Get a first-look at this must-have collectible building set featuring the bust of the new Sith Trooper from the highly anticipated film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which will be exclusively sold, priced $45, to select attendees at San Diego Comic-Con.

To get this 484 piece exclusive bust attendees must have registered through the exclusives portal at the official site - no other substitue will be accepted.

Collectors should not be alarmed though - the observant will notice that the bottom right corner has an "early release edition" flash on it. This indicates that the set will be released at general retail (likely without the special SDCC graphics on the packaging) as part of the commitment LEGO made to restricting the number of exclusive sets they produce.

And if this (almost) limited edition bust isn't enough to make you see red, then you'll definitely want to take in the brick-built lifesize Sith Trooper statue that LEGO will have at their booth.

At 6 foot two and just under 170 lbs, this one-of-a-kind build is made up of 34,307 bricks and took 259 hours to design and build. And you can enjoy watching it take form - in less than a minute in the video below!

What are your thoughts on this latest exclusive-to-be-released-everywhere? Would you rather it was purely available at San Diego Comic-Con, or would you prefer the whole LEGO exclusive set dealio was scrapped? You can share your thoughts on this set in our forums.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
