The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special looks great

Here is the first trailer for the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special.

Inspired by the original Star Wars Holiday Special, this new special event movie sees the sequel trilogy characters return to celebrate Life Day.

“The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special” reunites Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose and the droids for a joyous feast on Life Day. Rey sets off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan and other iconic heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films. But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?

The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is streaming Nov. 17 on Disney+.

The Child Buying Guide

Firstly – if you are in law enforcement and have come across this article please note that I am specifically talking about 75318 The Child, a $119.99 LEGO set. Don’t buy real children.

75318_front_01

Now, with that out of the way lets discuss 75318 The Child. This cute little thing was officially released today to coincide with the return of The Mandalorian. And you want to buy one right? Well it looks like you won’t be able to get one from LEGO directly just yet. The set seemingly went straight from Coming Soon to Temporarily out of stock. I don’t know if there was a point in the middle there where it was actually available. If you want to keep an eye on the product page you can find it here. This is a tempting option with the Han Solo keyring promo.

If you don’t care about bonuses and just want the best raw price then Kmart has this set listed for $99, which is $20 below RRP.

Slightly more expensive is Big W at $119.

If you happen to live close to a store then the various certified stores and LLDC should have stock of this set at RRP but it’s probably best to call ahead if possible.

Target, Amazon, David Jones and Myer do not as yet have listings for this but I’ll keep checking.

 

Razor Crest Available From Amazon Australia

Been hanging out for the Mandalorian’s awesome Razor Crest? Well you may be interested to know that it is now available to purchase from Amazon Australia – and slightly below RRP too!

The set can be yours for $172.22 instead of the RRP price of $199.99
