Normally when we post something LEGO-related on this site, it tends to be a custom build, because that's where the really amazing stuff happens.

Today, though, my hat is off to LEGO's designers, because this new X-Wing model is fantastic.


Replacing the older, weird-looking version (I never liked the nose), this Ultimate Collectors Series "Red Five" (that's Luke) isn't just huge, it's surprisingly "realistic" as well. I mean, there's a targeting computer in there.

Made up of 1558 bricks and due out in May, it'll sell for $200.
