LEGO released a number of new sets this week, most likely to spread out orders and minimize any issues with their website at the beginning of next month. May is always a big month for LEGO because of all the specials they offer on Star Wars Day (May the 4th). Below, we will discuss all the newly released sets, as well as what to look forward to on Star Wars Day.
NEW LEGO STAR WARS SETS – Three new LEGO Star Wars sets are now available; the #75304 LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet, the #75305 LEGO Star Wars Scout Trooper Helmet, and the #75306 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Probe Droid. We talked about these sets previously at New LEGO Star Wars Helmets & Probe Droid Coming! You can find them at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
NEW LEGO DC COMICS SETS – Three new LEGO Batman sets are also now available; the #76180 LEGO Batman vs. The Joker – Batmobile Chase, the #76182 LEGO Batman Cowl, and the #76188 LEGO Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile. You can find them at the LEGO DC Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.
NEW LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES SETS – The #76187 LEGO Venom bust we talked about the other day (see: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Venom Review), and the #76198 LEGO Spider-Man & Doctor Octopus Mech Battle sets are now available at the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Coyote, Porky Pig, Petunia Pig, Speedy Gonzales, Tasmanian Devil, and Marvin the Martian.You can find them at the LEGO Minifigures section of the Online LEGO Shop.
FREE LEGO DOTS SET – It’s also worth nothing that the current freebie is the #30556 LEGO DOTS Mini Frame, which you can get with purchases of $35 or more until May 9th, or while supplies last. This offer is valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
LEGO STAR WARS DAY SPECIALS – May the 4th is the biggest day for Star Wars fans, and LEGO always participates in the event by offering specials. This year, you will get Double VIP Points on all LEGO Star Wars purchases. You will also get a free #40451 LEGO Star Wars Tatooine Homestead set with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $85 or more. If you live near an official LEGO store, you will also get a #30388 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle set with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $40 or more. All of these specials are valid May 1-5 while supplies last. There is also a sweepstake running for LEGO VIP members May 1-21 for a one-of-a-kind Jon “Dutch” Vander minifigure and print. Details of this event should be available at the LEGO VIP page any day now. For more information, visit the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
LEGO STAR WARS R2-D2 COMING – And of course, we will get a new big LEGO Star Wars set to celebrate Star Wars Day. This year, it is the #75308 LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 buildable droid with 2,314 pieces, and measuring over 12.5 in. (31 cm) high, 7.5 in. (20 cm) wide, and 6 in. (15 cm) deep for the price of $199.99. We talked about this set in detail at LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 Coming Soon! It will be available starting on May 1st at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
If you’re planning to get any of the new non-Star Wars sets, it’s probably better to get them now before Star Wars fans take over the website in May. If you are planning to purchase any of the new (or older) LEGO Star Wars sets, you may want to wait until the May the 4th specials are available and hope that the Force is with you.
