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.

Participation in this process is REQUIRED in order to win a priority ticket with a reserved time to visit the LEGO booth at Star Wars Celebration Orlando. The lottery process will close at 12:01 AM EST on April 6. All winners will be notified by April 7 of the date and time that they can line up at the LEGO booth.
