Any Star Wars fan will know what a X-Wing is and when you mix LEGO® and Star Wars together you get some incredible official and MOC sets. One very popular set is Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter (75301), we loved it so much that we wanted to make our own LEGO® Star Wars X-Wing mini build! Without any further delay let’s get started, we will cover some facts about the X-Wing and at the end there’s the FREE BONUS LEGO® X-Wing instructions that you came here for!

What is an X-Wing?

The X-Wing is a class of starfighter used by the Rebel Alliance when they battled the Galactic Empire, it is armed with four laser cannons and two proton torpedo launchers which made it a lethal weapon in the hands of someone like Luke Skywalker.

The name X-Wing was given due to the X shape its s-foils (its wings) make when it goes in to “attack mode” and there have been 8 models used to date, two of these however were the same model just with different exteriors.

Star wars Fandom have a lot more information available for each of the models if you were interested in finding out more.

What Was and When Was the First LEGO® X-Wing Released?

The first LEGO® X-Wing set to be released was the LEGO X-Wing Fighter (7140), this was released in October 1999 and consisted of just 250 pieces.

The LEGO X-Wing Fighter (7140) also came with four minifigures which were:

  • R2D2
  • Biggs Darklighter
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Rebel Technician

A fun fact about this set, did you know that it also included a comic book strip and instructions for alternate builds. Not only could you build the LEGO® X-Wing but you could also build a boat with a jet ski that was detachable, a full size communicator device, a mech or a full size lightsaber handle!

At the time of writing this there are currently 36 LEGO® X-Wing sets on the Bricklink database, these range from large sets right down to poly bag mini builds.

Hey, I am Matthew Mitchell and I am an AFOL from the UK. I have been fascinated by LEGO® since I was a child. My two children are in love with LEGO® and it's because of them that my interest continued to grow, this is how I fell in to the rabbit hole of MOCs (my own creation). 

With every new MOC I saw I became just a bit more addicted to the endless possibilities that LEGO® offers. This led me to creating Belle-Ve Bricks, a platform where talented designers can share their work with the world.

And where we can create together with you, custom models.
