Hello, does anyone know if this Darth Vader bust is going to be on sale in the UK. Or do I need to get stuck in to e-bay. 
Cheers

    As this set was released prior to May 01, it does not fall under TLG's new policy to release region-specific sets worldwide after a couple of months. #80103 is the first set covered by this new policy.

    If the box is not important to you, it is easy to BL the parts as there are no exclusive pieces. I spent EUR 50 on getting the parts from B&P/PaB as 1 wedge piece was new at the time and not yet available on BL. However all parts can now also be obtained on BL.

    Isn't the bust a promotional set anyway - so even if it was a later one, it might not be covered under this new policy. It'll be interesting to see what does and doesn't get covered.

    ^if I remember correctly comic-con and convention exclusives will remain that. There may be some that get sold as a store exclusives, but they won't be a LEGO release.

    Oftentimes, only a magic sticker is the differentiating factor for an 'exclusive' that doesn't end up being actually exclusive.

    Yeah, but it is an exclusive magic sticker.

    What is confusing people is that the set was "for sale" at Target for a limited time. Technically, it was a convention "exclusive" first before Targer started selling them. It does say "Star Wars Celebration" on the box. The thing that is most important is that it was available before the May 1st "deadline" that TLG put out there, so I'm 99.9% sure that it won't be available.

    Or apparently needing to have a useless black card, but not actually needing to have said useless black card.

    Not really. It has been discussed plenty before you posted.
