May the 4th 2017 sales & deals from the LEGO Shop [News]

The LEGO Shop is holding its annual May the 4th “Star Wars Day” sales event, starting at midnight EDT Thursday, May the 4th (9 PM PDT Wednesday, May the 3rd) through Sunday, May 7th. Several LEGO Star Wars sets are on sale, with a free R2-D2 mini-set (on orders over $50), and double VIP points to maximize your savings. The R2-D2 figure is larger than the standard minifig, with a number of unique printed elements.

With the freebie and double VIP points, this might be a good time to pick up the new 75144 UCS Snowspeeder released today, which we reviewed a few weeks ago. The set includes 1,703 pieces and two Rebel pilot minifigs, retailing for $199.99.

Several other LEGO Star Wars sets are 20% off, including 75155 Rebel U-Wing Fighter, discounted from $79.99 to $63.99. If you’re not sure how awesome this set from Rogue One is, you can read our review.
