Pre-orders have been available for some time already for Lego Star Wars: Skywalker Saga, but now you can pre order with the knowledge of exactly when you can start playing. Take a look at what your purchase options are below.
Lego Star Wars: Skywalker Saga Deluxe Edition
The Deluxe Edition of the Lego Skywalker Saga not only includes the base game, but also comes with a character collection featuring six character packs otherwise not featured in the Skywalker Saga. So if you want to play through the stories from any of the nine mainline movies as, say, The Mandalorian or Jyn Erson, you’ll be able to with the Deluxe Edition. What’s more – and even more exciting – is the Luke Skywalker with Blue Milk Lego Minifigure that rounds out this Edition.
Finally, for those who order the Deluxe Edition in the Americas, the game will come with an exclusive clear slipcover, which – when removed – unmasks Darth Vader. Check out the slipcover in action here.

While there are no official pre order bonuses, Gamestop are offering their own pre order bonus to players in the US. Order your copy of Lego Star Wars: Skywalker Saga Deluxe Edition from Gamestop and you could get a mini Lego X-wing kit as well. The X-wing kit is only available through Gamestop while stock lasts, so get in quick.

Lego Star Wars fans in the UK, on the other hand, can get themselves the exclusive Steelbook edition of the game, which includes the character pack mentioned above, as well as the Luke Skywalker Minifigure. However, by ordering this Edition, you will also get the Han Solo in Carbonite steelbook, for an extra awesomely nerdy way to show off your new favorite game.
