Excitement is slowly mounting as we get closer to this year’s May the 4th sales and promotion, and with a handful of 2017 LEGO Star Wars summer sets ready to take flight, and vivid descriptions of each, the Force is undeniably strong with these sets, particularly in the Asian region. If you’re in Hong Kong right now, or is about to travel to LEGOLAND Malaysia by next week, or will be staying in Singapore, then it will be a sure win to take advantage of their exclusive LEGO Star Wars pre-launch offerings.
Rebel Scum reports that Toys R Us Hong Kong will be having an exclusive pre-launch of the latest LEGO Star Wars sets and is now currently accepting pre-orders via their website. LEGO fans on this side of Asia will be receiving these sets on May 6, almost a month ahead as compared to the rest of the world on June 1.
LEGO Certified Stores in Singapore and LEGOLAND Malaysia will also offer these sets ahead, with the latter gearing up for their own version of Star Wars Celebration. Brick Finder was fortunate enough to be invited by LEGO’s regional office in Malaysia and was given a taste of things to come during their press briefing. The best part of it, the following sets may be enjoyed by fans as early as Labor Day next week on May 1. The Force is clearly strong in Asia. Thanks to Brick Finder for providing the local retail prices for each of these sets. I’ve included their prices in USD for comparison.
