If you still remember back in May, we reported on two LEGO Star Wars collectible minifigures that were released back then as a promotional in connection to the release of the Star Wars Han Solo film. Following the likes of other collectible minifigures that were launched together with previous Star Wars films, the LEGO Star Wars Kessel Mine Worker (40299) and a version of Solo in disguise as a Mimban Mudtrooper or the LEGO Star Wars Han Solo Mudtrooper (40300), are now next in line as the theme’s promotional CMF. We also noted back then that these were supposed to be Toys R Us-related freebies, but since TRU’s closure and unfortunate demise, we were left hanging on when and where these minifigs will arrive in the US. It also seems that Europe has the better end of these promotional deals since the sighting of Han Solo Mudtrooper (40300) in the LEGOLAND Store in Germany.
But thanks to the recently released LEGO Store October 2018 store calendar, we now know for sure that the Han Solo Mudtrooper (40300) collectible minifigure will now land in LEGO Stores in the US and at shop.LEGO.com this October.
From October 1 to 14, any purchase of LEGO Star Wars sets worth $35 and above will entitle you to this free collectible Han Solo Mudtrooper minifig. This offer is valid only during the dates mentioned above or while supplies last. This particular collectible joins the ranks of other previous Star Wars collectible minifigures such as DJ (40298) from The Last Jedi, the Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) and R3-M2 (40268) both from Rogue One.
