Things are getting more and more exciting as we approach the much-awaited Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. Earlier, we gave you a recap on the lottery rules that LEGO will be following to determine who among the attendees will have the privilege of purchasing an exclusive, special-edition LEGO Star Wars sets. The online lottery is still on-going as of this writing and will close at 12:01AM EST on April 6. If you already registered in the lottery system, then bear in mind to strictly observe the date and time when you can visit the LEGO booth.
To jumpstart the Star Wars Celebration, LEGO has now released official images of one of its exclusives that celebrates the very first Star Wars film that started it all. This special-edition exclusive is inspired by the Detention Block AA-23 from the original 1977 film, Episode IV – A New Hope. A Star Wars Celebration exclusive, the set includes Luke Skywalker and Han Solo in Stormtrooper disguises ready to infiltrate the Death Star and rescue Princess Leia.
As a fan of vignettes, this one is definitely worth a spot in any one’s SW collection. I love how the designers of this set managed to recreate that scene in just 220 pieces.
Remember that the opportunity to purchase this exclusive is being raffled off on the Star Wars Celebration website prior to the event for attendees only, beginning now through 12:01AM EST on Thursday, April 6th. All winners will be randomly selected to purchase the exclusive on-site at the LEGO booth next week, and will be notified by April 7th.
