Red Five standing by! You can now get a buildable Lego model of Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing from Amazon, and save $10 in this pre-Black Friday deal. 

The 474-piece Lego X-Wing comes with awesome minifigures including Luke Skywalker with his lightsaber, Princess Leia and R2-D2. An X-Wing model is a must have for any Lego Star Wars fan or collector and you can check out our Lego Star Wars X-Wing review to see what this is like before buying.  

This pre-Black Friday deal has come just in time for the holidays and 20% off ($49.99 down to $39.99) is pretty good value – especially if you’re looking for a great gift for the Star Wars fan in your life. If Lego Star Wars is your thing but an X-Wing isn’t, be sure to check out our Lego Star Wars deals and best Lego Star Wars sets pages. 

Builders can recreate classic scenes from the original trilogy or imagine their own adventures as the X-Wing features an opening cock-pit, movable wings, landing gear and two spring-loaded shooters. That – on top of the minifigures included – offers a lot of playability options and makes this a great holiday gift for any Jedi Master or Padawan over the age of nine. 

The model can also be used as a centerpiece item due to the high quality finish of the Lego bricks and of course, the iconic look of the ship itself. Measuring at over 3 inches (8 centimeters) in height 12.5 inches (31 centimeters) long and 11 inches (28 centimeters) wide, this would stand out in any room it was placed in. 

474 pieces represents a good amount of Lego bricks in the set, enough to provide a few hours of fun but not too many so that building the model becomes too difficult and tedious. A saving of $10 just in time for the holidays represents a good deal and after all, this is a Lego X-Wing so it could be the perfect gift this year.
