table. Oksana hesitated, she did not dare to take off her robe.

I decided that she needed a little help.
