Today we are quickly interested in the content of the LEGO Star Wars set 40483 Luke Skywalker's Lightsaber, a box of 173 pieces that will be offered from November 26 to 29 for the purchase of the LEGO Star Wars set 75313AT-AT (799.99 €). This is not the first time that LEGO has tried to reproduce a saber handle from the Star Wars universe, the manufacturer already offered in 2020 the reference 5006290 Star Wars Yoda's Lightsaber offered to VIP program members with the purchase of the LEGO Star Wars set 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina.
This new set being a gift offered to all customers of the official online store or the LEGO Stores without requiring a VIP member status, the packaging here is different from that reserved for the boxes offered as VIP "rewards". The box stamped "18+" is therefore a little sexier and fits in with the rest of the range and in particular products intended for an adult clientele who can afford to have fun with the biggest sets imagined by LEGO.
Two sachets and a few minutes later, the object is assembled. Nothing very complicated here, the pleasure will lie above all in the display of the product on the corner of a shelf. We will still remember the presence of a Kyber crystal at the heart of the handle and the correct finish of the product, even if we do not reach the level of detail of the best fan creations on this theme and the metallic aspect is not really at the rendezvous with the gray parts used. No laser, it's just the handle. The display to build here doesn't coordinate with the one for Yoda's saber handle and that's a bit of a shame, especially since this one is a bit more understated and understated. The plate specifying what it is is obviously pad printed, there are no stickers in this box.
Do not bother to make tons, this is not a product that will be available in your favorite toy store and the limited distribution of this box, conditioned with the purchase of a set sold at the public price of 799.99 €, the reserve de facto to a clientele of fans who will absolutely want to own or exhibit this reproduction of the handle of Luke Skywalker's saber. It will therefore be up to everyone to do their accounts and judge the relevance of the offer: Immediately buy a set that will sooner or later end up being available for much less elsewhere and take advantage of this gift or ignore the object and take his pain patiently.
Let's be honest, this exclusive little box will reward anyone who doesn't hesitate to purchase the LEGO Star Wars set. 75313AT-AT from its launch and we can consider that LEGO is making the effort to offer them an original, unique and exclusive reward. Those who, like me, had fallen into the trap of VIP Black Card and his promises on the occasion of the launch of the set 75192 Millennium Falcon will appreciate. Those who hope to see one day arrive a whole range of saber handles from the Star Wars universe are for the moment at their expense, LEGO seems to reserve the idea for specific operations with very limited mintage products.
Note: The set presented here, provided by LEGO, is as usual involved. Deadline fixed at 4th December 2021 next at 23pm.

I don't work for LEGO®, I am not corrupted by LEGO®, I buy my LEGO® myself and what I am given, I offer it to the readers of the site.For the rest, the owners of the respective brands mentioned on the site remain the owners and it is very well like that, blablabla ....
The fact that LEGO thrills by sending sets for reviews and other tests obviously does not influence my opinion on these products.
