Racing through the blackness of space, starfighter pilots battled the odds to survive in the intense dogfights and turbolaser fire. Among the best of the fighters, A-Wings (also known as “Slims”) made Imperials think twice before engaging in combat. With the fastest fighter in the Rebel Alliance arsenal, A-wing jocks liked to remind everyone else that hey were the fastest things in space. An excellent fighter, in the hands of a skilled pilot, the LEGO Star Wars 7134 A-wing FighterA-Wing can be made to dance. Dancing around capital ships and other fighters, the only fighters that even had a chance at keeping up with it were the Tie Interceptors.
Based off the design of the Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor (also known as the Jedi Interceptor), the A-Wing is little more than a cockpit with huge engines. And laser cannons, of course. These speedy little craft took a good deal of skill to handle; their speed meant that taking a hard turn might throw the craft into a deadly spin or crash into enemy ships. Built for rapid hit and fade attacks, these fighters could slag capital ship weapons and tear through squadrons of enemy starfighters before anyone knew what happened. However, their light shields and armor left them more vulnerable if anything did catch up to them. These fighters aren’t for cowardly LEGO pilots, but for men and women of all species that are willing to stand up for what is right and bring evildoers to justice. The most famous A-wing pilot was Arvel Crynyd, the pilot who crashed into the bridge of the Super Star Destroyer Executor during the Battle of Endor, turning the tide of the battle in favor of the Rebel Alliance. Developed in 2000 for the Classic Star Wars collection, this set contains the A-Wing fighter, A-Wing pilot and Rebel Mechanic minifigures.
The pilot wears a green jumpsuit, not the traditional orange of the Rebel Alliance forces. Wearing a headset microphone and a good crash helmet, this guy is ready to take on Imperial forces. The Mechanic, dressed in tan overalls and wearing a matching ball cap, has the skill to fix any Rebel Alliance fighter. Using his wrench and a bit of elbow grease, putting LEGO fighters back together isn’t a problem.
The fighter is a little blockier than the sleek A-wing should be. The body of the fighter is not rounded at all, but made from ramp parts instead of being smooth or sleek. The wings around the engines are large and ungainly, but are consistent with the typical A-Wing fighter. The engines are huge, normal for the A-Wing fighter, and include large glowing blocks to indicate flaring engines. The landing gear is fixed, but does stabilize the craft when docked or being displayed. This craft also has a secret compartment right behind the pilot. This secret compartment can hold secret plans, equipment or anything else the A-Wing pilot needs to take along for the ride. The laser cannons on the sides are able to swivel almost 90 degrees, giving Imperial TIE pilots quite a nasty shock.
This blocky fighter is well built and can handle some pretty rough play. At 123 pieces, this set is no pushover. The LEGO Company recommends this set for builders age 7 to 12, and it should be within the building skill of any moderately skilled builders.
In the beginning, these craft were never manufactured in a factory, but were pieced together in mechanic garages across the galaxy. As a result, the A-Wings were shrouded in mystery and no two A-Wing fighters looked alike, even though they were all built from the same basic design. Because of all the secrecy, when the A-Wings were finally used in combat, they caught Imperial forces completely off guard! Fight off the Imperials and free the galaxy in the A-Wing fighter!
