The LEGO JEK-14’s Stealth Starfighter set (75018) is part of the Mid-year 2013 LEGO releases for the perennially popular Star Wars theme.
Unlike most other sets in this wave, the Stealth Starfighter is part of what is known as the Expanded Universe, ie it is not part of the films or animated series (regarded as canon), rather the set features characters and situations from the Yoda Chronicles, an online web-series.
It is a very impressive looking ship and you can definitely see a resemblance to the x-wing, though with a much darker tone. Apparently Jek-14 is the antagonist in the series, and he certainly makes for an interesting minifigure – look at that arm! The other minifigures are also unique to this set and will make it appealing for collectors.
How the set performs however will depend on the success of the Yoda Chronicles series which seems to be a bit haphazard at present. Hopefully LEGO and Star Wars can make it a success.
