Surprise: the 6,785-piece walker comes straight in at first place, pushing down 71040 The Disney Castle, which temporarily took top spot from the sold-out 75192 Millennium Falcon. And as you can read in our written review or watch in our video review, this isn’t just recency bias at play: 75313 AT-AT thoroughly deserves the crown for the sheer feat of engineering that it represents.
It’s also one of the few major 2021 releases that’s actually still available to order in the UK, even if it is currently on back order. 10294 Titanic will sail straight in if and when it returns to LEGO.com, for instance, while 71043 Hogwarts Castle, 75192 Millennium Falcon, 75978 Diagon Alley, 21318 Tree House and 75308 R2-D2 would all usually make the cut.
If you’re after any one of those sets at the moment, sign up to our stock alerts and we’ll let you know when they’re back. For now, you can still place your order for 75313 AT-AT in the UK and Europe – but it’s sold out until ‘after the holidays’ in the US, so get yourself on our mailing list if you missed out on Black Friday.
