Still time to take off with retired LEGO Galaxy Explorer

Blast on over to Walmart right now and you’ll still be able to pick up the long-since retired LEGO Icons 10497 Galaxy Explorer.

When it comes to saving you cash on your LEGO set purchases, Walmart has you covered. In addition to discounts on all kinds of must-have sets, the retailer is also the place to head to if you’re ever looking for hard-to-find and long-since retired models.

A case in point is 10497 Galaxy Explorer, with the LEGO Icons build still in stock at Walmart and priced at $100. The 1,254-piece set has already been retired, so may not be available for too much longer, meaning you’ll need to be quick if you want to pick up the model before it’s gone for good.

Released in 2022 to celebrate the LEGO Group’s then 90th anniversary, 10497 Galaxy Explorer is a reimagining of the Classic 497 LEGO Galaxy Explorer. The ship features the blended delta wing configuration of the original craft, as well as three retractable landing legs, opening rear doors, a retractable ramp and a rover vehicle. In addition, the LEGO Icons model also comes with four astronaut minifigures and a brick-built robot helper.

There’s no way of knowing how long 10497 Galaxy Explorer will remain in stock at Walmart, so be sure to head to the retailer’s site now to secure your copy of the LEGO Icons set. Standard delivery within the US is free for this model or you can always pick up your order from your local Walmart store
