Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens (13)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has currently made the kind of cash that was last seen in The Wolf of Wall Street. Cash generated not only from ticket sales, but moichendisin’ as well. That’s where the true power of Star Wars has always been, in a merchandising arm that is more powerful than a fleet of gold-plated Death Stars.

So it’s not exactly surprising to hear that a LEGO adaptation of the Force Awakens is on the way. Thanks to the Xbox store prematurely listing LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the cat is out of the bag. Why would you put a cat in a bag? That’s terrible man. Anyway, here’s the official synopsis and a bunch of screens for you to peruse through, before the actual official announcement at 4PM today. You snooze, you lose:

The Force is strong with this one…The No.1 LEGO video game franchise triumphantly returns with a fun-filled humorous journey based on the blockbuster Star Wars film. Play as Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Han Solo and the rest of your favourite characters from the movie! In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, players relive the epic action from the blockbuster Star Wars : The Force Awakens film, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens.

The game will also feature exclusive playable content that bridges the gap between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens also introduces Multi-Builds and Blaster Battles to the LEGO video game universe. With Multi-Builds, use available LEGO bricks to open up new paths, then break them apart and build them again to open up another!

During Blaster Battles, use your surroundings as cover to stand against the First Order.

Sounds fun, and actually different. Of course, it’ll most likely be almost exactly the same as other LEGO games. Which isn’t actually a bad thing, as The Force Awakens is almost exactly the same as the first Star Wars film. Current release date for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens says 28 June of this year. To infinity and beyond then.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Seeing that makes me realise how short Marky Mark is. He’s a scowling little action figure.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Maybe it’s time for them to LEGO?

    • Hammersteyn

      Nah, look out for Deadpool LEGO, Civil War LEGO, Kung Fu Panda 3 LEGO, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice LEGO, X-Men: Apocalypse LEGO, etc.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        At least they could spoof the titles. LEGOpool, Captain LEGO: Civil War, LEGO Panda, Batman v Superman: LEGO of Justice, X-Men: LEGOpocalypse.

  • DragonSpirit009

    Maybe… just maybe I should try a Lego game.

  • Do you get to play as Worf?

  • VampyreSquirrel

    They’re going to battle to create a FULL Lego game out of one movie.
    Look at Lego The Hobbit, it doesn’t include the second movie (and apparently never will), and feels
    half arsed.

    • Hammersteyn

      Lego is like movie based games but they get a pass because it’s lego and supposed to be for kids and that’s why all the silly comedy

      • VampyreSquirrel

        Yeah, but I’m not a kid, and don’t want a half arsed game. Lego Star Wars included 3 movies in the game… Lego Star Wars 2 was another 3… Lego Star Wars 3 was 2 seasons of a series.
