The Resistance X-wing Fighter is a new Star Wars, the Force Awakens, set that has hit stores last summer. It’s a really nice space ship with seven hundred and forty pieces that features the X Wing, a small island with a tower and four mini-figures: a First Order Flame trooper, Poe Dameron, a BB8 and Lord San Tekka.
Globally, the X Wing star ships don’t change too much from each other, that they’re always cool sets and every time there’s something new on each other to discover. The big nose, in this, one, looks pretty similar and looking closely, it’s built with a lot of different pieces and different shades.
In addition to the most expected Assault on Hoth (75098), some of the new Star Wars sets that will be available next Summer have also been unveiled in New York Toy Fair, showing some really nice space ships and a lot of action.
There isn’t any kind of set, the smallest of these will be the Eclipse Fighter with almost four hundred bricks and the biggest, the Clone Turbo Tank with more than nine hundred pieces. Some of them are just upgrades from existing models, others will brings some great features and playability as well as new figures.
Despite some restrictions about taking pictures of Star Wars, the first images of the summer sets, in Nuremberg 2016 Toy Fair in Germany, have been surfing in the internet showing some of the new sets that will make part of the next wave of releases, probably next May or June.
The detail in the pictures isn’t the best but it’s already possible to have an idea about several sets, namely the new Eclipse Fighter (75145), the Encounter on Jakku (75148), the Resistance X-Wing Fighter (75149), the Darth Vader’s Tie Advanced vs A-Wing Starfighter (75150), the Clone Turbo Tank (75151) and Captain Rex’s AT-TE Walker (75157).
