If like us you were looking forward to adding the Free LEGO® Star Wars Anniversary Pod to your collection in a couple of weeks time, then you’ll be disappointed to learn that the promotional set has been pulled. The LEGO Pods are funky little sets encased in a clamshell case, inside is a minifigure and some accessories. Across 2917 we’ve already had pods themed around The LEGO Batman and NINJAGO Movies, NEXO KNIGHTS and LEGO Friends. The Star Wars pod would of come in a silver metallic and contained the new style Vader Minifigure and a mini regeneration panel. A statement has been released which states its withdrawal is due to quality issues and have replaced the promotion with 10% off all LEGO Star Wars sets.
“We have to inform that as part of our internal quality screening process, we have found that the Star Wars Metalized Pod 5005376 does not meet our strict standards.
“As you know, we take the quality and safety of our products extremely seriously, and so out of an abundance of caution we have decided not to launch the Star Wars Pod.
“We are committed to continuing support for our Star Wars promotion, and will offer consumers 10% off across all LEGO Star Wars products from 18th – 24th December 2017, excluding 75192 Millennium Falcon.”
