We all know that each wave of sets is going to be landing on shelves, but there is a particular degree of excitement when someone finds the sets ahead of the scheduled release. If the finder is lucky they might even walk out with the sets in hand.
A couple of fans have shared images of their finds which officially kicks off the January wave. Marcel was able to find both 75320 Hoth Battle Pack and 75322 Hoth AT-ST on shelves last week in Germany while Christopher picked up the battle pack and 75321 The Razor Crest Microfighter a couple of days ago from MasterMind Toys in Canada.
Other countries are likely to follow suit in the coming days. If you don’t want to venture out to the stores over the holidays or can’t find the sets early, there is always the option of waiting until January 1st and buying them directly from LEGO. Prices for all three sets are below.
- 75320 Hoth Battle Pack
- 75321 The Razor Crest Microfighter
- 75322 Hoth AT-ST
Aside from the two new accessory packs, none of the known January sets are exclusive to LEGO and should be available at Walmart, Amazon.com, Target (United States), Costco, Toys R Us (Canada), Argos, Smyths Toys (United Kingdom), Zavvi, Smyths Toys (Germany), Target (Australia), BigW, Kmart and Toys R Us (Australia).
