    Chrome TC-14

    I am late, late, late to the posting party about the upcoming May the force be with you (May 4th and 5th) Promotional Mini-figure that will be available from Lego.com.

    Yes, new has begun to circulate about the release of the Promotional TC-14 mini figure. New of the release appears to be accidental, in that the source of the now ubiquitous mini-figure, has come form Flickr USER ACPin, who uploaded digital copies of the May 2012 Lego Calendar. So other than the official calendar, there is no official word on the release from LEGO, or shop.LEGO.com!

    For those who are unfamiliar with this promotion, LEGO traditionally, has had a May the 4th (get it may the fourth – May the Force? any way), Where many Star Wars sets are discounted, and an exclusive promotional mini-figure, or set is given away with each purchase that exceeds a specific dollar value.
    in 2011 it was The ARF Shadow Trooper, but this year it is a Chrome TC-14 protocol Droid.

    Exclusive figs are a great investment, and Chrome Figures are generally exceptionally rare as LEGO figures go, Usually commanding premium prices when production and distribution ceases. Just look at the current Bricklink prices for past promotional Figs:
    2011 ARF Shadow Trooper Avg US$ 27.82
    2010 Chrome Storm Trooper Avg US$ 23.52
    2009 Chrome Black Darth Vader Avg. US$ 48.62
    2007 Chrome C-3PO Avg $US 348.30

    While is is unlikely that TC-14 would hit the insane prices of the Chrome C-3PO, the 25 to $27 of the Chrome Storm trooper or ARF Shadow Trooper, seems a reasonable expectation. So come May 4th Head on Over to shop.LEGO.com! and buy yourself US$ 75 worth of LEGO Star wars sets.
