Lego 7915 - V-Wing Fighter

The V-wing fighter was one of those blink-and-you'll-miss-it space crafts that made a brief appearance in Star Wars Ep. III: Revenge of the Sith. It was part of the Imperial fleet after the fall of the Galactic Empire. It has a working cockpit and rotating wings to toggle between flying and landing modes. A nice colour design of black and silver enhances its menacing look. To top it off, it comes with two mini-figures - a new-look Imperial pilot and a silver astromech droid (R2-Q2). The V-wing fighter measures 12cm wide and 22cm long. However, at 139 pieces and almost similar price point to the Lego 7929 - The Battle of Naboo set, this is relatively pricey.
