cool concept and love the packaging but it just looks off, specifically the brow looks too pronounced

I agree it's not perfect but it doesn't look half bad considering the piece count. Hopefully this is a precursor to a UCS Vader Bust similair to the UCS Darth Maul.

I'm loving it. Just wish LEGO could have figured out how to include red lenses tho.

2500 will be available at Celebration. If they get lotteried off over the five days that's 500 per day. Typically any that don't get collected either go in the last lottery of the day and then a mega lottery on the last day, so if you're there on Monday you'll have the best shot.

Also unless these ones have some kind of exclusive print or sticker on the box they'll be easier to get at Target.

I was lucky enough to snag one of these at Celebration; I didn't realize it would have such limited availability at Target! I had assumed it would become a store exclusive (minus the Celebration logo on the packaging, of course).

I managed to get one on the Monday when LEGO released all remaining stock.

Looks like this is a Red Card Exclusive for Target. Bummer
Off topic reply. The Target RedCard is a great card to have if you don't mind having another card in your wallet. You automatically get an immediate 5% off of your Target purchase in store and online plus you get free shipping online with no minimum. I love my RedCard.

Once I learned that I could get a debit version, I signed up and agree. I wasn't interested in a line of credit, but getting 5% off just for using their debit card instead of BOA's is pretty great.

So it's kind of like Amazon Prime, but with no subscription fee and a lot more flexibility.

Usually slower shipping than Amazon and no extras like Prime Video streaming but Red Card is very much worth it if you shop at Target much.
