Now that we’ve cooled down a little bit from all the LEGO Scooby-Doo news this morning, let’s turn our attention to LEGO Star Wars. There’s a new image coming out of Eurobricks of a Stormtrooper Sergeant minifigure polybag from the Rebels line. There’s no mentioning of how it will be distributed because it’s not on our list of 2015 promotions. If I were to guess, it will be available to volunteers who participate in the 2015 LEGOLAND California Star Wars Days by building and bringing a MOC to display. I’ll have to confirm with Ace from FBTB later if this is the minifigure that will be given out or not. I would also guess that it’ll be available to the general public at a later date, most likely as a gift with purchase.
Update: There’s also reports that the Stormtrooper Sergeant will be available in a goodie bag for the first 500 visitors to the park who are dressed up in a Star Wars costume.

Star Wars Days at LEGOLAND California is almost here and FBTB has information on how you can participate in their annual Fan Gallery in the area on top of The Model Shop. If you haven’t attended Star Wars Days before, the Fan Gallery is pretty much a collection of Star Wars themed MOCs that local builders bring to show the public. You can check out the builds from last year here.
There are some incentives this year to volunteering your time and/or bringing a MOC. For just volunteering, you can get a Star Wars Days 2015 T-shirt, free entry to the park and lunch for the day of your shift. Each shift consists of a total of four hours.
For bringing a MOC, you get free entry to the park for both days of the event as well as lunch, and “exclusive” minifigure, a discount coupon for The Big Shop (20% off of up to 5 items), and a pair of complimentary passes to the park for future use.
Also for bringing a MOC, there are also prizes for best builds in a particular category (Empire Strikes Back Vignettes, Star Wars Comic Bricks, Star Wars Cube Dudes Diorama, Evolved Starfighters, and The General Category). To read more on those prizes, head over to the FBTB link above to see what you could possibly win if you bring a MOC and it is chosen as a winner. You can also contact Ace if you have any questions.
Star Wars Days will be happening this year at LEGOLAND California on March 7 & 8. On March 5th, they will be revealing the new Death Star scene at the Star Wars Miniland. While you’re at the park, you can also check out The LEGO Movie Experience if you haven’t seen it before. I plan on attending and trying to cover the event barring any unforeseen circumstances so I hope to see some of you guys there.
Back on Christmas Day, we reported on a list of rumored LEGO Star Wars Summer 2015 sets. Well the folks over at Jedi News now has the tentative release dates as well as UK pricing for the sets so you can get a sense of how large the sets will be. Additionally, there will be 7 sets that will be based on Episode VII: The Force Awakens and two of them will be a new Millennium Falcon and X-Wing. Yes, you heard that right. A new Millennium Falcon and X-Wing based on the new movie! It’s not a huge surprise that those two will be making an appearance. It’s also interesting how the LEGO Star Wars Summer 2015 will be split in two waves this year.

It hasn’t been a week yet into 2015 but there’s already bad news. Remember all those promos that LEGO was having with the LEGO Creator Flower Cart (40140), LEGO Star Wars AT-DP (30274), and the LEGO Friends Mini Golf Set (30203)? I’m sad to say that the first two has pretty much been completely sold out. You heard that right. In fact from what I heard, the AT-DP was sold out probably on the second or third day, even at my local LEGO Store. Below is what a rep from LEGO emailed to one of our readers:
Thanks for getting in touch with us.
I’m so sorry the LEGO® 30274 Star Wars AT-DP is in fact sold out completely. We received such a high amount of orders we quickly sold out of it.
There is a way you might still be able to get the promotional set though! I see based on your address you do have a local LEGO® Brand Retail store close by. I will provide the address and phone number to you so you might be able to give them a call and see if they have one in stock.
So that brings us to the question of did LEGO underestimate the amount of orders they are going to get? To take it a step further, was it a mistake of making the AT-DP available free for any LEGO Star Wars purchase? With that stipulation, any Star Wars purchase would have qualified you to get the polybag including keychains which was a cheap way to get it. Would have it been better if it was available for purchases for $75 or $99 for that matter? Since many people were ordering the new UCS Slave I (75060, it would have probably reduced the number AT-DP polybags that were going out with smaller orders that didn’t reach the purchase threshold and the amount available possibly could have been better rationed out.
As of this writing, the Friends Mini Golf polybag is still available. If you’re desperate to get either the Flower Cart and AT-DP polybags, there’s still BrickLink or eBay out there but beware that they will probably be at pretty expensive prices and wouldn’t be worth it by then. Were you guys able to pick up at least one of the three polybags before they were sold out?
If you made a LEGO Star Wars purchase at the LEGO Store or on Shop@Home, you would have received one of the new LEGO Star Wars Rebels polybags for 2015, the 65-piece AT-DP (30274).
If you’re not familiar with the All Terrain Defense Pod, that is because it is a fairly new Imperial walker that’s mostly been seen so far in the Star Wars Rebels animated series. It is a variant of the AT-ST and has a armored head with a single laser cannon that is mounted in the lower front area. They are deployed to check out areas that have suspected Rebel activity.
Although the AT-DP is a smaller version, it does have a similiar look as its larger counterpart with set 75083. Note that it does not come with a minifigure but I’ve displayed one next to the AT-DP to show a size comparison.
Overall, the AT-DP (30274) is good for what you get, if you can get it. I’m hearing reports that Shop@Home is no longer offering the polybag even if you have a Star Wars set in your shopping cart. I’m not sure if they ran out online or if LEGO is still having issues with their website. As far as I know, LEGO Brand Stores are still handing these out but you may want to make your purchases earlier in the month and not wait because they will eventually run out as well.
LEGO Customer Services has updated their database and a lot of the instructions for the 2015 sets and also included were all this year’s polybags that will be available. Instead of doing separate posts for all of them, here’s a round-up of what you can expect to hit stores later this year. Some of them have already shown up at retailers as well as LEGO promos but I’ll add them here since they are part of the 2015 LEGO polybag lineup. If they are already available, I’ll add a note specifying how to obtain it. The only one that is missing an image is the LEGO DUPLO Snail (30218).
Note: These are only polybags with set 30xxx and does not include promotional minifigure polybags or ones that have set number 4xxxx.
