Reminder: The Empire Strikes Out DVD Will Be Released Soon

Postby Staff » Sun Mar 17, 2013 12:03 am





Just a friendly reminder that the follow-up to Lego Star Wars: The Padawan Menace, The Empire Strikes Out is being released across the pond in the UK tomorrow March 18. For us here in the colonies, the US release date is set for March 26th, Canada too. If you can get past continuity issues and you enjoyed Padawan Menace, you'll like this one as well:


Your favorite characters are back to save the galaxy in LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance including heroic Luke Skywalker, swaggering Han Solo and steadfast Princess Leia have no time to celebrate their victory over the Empire as a new Imperial threat arises. But as Jedi-in-training Luke embarks on this next mission, he discovers that his celebrity status as a "Death-Star-Blower-Upper" can be a double-edged lightsaber when he's constantly mobbed by crazed fans. So much for secret missions! Meanwhile, Darth Vader and Darth Maul are locked in a hilarious "Sith-ling" rivalry as they compete for the Emperor's approval. It's an action-packed comic adventure that's out of this world!


Unfortunately for Blu-ray collectors, there is no Blu-ray edition of the show, which is really, really odd. I mean, why not just release it on Laser Disc or Betamax to really push the annoyance factor up? But you do get a medal ceremony Darth Vader exclusive minifigure to make up for it.

Really, really annoys me that it's not getting a Blu-ray release. I can't figure that one out. :-/

Plus it's only $8, right? That's good at least, cheap fig.
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

Not as annoying and inexplicable as the last one getting no DVD-only release. Y'know, given that the vast majority of consumers still don't use Blu-Ray. ;)

I don't even really know what this is but I saw it at my work today (Future Shop in Canada) and saw that it comes with an exclusive Darth Vader figure and it was only $6.99 so I bought one! If it was like $20 I would have definitely given it a pass but for that price you can't lose.
