Patience, patience. The 1,304-piece LEGO X-Wing Fighter set is a serious investment in time, however the finished product is breathtakingly cool. Eighteen inches long, 13 inches tall and eight inches wide, the finely detailed model includes hinged wings and an R2 astromech droid figure for added realism. Once you have got completed the model (the visual instructions are reasonably easy to follow), set it at the black plastic base with product details from the Incom Corporation. The Empire will crumble soon! —Rob Lightner
The Ultimate X-Wing (TM). When you think blasting the Death Star is tough, try building without equal X-wing fighter. With more than 1,300 pieces, it is likely one of the most realistic models within the galaxy. From its engine exhaust ports to the tips of its laser cannons, no detail has been lost sight of. Built to easiest scale, the X-wing has an impressive 20-inch wingspan. Comes with a display stand and detailed spec plate.
