LEGO Shop@Home Force Friday Darth Revan Debacle

Force Friday 2016 is here but not without the hiccups. Technically, the event started at midnight EST/9pm PST but knowing how LEGO Shop@Home 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 availableicon 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?


LEGO Star Wars Rogue One Force Friday Events (North America)

LEGO Star Wars Rogue One

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 Shop@Home, 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)icon. 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.

Star Wars Force Friday 2016 Returns in September

It appears Force Friday will be a yearly thing as Star Wars: Rogue One will have its own event and there are reports that it is planned for September 30 for this year. The event again will be connected to the upcoming movie being released in December although the date of the event has been pushed back a little from last year’s date.

We already know there will be five LEGO Star Wars sets based on the movie with set numbers:


We also know there will be three Star Wars Buildable Figures with the set numbers:


We’ll most likely see official images of the sets at the Force Friday launch date similar to last year with very heavy embargo rules.
