Lego Star Wars 2014 Sets Delayed in US and Canada

UPDATE: The first Lego Star Wars wave of 2014 is delayed in The US and Canada.

The new sets have not been seen in stores yet, nor are they on the official LEGO Shop at Home page for the US. By this time, they normally are. They have been released in Europe, which follows all years past – they are always first to get the sets. However, the US and Canada traditionally gets them late December to early January. Because of “The Lego Movie” and the sets Lego has put out for it, it seems that Star Wars has been put on hold until March.

Not to mention that Disney may have something to do with it since they have now owned the brand for a little over a year. If memory serves, Disney acquired Lucasfilm around late December of 2012. Thus, there wasn’t enough time for them to alter plans on the January 2013 wave release. This is just speculation, of course; ultimately, whatever the cause, us North Americans will have to wait until March. So if you really want to get your hands on these sets now, you’ll have to order from Europe, which is pricey.

Lego has, however, updated their website (note: not Shop at Home) with some new images and video of the sets.
