In the Star Wars saga the B-wing Starfighter was one of the largest and most heavily armed starfighters/bombers in the Rebel Alliance’s fleet, personally designed by Admiral Ackbar. The name B-wing came from the craft’s remote similarity in appearance to the lowercase letter “b”, although its sword-like shape in attack-mode has earned it the nickname “blade-wing”, which may be another reason for the “b” prefix. It was the key Rebel craft during the battle of Endor where a fleet of B-wings took down an Imperial Star Destroyer. The B-wing served in other important battles as well. The Empire was trying to capture one of these bad-boys just to steal the design, but they remained unsuccessful in their attempt. 🙄
The #10227 LEGO Star Wars B-wing is not the first time LEGO tackles this interestingly shaped starfighter. In the year 2000 LEGO released the #7180 LEGO Star Wars B-wing at Rebel Control Center which included a B-wing, a rebel command center with B-wing pilot, Rebel mechanic, and R5-D4 minifigures. In 2006 LEGO released the #6208 LEGO Star Wars B-wing Fighter, which included an improved B-wing model, a display stand, and two minifigures: Ten-Numb and a Rebel pilot.

Why can’t you?
Because I don’t have a computer
and you can’t get on with your ipod?
I am on MLN, rank 4, taking forever to get the amount of clicks I need 🙁
It should be named the T-wing, not B-wing. I don’t even get how they would think of B-wing for it. Oh well. 🙄
The oldest b wing doesn’t look that good of a set 😕
The good thing about it was it was only $30
I would rather buy that set being thirty than this one that is $200
Yep it should be the t wing 😉

Yes there is. The Nazgul ride them wen they can’t ride their dragon thingys.

COMMANER THORN ITHINK HES GOING TO BE IN CW SEASON 5
That’s an awesome looking set. The B-wing is one of my favorite ship from the Star Wars saga. The Kenner version was one of the best toys I had. I want that set it is huge.
Yep thorn looks wicked!
I think this one will be skipped over a bit. Its not nearly as iconic as some other Star Wars vehicles. It is almost minifigure scale, so the lack of any minifigues is rather puzzling (would have been nice to re-release Ten Numb who was only available in the 2006 B-wing). I think a UCS minifigure scale version with a minifgure or two would help the price point and the desirability of the set significantly. As is it will likely be a like Obi Wan’s starfighter.
Jacob, yeah, adding a minifigure or two would have been nice! 🙂
I have the 2006 B-wing. I am not that famillar with ten numb,so, changed him in to nine numb.
Lol ten numb.
I mean lol nine numb
Wow, 77 coments in 3 hours! I already know about this from The Brick Brothers, I love the concept art.
A lot of them are off topic, I guess this is kind of too… 🙄
Ninjago marathon has started on cartoon network people!!!!
Nick, I don’t mind a few off-topic comments once in a while, but when the whole tread is starting to go to a different direction (like it happend this morning) I usually send a reminder to get back on course. 😉
Yeeeeaaaaaah sorry a bought that admin 😳
No problem. All is well. 😉
Who are the brick brothers?
I think Shade Snake is referring to the http://www.brothers-brick.com 😉
Yeah, probably. I go there to, you guys have better reading material though.
Hey! Ninjago in 30 minutes!
anyone watchin ninjago
The video blew my mind! Those new pieces that they used to allow them to clip the two halves of each wing together had me drooling. But alas, I will not be able to afford this set. My money is going towards 1) the new FFG X-wing miniatures game, 2) LEGO Hero Factory Breakout wave 2, and 3) LEGO The Lord of the Rings. B-wing is way cool, but I guess I’m just not an “ultimate collector.” 🙂
Yep I’m not ethier 🙂
Gabriel, I guess with all this LEGO goodness this year, the answer is getting more $$$. Let’s see… we can rob a bank (although they don’t seem to have much money left either these days), do it like the government and print more, or work more. Oh… and we also need a bigger house! 🙄
Yes! A bigger house is a must. My copy of Brickdicted just arrived, and I’m seeing more and more how I fit the bill.
Man, that is just one great set! 🙂
