Just wanted to bring to your attention that although the Star Wars Day specials that ran at the beginning of the month are over, there are a couple of LEGO Star Wars sets still offered with Double VIP Points. The two sets are the #75242 LEGO Star Wars Black Ace TIE Interceptor, and the #75259 LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Edition Snowspeeder – both recently released LEGO Star Wars sets. They are available with Double VIP Points until the end of the month. 🙂

The #75242 LEGO Star Wars Black Ace TIE Interceptor is from the Star Wars Resistance TV show. It features an opening cockpit to sit ace pilot Griff Halloran, two spring-loaded shooters on the wingtips, and a removable panel at the back to store a spare missile. The included minifigs are Griff Halloran and Poe Dameron, plus there is also a BB-8 droid. The TIE Interceptor measures over 3” (8cm) high, 14” (36cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide. 396 pieces. Price: $49.99 – BUY HERE

The #75259 LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Edition Snowspeeder is one of the recently released 20th anniversary sets. It is an updated version of the original #7130 LEGO Star Wars Snowspeeder model released in 1999, and features an opening cockpit with space for the Luke Skywalker and Dak Ralter in pilot suits, laser cannons, a spring-loaded shooter under each wing, plus a stud shooter and harpoon with string at the rear. There is also an elevating and rotating gun tower with stud-shooter for epic Battle of Hoth action from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, plus a bonus Lando Calrissian minifigure from 2003 on a 20th anniversary display stand. The four minifigs are Luke Skywalker and Dak Ralter in their pilot outfits, a Rebel Trooper, and a bonus anniversary Lando Calrissian. The LEGO Star Wars 20th anniversary minifigure display stand can connect to the other display stands in the 20th anniversary collection. The Snowspeeder model measures over 1” (5cm) high, 7” (18cm) long and 5” (14cm) wide, and the gun tower measures over 3” (8cm) high, 2” (6cm) wide and 2” (6cm) deep. 309 pieces. Price: $39.99 – BUY HERE

The other 20th anniversary sets include the #75243 LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Slave I, the #75258 LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Anakin’s Podracer, the #75261 LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Clone Scout Walker, and the #75262 LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Imperial Dropship. We have talked about the sets in detail here, and if you want to check them out, they are available at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Also, don’t forget about the newly released #75244 LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV! Although the Double VIP Points period for this set is now over, it is still the newest large LEGO Star Wars set, with an updated version of the #10198 LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV from 2009.

Good to know! Thanks! I’m thinking that we will collect the whole 20th anniversary series as my kids missed out on many of the classic sets. They are that age when Star Wars is really starting to grow on them.

Oh, cool! I was planning to get them anyway but didn’t have enough money at the beginning of the month. So this will run until the end of the month?

Yes, the promotion is running until the end of May.

I know they made it many times, but the snowspeeder is pretty cool. I could use a few of those. My other favorite is the Slave I. Are we going to get any larger 20th anniversary sets?

Not sure about a larger 20th anniversary set. I haven’t heard anything.

Off topic, but Lego has been teasing about a Stranger Things set. Admin, do you know when this is going to be announced?

Actually had some interesting takeaways from May the 4th… did you notice VERY few sets even sold out and virtually none were on backorder? New sets clearly didn’t have the same traction as years past… Compared to where sets would be gone in hours…. so this leads me to believe, customers are overall; less excited about set designs (are they rushed? Are they lacking detail? Are they not tired? Price increases? Etc)

Yes, Lego is expensive yet the economy is overall considered, good. Thinking most would agree there were some big misses this year with Star Wars sets (why even on many?), no special minifig again and well to be candid there is a lot of fans simply in limbo with the direction star wars has been taken with films as of late… any thoughts?

Jason, those are all possibilities. LEGO fans fatigued by all the same Star Wars sets and people being fatigued with Star Wars in general. One thing I would like to add is that LEGO has been diligently working on making their online stock availability better, so sets don’t go out of stock/backordered as much as they used to. They no longer announce specials at the beginning of the month, they release new sets in a more gradual way instead of all at once, they allow pre-orders, etc. The idea is that customers should run into the out of stock and backordered notice less and less. I think that’s a good direction.
