The Toys R Us website hasn’t been updated yet but there will be a LEGO Star Wars May the 4th building event on May 6 from 12-2pm. There’s no word yet on what the build will be but hopefullyl we’ll get to see something before the event actually starts. If you are attending, remember to get there early as these events are very popular.
Toys R Us Hong Kong has posted the official images of the LEGO Star Wars Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive (75191). The set has four minifigures including R4-P17, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Boba Fett, and Jango Fett. I assume the build is based on the Episode II: Attack of the Clones where Obi-Wan is going to Kamino where he discovers the Clone Army. I’ve been told the set will go for about $129.99 but we’ll see.
Help Obi-Wan keep one step ahead of Jango Fett in his Jedi Starfighter! Dock with the hyperdrive, grab the handle and warp to distant planets in no time. Add some firepower with the stud shooters and spring-loaded shooters, then pull the trigger to release the ship. Will Jango be able to track you down? That’s for you to decide…

Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 is now over and for those who were able to get the exclusive LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue, they are some lucky individuals. Fans have been waiting patiently for the instructions to come out and it looks like BrickFinder was able to find someone who posted them.
The full building instructions have been generously uploaded to Google Drive which you can download a copy and it looks like there are no exclusive parts to the set so if you have all the parts, you can easily build your own sans the limited edition box. If you prefer to have the whole thing, eBay is the way to go and the price for it has been slowly dropping and you can get for less than $200 now. It’s not chump change but for collectors, it’s another thing to pick up.
Amazon currently has the LEGO Star Wars StarScavenger (75147) from The Freemaker Adventures on sale for $26.92 which is 46% off the retail price of $49.99. The four minifigures included with this set are exclusive and three of them will still be exclusive when the Summer 2017 Freemaker Adventures sets come out in a few months.
I’ve done a review of this set last year and it does have some nice play features that kids may enjoy.
Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 has kicked off and if you’re not there, you probably have no chance to get the exclusive LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue set that is being sold there. However, LEGO is giving everyone a chance to win one via Twitter. All you have to do is retweet them and you are entered. There will be a total of 20 sets given away during the whole SWCO so it looks like five sets will be given out per day. Many will enter, few will win.
It was just only a few weeks ago when the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Series Snowspeeder (75144) was officially announced but we’ve managed to get a hold of the set, courtesy of LEGO, and we’re happy to bring you this review of the set. Coming in at 1,703 pieces, the UCS Snowspeeder will retail for $199.99 and will be available starting April 29 for LEGO VIP early access and on May 4 for the general public. The contents of the box include 13 numbered bags, a loose 8×16 plate, a black 8×16 flat tile, and the instruction booklet packaged with the sticker sheet.
