The sought-after Mando set has spent most of its life off shelves both real and virtual – partly because LEGO Stores in the UK have been forcibly closed under national lockdown rules, but also because the LEGO Group just can’t keep up with demand.
That means on any given visit to LEGO.com over the past few months, you’re more likely than not to have found 75292 The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport listed as ‘temporarily out of stock’, unable to even be back ordered for delivery in some uncertain future.
Not so at the moment, though, because as we type, the set formerly known as 75292 The Razor Crest is available to buy once again. These windows don’t come around often, and when they do, they’re briefer than a Darksaber fight with Moff Gideon – so if you’re in the market for the 1,023-piece set, make sure you act quickly to secure your copy.
Time is now doubly of the essence, too, because 75292 The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport is expected to retire at the end of 2021, just 15 months after taking flight. If it does bow out comparatively prematurely, it will effectively be the same unceremonious end that met the on-screen version in The Mandalorian Season 2. It’s like poetry.
If Mando, Grogu, IG-11 and co. have once again vanished from LEGO.com by the time you read this, no need to chart a course through hyperspace to find them again: just sign up to our stock alerts and we’ll email you when they return.
