When bricking your console is a good thing
Xbox is also getting into the May The Fourth spirit today with their own Star Wars promotion. Microsoft is hosting a sweepstakes giveaway to hand out 12 consoles, featuring 12 iconic Star Wars characters in Lego form.
The collaboration between Xbox and the Lego Group sees 12 Xbox Series S consoles come together, with art inspired by TT Games’ recent Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. They include custom designs for both the Xbox Series S and corresponding controller.
The twelve consoles feature BB-8, Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, Finn, Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Rey, Yoda, and a Stormtrooper.
May the Force be with you.

These are not the Xboxes you’re looking for
The designs are pretty sweet, especially on the Xbox Series S. I’m not even a huge Boba Fett fan, but his colors on that Series S look rad.
Star Wars festivities are continuing around the gaming sphere, as TT Games itself released some new DLC today for Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. One pack, from The Mandalorian Season 2, features Clone Wars hero Ahsoka Tano and the aforementioned bounty hunter Boba Fett. The other pack contains The Bad Batch, a series I’m admittedly less familiar with. Sadly, Ahsoka didn’t get her own custom Lego Star Wars Xbox Series S this time around.
Plenty of other Star Wars games are in the works, too. Electronic Arts and Respawn have got a bundle of new projects on the way, Quantic Dream is working on Eclipse, and longtime Star Wars remaster and port studio Aspyr is putting together a Knights of the Old Republic remake. Even if you don’t manage to snag a special Lego Star Wars Xbox, there’s still plenty of Star Wars on the way.
