Were you fast enough to grab a free Star Wars Google Cardboard?

Google held an impromptu giveaway of its Star Wars themed Cardboards this morning, but unfortunately, it didn’t take long for them to be ‘sold out’.

Themed up to look like Darth Vader, R2-D2, BB-8 and a Stormtrooper, these Google Cardboards landed alongside the first Jakku Spy VR clip on the Star Wars app two weeks ago, but only for US Verizon customers.

Google opened up the giveaway this morning, announcing on Twitter, “These are the droids you’re looking for. @starwars Cardboard now available on @GoogleStore.”

They were sold out in about an hour after tweeting.

Google’s giveaway was only available to those in the US, and you could only order one per customer. Those lucky enough to order one also got free shipping.

Of course, Google may restock the Star Wars-themed Cardboard again soon, so we recommend keeping an eye out here if you really want one, or tweeting your demand for one to Google and hoping they listen.

Meanwhile, there’s only a week left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters.
