LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268) Polybag Review

LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268)

Way back in January, it was revealed that there was a new LEGO Star Wars polybag with R3-M2 (40268). It had a little stand with a backing that is different from your standard minifigure polybags. There was little to no detail on its availability except for it showing up at LEGOLAND California back in March and a recently showing up at Toys R Us.

I was able to purchase it for $5.99 online before the page was taken down. It was also reported that they can be found in store but they do have a street date of August 26. You may get lucky and be able to purchase it but there’s a high chance that you won’t be able to purchase until then.

Minifigure

R3-M2 is a very obscure astromech droid that has only appeared shortly in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The body has your typical LEGO droid pattern with the main notable differences being the large bold stripes as well as the brown and tan coloring. The back of the torso and both legs have no printing at all however according to the one in The Disney Collection 2016 Droid Factory 4-Pack, R3-M2 is supposed to have a brown stripe going down the back. The dome is trans-black with a silver ring at the base with some brown panels throughout.

The LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268) polybag is currently available for purchase at Toys R Us for $5.99 each. I’ve also been told that they have started showing up in stores but they do have a street date of August 26. Your mileage may vary at your particular store. I’m assuming there will be a promotion going on for them the week after. The item number for it is 814240.

Thanks to everyone who emailed in about it.

LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268)

For those who have been waiting for news on how to get the new LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268) polybag, I finally have some news on it. LEGOLAND California now has it as part of a promotion where you can get it for free with a purchase of $55 or more in Star Wars products at the Big Shop or Empire Emporium, while supplies last. This promotion runs until March 19. There’s still no word on when LEGO [email protected] will have it, if it will.

Thanks to my friend John as well as Becca for the information.

LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268) Polybag Found

LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268)

It looks like 2017 is the year of the astromech droids as far as LEGO Star Wars polybags are concerned. There has been a new R3-M2 (40268) polybag that’s the traditional minifigure version that’s been found in a Romanian monobrand store. Upon some research, R3-M2 is from Rogue One.

If you look closely, you can see that it’s on it’s own stand and has a plaque card on the back with the name tag appearing to be a sticker. There’s even a Technic pin on the side of the stand that suggests there could be more polybags like this in the future.

I have a feeling that the R3-M2 (40268) will be this year’s May the 4th polybag promotion.
