For those who have been for the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Pod (5005376) that’s supposed to come out later this month as a promotion, I’m sorry to say that the product has been cancelled. I’ve known this information for a few days now but LEGO has released an official statement of why the promo will not be happening.
Star Wars Pod No. 5005376
We have to inform that as part of our internal quality screening process, we have found that the Star Wars Metalized Pod 5005376 does not meet our strict standards. As you know, we take the quality and safety of our products extremely seriously, and so out of an abundance of caution we have decided not to launch the Star Wars Pod.
We are committed to continuing support for our Star Wars promotion, and will offer consumers 10% off across all LEGO® Star Wars products from 18th – 24th December 2017, excluding the Millennium Falcon product (75192).
