Build the Riot’s heavy strike ship with this exciting set!
Long-awaited by fans and collectors, this B-Wing fighter model is a wonderful replica of the spaceship riot forces used in Return of the Jedi’s Battle of Endor all through the final defeat of the Death Star II and the Empire. A reissue of a formerly released B-Wing fighter set (7180), this ship is bigger than the original—standing 15 inches tall on the display stand–and has almost 100 more pieces (435 as opposed to 338). Like the vessel in the movie, the fighter has wings that manually open from parallel to perpendicular and a rotating and self-leveling cockpit. Other features of the B-Wing include a hinged canopy on the cockpit and a missile launcher that shoots two missiles. A docking bay, which doubles as a display stand, holds the missiles and a selection of six tools. The set comes with two B-Wing pilot minifigs (Ten Numb and one unnamed pilot). These minifigs have flesh-toned skin as a substitute of the more collectible yellow skin on the earlier Star Wars figures. Purists can be disappointed that Lego includes decals to adhere to pieces in this set relatively than going to the expense of painting designs directly on the bricks. The B-Wing fighter takes anywhere from two to four hours to build with some help from the illustrated instructions. The manual also comprises a full inventory of all pieces with part numbers in case a piece is lost and builders wish to order a replacement. –Cristina Vaamonde
