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

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.
