Only released five days ago the 75144 UCS Snowspeeder is now on back order in Europe, Scandanavia and Australia/New Zealand - making it the fastest selling UCS set offered. Don't worry if you didn't grab one because a stock refresh is due in the next 30 days, and the promotional polybagged 30611 R2-D2 will still be included in any back orders made up 6th (or 7th if you are in North America) May 2017. US and Canadian shoppers should start tuning their engine because the race to order theirs begins in a few short hours. May The Fourth Be With You!

Toys "R" Us has teamed up with LEGO to bring not one but two exclusive posters to Australia. To receive either a red or a black themed poster all you need to do is spend AU$50 (or more) on LEGO Star Wars products. The offer runs from May 4th to 9th, or until stocks run out. As soon as we get images of the posters we'll be sure to share them with the rest of Rebelscum.

The official Star Wars polling station to determine the next fan's choice action figure has now shut its doors and a few resourceful websites, like From 4-LOM to Zuckuss, were at hand to screencap the results. And with over 55,000 people taking part the undeclared winner is Doctor Aphra. Our more humble poll - with just under 55,000 entries - has Saelt-Marae (Yak-face) as the popular choice. Not satisfied with either outcome? Stay tuned for our next poll - starting May 4th!
