Rumours have swirled for a while, but now Hoth Bricks claims to have official confirmation of just what European LEGO fans can expect for this year’s Force Friday event, when the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sets will be officially launched.
If you pick up your sets from a LEGO Store, or order online at shop.LEGO.com, then you’ll bag yourself a single 30602 First Order Stormtrooper polybag – rather than the five originally reported – as well as triple VIP points, equivalent to a 15% discount to use against future purchases.
It’s no Darth Revan, but the triple VIP points is pretty tempting nevertheless – particularly when combined with the £10 off £40/€10 off €40 discount code (GB10, FR10, etc.). There’s never been a better time to buy 75159 Death Star, for instance (mainly because there’s never been another time at all, at least for non-VIPs).
The offer’s valid from September 30 to October 2, so it’s more like a Force weekend, but who’s counting? Plus, that gives you time to check out our Rogue One set reviews before deciding, the first of which you’ll be able to read in the coming days. Stay tuned…
