I am a massive fan of LEGO as a member of that odd group of people known as AFL (adult fan of LEGO). So when I had some Amazon vouchers for my birthday this was my first choice of what to buy and I was not disappointed! It is quite a large set and although it took a while to put together it was very worth it. After building you have an excellent large model of an X-Wing fighter with wings that open into the famous X position at the twist of a dial. This set should please young and older builders alike. So when you really need to stick it to the dark side, this LEGO set has to be your first choice.

Pros;
4 minifigures
Moveable wings
Great size

Cons;
Price is high (as with many sets of this size)
The X-Wing is quite heavy when built which might be a bit much for younger ones
I now have 3 R2-D2s!

ages 8-14? my husband was 41 this year and I bought this for him for his birthday and have never seen him so engrossed. It took roughly 3-4 hours to build but that was taking our time, it could have been done quicker I'm sure. It looks really good now it's complete and there are a few different figures that go along with it. It's now proudly displayed on the shelves in his "man-cave".

Amazingly detailed set, great mini-figures. Excellent build quality when finished. Wait to buy when it's on offer (under £40) rather than full price, but it's a must-have set for any Star Wars lego fan.

This is a really detailed kit with plenty of features. Alongside the craft itself come the support crew and associated figures. Great value for money.

LEGO Star Wars 9493: X-Wing StarfighterI got this for Christmas, my Mum had no idea what to get me this year and thought this would be a great present, the detail in this is amazing, comes with 4 figures and the wings even deploy into Attack formation. Took me about 2 hours to build over Christmas day and Boxing day. Sadly you cant display it with it wings in the x position. But i went and found my old lego while i was at my Mums for Christmas from when i was a kid and constructed 2 tall pillars so it could be displayed like this. Well worth a purchase if you can find it at a good price.

It proudly sits on my display shelf, I think i've got the Lego bug back again after many years.. I've just bought the Tie Fighter from this very website.

ok, so buying this product for a 4 yr old wasnt a good idea. but then the lego was never for him anyway, it was for me. I read a couple of reviews that said the instructions were hard to follow. i beg to differ. they were spot on. very thorough and in a good step by step format. and its been years, maybe even decades since i put a lego set together so its not like i had any real experience either.

its a great product, well made, well thought it and now built it is providing hours of entertainment for my little boy. although i do keep having to tell him that R2D2 should be in the back and that it should be luke skywalker flying it. and not even get me started on why hes decided that R5D8 should be stood on one of the wings !!!

We bought this for my step-son's 10th birthday. He absolutely loves it. We also visited a well know toy store to see what they had to offer and this exact product was £49.99 in there and it was just under £30 on here. What a fabulous bargain for a fantastic well-known product. :)
