Happy LEGO Star Wars Day & weekend!

Today is Star Wars Day, so “May the Fourth be with you”! And it’s not just any Star Wars day, but it is also the 40th anniversary of the beloved sci-fi saga that so many of us grew up on. If you are a Star Wars fan, you may want to do something special today, like participate in the many Star Wars related events organized around the world, or celebrate with family and friends by re-watching the episodes and drinking some blue milk! Check the official Star Wars website for events and ideas. 🙂

If you are both a Star Wars and LEGO fan, you have even more fun things to do! LEGO always participates in Star Wars Day by holding special events at official LEGO stores, releasing new sets, and running special sales and promotions. We already talked about some of these events at the beginning of the month, but I thought to recap them here for your information and convenience.

FREE LEGO STAR WARS R2-D2 SET: Between May 4-7th, you will get a free #30611 LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 polybag with any LEGO Star Wars purchase of $50 or more. This is a really nice brick-built version of R2-D2 with some unique printed pieces that collectors will love to have, and it’s a great little model overall. You can check out all the sets under the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO STAR WARS DOUBLE VIP POINTS & SALES: Also, for the rest of the week, between May 4-7th, LEGO VIP members will earn Double VIP Points on all LEGO Star Wars purchases both at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO STAR WARS ITEMS ON SALE: Some LEGO Star Wars items are going to be on sale during the May the 4th weekend, so make sure you check the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO STAR WARS BONUS VIP POINTS: During entire the month of May, you will also earn Double VIP Points on two LEGO Star Wars sets; the #75171 LEGO Star Wars Battle on Scarif, and the #75172 LEGO Star Wars Y-wing Starfighter. If you have been eyeing these sets, this is an excellent time to pick them up. They are both available at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO STAR WARS UCS SNOWSPEEDER: And of course, no Star Wars Day would be complete without a new LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series set. The #75144 LEGO Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder is the latest addition to the list of advanced LEGO Star Wars models. You can find it under the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO STAR WARS STORE EVENTS: Besides the LEGO Star Wars promotions and the new LEGO Star Wars UCS set, there are also some special events at official LEGO stores. All three of the activities mentioned here are restricted to ages 6-14. The first event runs from April 24-June 25th, where kids can take part in the Rebel Alliance by building vehicles, aircrafts or droids for the LEGO Star Wars Rebel Base Camp at their local LEGO store. By taking a photo of their creation and uploading it to the LEGO Life mobile app, kids will also receive wearable Yoda ears (while supplies last). Today, May 4th there are two events. All day kids can come in dressed as their favorite Star Wars character, and complete the search and find activity to earn wearable Yoda ears. At 5 PM there is going to be a minifigure speed build challenge with the fastest builder getting a free minifigure. This activity may require prior registration, so make sure you check with your store.

If you have been waiting to pick up some of the latest LEGO Star Wars sets, or even earlier releases, this is a great time to get them. You might consider the updated #75159 LEGO Star Wars Death Star which is both an impressive display-piece and an excellent play-set, the #75105 LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon, the #75098 LEGO Star Wars Assault on Hoth, the excellently designed and very popular #75060 LEGO Star Wars Slave I, the #75095 LEGO Star Wars TIE Figher, some of the sets related to the new films, the large buildable characters, or many of the smaller sets available at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

And if you already have some LEGO Star Wars sets, you might consider dusting them off for some playtime, rebuilding them, or even adding some upgrades while watching the episodes. There is plenty of ways to have fun on this special day, so feel free to geek out! 😀

    May the fourth be with you! I’m off to fight the Empire and see what STAR WARS LEGO sets I can rescue from the dark side.

    Happy May the 4th!!! I’m at school right now…but that doesn’t stop me!! I wearing a star wars shirt, and one of my pins!!! The other I let my brother borrow because they wear uniform and he can’t wear his shirt.😁

    • admin May 4, 2017, 1:49 PM

      Awesome! I hope your school cafeteria serves blue milk today! 🙄

    Dropped a few hundred on UCS snowspeeder, uwing, and krennics shuttle. Great deals… did three separate orders so I’ll get 3xR2d2s!!!!

    My plan changed ( again). I bought Encouner on Jakku ( it was on sale for $47.00, cheaper than $60.00) and Yoda’s Jedi- star fighter. I had a little money left over and so I bought two packs of the next mini fig series ( don ‘t know who I have yet ) . Now, I am watching a STAR WARS marathon all six movies ( I know theirs eight , but there just showing the six.)

    • admin May 4, 2017, 4:55 PM

      I was thinking of you when I saw the price-drop on the Jakku set this morning, as I know that was one that you were interested in. I’m glad you were able to get it. Yoda’s star fighter is another great choice. Enjoy the movies! I hope you have enough popcorn for all six! 😀

    Two mini figs Highway man ( the mystery mini fig) and the space guy or space hero? The force was strong with me. I hope you ( Admin) and the rest of my fellow LEGO/STAR WARS fans have a great rest of the day. Soon the shroud of darkness will fall and tomorrow will be May 5th. ( at least it will be Friday.) OH! Cinco de Mayo .Taco’s after STAR WARS sounds good to me.

    • Ninjagofan May 4, 2017, 8:58 PM

      And guardians of the galaxy vol.2 is coming out!!!

      • Ninjagofan May 4, 2017, 8:58 PM


        • admin May 4, 2017, 10:04 PM

          Too much awesomeness this month. Can we handle it? 🙄

    • admin May 4, 2017, 10:03 PM

      You got a Highway Man? That’s an awesome find! And the Retro Space Guy is one of my favorites. Taco is fine with me too, as long as it is vegetarian. 😀

  • Legostuff71 May 4, 2017, 9:39 PM

    I always thought that the Guardians of the Galaxy can be mixed into the STAR WARS universe. ( bounty hunters/ rebels). What do you think ?

    • admin May 4, 2017, 10:05 PM

      Sure, why not. Star Wars is already such a mishmash of everything and everybody in the galaxy. 😈
