We have to wait a few more weeks before we are able to share official images of The Last Jedi sets with you, but here's one that we can display now, because 30497 First Order Heavy Assault Walker has been found in a branch of Wal-Mart in Ontario, Canada, priced at $4.86.

I've read elsewhere that some retailers have started selling non-LEGO TLJ toys already ahead of their official release on September 1st so I guess there's a chance you'll start to find boxed LEGO sets too in the coming weeks in shops that don't worry about 'Do not put on shelf until...' labels. Do let us know...

Thanks to Rob B and Kongutahu for the news and images.

Price tag reads "Confidential SW movie", so someone isn't paying attention...

But great find! Did you get them all and put them up on eBay? ;)

Looks like a fair representation of the larger set, although the way the bag is wrinkled it's a bit hard to tell.

Hahaha...Walmart

I love how the tag says "Confidentl SW Movie".

"Bahhh...we don't care how confidential it is...were putting it out and screw it...were even going to SAY it's confidential."

HAHAHA

Why does this never happen in the US?

Price tags often read "SW confidential" long after the set actually cones out. I saw one this week for yoda's star fighter.

In some Swedish stores the price tags still read "Star Wars Confidential", 2 years after the release of the TFA sets. Weird.

Not surprised in the least by this. lol. Here in my local town, pretty much all the retailers put the sets out 2 weeks early. I got the Lego Ninjago stuff mid July, so I'm expecting to be able to pick the SWLJ stuff up within the next week or two off the shelves.

More on subject, for a cheap polybag set, that does look pretty cool and a decent rep of the big set from what I've seen in leaked pics elsewhere.

Can't wait for them. Wish that force friday would have a more interesting minifigure.

Seems it's basically the only Last Jedi set I buy (I like small display minivehicles such as this).

So, the official eBay account of Toys 'R' Us was selling 75176 and 75190 this morning; by this point, they've both sold out.

@BrickHelix - oh the irony, I doubt many US residents will be complaining when Lego does a mass 'Black Friday' release of 2018 sets in November 2017 - whilst we're still trying to accrue September 2017 sets in the UK and the rest of the world. But I'll keep an eye out for any early shelf put-outs all the same.

There's always going to be a shop somewhere that puts things out early. I'd heard reports and seen for myself Ninjago Movie sets out a few days before August.

@Azani - what were the prices of 75176 and 75190?

Guessing that these are popping up in more stores now?
Just saw a bunch at the Walmart in Fergus, ON.
