Force Friday’s LEGO Star Wars Darth Revan Mishap is Quite Discouraging.

We’re still a couple of hours away before this year’s Force Friday is officially over, yet it seems that it’s a wrap up already for some of LEGO’s promotional offers. After the announcement of the LEGO Star Wars Darth Revan minifigure promotional, most of us were excited, with raised hopes of having this exclusive minifig which was last offered back in 2014. We reported earlier that this hard-to-find minifig will be available for FREE for any purchase of LEGO Star Wars product. The catch? It is only offered for a day, which is, as we know, during Force Friday.

5002123_alt1 5002123_main

However, things didn’t turn out well for those who opted to wait patiently via shop.LEGO.com. Aesthetically good as it may seem, the revamped LEGO website seemed to have issues that caused a lot of heartaches for those who were looking forward to add this elusive minifig to their collection. As it turned out, the Darth Revan minifigure is no longer available and may have run out already. A quick browse over at shop.LEGO.com now reveals that the said minifigure is no longer attached as a promotional, but instead for some regions, it is the LEGO Nexo Knights Ultimate Lavaria 70335 or the LEGO Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper 30602 (if you’re in the UK), that keeps on popping up as shared by some of our Facebook visitors.

 

This turned out to be a huge disappointment especially for those who were waiting to purchase online the latest LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets. Several fans lamented on the fact that the said sets were not yet available for purchase via shop.LEGO.com, with only a frustrating ‘Coming Soon’ remark appearing for the first 4 to 6 hours after Force Friday officially kicked in. Unfortunately, when the LEGO Rogue One sets were finally made available for online purchase, it seems that the Darth Revan minifig has already run out which really turned off most LEGO Star Wars fans and collectors. To be fair to LEGO, they always have this disclaimer that this exclusive promotional is available only while supplies last. They will always add it in the fine print as you can see below. But technical glitches such as these do not level the playing field so to speak. We’re not sure as of the moment if this is an inventory oversight on LEGO’s part or just a technical issue with the website, but one thing is for sure: most devoted LEGO Star Wars fans were not happy.

In any case, those who still opted make their purchase online are still treated with Double VIP points in the US, and even Triple VIP points in the UK and some parts of Europe.

Here’s a Look At LEGO’s Force Friday Deals.

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.

75159_box1_v39 mayfourth-1

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.

75159_front_01_correct

 

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

5002123_alt1 5002123_main

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.

5004406-1

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

lego-star-wars-2016-rogue-one-sets-1

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).

 

So what do you think of LEGO’s offers on this year’s Force Friday? Share us your thoughts in the comments below or head over at our Facebook page to join in the discussions.

First Hand Look at the LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Rebel U-Wing Fighter (75155) Spotted in Target!

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.

The actual set is better and larger than we have expected, coming in at 659 pieces and retailing for $79.99. According to shop.LEGO.com, the Rebel U-Wing Fighter (75155) measures in at 3” in height, 17” in length, and 7” wide with its wings closed and 25” when opened. That is a relatively large set given its modest piece count. The set also features five minifigs including Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, a Rebel Trooper, a U-Wing Pilot and show-stealer Bistan.  The cockpit itself allows a minifig to be boarded in it while the rest of the rebel team can be placed inside the transporter below the ship.

As seen from Rogue One’s trailer, the Rebel U-Wing is more like a troop transport kind of dropship rather than a star fighter like what Jason has pointed out To showcase some of the features of this set, LEGO has came up with a product animation for the LEGO Star Wars Rebel U-Wing Fighter (75155) as you can see below.

Here’s LEGO’s official description for the Rebel U-Wing:

LEGO Star Wars Rebel U-Wing Fighter (75155)

The amazing U-Wing Fighter has all the details you would expect from an authentic Star Wars model, including 4 big engines, an opening minifigure cockpit with transparent lower observation window, opening side doors with pull-out stud shooters, dual spring-loaded shooters at the front, rear storage hold and huge wings that sweep back to create an even bigger model. Includes 5 minifigures.

