LEGO Star Wars 75337 AT-TE Walker sells for almost $600 following delays in US

LEGO Star Wars 75337 AT-TE Walker is definitely delayed in the US – leading to at least one in-hand copy selling for a blistering $600 in the US.

The LEGO Group confirmed in July that the highly-anticipated walker – which includes the first-ever Phase II Commander Cody minifigure – has been delayed from its planned August 1 launch due to ‘delivery challenges’. A new release date has yet to be revealed (although the LEGO Group expects the delay to last ‘a few weeks’), but it’s already led to eye-watering aftermarket prices for the 1,082-piece set.

Most copies of 75337 AT-TE Walker on eBay.com at the moment are pre-orders above RRP, and some seem to (somehow) be selling for up to $249.99, even while the set will be available for just $139.99 once released. But one eBay user actually had an early copy of the LEGO Star Wars set in hand, having picked it up while travelling in Europe – and has since managed to fetch $590 for it on the auction platform.

That’s following a fierce bidding war, which started out at just $143 – or only $3 above 75337 AT-TE Walker’s retail price. This is effectively market forces at play, then, but it’s only as a result of the set’s current unavailability through regular channels in the US. As of August 1, it’s still listed as ‘Coming soon’ at LEGO.com, but the LEGO Group says a new release date will be announced on the product page as soon as possible.

Whenever that does happen, it’s likely that demand will be through the roof, and 75337 AT-TE Walker will sell out almost immediately (which may explain those above-RRP eBay pre-orders). It’s already on back order in the UK and Europe, for instance, where the LEGO Group says it will currently ship by August 11.

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.
