Guest Post: X-wing Times Square Event

XwingEvent4

When I posted earlier this week asking for a volunteer field reporter for the Times Square event that happened earlier today, Maxwell Lux stepped up to the plate and answered the call. He snapped up a few photos and did a write up. A bit unusual for what I was looking for but worth reading:

You know that even in Times Square happening today, right now as I type this? The big reveal is a life-sized LEGO Star Wars X-wing model. Naturally, Gizmodo‘s got the scoop with the pic above. The below press release was also transmitted over the interwebs. We have a field reporter onsite who will be taking pictures and writing up his experience of the event which we will publish later today, so stay tuned.

If you want to check out a video of how the model went from concept to reality, Popular Science has that as well as a bunch more photos.

After the unveiling today, the model will find its way over to LEGOLAND California where it will be on permanent display. The arrival date for the X-wing will be June 13th, right in time for Star Wars Days happening on Father’s Day weekend June 15-16.

TIE-ing Up Loose Ends

TIE06

After creating his X-wing earlier this month as a companion to his Y-wing, -2×4- has given his starfighters someone to fight by building his own TIE.

With the new versions of these sets trickling onto the shelves, I look forward to more MOC’s popping up. Stay tuned for the upcoming set reviews as well!

(X+Y) by (2×4) = Awesome²

XuYWing

A crime has been committed and I’m here to rectify the situation. On Monday -2×4- presented his version of the iconic X-wing and it wasn’t posted. Then on Wednesday he re-shot it on a black background to really make it pop and it went unposted. Today he put up a picture of her with his custom Y-wing from 2010 and that was all I could stand, I can’t stands no more! Here they are in all their glory and my apologies to -2×4- for this taking so long. With all the great X’s & Y’s being built it’s a good thing LEGO is including some desirable minifigs in their latest versions, which I for one will probably still skip.

Build a Psiaki X-wing Yourself

X-wing plans

Mike “Psiaki” is a name you should be familiar with. He’s been featured on here a few times in the past, most recently for his X-wing MOC. He’s been gracious enough to give back to the community by providing building instructions for his X-wing on his Brickshelf account. There’s no parts list but the pictures should be clear enough to figure out what you’ll need step by step. Thanks, Mike!

Psiaki’s X-wing

Mike “Psiaki” has built one of the most accurate X-wing MOCs I’ve ever laid eyes on. The integrated landing gear, movie-accurate laser cannons, and proper engines are the highlights of the model. More pics below:

Technic Snowspeeder

From the thumbnail, I first thought of it as a tiled over System-scale T-47, but once I clicked through, I quickly realized how wrong I was. The Technic Snowspeeder was built by Antti Hakala (drakmin), who also built a pretty impressive Technic X-wing.

Red Two Standing By

Draykov brought this amazing X-wing to the community’s attention. Awesome work by Marshall Banana:

Very accurate and very close to minifig scale.
