I really need to get back into LEGO. I'm already a huge Star Wars fan, so this just makes sense for someone like me. Today LEGO announced the latest in their line of massive Star Wars LEGO starships: the B-Wing starfighter!
Great googaly-moogaly, this is beautiful. I’d need a whole other job or two just to afford all of the LEGO sets I want just in the Star Wars galaxy (not to mention Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and various Disney/Marvel products), but this looks like a good start to a new era of satisfying my collecting and building obsessions.
Until we can get our hands on this baby (all 1486 pieces, due in October), check out this video on how the LEGO Star Wars B-Wing Starfighter was designed along with its features and specs below.
