On the toy, it seems they've slightly updated the plastic mixture as it seems less prone to warping than the previous ones and the wings fit together tightly (they wobbled a bit on the older ones). Scale wise, it is probably 9/10 compared to the figures...close enough (the older 1977 and 1995 Xwings and the current trilogy collection Xwing are like 1/2 scale...yuck).
It has some educational value...at least if your child wants to learn the dimensions and nuances of the Xwing (it does encourage reading I guess).
All in all, I love it. It doesn't come with an astromech droid, but since I have like 10 it is no big deal. Remember, R2-D2 does NOT BELONG IN THIS SHIP AS IT IS NOT RED 5. Eh, you can do what you want, but you won't be accurate. The figure fits perfectly; the body is based on the 2001 version of Luke with the generic head they've used a few times.
I'm a little concerned about the durability of the wings. You can have it in attach mode, or x-wing mode. Time will tell how well that feature holds up.
Overall, really, really cool.
However, there are two small improvements that toy could have. It should have included an R2 robot, which would have added value to an already excellent toy. Also, the cockpit is very small and just barely fits a typical Star Wars figure. In contrast, the Jedi Starfighter and the A-Wing Fighter have very roomy cockpits that can very, very easily fit almost any Star Wars and GI Joe figure. The pilot that is included here is a bit more on the small side and fits inside the cockpit comfortably, but I think it would have been much better to just scale the vehicle a little bigger to make it more compatible with the rest of the Star Wars line. For my X-Wing, I removed the bottom seat cushion and some interior molding inside the nose to make more room.
Despite those two minor points, this vehicle looks and functions absolutely great. All you need now is a TIE Fighter. I highly recommend this X-Wing! Go get it!!

The wings move. The details are very accurate. The figurine fits properly. A good addition to my display case. My friends really like it.Published on January 26, 2013 by troy groetken
The only gripe I have is that there is no R2 unit included. The pilot is included and is a nice touch. Read morePublished on October 7, 2004 by Arun Ballie
