Force Friday II - 1st of September

Posted by ,

Force Friday proved enormously successful in 2015 and the date of the second event has been announced today. Force Friday II on the 1st of September will yield a range of new products based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, including at least seven LEGO sets.

The branding has also been revealed, showing Rey, Finn and Poe alongside a red and white design which recalls that seen in 2009 and 2010. Rey is notably holding Luke's blue lightsaber and sports a new hair style while Finn and Poe have undergone little change since The Force Awakens.

Finally, it has been confirmed that nothing will be officially revealed until the 1st of September, following the precedent of 2015.

What are you hoping to see from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the associated LEGO products? Let us know in the comments below.

Well, my bet is on UCS Falcon reissue.

Really looking forward to episode VIII, and more screen-time for Luke Skywalker. It would have been cool to get a Jedi step set, aside from that I'm looking forward to see clear pictures of the First Order battle pack.

Wasn't there a Force Friday last year?

My 'hope' would be a UCS Cloud City set. What I think we'll actually get - not a UCS Cloud City set.

Rey's new hair looks kinda weird to me. I'll have to wait until I see a clearer picture of it before I make a final decision on whether or not I like it.

@The Green Brick Giant Yes there was

@The Green Brick Giant - The 30th of September 2016 was officially known as 'Rogue Friday' and was not nearly as significant as the 2015 event. Presumably the term 'Force Friday' will only apply to the episodic films.

I feel Rey's hair is a lot like Qui-Gon's. It's unusual to have three characters on the boxes is it not?

I can't get this to make any sense. I didn't understand the two I's in the start but later I found out. In 2015 the first Force Friday was held, and this year's is number two, but all called the Rogue One day in 2016 for Force Friday too. How make this sense? We're only 1 movie from the last of the Star Wars Saga, so the last day will be called Force Friday III. What about the other days? I really don't understand.

I'm hoping that the Resistance in particular get some new craft and vehicles. TFA didn't really have much to get excited by on that front

I'm just crossing my fingers for Luke in a set that's $50 or less...

Really hyped!

I'm just hoping that due to the pushed back release date from May to December the sets have a better chance of being film accurate or at least on par with the Rogue One offerings which IMO were excellent compared to the TFA sets.

Sweet! But they STILL haven't released the trailer yet!

^^ I think we would have seen them by now if they were a May release so there might still be inaccuracies

This year I was hoping for a UCS set related to the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope, thus was expecting a re-release of the Falcon, Tantive IV or Star Destroyer

@AussieSamurai Doesn't mean we can't still get one. We've seen as many as three UCS sets in one year, and typically two. Also, the UCS sets no longer use the standard Disney-dictated Star Wars packaging. Starting with the Sandcrawler there is no trim on the edges of the box.

Honestly this new packaging looks a bit weak to me. Reminds me of the Clone Wars boxes circa 2008.

With Episode 8 - The Last Jedi, will be interesting re the vehicles that we will get.
It has been a few years since the last Star Destroyer was issued and a while since it was available. (75055), surely the Finalizer or something similar is a must.

I agree thought it was Qui-Gon Jinn on the box! I also agree that cloud city would be good, but they did the han in carbonite last year. I really want an updated Princess Leia, that out fit is beautiful and I want a better version of it.. but i can understand why we've not had another set, there aren't many scenes that work for a set. Unless we got a dinner with dad set! That would be cool!!

Anyone else notice Rey new hair look, looks very similair to that of qui gon's? Edited: After posting this i realized Jacob realized this also!

We'll be even more fired up in 2 years when Darth Maul comes back for Episode IX!

The Force Awakens made me realize there are more than three Star Wars movies. Indeed, there are six. The 7th was such a horrid, putrid mess that I will happily boycott anything related to it, including the LEGO sets. Have been buying my OT/PT sets second-hand for some years now, Disney can go take a hike.

I don't get the hatred for A New New Hope (TFW / VII), it was unoriginal, but I rather have that then the prequels which are just long, BORING, and BORING, and bad.

@Golem25
I thought TFA was quite good. But then again, you probably walked in thinking you were gonna hate it, which is a sure way to hate a film.

Like joemmo I am hoping the design team at Lucasfilm/Disney introduce more 'newness' into this film, rather than rehashing or slightly updating most key vehicles, and even planetary environments.

...or on the other hand we could have Poe fighting off the First Order from a snowy planet, whilst Rey is told by Luke to train with an elderly Jedi in a swamp, only to have to save Finn and Chewie in a city in the clouds. How nostalgic are you feeling Disney? Only joking of course, but you get the picture, I'd like to see some more creativity - a surprising amount was present in Rogue One and that was shackled to a timeline that had already passed, so there's still hope yet!

I am honestly not looking forwards any Sequel Trilogy sets from Lego as they won't match what's i am trying to do in my City.

I am one with The Force Friday. The Force Friday is with me, I am one with The Force...[Praying for a UCS Millennium Falcon]

As a lover of all things Star Wars, of course this gets me very excited. I can't wait for the new waves of sets! Also, is it just me, or does anyone else see what looks to be a padawan braid in her hair? I think that would be very cool if it is, a nice bridge between the prequels and sequels.

Four words: first order star destroyer. I NEED one.

@McSeanalds, nice assumption you made there, tough guy. Rebuking criticism by calling the other prejudiced, good one.

I think the SW red and white box design was for 2009.

Doesn't Rey look like she copied Qui-Gon Jinn's hairstyle? Will LEGO be reissuing the same hair element?

@CapnRex where was the source? Everywhere I've looked it either says Rogue One Force Friday or simply Force Friday

Ooh, it's on my birthday! I'm excited, but I'm not sure I'll be able to go. We'll see.
