LEGO Star Wars 75227 Darth Vader Bust was recently announced as launching at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. The set is due to be a shared exclusive between the event and Target stores in the USA. While those not attending the official Star Wars event may look on in envy at fans who are, anyone who has been to one of these conventions knows that holding a ticket gives little chance of getting the exclusive set.
Star Wars Celebration Chicago attendees can enter an online lottery that will give them a chance of being able to buy the set. Tomorrow – Tuesday, March 26 – the lottery for exclusive items will open. Fans can then enter the lottery, which will be drawn at random. In previous years, lottery winners were given a specific timeslot to go and buy their exclusive.
As for Target, customers will need to be REDcard holders and very snappy. The LEGO Movie 2 BrickHeadz sold out in no time, so presumably the same thing will happen with LEGO Star Wars 75227 Darth Vader Bust.
There is of course the third option – head to eBay after the set has gone on sale.
