The landing page for the highly-anticipated set – which is the first to feature a Phase 2 Commander Cody minifigure – changed from ‘Coming soon on August 1’ to simply ‘Coming soon’ in the US last week, suggesting that it may have been delayed from its initial launch date.
In a statement shared on the LEGO Ambassador Network, the LEGO Group has now confirmed that 75337 AT-TE Walker will not debut in North America on August 1 alongside the rest of the summer wave, owing to ‘some delivery challenges’. At the moment, expectations are that the set will be delayed ‘by a few weeks’.
A more precise date has not been shared at the time of writing, but the LEGO Group says it will update the set’s landing page at LEGO.com as soon as it has a firm release date for the Revenge of the Sith walker.
That’s bad news for stateside fans eager to get their hands on Commander Cody and the rest of the set’s Clone Troopers and Battle Droids, but take solace: 75337 AT-TE Walker will arrive eventually, and in the meantime there are still plenty of other sets to pick up in August, including 75336 Inquisitor Transport Scythe and 75333 Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Jedi Starfighter.
