Star Wars Lego 30051 X-Wing Starfighter

I found the Target exclusive Star Wars Lego 30051 to be an even more fun build than the 30050 Republic Attack Shuttle. These are both related to the Christmas 2009 releases, which I discussed here. The thing that I like the most about this model is that it includes a silver 1×1 round plate for the astromech unit. However, a silvered dome–like for levers–might have looked more impressive.

In the near future, I am going to take some new pictures with the Midi-scale Millennium Falcon (more about this kit here) and the above X-Wing to improve upon this composite image I created of the Death Star II run at CERN.

More images of the of the mini X-Wing with S-foils closed and frontal shot:
