LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (40288) May the 4th Promotion Clarification

LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (40288)

Next week is the LEGO Star Wars May the 4th event and there’s some clarification of the availability of the BB-8 (40288) polybag on the Shop@Home header. If you’ve received the spring catalog, the flyer for the promotion shows that the BB-8 polybag was only available on May 4. According to Shop@Home, the promo will now run through the whole weekend, while supplies last, which is good because not everyone may have time to do their shopping on that specific day and will be happy to know that they have some time to make their purchases. Some of the other promotions during the LEGO Star Wars May the 4th event include:

– Double VIP ponts on most Star Wars items.
– Select sale items.
– Porg in-store Make and Take build

LEGO Star Wars May the 4th 2018 Promotions Revealed

LEGO Star Wars May the 4th 2018 Promos

The new LEGO catalogs have started to show up in mailboxes and it shows some of the promotions we can expect to see during the LEGO Star Wars May the 4th event that is happening from May 4-6. As I stated before, LEGO has not revealed the May 2018 Store Calendar to keep the promotions a secret but the cat is out of the bag now. Let’s go over the promos, shall we?

As you can see from the image above provided to me by Jeff on Twitter, the main promotion is the LEGO Star Wars Mini BB-8 polybag with a purchase of $75 or more on May 4th only. This is the building version of the character which is similar to what we got last year with R2-D2.

We can also get Double VIP Points during the whole promotional period which is expected.

There will be select LEGO Star Wars items on sale at LEGO Brand Stores and on Shop@Home including Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter.

Finally, the recently revealed UCS Y-Wing (75181) will be available for purchase for $199.99.

LEGO Star Wars May the 4th BB-8 Promotion Rumor

We’re already a few days into April but you may have noticed that there’s no May 2018 LEGO Store Calendar that I usually report on at the beginning of the month. That’s because LEGO is keeping it under wraps for now for surprise promotions for the LEGO Star Wars May the 4th event however there are already rumors of what one of the promotions will be. Word has it that BB-8 may be the polybag that will be given out as a gift with purchase and the size would be similar to R2-D2 (30611) from last year. The build would be similar to the BB-8 from the Bricktober 2017 event last year but with printed parts. Stay tuned as we get closer to May for any reveals.


LEGO Star Wars 2017 May the 4th R2-D2 (30611) Polybag Sold Out Online

LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 (30611)

It looks like the exclusive 2017 May the 4th LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 (30611) polybag is now out of stock over on Shop@Home. It didn’t make it past the whole promotional event period online but some stores may still have them available. If you weren’t able to get one online but have a store close to you, I suggest calling your store to see if they have any left over. If you decide to just buy the polybag outright, they are available on eBay.

LEGO Star Wars Toys R Us May the 4th Princess Leia Review

LEGO Star Wars Toys R Us May the 4th Princess Leia

Today was the LEGO Star Wars May the 4th event at Toys R Us in which participants could build Princess Leia. I’m on vacation but was able to attend the TRU here and build her. The set is very simple with no exclusive parts so you can easily build her. I do like that 33291 brown flower pieces are used for her hair buns instead of 1×1 stud pieces.

I must say that the Princess Leia build is actually pretty bad compared to other TRU builds that they’ve done before especially for the Star Wars 40th anniversary. The event itself, however, was very organized. As a reader said before, the intent was there but was poorly executed.


LEGO Star Wars May the 4th 2017 Promotion Begins

The LEGO Star Wars May the 4th promotion is now live on Shop@Home. The main promotions during the event is the R2-D2 (30611) polybag with purchases of $50 or more. You can also get double VIP points on LEGO Star Wars purchases.

The UCS Snowspeeder (75144) will also be available for purchase for $199.99 which you also get double points for. You can check out my review of the set here.

There are also a number of LEGO Star Wars products that are 20% off the normal price.

The promotional event runs until May 7. You can help support The Brick Fan by making your purchases with the links above.


LEGO May the 4th In-Store Event

As stated on the May 2017 LEGO Store Calendar, there will be some in-store events that will be held during the May the 4th promotion. Thanks to a reader, we now know what kind of events that will be going on that day. From what I’m told, there will be a speed building event for kids age 6-14 and the fastest builders will get the Darth Revan (5002123) minifgure polybag while all participants will get the Hoth Han Solo (5001621) minifigure polybag, while supplies last. As LEGO Star Wars collectors know by now, the Darth Revan minifigure is highly coveted and it’s cool that kids have a chance to get this minifigure again.

Thanks to Roger for the message.
