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.
For those of you who have missed out on this May the 4th LEGO Star Wars exclusive, here’s your chance (read: probably last) to win the elusive “Escape the Space Slug” set. It was previously given to all LEGO VIP customers who made a purchase of $150 worth of LEGO Star Wars merchandise from April 30 to May 4 of this year. But with only 3,500 sets ever released to over 120 LEGO stores worldwide, it is clearly obvious that the demand for this exclusive collectible will be on a very high scale.
We saw… we waited… and we’re absolutely thrilled! Together with the official release of LEGO Dimension’s next wave of great IPs and characters, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment has also revealed its trailer that highlights the latest feature of LEGO Dimensions Series 2 – the Battle Arena. The split-screen, competitive gameplay allows up to 4 players to battle it out through the Battle Arena’s various game modes such as Capture the Flag, Objective, Bash Bash and Tick, Tag Boom using any of the series minifig character. Check out the video below.
When Stephen went to his local toy store for his usual ‘patrol duty’ for awesome LEGO sets and choice finds, something unexpectedly cool happened. Displayed at Sawgrass Mills Target Store in Sunrise, Florida is an actual LEGO set dedicated to the newest transport to hit the roster of starships that will debut in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Stephen had the chance to snap a 2-minute video of the LEGO Star Wars Rebel U-Wing Fighter (75155) that was prominently displayed like a centerpiece, together with other LEGO sets offered at the said store. The same is also listed in Target’s online store. There were no sets of the Rebel U-Wing that were placed on Target’s shelves just yet, but we’re pretty sure that they all have them ready at the back just waiting for the official release on September 30 in time for Force Friday. Take a look.
Just moments ago, LEGO Dimensions has announced the first wave of toys-to-life sets scheduled to be released in February 10, 2017. In line with the release of its next brick-built film in the tradition of the LEGO Movie, LEGO Dimensions will be releasing its next Story Pack and Fun Pack built around the LEGO Batman Movie, plus another Fun Pack dedicated to the classic 80s TV series Knight Rider. Similar to previous Story Packs, the LEGO Batman Story Pack allows gamers to play through the film’s storyline, while the Fun Packs provide additional game content that can be unlocked in-game. Take a look at these images courtesy of Warner Bros Home Entertainment followed by the official press release. The first wave of Series 2 LEGO Dimensions sets is now available for pre-order and is slated to be released before the end of this month.
