Last Day for LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II Promotion

Today is the last day for the LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II promotion at [email protected] and as of this post, you have less than 12 hours to get your orders in for the promotional items. You’ll still get Double VIP Points on all LEGO Star Wars items and the exclusive UCS Millennium Falcon poster but the Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) is now out of stock. Instead with your purchase of $50 or more, you’ll get the Admiral Yularen (5002947) which is left over from the May the 4th promotion in 2015. There’s also a number of sets still on sale but there’s also some sets that’s out of stock or on backorder.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) May Be Extremely Limited at Release

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

The announcement of the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) was a pretty exciting event a few days ago but the actual release of the set on September 14 may be one of the most stressful things you will experience while purchasing a LEGO set. I’ve heard from a very trusted source that the set may be extremely limited upon its release, at least at LEGO Brand Stores, so much that you may have to line up early for a chance to get it. When I say early, I mean very early. Think of something like lining up for Hall H for the Marvel panel at San Diego Comic Con. I’ve been talking to some fans and they’re telling me that they will be lining up in the middle of the night to be one of the first people in line when the store opens.

As for online ordering, I expect it to be backstocked then temporarily out of stock in the first few minutes it goes live. I’ve also heard that if you’re lucky to get your order in, the set will be shipped triple boxed so it won’t be damaged during shipping. Even at the $800 price point, I have a feeling that the UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) will be more hard to get than the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309).

Of course, this is all hearsay but I trust my source enough to do a dedicated post on it. You may say that this might cause a ruckus but if you’re a LEGO Star Wars fan, you’ll do what it takes to get the most definitive Millennium Falcon set that LEGO has produced to date.

The front of it shows the Millennium Falcon in all its glory while the back shows a VIP card with a blurb that says you can buy it 16 days before the general release. I’ll get more on that in a separate post.
