Best LEGO Star Wars A-Wing Starfighter Sets

Few people would name the A-Wing Starfighter as one of their favorite ships, but that does not change the fact that it is as iconic as any other Rebel ship from the Star Wars Original Trilogy. For instance, it was the fastest starfighter in the Rebel fleet. Fortunately for us, it has certainly received a lot of attention from LEGO and thus we have seen it as a set once every few years.

Although the A-Wing is definitely not one of the most impressive ships in Star Wars, the older LEGO versions become more and more important for collectors. In the following text, we will discuss every single one that has ever been released and find out which one can be deemed as the best LEGO A-Wing set.

7134: A-Wing Fighter

Like any other set from the beginning years of the LEGO Star Wars theme, the design and overall build are quite primitive. There is no doubt that the newer versions are far more complete in all categories. Nevertheless, it does have that charm that all older LEGO sets have and is highly desirable by collectors.

Perhaps the best thing about this set compared to the most recent ones in the last decade is the addition of printed parts instead of stickers. It is widely known that few fans actually like the stickers that we see in most sets nowadays.

Besides that, the minifigures included are actually great, especially the A-Wing pilot in a green flight suit. Overall, the set does not include any distinctive play features besides the cockpit that can open and close but nevertheless, this was a great set for kids back in the day. It would be a great addition to any collection although the price today is much higher than the original $14.99.

6207: A-Wing Fighter

It took quite a few years for LEGO to release a second A-Wing set but this one was an huge improvement from its predecessor. By 2006, Star Wars had already become perhaps the most popular LEGO theme and there is no wonder that the sets were leagues above the ones from the founding years.

The 2006 A-Wing Fighter had a far more sleek design compared to the previous model and was incredibly accurate to the real starfighter from the movie. Once again, the minifigures were a pilot and a mechanic but there were slight changes in terms of color and design. We can safely say that the A-Wing pilot has one of the coolest colors out of the hundreds of minifigures we have seen in the last 20 years.

Unfortunately, the creators chose to put stickers instead of printed parts which is, obviously, the more expensive option. The price of $15.99 was great for this set back in the day but if you want it today, you would have to spend a fait bit more. Nevertheless, if you happen to find this set and contemplate whether it is worth it or not, think about how expensive small fighter sets are nowadays. The 2006 A-Wing definitely deserves your attention!

7754: Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser

When this set came out in 2009, I had high hopes that I would own it one day. Unfortunately, 10 years later I still do not have it in my hands and the price today has greatly increased. At the same time, the LEGO community were quite disappointed with this set. People were expecting something bigger and complete rather than three separate play areas connected into one large piece. After all, this set was a limited edition and was exclusive to Toys r Us .

Nevertheless, it does have a unique minifigure selection that includes characters that were never before made and have not been made since. Besides that, the A-Wing included in the set had incredible design and was the first one to be released in green.

Other than that, the set does not really have any unique features and was definitely a disappointment for the high price point. Today, it is two or three times more expensive due to its ages and exclusivity. It would make any collection more unique but you would really need to spend an extra dollar.

75003: A-Wing Starfighter

The inflation of prices is quite obvious when you compare this A-Wing set with the one from 2006. You can possibly put a higher price on the 2013 version due to the better minifigure selection but $10 is too much.

Of course, Admiral Ackbar was quite rare in minifigure form and he was one of the main reasons people bought this set. In addition, the A-Wing pilot had a brand new design that was absolutely incredible compared to the old versions. Nevertheless, I can remember that this set was available on the shelves for longer than usual which really proves that people were disappointed.

The A-Wing itself had a sleek design that was quite accurate to the movies. The play features included flick-fire missiles, a removable engine, and the cockpit. Other than the good looks, there was nothing unique about this set. It would take many years for this one to receive collectors’ attention but it will surely happen one day.

75150: Vader’s Tie Advanced and A-Wing Starfighter

The A-Wing in this set was based on the animated series Rebels and had a completely different design than any of the previous ones. Most noticeably, the color scheme of the entire design was changed. Besides that, another positive feature was the spring-loaded dart launchers that took the place of the old unpleasant flick-fire missiles.

