Last Tuesday, we reported the debut of the next LEGO Star Wars collectible minifigure hailing from the latest episode of the Star Wars saga. Originally discovered via LEGO fan forums, this newest LEGO Star Wars collectible joins the ranks of the LEGO Star Wars R3-M2 (40268) and Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigures that are tied-in with The Force Awakens and Rogue One respectively. Similarly, the LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi DJ (40298) minifigure is also expected to be the next gift with purchase freebie via shop.LEGO.com.
Initially, we speculated that this LEGO Star Wars DJ minifigure will be made available once May the 4th seasonal promotions go live. But as it seems, we might be receiving this collectible freebie earlier than expected. According to LEGO German fan site Zusammengebaut, we can expect to have the DJ minifigure as early as next month, January 1 to be exact. The caveat though, is that it will only be applied to purchases that are made via LEGO’s Shop@Home. This is quite unusual though, since most of LEGO’s promotional freebies are both usually offered online and in-store. We will continue to verify this, and we’ll let you know once more information comes in.
