The set 6212 X-Wing Fighter was released in 2006 as part of the Classic Star Wars line. Included are Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antilles, Han Solo, Princess Leia, R2-D2, and Chewbacca minifigures. It is one of the only 2 sets to include Wedge Antilles. The X-Wing can be customized as Luke's Red 5 or Wedge's Red 2 X-Wing.
- The set includes stands for the striped tiles that can be used to customize the fighter to be either Wedge's Red 2 or Luke's Red 5.
- Oddly, this set depicts Wedge's X-wing as being Red 3 instead of Red 2 (due to the number of red tiles the builder is instructed to put on the wings of the fighter). The instruction manual also incorrectly calls Wedge's fighter Red 3 instead of Red 2. Red 3 is actually Biggs Darklighter in the Star Wars universe.
- Even though this set was created in 2006, it wasn't discontinued until late 2011, before the release of its successor and replacement, the 9493 X-wing. This makes it by far the longest-running LEGO Star Wars set with a record of five years. Before its discontinuation, it was still available at a small number of Toys R' Us stores.
- Princess Leia's hair does not match her torso piece; the hairpiece is from Episode IV (A New Hope), and the torso is from Episode V (The Empire Strikes Back).
- Some of the sets have the newer versions of Han Solo and Luke's faces rather than the older ones. You can tell by the pupils.
