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…)

I was visiting some family in New Orleans this past weekend when I got word that the FN-2187 Stormtrooper POP! was on shelves. I had to go out and buy some things we forgot so I decided to head to the nearest Target. When I was there I was surprised to find not one, but six on the shelf. The reason all six were still on the shelve was every box looked like it was stepped on. (more…)
There are plenty of customs out there but now we get an official FN-2187 Stormtrooper POP! Funko had a live stream Periscope a few days back featuring this month’s Smuggler’s Bounty subscription box. They also revealed the upcoming Target Exclusive FN-2187 POP! We are not sure when to expect these on shelves, but we are guessing sooner, rather than later.
