This product is subject to specific safety warnings
When the Rebels need a tough Starfighter, call in the Y-wing. Drive the weapons loader into position and lift the ammo into place. Then seat the Y-Wing Pilot, lift the landing gear and take to the skies. When you reach your target, fire the shooters and turn the gearwheel to open the hatch and drop the bombs.

The set comes in a nice big box - big enough to make an adult feel like they're getting their money's worth, and to make a child's eyes pop out in excitement. Inside the box, the set is split across 5 numbered bags to make the build easier - something Lego tends to do with all of their larger sets, and is especially useful with the Y-Wing due to its fiddly nature (which I'll mention shortly).
The build for me clocked in at just over 2 hours. I'm always keen to get my hands on the finished model so tend to build in a hurry - anyone taking the build at a more leisurely pace could probably stretch it out for another couple of hours, and younger builders would probably need the best part of an afternoon/evening to get through the whole thing.
This is where the Y-Wing loses a few points though, as it's not really a very enjoyable build. The first couple of bags are fine, making up the cockpit, the rear part of the body and the maintenance vehicle, but the engines are where things become tedious. At that point, the entire build becomes about rods, pegs, and sticker alignment. When building a Lego set there's something deeply satisfying about fitting big, chunky bricks together and seeing things take shape, but there is precious little of that with the Y-Wing build.
Stickers are quite divisive amongst collectors - personally I can take them or leave them, but I know that many feel it detracts a little from the build. The Y-Wing doesn't have a wide variety of stickers as some sets do, but it does have four very large stickers which need to be carefully aligned to make the front half of the engine pods. A slight misalignment of these will be very noticeable as they combine to create a wraparound effect.
Once the build is complete the Y-Wing is a very nice looking vehicle, and there a few little interactive parts to it. The lasers at the front of the ship can be fired by flicking the ends of the projectiles - again, this is a little disappointing as many of the Star Wars sets feature clever little devices to make them fire at a push of a button or turn of a lever, but here we're back to having the laser beams conspicuously protruding from the bottom of the cockpit for manual firing. Behind the cockpit, the Y-Wing can be loaded up with bombs through a small top hatch, and with a turn of the rear dial it can make bombing runs against Imperial installations (or the family dog). It also features three retractable landing struts, meaning it sits nice and stably on the shelf when not on missions.
The minifigure selection is quite good. Obviously the ship needs a pilot and an astromech droid, so both of these are provided. You also get a classic Imperial Stormtrooper to target with your impressive firepower (just until you get that lovely Lego Death Star, obviously). Admiral Raddus is also provided, and was the highlight of the set for me - at this point the Y-Wing is the only set he's available in, so if you're a Raddus fan then this is the place to go. The only odd choice in the set is the inclusion of Moroff. As one of Saw Gerrera's goons, he's out of the picture completely by the Battle of Scarif, so it seems a bit random to throw him in with the rest of a Scarif-themed set.
So to summarise - a nice looking model, just not really that fun to build. Young ones will undoubtedly need help with the large number of fiddly pieces and some of the brute force needed to slot the engines together. Worth paying £40-50 for, but not the full retail price.
Easy to assemble as ever. Pretty good value for what you're spending. Get them while they're still available and before the last few go at inflated prices.
To like: The new astromech, the bomb system using a rotating carousel, the engine pods, even the service rig is cool, especially when paired with the kit included with the A-wing set LEGO Star Wars A-Wing Starfighter 75175. The rear chassis detail is pretty cool and uses a lot of smaller parts.
Mildly disappointed with: the flicky torpedo launchers - in the A-Wing and U-wing the torpedoes are well housed inside the model with buttons built in - on this model they just stick on the bottom; the finish of the cockpit section - earlier versions had a smooth finish, these still have a really "bricky" finish, surely they could have done better. Neither of these things are enough to put anyone off buying it, though.
Anyway - seriously consider this item if you're a fan. And make plenty of space to put it in - it ain't small...
