You could say that I’m a big fan of Star Wars, but that might be a bit of an understatement. I LOVES ME some Star Wars, and I have ever since I first saw “Star Wars” (now Episode IV) in the theatre as a kid. And while some people may think that things have gone a little Spaceballs with the *Merchandising!* that accompanied the release of Episode VII, there is more than a little joy in my heart to see new Star Wars stories told on screens of all sizes.
So, when Disney asked me if I wanted to host a giveaway for the latest offering–LEGO® STAR WARS: Droid Tales–I was all in. Over the winter holiday break, I helped dd put together the LEGO® version of Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle and it was SO much fun. I just really adore the pairing of LEGO® and Star Wars.
And now, the fun stuff: Who wants to win a copy of this fine show on DVD?
The story starts up just after the end of Episode VI (Return of the Jedi), with the celebration on Endor. As so often happens with the droids, hijinks ensue and–instead of just telling the story of what led up to Episode I (The Phantom Menace)–the droids end up giving their version of the entire saga from Episode I through Episode VI.
Here’s a clip, to get you started:
Details for the giveaway:
Disney has ponied up FIVE copies of LEGO® STAR WARS: Droid Tales on DVD! Each DVD comes with an exclusive set of trading cards, so there’s even more collectibility baked into each item. Enter using the Rafflecopter below. Oh, and please: U.S. Residents ONLY.* I’ll notify winners very soon after the giveaway ends, and each winner will have three days to respond with their mailing address so I can get it to Disney for fulfillment.
*The U.S. resident requirement is related to the fact that I’m trying to avoid any potential Customs issues. Please know that I love my fellow global residents, and please don’t take it personally. Not all of us think that we need to build walls.
