Star Wars Lego 9493 X-Wing Starfighter

The X-Wing, for any Star Wars fans, you can’t miss this iconic fighter plane that Luke Skywalker flew in Star Wars IV – A New Hope. It is probably one of the most favourite Star Wars Starships among the Star Wars fans, the other hot favourite among Star Wars fans, in my opinion is probably the Millennium Falcon! The Star Wars X-Wing is one of my favourite Star Wars starships, I can’t forget the scene when the X-Wing fighters formed up to attack the Death Star I in Star Wars IV – A New Hope.


I was slowly building up my Star Wars Lego collection, selecting those that are my favourites, recreating Star Wars movies scenes and creating my own Star Wars Lego scenes of my own world. When I got hold of the Star Wars Lego 9493 X-Wing Starfighter, I was very excited to start building it! The 9493 X-Wing is really cool and fun, there is R2D2 to accompany Luke Skywalker mini-figurine! My cousin Joel, a real big time Lego + Star Wars Lego fanatic (I can’t chase/match up to his level of collection!) advised me that the smaller 9493 X-Wing is more suitable for my scenes creation versus getting the Star Wars Lego Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) 10240 Red Five X-Wing Starfighter (that is something it is on my mind too, planning to get the UCS X-Wing Starfighter in the future!).


Building the Lego 9493 X-Wing Starfighter wasn’t too difficult, it just might be a bit more lengthy in time with the number of bricks and parts. On top of that, I had been regularly taking photographs of each step in building the X-Wing and some of the steps might take a bit more time with the knob, mechanism, gears and nuts that allow the X-Wing to open up their wings for attack mode, remember the words “Lock S-foils in attack position”!


When I finished building the Star Wars Lego 9493 X-Wing Starfighter, I was very happy and excited, just like the young kid in me again! Right after that, I placed the X-Wing beside my Echo Base gun turret and Snowspeeder, preparing/visualising for my Battle of Hoth scenes in Star Wars V – Empire Strikes Back that I was planning to create!


In my own world of Lego and Star Wars, I combined the world of Star Wars together, out of the original Star Wars Trilogy, my own Star Wars Lego Scenes. This was very fun and interesting for me as I create something out of the original story/history line! Do remember to check out my Star Wars Collection on Flickr for more updates!
