At the moment, it is on back order from the LEGO Shop online, so If you need to grab one (or two) they’re now available in stock on Amazon US for $179.99 (RRP). You can pick up your copy by clicking the image below!

As Black Friday is now upon readers in the UK, we thought it would be useful to give a quick summary of some of the best deals out there for LEGO fans. While some of the deals may be available in other countries, these particular deals were selected for Amazon UK customers. Discounts vary from 28% to 50%, all currently a better saving than LEGO themselves are offering.
Star Wars The Last Jedi 75179 Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter £54.99 (27% discount)
The set retails for $24.99 and includes 4 minifigures with 231 pieces. We hope that LEGO makes sufficient quantities for everyone to have this lovely little set, but based on the frustratingly limited availability of highly anticipated sets like 21110 Research Institute, 21309 Apollo Saturn V, and 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon, we’re forced to expect limited availability ahead of the holiday season.

Presumably in advance of the impending release of summer 2017 LEGO Star Wars sets, Amazon.com is heavily discounting a number of sets from The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and Rebels.
75148 Encounter on Jakku from The Force Awakens is a whopping 40% off, listed at only $35.76 (down from $60). This is the only set so far that includes Unkar Plutt, and the Luggabeast with Teedo is definitely the highlight of the set.
75154 TIE Striker from Rogue One is 34% off $45.88. We thought this set wasn’t worth the full $70 price tag when we reviewed the LEGO TIE Striker, but this is definitely a much more palatable price for 543 pieces.
