Side By Side Review: 10240 Red Five X-wing Starfighter and 7191 UCS X-wing Fighter

Back when Lego started making Star Wars sets I was still in my “dark age” so I missed out on a lot of the early releases. Even by 2000, when the original UCS X-wing came out, I still wasn’t ready to throw that kind of money at a single set. After a few years of re-embracing the hobby I wound up paying a good deal more for a used second hand kit, worrying that if I didn’t pick one up then I would only face higher prices down the line. I never got around to building it but I was satisfied to have it on standby. Fast forward to last February and the new Red Five announcement. Suddenly that old set I had for the most part forgotten about became relevant again. Like everyone else I was surprised to see Lego redesigning such a large model, and curious how they’d stack up against each other. With that in mind, Ace managed to procure a copy of the new set for me on the condition that I would review both at the same time. So. Here we are.
