So far this offer is only being run in the US. However, it is highly likely that other LEGO regions will get in on this minifig GWP too.
With the next LEGO Star Wars drop – due at the start of January – including a whole slew of Prequel, Original and Sequel Trilogy sets, it isn’t going to be hard to achieve!
Making its first appearance on eBay and other secondary market sources like Bricklink* in July, this re-released version of the 1999 original is the same as the series of five collectible 20th anniversary minifigures that came packed in with the 20th Anniversary edition sets which were released in May, 2019. Whether you want to include 75222 Droid Commander polybag set, the miniaturised rendition of 75253 Boost Droid Commander, is up to you.
* Having long been the go-to place for LEGO items that are purposefully being given limited distribution by LEGO – such as gift with purchase or convention exclusives – Bricklink has just been purchased by LEGO in an attempt to “get closer to the AFOL community”, meaning they control the primary market and have a dominant stake in the secondary market.
