The LEGO event was held at select Walmarts right before the release of Episode II The Clone Wars. It was meant to drive up interest for the movie. If you were lucky enough to be chosen to participate you were given 60 seconds to reach your hand into the box and grab out as many 501st pieces and build as many completed minifigures as possible.
Many of the Walmarts allowed the kids participating to keep the minifigures they built, so getting a complete set is near impossible. Adding to the rarity is the fact that LEGO required Walmart to destroy any sets that were leftover. Of course not every Walmart employee listened to this and a few boxes have made it out to the public. I will trade for German WW1 militaria items. Thank you for reading and good luck collectors!
