Force Friday II is upon us. Today, September 1, is the day that all of the new Star Wars merchandise comes out in preparation for the upcoming 8th installment of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi. There is an enormous amount of merchandise coming out, but I will focus on the new LEGO Star Wars sets and a few other notable Deals.
LEGO Star Wars Assault on Hoth 75098 Star Wars Toy (2144 pieces). This set features many vignettes together in one large set and is great for those who haven’t collected the previous Hoth sets.
The LEGO Star Wars First Order Star Destroyer 75190 Building Kit . At 1416 pieces, this is the largest non-UCS Star Destroyer released. The set includes 5 minifigures: Supreme Leader Snoke, First Order Officer, First Order Stormtrooper Sergeant, First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Shuttle Pilot, BB-9E and buildable Medical Droid figures
