LEGO Not Part of Star Wars Celebration Exhibitor Shopping Selection

Last week we reported that LEGO will be having an exclusive set at Star Wars Celebration but it’s confusing on what has transpired since then. The Virtual Panel and Exhibitor Shopping lottery went up today and I noticed that LEGO wasn’t part of the list anymore.

A reader who is going gave us a snippet of their conversation with customer service and it was noted that LEGO is exhibiting but was not part of the lottery exclusives. The wording of the description has also removed LEGO from the list which went up last week.

If you saw last week, another reader was able to get into some lottery for the LEGO BrickHeadz Obi-Wan Kenobi & Darth Vader (40547) when everything badges went live so I’m not really sure what’s going on there. I’m not going to Star Wars Celebration but if you can still see the BrickHeadz lottery, let us know. Was the LEGO lottery different than today’s lottery? It supposedly ends on May 20 at 12am CDT.
