There are more rumors of some LEGO Summer 2017 sets and this time it’s for LEGO Star Wars courtesy of Hoth Bricks.
There are two more sets for The Force Awakens with the Quadjumper and the Guavian Death Gang. There’s also some more Freemaker Adventure sets which is interesting to see since there was only a small initial wave.
There’s also the two Battle Packs which makes sense since there’s only two coming out in the winter wave instead of the usual four.
The Imperial Hovertank is a headscratcher since there’s already one for the Rogue One wave but I’ve heard that it could be from the the Battlefront game.
The Rebel Hanger could be a store exclusive as it was revealed on Brickset and not from Hoth Bricks. The Vader Transformation set will be the first standalone set for this scene since 2005 although we saw part of it in Emperor Palpatine’s Shuttle back in 2010.

The Great Big Toys R Us Book is now available over at BFAds.net and we can now confirm some of the LEGO promotions they will be having during the holiday season which starts on October 27.
The main one is the LEGO Star Wars Rebel A-wing Pilot (5004408) minifigure polybag with purchase of any LEGO Star Wars purchase of $30 or more.
Other promo listed is for the LEGO Friends Bowling Alley (30399) polybag with any LEGO Friends, Disney Princess, Juniors, or Elves purchase of $30 or more.
Force Friday 2016 is here but not without the hiccups. Technically, the event started at midnight EST/9pm PST but knowing how LEGO [email protected] runs even with the new design didn’t satisfy customers. For those who were patiently waiting to make a purchase online and get the Darth Revan minifigure, I’m sorry to say that that promo may have ran out. Keep in mind that the Rogue One sets weren’t even available yet at this time which was a double bust. At of this writing at 8:00am PST, the Rogue One sets are now available with Double VIP Points but no Revan. Your best chance to score one is at the LEGO Store, if you have one nearby.
Clearly, LEGO screwed up big time with this promotion and I’m pretty sure there will be a lot of unhappy fans who were waiting to pick one up. I’ve read that some people already had issues last night making their purchases with them not going through or placing multiple orders, which probably took up some of the Revan inventory. I love LEGO but these issues with the site, especially during promotional times, need further internal testing. Were any of you successful in getting Revan before they ran out?
The new LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets are now live for Force Friday 2016. You can purchase them on Amazon and soon on [email protected]. Remember on [email protected], you get Double VIP Points as well as the free Darth Revan minifigure polybag with anu LEGO Star Wars purchase.

The time is almost here for the Force Friday events that will be happening at various retailers for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In less than 12 hours here on the west coast, LEGO and Toys R Us will be having their own promotions for Force Friday.
Over at LEGO, you can get a FREE Darth Revan (5002123) minifigure polybag with any LEGO Star Wars purchase at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected], while supplies last. I believe keychains also work for this promo but you’ll have to double check.
While you’re at it, you can also earn Double VIP Points on ALL LEGO Star Wars sets including the UCS Death Star (75159). Speaking of the Death Star, if you purhase it during Force Friday, you will be entered to win the limited edition Escape the Space Slug set.
If you don’t want to purchase the Death Star just yet, you can also enter through email.
1) Send us an email at the address below, with the following information:
• Write “LEGO Star Wars™ Escape the Space Slug™ Sweepstakes” in the subject line
• First and Last Name

• VIP Card Number

Toys R Us
Toys R Us will be having their own Force Friday event which I hear they will be giving out free posters and t-shirts. One of their promotions they currently have going on is the one for the First Order General (5004406) minifigure polybag. You can get it for FREE with a purchase of any LEGO Star Wars set $30 or more. You can also try to purchase it by itself for $4.99 each. If you can’t find it, they’re probably behind the checkout counters. The TRU item number is 553205 if you need helping locating it.
The new Toys R Us ad for the week of 9/25-10/1 is now available and as I expected, the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens First Order General (5004406) minifigure polybag will be available for free with purchases of any LEGO Star Wars set of $30 or more. This offer is only available in stores and if you have a lenient one, you can probably purchase it by itself for $4.99. If there’s any left over by next Sunday, they’ll be available for purchase regularly. If you can’t find it, they’re probably hiding behind the counters. The TRU item number for the polybag is 553205.
