May is especially exciting for LEGO Star Wars fans because of the Star Wars Day specials and the new LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series set, and there are also other new LEGO sets to check out. So let’s take a look at what’s new this month.
LEGO STAR WARS PROMOTION #1: Promotions for LEGO Star Wars fans include the #40531 LEGO Star Wars Lars Family Homestead Kitchen, free with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $160 or more. The set comes with 195 pieces and features Beru Lars in the family kitchen. The kitchen itself is nicely detailed with a counter, shelves, and various kitchen accessories. The carton of blue milk is another nice touch. To take advantage of this special, visit the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
LEGO STAR WARS PROMOTION #2: The second freebie is the #5007403 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Beskar Keychain available for LEGO VIP members with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $70 or more. This is actually a really impressive piece, made of a substantial and heavy metal to resemble a block of Beskar with the Mandalorian emblem stamped on one side and the LEGO Star Wars logo and LEGO VIP logo stamped on the other side. Beskar is a metal alloy also known as Mandalorian iron or Mandalorian steel and is used to make Mandalorian armor in the Star Wars saga. The keyring and chain are darkened to match the piece, and the whole thing is presented in a nice display box with a foam insert. This is a beautiful collectible, that I think even casual Star Wars fans will appreciate. If you would like to get one, visit the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
LEGO STAR WARS PROMOTION #3: The third freebie for LEGO Star Wars fans is the #30495 LEGO Star Wars AT-ST polybag. It’s available with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $40 or more at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
NEW LEGO STAR WARS UCS SET: The new LEGO Star Ultimate Collector Series set that will be available starting on May 4th, is the #75341 LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder. We talked about the set already (see: LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker Landspeeder Coming!), but to recap, this is a highly detailed version of the iconic vehicle, measuring over 19 in. (49 cm) long, and comes with a display stand for the hover effect. It is complemented by a plaque showing X-34 Landspeeder technical data, and two LEGO minifigures: Luke Skywalker with a lightsaber and electrobinoculars, and C-3PO with a new-for-May-2022 decoration. The set comes with 1,890 pieces and the price is $199.99. Although the set won’t be available until May the 4th, it is already listed at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
NEW LEGO BOTANICAL COLLECTION SETS: The beautiful LEGO Botanical collection just got two new additions; the #10309 LEGO Botanical Collection Succulents, and the #10311 LEGO Botanical Collection Orchid.
