5002947 Admiral Yularen is a polybag which was released as a part of the 2015 "May the Fourth Be With You" promotion.

Description[edit | edit source]

The polybag contains four pieces to build a Yularen minifigure, two of which are exclusive to this set. Yularen has a plain white leg piece, and has a white torso with white arms and flesh-coloured hands. The torso features printing for an Imperial officer's tunic. On the front, this printing includes a black strip for the belt at the bottom of the piece for a belt. The belt also has a silver buckle in the centre with black outlining and detailing, and a single small silver circle to the left of the buckle. Also printed on the front are grey and dark grey creases, and outlining for the the front area of the tunic. This front area is outlined in black for the right-hand side and the top area, but the left-hand area is done in dark grey. Positioned on the left side of the chest is a rectangular silver rank insignia with black outlining. Inside the silver area are six rectangles in a row- three red followed by three blue, indicating the rank of colonel. The back of the torso piece also has creases, and a a plain black strip for the back of the belt. The main folds for the back area are outlined in grey, except for the neck area which is black. Yularen has a flesh-coloured head piece, featuring dark flesh printing for the cheekbones and chin, and for wrinkles under the eyes and between the eyebrows. Also printed are dark grey downturned eyebrows, black eyes with white pupils, and a white and grey moustache. Yularen comes with a white combed-back hairpiece.

Availability[edit | edit source]

This set was released in 2015 as a part of the yearly "May the Fourth Be With You" promotion. In the United States and Canada, the promotion ran from May 2 to May 4, while in most other countries it ran between May 2 and May 9. It was given away when over a certain amount was spent on Star Wars purchases at LEGO Stores or on the official online LEGO shop. These amounts included:

  • Flag-US.png United States - $75
  • Flag-UK.png United Kingdom - £50
  • Flag-DE.png Germany - €55
  • Flag-AU.png Australia - $100

The same deal was later available between September 4 and September 5 (except for in the US and Canada) to celebrate "Force Friday", the day that The Force Awakens sets were officially revealed and made available for purchase.

Background[edit | edit source]

Wulff Yularen served the Republic as an admiral during the Clone Wars, working under Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and commanding his flagship, the Resolute. After the Republic was re-formed into the Galactic Empire, Yularen transferred to the Imperial Security Bureau and had a rank of colonel but was later promoted to the position of Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence. Yularen was killed aboard the Death Star when the battlestation was destroyed by the Rebel Alliance pilot Luke Skywalker.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Although this polybag is called "Admiral Yularen", it is based on Yularen's appearance in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope where he holds the rank of Colonel in the Imperial Security Bureau.
  • Yularen has a white leg piece, however like all other Imperial Security Bureau officers in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, he wore black trousers in the film.
