Exclusive Target LEGO Star Wars Micro Millennium Falcon Polybag Now Available – Sold Out in Some Areas.

Since the launch of this year’s Target Toy Book a few weeks ago, some leery eyed collectors were closely eyeing on a relatively, unappealing piece of promotion, or so as we thought. For a minimum purchase of any LEGO Star Wars products worth $30 and above at any Target stores starting today and throughout the whole week, entitles you to a free LEGO Star Wars Micro Millennium Falcon Polybag. Alternately, you may also opt to purchase this polybag separately for $4.99.

The polybag promo comes with 20 LEGO grey pieces including a clear bar piece and a printed minifigure stand. If not for the printed plate and bar, I guess this one will be sitting on store shelves for a long, long, time. However, what happened next is quite the contrary. We’ve received reports that the said Micro MF polybags are now sold-out in some Target stores.

Apparently, the polybag was a hit for more unconventional reasons. LEGO Star Wars minifig collectors may have struck gold with these minifigure baseplates – a good way to flaunt their prized collection. However for a price point of $5 per polybag for a single LEGO piece, I think it is too much of a haul for me.


Well, I guess even LEGO collectors have different tastes and preferences. I just hope that this poly will not suffer the same fate as that of its way larger sibling, the UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). Be sure to check out with your local Target store first if they still have the LEGO Star Wars Micro Millennium Falcon polybag (DPCI# 204-00-0266) lying around in the LEGO section. Thanks to FBTB for sharing these images.

More 2018 LEGO Star Wars Set Names and Images Surfaced.

After the reveal of the Sandspeeder (75204) and the Target limited edition LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Rey and Kylo (41489), we now have several images coming in that gives us a glimpse at other LEGO Star Wars sets included in this wave. Slated to be released in January next year, we have what it seems 13 new sets, 4 of which have images that are already circulating the Internet since two days ago via Reddit. Check these out.

Microfighters: Millenium Falcon (75193)

Microfighters: First Order TIE Fighter (75194)

 Tatooine Battle Pack  (75198)

 

 

 General Grievous’ Combat Speeder (75199)

 

Other LEGO Star Wars sets that are said to be a part of the January 2018 release are as follows:

Microfighters 

No mention of what minifigures are included in these sets as of this posting.

  • Ski Speeder vs. First Order Walker (75195)
  • A-Wing vs. TIE Silencer (75196)
Battle Packs

First Order Specialists Battle Pack (75197) – I assume that this set will include a selection of never before seen First Order troopers, both from The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi not far away from what LEGO released last year with the First Order Battle Pack (75132) and First Order Transport Speeder Battle Pack (75166). Set 75197 is said to include 3 to 5 First Order Troopers.

Regular Sets

Ahch-To Island Training (75200) – if this is indeed an official LEGO set, then we might finally have an old man Luke minifigure that LEGO has been hinting on for quite some time already. Tyler also previously created a MOC around this scene, so be sure to check it out.

????? (75201) – described as a diorama looking set, I guess it has something to do with the set depicting a particular background similar to that of the Battle on Takodana (75139) and Battle on Scarif (75171) sets. 75201 is said to feature a redesigned Captain Phasma, and First Order disguised Finn and Rose. Images of these minifigures have been circulating via Instagram so its just a matter of clicks before you can find them.

Defense/Battle on Crait (75202) – similar to 75201, this set may also feature a diorama-like, outside battle scene but this time, on the crimson red sands of the planet Crait.  If our predictions are correct, then this set might include the long overdue Resistance Skimmer that we are waiting to see. Tyler made a custom LEGO Resistance Skimmer MOC a few months ago, so it’s kind of interesting to see how the official LEGO set will turn out. The set includes four minifigures: Poe Dameron, Two Resistance Soldiers, and one mystery minifig.

Buildable Figures 

We’re not sure if these are all rehash or re-releases, but most likely it could be the former.

  • Boba Fett (75533)
  • Darth Vader (75534)

We’ll keep our radar open for more LEGO Star Wars news and updates so be sure to stick around.

 

5 LEGO Sets Named as Finalists for 2018’s Toy of the Year Awards.

It has been customary for the Toy Industry Association Inc. to recognize certain toy manufacturers for their outstanding contribution to the toy industry, and LEGO is one of the industry leaders that have a legacy of being recognized time and again as a Toy of the Year (TOTY) awardee. Last year, we saw LEGO bagging not just one, but two awards with the beautiful and mechanically impressive LEGO Friends and Amusement Park Roller Coaster (41130) earning the title of Construction Toy of the Year Award, while the grand LEGO Disney Castle (71040) received the Specialty Toy of the Year.

As it seems, it looks like LEGO has earned a greater chance of bagging the same title again. Earlier this week, online voting for this year’s TOTY has officially begun, and LEGO once more dominated the nominees’ list with five sets under various categories. Nominated for Collectible of the Year, we have the LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures (71017). For Construction Toy of the Year it is everybody’s favorite droid in brick form, LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (75187) and Captain Salazar’s dreaded ghost ship, the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) that has made it to the cut of being qualified as nominees. The still elusive, and hard-to-find, LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) also made it as a nominee for Specialty Toy of the Year, and the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101) was named as a candidate for Tech Toy of the Year.

It should be noted that a LEGO-compatible product also made it to the roster of TOTY finalists with the Mayka Toy Block Tape by Zulu. The concept behind a LEGO-tape is relatively new and has recently caught the fancy of builders both young and old.

The voting process officially began last November 3, and will end on January 5, 2018. The voting will include not just Association members, retailers, and journalists, but also the consumers. The winners will be announced in a formal presentation ceremony on February 16, 2018. You may refer to this link for the complete set of guidelines on how the Toy of the Year finalists were selected. Consumer voting is on-going, and if you wish to show your support for these LEGO sets, then head over to the voting page for the Toy of the Year Awards.

Target Makes Surprise Return for Their Exclusive 2015 Minifigure Gift Set (5004077).

Retail store chain, Target has been remarkably full of surprises lately when it comes to their offering of LEGO products. Quite recently, one of their stores in Texas surprised buyers by not just stocking LEGO Star Wars sets that were supposed to come to the market only towards the end of this year, but actually selling them now.

And then, after treating customers to a glimpse of the future, Target is bringing back one of their exclusive minifigure gift packs from two years ago. If you happened to miss this then now’s the time to get it since Target is making available once again their 2015 LEGO Minifigure Gift Set (5004077) exclusive. This pack contains four minifigures, one from DC Comics and the other three from LEGO’s own themes: Ninjago, Legends of Chima, and good old LEGO City.

For its original price of $9.99, fans can get minifigures of Lightning Lad from DC’s Legion of Superheroes, Ninjago’s Kai (voiced by Michael Peña in The LEGO Ninjago Movie), Sir Fangar from Legends of Chima, and a generic diver from LEGO City. All but Lightning Lad have either helmets or accessories, though it features a dual printed minifigure head.

The 2015 LEGO Target Minifigure Gift Set making a comeback is but one of the numerous surprises that the store chain has been springing on LEGO buyers lately. Remember that they already have a bunch of other promos lined up throughout November as outlined in the LEGO section of their 2017 Toy Book catalog.

As of this writing, their current giveaway is the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Ornament (5004934), that goes for free with a minimum $35 purchase of any LEGO products at Target. This lasts up until November 11, when a new giveaway will take its place.
