Exactly a month ago, we had our first look at one of LEGO’s closely guarded secrets from the LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi theme. There were mixed reactions when the first images of the LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) started to came in, ranging from absolutely adorable to downright horrific, this avian inspired build is perhaps the most polarized LEGO Star Wars set probably next to the Assault on Hoth (75098) UCS set released in 2016. Regardless if you find yourself spending your hard-earned cash for the LEGO Star Wars Porg, or would rather turn your eyes and walk away from it, we still don’t have information on its exact release date until today. Thanks once again to LEGO Store Budapest, we now have information on when the LEGO Star Wars Porg will most likely be released. If you recall, the LEGO Store in Budapest was also at the front lines in announcing the release date of the LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262) set last July. As announced over at their website, the LEGO Store Budapest will be accepting pre-orders for the LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) beginning October 1.
The Budapest LEGO Store will accept pre-orders via its website until September 28 or until supplies last. Furthermore, the site also mentions that the LEGO Star Wars Porg will be released to the public on October 8 which will likely be the same with other LEGO brand stores globally and at shop.LEGO.com. If this is the case, then we can expect an official press release from LEGO any time soon. The LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) is said to come in at 811 pieces and will retail in the US for $69.99. Stay tuned for more updates. Image credit to the LEGO Store Budapest for the LEGO Star Wars Porg photos above.
