Detention Block Rescue

LEGO Exclusive For Star Wars Celebration 2017 Revealed

When LEGO makes an exclusive for an event, it’s kind of a big deal.  Most of their SDCC and other exclusives fetch multiple times their purchase price on the secondary market.  This set looks to be no exception.  Based on the classic scene in A New Hope, Detention Block Rescue features Han Solo and Luke Skywalker disguised as Stormtroopers, attempting the daring rescue in the prison ward of the Death Star.

The set contains 220 pieces and will retail for $40, however it can only be obtained if you’re attending Star Wars Celebration and are selected to purchase via lottery.

There are limited quantities available, so LEGO will be highly selective with the lottery. (more…)
