Lego Star Wars Luke’s X-Wing Fighter 6212

Luke’s updated Lego X-Wing Fighter 6212 was a particularly fun build. Originally, I had the first version of Luke’s X-Wing from 1999 or so, and though cool, it doesn’t muster next to the awesomeness of this particular model. The wings crank open, there is a storage pod underneath the X-Wing as shown in The Empire Strikes Back, and it uses some smart building techniques to give it the angular look and color scheme. Also, the kit included extra minifigs of Wedge, Han, Leia, and Chewbacca from ESB.
