Triple Force Friday announced!

Posted by ,

The recent episodic Star Wars movies have each been preceded by Force Friday events, when the initial products for the films were released.

StarWars.com has confirmed that Triple Force Friday is taking place on the 4th of October this year and will include products based upon Star Wars Episode IX, The Mandalorian and the Jedi: Fallen Order video game.

There will certainly be LEGO sets for the movie and I presume there will be for the television series as well, although that has not been confirmed.

nice, looking forward to The Mandalorian. too bad there hasn't been any final season of Rebels sets, though

Let's hope that translates to Triple VIP...

This is actually the first I've heard of Ep 9 and the Boba Fett story. I wasn't even sure that one was going to happen after the supposed failure of Solo.

I love how they describe Episode 9 as "highly anticipated." I think "cautiously anticipated" is more accurate - at least for me. Jedi: Fallen Order sounds interesting though. I wonder if there will be any associated LEGO sets as there were for Battlefront?

Excited for the Mandolorian (hopefully) sets. Now let’s see some more good Episode III sets...

Even though I won't go see IX (btw does anyone know why the title has not been announced yet?), I hope the associated Lego sets are good and the prices fair. More on the side of 75200 and 75202 and less 75177 and 75201.

As for the Mandalorian sets, I'm crossing my fingers - It'd be a dream come true if those included lots of classic alien molds! (Twi'lek, Ithorian, Devaronian, Bith, Aqualish, Shistavanen, Chadra-Fan, maybe even Bothans) - Since the series supposedly takes place on the fringe, I'd say the odds aren't too bad.

Cool! Can’t wait. Hopefully there will be cool sw sets out of it. @Ephseb I don’t know personally, but Disney might do the same thing as in the Avengers:End game trailer.

@ra226: The Mandalorian isn’t a Boba Fett story. It’s a TV show that’ll be on Disney’s streaming service, and it’s not featuring Fett, it’s featuring a brand new Mandalorian character.

Awesome! I hope we can expect at least a few sets from both The Mandalorian and Fallen Order.

I will most likely buy and enjoy Jedi Fallen Order and see Ep IX but I will only buy sets from the game and maybe The Mandalorian.

Brand fatigue. Too much Star Wars.

Ironic how out of the 3, Episode IX is the one I care the least. Oh Disney, what have you done...

Oh dear. Haven’t Disney learnt yet that over saturation of merch is not a good business model? Should be plenty of reduced price tat on sale just in time for Christmas

Yeeaaahhhh, I agree that Star wars just doesn't get me excited any more, the very odd set here and there but just tired of Disney, I'm spending more and more on other themes.

I don’t despise the sequel trilogy like most fanboys but i’m still more interested in the Mandalorian and Fallen Order than Episode IX. Hope we’ll see some sets from each of them in some form or another.

Any news yet on whether the UK is going to be able to access the Mandalorian at all? I heard we might not even be able to buy into the (likely extortionate) Disney+ platform until 2020?

We know next to nothing about ANY of these three projects so it's hard to get excited about a triple product launch for any of them. The announcement of a merchandising event with no information on the media the merchandise is based on is a tired trend at Lucasfilm.

This is exciting news! Besides this I hope they make some more Star Wars Rebels Sets like a Tie Interceptor, Tie Defender or even a Hammerhead Corvette.

Exciting stuff, can't wait for all these projects and their LEGO interactions this autumn. Hopefully uk will be able to access disney+ unlike DCuniverse.

If this means triple VIP points, then I'll be getting 150 VIP points for this years SW Advent Calendar :)

First they announced the 20th anniversary sets and now this, it is going to be a very expensive year for me!

with the mandalorian, it will hopefully bring out more uniquely shaped starships like the Slave 1.. cheaper and swooshable vehicles would be better play feature for children rather than milking from AFOL.
