Score a free Princess Leia minifigure in latest LEGO Star Wars magazine

The latest issue of the LEGO Star Wars magazine is now on shelves in the UK, and includes a free Princess Leia minifigure previously available in only two sets.

This most recent iteration of the good princess – as seen in her white dress in Star Wars: A New Hope – first appeared in 2019’s 75244 Tantive IV, and is currently available in 75301 Luke Skywalker’s X-wing Fighter. Issue 89 of the LEGO Star Wars magazine offers a much cheaper and easier way to add her to your collection, however, with a price tag of just £4.25 in the UK.

Leia is currently averaging £8.45 used and £10.08 new on BrickLink, while the cheapest example in the UK starts at £6. Factor in shipping, and the LEGO Star Wars magazine becomes an even better deal. Issue 89 is available now at supermarkets, newsagents and all good magazine stockists – at least where they haven’t already all been snapped up.

LEGO Star Wars magazine Issue 89 cover

As well as the foil-bagged minifigure on the cover (the LEGO Star Wars mag has yet to follow the NINJAGO mag’s lead in switching to paper bags), Issue 89 packs in the usual mix of comics, activities and posters for younger LEGO Star Wars fans. For most of us, though, it’ll be straight in the recycling with the actual magazine (unless you know someone in the target demo to pass it to, sans minifigure.)

The next issue includes another mini model of a summer 2021 set, following Issue 87‘s microscale 75316 Mandalorian Starfighter. The ship getting the shrink-ray treatment in Issue 90 is 75315 Imperial Light Cruiser, so last month’s TIE Whisper and this month’s Princess Leia are basically only temporary detours on the mag’s multi-month Mandalorian journey.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
