Confirmed: Clone Lieutenant is coming to the UK

Posted by ,

The latest brand store brochure confirms that 5001709 Clone Trooper Lieutenant will be available in the UK, and probably the rest of Europe, at the start of November, when you spend £50 on Star Wars sets.

Thanks James Lego for the news.

Dang... spent £15 on one of these from a Czech eBay seller - mind, another one is always useful!

A free clone and the second Christmas set in November?!

Just in time for when I get the Ewok village on AFOL day.

Excellent, just in time to secure a Winter Village Market as it comes back in stock!

Looking at the date on the image above it looks like this offer will have finished before the second promotional christmas set is available during the Brick Friday Period.

According to a flyer picked up in the Lego brand stores at Meadowhall in the UK, Lego are running three promotions over the Brick Friday period (29th November - 2nd December). Spend £25 and get a free pick a brick box, spend £50 and get the Lego Christmas Tree Truck, spend £100 and get 10% discount.

I assume these offers will stack but I think the Clone Trooper will have gone by then. :o(

Any possibility of the new LEGO store at Newcastle/Gateshead Metrocentre opening in time for AFOL day and the Clone Lieutenant offer ....and store opening freebies?! ....yes, greedy, I know ;-)

@Huw, I know WVM isn't a Star Wars set, but was hoping to get one with a Star Wars order. However, it looks like there is nothing left for me to get (Ewok Village is too overpriced). Oh well, wait and pick one up cheap on eBay.

^The Ewok Village isn't overpriced at all, if the price is too high it's because the set is too big. ;)
And I don't just want to make a pointless smart alec comment, it's a great set I can't encourage you to get strongly enough! Have another good look at it, it's really superb and well worth the price for what you get. I'm sure if you change your mind and fork out for it you'd be glad you did. :)

^Thank you for your advice, and I respect your opinion, however I cannot justify the cost of Ewok Village in comparison to the Modular Buildings. I already have Town Hall lined up for Christmas with the others to follow in the future. As Ewok Village will probably, like Death Star, be available for a good 5+ years, I will be in no rush to buy it. It certainly appeared to be a fantastic set from the many reviews I have seen, but money set aside for Modulars and a severe lack of display space mean I will probably get it within a few years time.

They always say "when you spend £50 on star wars sets" but really it's just when u spend £50 on anything. or so it has been the last few times as far as I know...

^^^No worries, I'm sure you're right about how long it'll be available, and if you're getting modular buildings instead I'll stop trying to convince you! ;)

Thank you SO much for posting this!! I am seriously excited and now I can get the 2 I need to make my legion of new clone troopers. Great minifig and also very useful and collectible. Not sure where these appear though. Please notify me! Really can't wait to buy my at-te.