Without a doubt, this version of the A-Wing was the most accurate one from all five before it. It definitely looks far more complete and the techniques used in the build are definitely impressive for such a small ship. Similarly enough, the TIE Advanced was the best one out of the four total as well. This version was Darth Vader’s personalized TIE and was really detailed and accurate to the animated series.

The minifigure selection itself was great but perhaps a bit too small for an $89.99 set that does not have nearly enough parts. LEGO tried to compensate for the low number of parts and minifigures with a larger box but that did not really pass through the fans. Many were left disappointed by the price and did not even purchase this set despite its awesome designs and features.

75175: A-Wing Starfighter

Despite the good minifigure selection, this set has one major flaw – it is simply too expensive. Will it be too much to mention the inflation of prices with LEGO sets once more? It is definitely a larger A-Wing compared to the majority of previous versions but that does not really make up for the high price.

The A-Wing itself is somewhat similar to the last version we saw from Rebels in 2016 but has the original color scheme in red. The build itself is fun and the overall design has one major difference that comes from the spring-loaded shooters hidden beneath the ship. Surprisingly enough, the creators have used some cool Technic pieces in this A-Wing set in order to make the activation of the shooters possible.

The minifigures are definitely the focal point of this set with Lando Calrissian as the most anticipated one. It was definitely nice to finally see Lando back as a minifigure. Hopefully, his appearance in The Rise of Skywalker will also be a good one.

The Lando minifigure will not impress with many details but has a nice color scheme with the printed orange torso and the cape in sand blue color. As for the remaining two figures, the Rebel Ground Crew member is nothing out of the ordinary but looks quite accurate. The A-Wing pilot was updated from the previous 2013 version and now comes in lighter green with brand new printing.

Overall, this set would have been worth it if it was either at least $10 cheaper or had at least one additional exclusive figure or two regular ones. Other than that, the A-Wing design is also nothing extraordinary but fairly nice overall.

75247: Rebel A-Wing Starfighter

This A-Wing set is one of the two we received this year but it is quite different from every other. It is part of the brand new LEGO Juniors line that targets the youngest audience with small-scale sets that cost less.

The overall design of this A-Wing miniature has, of course, been taken from the larger version but only the basic components have remained in the final build. You will actually see that some of the pieces are the same from the larger sets and, in some cases, look slightly oversized.

You can easily reach the conclusion that this set has nothing to impress with. Nevertheless, it is actually worth its price compared to the remaining Junior sets in the line. It also comes with two great minifigures that you as a fan would like but your kid will love. After all, this set was mainly created for the youngest of Padawans.

75248: Resistance A-Wing Starfighter

It was definitely great to know that the A-Wing has remained in use in the Resistance as well. This new design is green in color but retains the classic shape of the this famous ship.

The set, in particular, is fairly priced compared to other sets of this type and size. It is also the first A-Wing set that does not include an A-Wing pilot as a minifigure. Instead, we see two brand new and exclusive minifigures – Snap Wexley and Lieutenant Connix. 

For the starfighter itself, it has a far sleeker design than any of its ancestors or this is what we think, at least. Possibly, it could be due to the incredible green color which also has a larger coverage area in this A-Wing than in any of the previous versions. When you consider that LEGO has always been fairly accurate with the A-Wing designs, we now know how the starfighter will look in the movie.

Overall, this is an incredibly good-looking set that is worth the money. It will not impress you with play features but it compensates with looks and sturdiness.

Final Thoughts

The A-Wing definitely deserves more attention than it has ever received and it certainly will after The Rise of Skywalker comes out. LEGO has successfully created an amazing brand new version for their movie line this year and surprisingly, we chose it as our personal choice for the best A-Wing LEGO set. The color scheme of the 75248 Resistance A-Wing simply makes it look too good on display.

Overall, each of the eight A-Wings that have been released alone or in larger sets is slightly different from the rest but mainly the same. We will never get tired of seeing this lovely starfighter, but LEGO should give it a few years of rest now as it was released 4 times in the last 4 years.
