First announced during the Official LEGO Panel at Star Wars Celebration 2019 Chicago, the consular ship that started the chain of events that lead us – in a straight line – to The Rise of Skywalker has made its first reported public appearance outside of a LEGO Brand Retail Store.
In the set’s initial period of availability, it was only available through LEGO outlets as a direct-to-customer product, but typically after three to six months, LEGO makes exclusives available to other retailers.
And now, thanks to a store report from reader Dax who saw this set on a shelf at the Target in Melbourne’sCBD, we have evidence that this period is over. At a starting price of AU$329 – which is the same as the Australian price LEGO shop@home – you can now expect to see it showing up at other retailers around the world, and eventually being included in toy sales towards the end of the year.
