which x wing set to buy

As the title suggests, I am looking for any opinions on these two sets.  I have read the reviews and am still undecided.  In Australia, I can get either set new, the 10240 for $270 and the 9493 for $170.

For the prices I have given which would you buy??

    Assuming you can afford either, then spend the extra $100 and get the Red Five - it's an absolutely epic model.  I'm sitting here looking at it now, and it's superb.

    Nothing wrong with 9493, but 10240 just knocks it out of the park.

    ^ agreed.  I think I have every X-wing except the first UCS one and of the system ones #9493 is really well done, but #10240 is just magnificent in comparison.

    #9493 does come with Porkins though... :tongue:

    Ummpin' Yumminy! That's a lot for a 9493! Here's a link where you can get a NIB 9493 in Australia for $100 AU.

    I love the 9493 as it is pretty close to minifig scale and very well detailed. No experience with the #10240 as I've got the old #7191 and am very happy with it.

    I had no idea about bricklink, I'll have to go sign up to it.  Is it safe to use??
  • bobabricksbobabricks Member Posts: 1,842
    @mii11x I've found it very safe. Just make sure you use PayPal and find sellers with little to no bad feedback.

    Thanks bobabricks, so looking at it its like ebay for lego
  • bobabricksbobabricks Member Posts: 1,842
    @mii11x Exactly, except you don't need to worry about bidding.

    I would prefer Red Five. UCS is always UCS. For kids, the other goes better.

    There's a new X wing coming out for Star wats episode 7 which I imagine will be systems scale but within a good price (it will get discounted at some point).

    594 transactions both buying and selling. Never had a problem.

    It's the #1 site to find Lego parts, instructions, boxes and, of course, complete sets.
