LEGO Star Wars Celebration 2019 Darth Vader Bust (75227) Update

0

A majority of us were waiting for the release of the LEGO Star Wars Celebration 2019 Darth Vader Bust (75227) on Target today but it never happened and we were left scratching our heads on when it would drop. I’ve had a ton of messages today asking when but I didn’t have any answers until now. According to Rebelscum, the set has been delayed until Monday, April 15 but no specific time was mentioned. It will still be a Target REDcard exclusive so you still have some time to sign up if you don’t have it yet.

The set seems to be a very hot commodity early on as it is going for well over $100+ on the secondary market. I’ll try to do a post when it becomes available next week but if I don’t have time, make sure to follow my Facebook or Twitter as I will definitely post on there.

BACKGROUND
The collaboration between the companies began 20 years ago when 13 LEGO Star Wars sets were introduced at the American International Toy Fair in New York in 1999. The line of licensed construction toys was the LEGO Group’s first licensed property and has since remained one of the company’s most popular, allowing fans across generations and geographies to come together in fun and challenging building exercises. Since the launch, over 700 different sets and more than 1,000 LEGO Star Wars cobranded minifigures have hit shelves. Notable LEGO Star Wars milestones include, the first modeled minifigure headpiece being introduced in 1999 with the Jar Jar Binks minifigure, while new short leg molds introduced in 2002 brought Ewoks and Yoda to life in minifigure form. Beyond construction sets, the collaboration has also produced five video games, several television and web series, and an abundance of other merchandise based on the endless stories, characters and vehicles of the beloved galaxy.
