10134 – UCS Y-wing

IMG_5594

Last month, I unboxed an archived set – the awesome Ultimate Collector’s Series Rebel Y-wing.

This set was originally released way, way back in 2004 – over ten years ago.  This set resided within the original box, in very good condition.

The set was very easily disassembled for storage, and as a result was easy as pie to reassemble.

I really love this set – it has so much detail, the greebling looks amazing, and the fighter looks very impressive when put together. 

Plus, now I have a TIE Fighter for it to dogfight with!

It scales very well to the little astromech droid who sits patiently behind the cockpit. 
The twin engines look impressive, although after some time they do start to bend.

This is an incredibly slick set, one of the best UCS sets out there.

I’ll be reassembling the Red 5 X-wing soon, to compare it against Vader’s TIE and the TIE Fighter.  Stay tuned for more.
