40609 lego christmas fun vip add on pack 1

The next LEGO themed promotional bag entitled 40609 Christmas Fun VIP Add-On Pack is now live on the official online store, this seasonal polybag will soon be offered to members of the Insiders program.

The offer allowing you to get this small polybag of 146 pieces should be offered soon under the same conditions as for other bags in this range already offered in the past, i.e. from €50 of purchase without range restriction for members of the Insiders program.

This will therefore be the ninth product based on the usual principle of the small thematic pack of pieces which must clearly have found its audience among customers of the official online store and the LEGO Stores:

Note: the white house used by LEGO to highlight the bulk of the polybag in the illustrations is obviously not provided in the bag.

LEGO finally officially unveils the two dioramas planned for 2023 in the LEGO Star Wars range with on one side Palpatine's throne accompanied by minifigs of Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and the Emperor himself and on the other a setting speeder bike chase scene on Endor with minifigs of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and a Scout Trooper.

These two scenes are embellished as usual with plates stamped with the logo of the range, a line of dialogue from the Return of the Jedi as well as a piece, also pad-printed, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the film.

These two exhibition products are now referenced on the LEGO Shop will be available for pre-order on the official online store from April 7, 2023 with effective availability announced for May 1, 2023.

LEGO unveils today via its official online store a new reference in the Star Wars range: the set 75355 Ultimate Collector Series X-wing Starfighter. This box of 1949 pieces will be available at the retail price of €239.99 as a VIP preview from May 1, 2023 before global availability announced for May 4.

In the bags, enough to assemble a new exhibition version of the X-wing which will therefore take over from that of the set 10240 Red Five X-Wing Starfighter (1558 pieces) marketed between 2013 and 2015 at the retail price of €219.99. We especially remember the infamous sticker to stick on the canopy of the cockpit of this 2013 X-wing...

Two minifigures are included: a minifigure of Luke Skywalker in a new version and a minifigure of R2-D2 with pad printing on both sides already seen in the LEGO Star Wars Diorama Collection set 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor marketed since last year.

LEGO is making a big effort this year with two pad-printed elements: the canopy of the ship and the presentation plate usually dressed with a big sticker. The presentation plate will also retain its large injection point in the middle of the room: This technical detail was in the past covered by the sticker, it now becomes clearly visible even if LEGO has tried to minimize the effect on some official visuals retouched.
