We’re a few hours away from the launch of this year’s Star Wars Force Friday, and The LEGO Group has definitely something in store for all the Star Wars faithful. Let’s take a look at some exclusives that LEGO has cued in for release tomorrow.
The LEGO Star Wars UCS Death Star 75159 and Escape the Space Slug Set.
LEGO VIP members who missed out on the first brick-built iteration of the planetary weapon, now has the chance of owning this piece of Star Wars icon with the LEGO Star Wars UCS Death Star 75159. Though much has been said (or ranted) about this rehash of the older UCS Death Star 10188, there is still some considerable hype and expectation for this set once it is made available to the general public on Friday.
Thankfully, Stephen has given us an early review of the 75159 through the video below.
Another set to look forward to is the exclusive (and should I say elusive) promotional LEGO Star Wars Escape the Space Slug set. As we have noted earlier, the highly prized set comes as a prize for winning VIP winners who have either purchased the LEGO Star Wars UCS Death Star 75159 from September 15-30, or those who have registered via email. You still have a chance to earn a raffle entry for the set’s sweepstakes which will end on September 30 at 11:59 EST. This time, there’s only a total of 120 LEGO Escape the Space Slug sets to be raffled throughout the US and Canada so you can just imagine how valuable this set will be later on.
The LEGO Star Wars Darth Revan and First Order General Minifigures
For those of you have missed on the promotional LEGO Star Wars Darth Revan minifigure back in 2014, now is the best time to have it for FREE! You must be quick though, since this time, the minifig will only be offered for a day together with a purchase of any LEGO Star Wars sets during Force Friday. It seems that there are no other conditions attached to this promotional other than the fact that it comes for free with a LEGO Star Wars purchase AND it is only offered for one day. If Force Friday is not a good enough reason to invest in some LEGO Star Wars sets, then probably throwing in a LEGO Darth Revan minifig for free will definitely sweeten the deal.
Other than free posters and shirts that celebrate Force Friday, Toys R Us stores across the US will be giving away a FREE LEGO Star Wars First Order General minifigure for any qualifying LEGO Star Wars purchase of $30 and above. However, unlike the Darth Revan minifig, the First Order General may also be purchased as a polybag for $4.99 and will be available as supplies last. Again, thankfully, Stephen gives us a first look of the Episode VII character through his review below.
LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Sets
Of course, do we need to say more about this? It’s an all-out frenzy once the latest addition to the LEGO Star Wars theme hits shelves on Force Friday. With five sets and three buildable figures based on the highly anticipated Star Wars Rogue One film, LEGO and Star Wars fans have been waiting patiently for these sets to be unveiled. Plus, with the freebies and double VIP points that you can get for any qualifying LEGO Star Wars purchase, this is one Force Friday that you will surely don’t want to miss. Here’s Stephen once again with reviews on two of LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets – Krennic’s Imperial Shuttle (75156) and K-2SO Buildable Figure (75120).
