I decided to spend my birthday gift tokens this year on expanding my LEGO spaceship fleet. This time, I chose to add the Y-Wing Starfighter to my collection. While not as recognisable as the popular X-Wing, the Y-Wing first appears in the original Star Wars film and is best known as being piloted by Gold Leader during the strike on the Death Star. This particular model kit differs slightly as it’s based on the Y-Wings that appear in Rogue One.
The kit comes with all the pieces needed to make the Y-Wing and a small yellow Weapons Loader. The ship itself boasts an array of weapons, rotating guns, working landing gear and rotating turrets. It also comes with an astromech and four minifigures – Admiral Raddus, Moroff, a Y-Wing Pilot and a Stormtrooper.
Here are some better pictures of what came inside the box:
