During some of the toy conventions, LEGO releases exclusive models or minifigures for the event.
For the 2012 Comic Convention at San Diego, LEGO had this cute mini version of Darth Maul’s Sith Infiltrator.
Only 1000 of them were available and each was individually numbered making them super exclusive and limited.
Instead of packaging in the usual card board boxes, these came in an attractive metal tin.
Inside the tin are the instructions, bag of parts and a separately bagged Darth Maul minifigure. This minifigure is the same as some of the promotions
LEGO has released a series of this mini Star Wars ships, this being the first set.
2012 LEGO Star Wars Limited Edition Mini Ships
- San Diego Comic Con Darth Maul Mini Sith Infiltrator
- Star Wars Celebration VI Boba Fett’s Mini Slave I
- New York Comic Con Luke Skywalker’s Mini Landspeeder
For 2013, LEGO released another mini ship at the San Diego Comic Con. The model released is the Jek-14 Mini Stealth Starfighter.
However, this time around the set only came in a paper box instead of the metal tins. It is still limited to 1000 sets like before and sold for $40.
I actually found out about the release of these collector sets only just before the NYCC 2012. So after buying the Mini Landspeeder on eBay, I went to buy the other two sets to complete the collection.
They make a nice display piece and take up little space. Great for any fan of Star Wars and LEGO.