  • Includes 5 minifigures: a U-wing Pilot, Bistan, Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor and a Rebel Trooper.
  • Features 4 big engines, an opening minifigure cockpit with transparent lower observation window, opening side doors with pull-out stud shooters, front spring-loaded shooters, rear storage hold and huge sweep-back wings.
  • Weapons include 3 blasters and 2 blaster pistols.
  • Also includes extra ammo.
  • Recreate fantastic scenes from the blockbuster movie, Star Wars: Rogue One.
  • The perfect addition to any LEGO® Star Wars collection.
  • This set offers an age-appropriate building experience for ages 8-14.
  • Measures over 3” (10cm) high, 17” (44cm) long and 7” (20cm) wide with wings closed, and over 14” (38cm) long and 25” (64cm) wide with wings open.

 

NOTE: Though Jason mentioned in the video that Stephen found the LEGO Star Wars Rebel U-Wing Fighter (75155) in a local TRU store, the set was actually discovered at a local Target store in Sawgrass Mill, in Sunrise, Florida.

First Look At LEGO Seasonal Sets Pilgrim (40204) and Christmas Toy Workshop (40205).

A couple of weeks ago we had our first look of one of LEGO’s seasonal sets just in time for the Halloween with the LEGO Vampire and Bat (40203). As it seems, it is customary for these seasonal sets to give us a glimpse on what is next in the series by featuring it at the back of the building instructions.

This time around, Jason from the BrickVibe has recently shared his finds on what is next’s on LEGO’s collectible seasonal sets starting with the Thanksgiving-themed Pilgrim (40204) set. Take a look.

lego-pilgrim-40204

As mentioned, set 40204 is featured at the back of 40203’s building instruction booklet and shows a brick-built figure of a pilgrim seated on what seems to be a pumpkin, enjoying his fill of turkey drumsticks. The LEGO seasonal Pilgrim is expected to hit stores next October retailing at $9.99 same as that of the Vampire and Bat (40203).

Next to the Pilgrim debuts another seasonal collectible that will be a great addition to any Christmas-themed LEGO set. Similarly, Jason managed to get a copy of the LEGO Pilgrim set that gives us a glimpse on the next seasonal set that LEGO will offer probably sometime in November. We do not have an official name for it yet, save for its set number 40205. However, based on how it looks like, we can make a pretty good guess that these are Santa’s workshop elves busy working on some toys.

lego-40205

There is no official word and additional info from LEGO as of the moment on when the Christmas Toy Workshop (40205) will be released, but we can expect that this set will probably retail at the same price range as that of the previous ones before it.

 

LEGO Star Wars Death Star (75159) and Winter Holiday Train (10254) Now Available for VIPs.

It’s September 15, and as mentioned in LEGO’s October Store Calendar, the much awaited Winter Holiday Train (10254) and Star Wars Death Star (75159) is now available for purchase for all LEGO VIP members. Though some LEGO Star Wars fan were not really happy about the rehashed Death Star which takes cue from its predecessor the 10188, LEGO’s intention was to give opportunity for those collectors who missed out on the previous model to own the iconic, planet-zapping, Imperial weapon. Not much has been changed with the design of the Death Star itself, save for some new minifigures that were exclusively added to the set. As we reported previously, the new LEGO Star Wars Death Star (75159) comes in at 4,016 pieces, including 25 minifigures (plus RD-D2 and an Imperial Astromech) and will retail at $500.

75159-1 75159_box1_v39 75159_box5_v39

The LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train (10254) is the next D2C set that is geared towards fans of advanced train systems. It consists of 734 pieces, 16 curved track pieces which you can combine to make one circular track, and 5 minifigures. The Winter Holiday Train may also be upgraded with LEGO Power Functions (not included in the original set) to create a realistic motorized engine.

10254-1 10254_box1_v39 10254_box5_v39

Though being a VIP member allows you early access to these exclusives, which is great if you are really excited to have your hands working on these sets right away, it is also wise to put these on hold specially that the month of October allows you to earn double VIP points on your purchases. That will be great value for your money, especially if you’re investing on larger sets like the LEGO Star Wars Death Star. However, if you’re really eager to build these sets now, just head over at shop.LEGO.com and start clicking right away.

So are you excited for these LEGO exclusives? Tell us what you about these sets in the comments below and be sure to stay tuned at our YouTube channel for Jason and Stephen’s review of the new LEGO Star Wars Death Star and Winter Holiday Train.
