If you recall from September last year, LEGO released the LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander (75522) as an exclusive gift-with-purchase (GWP) set for those who will be getting its much larger (and motorized) cousin, the LEGO Star Wars Boost Droid Commander (75253). Though LEGO was kind enough to publish the building instructions for this promotional item, this GWP had a relatively short life span, offered only between September 9-15, 2019.
In case you missed out on this promotional, you’ll be glad to know that it is made available again as a redeemable reward at the LEGO VIP Rewards Center.
Unlike the first time it was offered, you can now get this directly without making any particular purchases. Just be sure that you have enough VIP points (1,350 points) to redeem this exclusive. There is no particular promo period mentioned at the Rewards Center, but just be sure to get it quickly since these kinds of offers tend to run out pretty quickly.
The LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander comes in at 62 pieces and features a micr0scaled version of a Gonk and Mouse Droid, plus an R2-D2 minifigure. It is further accentuated by a commemorative LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary 2×4 plate found only in two other promotional sets: the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth (40333) and Battle of Endor (40362) 20th Anniversary sets. On the other hand, the LEGO Star Wars Boost Droid Commander (75253) is available at LEGO Shop@Home. It comes in at 1,177 pieces and retails for $199.99.
