The midi-scale model popped up at LEGO.com at roughly 5am GMT, with a limit of three sets per customer. However, eager shoppers snapped up seemingly all available stock within a matter of hours. The set apparently switched between out of stock and available to order throughout the night, and is now listed as “Sold Out”.
77904 Nebulon-B Frigate also appeared at Amazon in the US at around 1am GMT, before almost instantly selling out. It then came back to Amazon at roughly 8am, but is now once again listed as “currently unavailable”. Given it’s already returned once before, though, it’s also worth keeping an eye on Amazon just in case it comes back again.
This isn’t the first time the online retailer has listed the rebel cruiser, either: it originally sold around 1,000 copies back in October. It’s also turned up at LEGOLAND Discovery Centres across the US, so you might have a little more luck grabbing one in person.
The LEGO Group originally designed the set for San Diego Comic-Con 2020. However, the event’s cancellation means the company has had to turn to alternative means of distribution. Unfortunately for global fans, that distribution remains US-only.
The first-ever LEGO model of the frigate (outside of an Advent Calendar) uses 459 pieces, while the box features the special logo for the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back.
