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?
