No joke. I waited 31 hours to buy a painting. The above painting, in fact, of an X-Wing fighter. But when I started waiting, I didn’t know this was what I was going to buy. I just knew I wanted to buy... something. It’s the result of a sick and twisted obsession that I’ve documented before, but never quite like this.
Growing up, I cut my tabletop teeth on miniatures games. Warhammer, 40K, Heroclix, and Warmachine. It’s a hobby that’s since given way to other pursuits, but will always be in my heart. It’s probably also clear at this point that I love X-Wings an awful lot. And yet, I’ve spent the past five years avoiding one of the…
After three seasons telling the story of the burgeoning Rebel Alliance, the fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels is finally going to show that central piece of rebel iconography: the X-Wing itself.
Don’t bother asking where or how you can buy one, because this is clearly a one-off creation for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, which gets underway today. But Mattel and Hot Wheels have gone and created a full-size, drivable version of the X-Wing car that will be available as part of a limited edition set during the…
As the weather gets nicer, it’s time to finally pause The Force Awakens and head outside for some fresh air and sunshine. That doesn’t mean you have to abandon Star Wars altogether. Not when ThinkGeek’s just revealed a wonderful kite collection full of X-Wings, Death Stars, and Droids.
Update: The Lego Group have asked that we remove the images from this post, and Leg Godt has complied with that request. The original text of the post is as follows.
The same company responsible for those incredibly tiny RC pico helicopter toys, Bandai Namco’s CCP, has created a line of Star Wars-themed flying toys that are small enough to recreate the films’ most epic space battles in your bedroom.
The popularity of rocking horses has seen a steady decline over the years because kids simply aren't interested in growing up to be cowboys anymore. Thanks to Star Wars, kids would rather grow up to be intergalactic fighter pilots now, so an X-wing-themed rocker just makes a lot more sense these days.
Fantasy Flight Games' X-Wing miniatures game is very cool - so cool that it's still part of my gift guide suggestions 2 years after it came out. But now one fan has made a board fit for playing it on, and it looks awesome.
A new J. J. Abrams' Star Wars VII video shows a new version of the X-Wing starfighter. It may look like a Z-95 Headhunter because it doesn't appear to have the classic s-foils that open to give it it's X attack shape, but this official tweet says it's the real thing. So, ladies and gentlenerds, behold the X-wing Mark…
Would the Rebel Alliance have been able to defeat the Death Stars and the Empire flying a bunch of wooden blocks? No. Then why wouldn't you want to store your kitchen knives in this X-wing shaped knife block that is clearly a superior design to a block of wood?
At five feet in length, Rodger Cleye's X-wing could be the largest flying Star Wars model to date. Except that since it's built with a framework of PVC piping to keep it light, it's the last thing the Rebels will ever want to take into battle.
This is truly unbelievable: Lego has built a 1:1 scale model of the X-Wing fighter using an astounding 5,335,200 bricks! It's as big as the real thing, capable of fitting the real Luke Skywalker—and Porkins.
Witness Lego's Red Five X-wing Starfighter, the latest, baddest and biggest official set to come out of Denmark and, without a doubt, the most accurate and awesome Lego X-Wing ever created. Much better than the original Lego X-Wing Ultimate Collector Series, the previous best.
I still like this Lego fan model more than the latest official Lego rendition of the Rebel Alliance's X-Wing, but I have to admit that I loved both to build and admire the final result.
Fly the Millenium Falcon. Undermine the Lannisters. Destroy the One Ring. Here's a look at the new Star Wars RPG, X-Wing miniatures game, the Game of Thrones card game, and other new releases from Fantasy Flight Games.
Somewhere, in a very different galaxy far, far away, the Rebel Alliance took down the first Death Star in X-Wings made primarily of beards and mustaches. Redditor BanditRaccoon posted this beardfighter photo, one of the few pieces of fanart we've seen sculpted from facial hair.
Rejoice, fellow Lego nerds, because Mike Psiaki just sent me the instructions and a part list for the best Lego X-Wing model ever created. Yes, my friends, now you can build your own.
Brothers Brick say this is the best Lego X-Wing yet and I agree. Made by Mike Psiaki's, it's amazing that he has been able to reproduce the Rebel's top star fighter with such exquisite detail, even topping Lego's official models.
