For many of you, this won't even be applicable, however for those who are interested in this particular item I wanted to warn them (and even perhaps provide a tip).
My warning is in regards to:http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=YODACHRON-1
There is an auction on eBay:http://www.ebay.com/itm/LEGO-Yoda-Chronicles-Press-Kit-Promo-2013-Exclusive-Minifigures-NY-TimeSquare-/151060891343?pt=Building_Toys_US&hash=item232bee46cf
That is for the minifigures ONLY. Obviously, a set that comes with the box/instructions is authentic. However, minifigures ONLY is not authentic
, using that word lightly.
The minifigures are real LEGO minifigures, but they are actually not exclusive.
The Yoda is obviously generic, and the Holocron droid easily built with pieces purchased from BL. The only minifigure that seems to be exclusive is the Youngling. However, it is not and can be easily purchased via BL. Standard tan mini legs, the face and hair.. all are easily recognizable. The torso might seem to be exclusive, however it is yet another easy purchase:http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=sw488
That torso will be coming out within a few weeks, and is already showing up on eBay in the set #75021
Thus, none of the minifigures are exclusive, and the entire set (including figures) can be BLed. The only thing exclusive to the "press kit" is the box and instructions :o)
Perhaps everyone was already aware of this, but for the 1 or 2 that didn't, I merely wanted to warn you. I know a lot of people on here are SW minifigure "completionists", and I didn't want anyone to go out a few hundred bucks to purchase an item that really isn't exclusive and doesn't add anything to their collection. If you really want the minifigure to complete the collection, save a few hundred bucks and BL it. I hope this helps some people out!
Happy building :o)
