This year, for Star Wars May the Fourth weekend, LEGO suggest hopping into A-wing cockpit to take part in the Death Star battle. The upcoming promotional set revealed today, 40407 Death Star II Battle, depicts a couple of tiny Star Wars fighters swooshing by the turrets of the Empire’s notorious space base. The set will be available for free with the qualifying Star Wars purchases over $75 during May 1-4. Featuring a tiny copy of the iconic A-wing, this promotional set is a perfect gift with the purchase of the latest UCS 75275 A-wing Starfighter set revealed last week.
Hot on the heels of some great LEGO deals on Amazon.com ahead of Prime day, LEGO has rolled out their Christmas in July sale, where you can get set 40292 Buildable Holiday Present free with purchases over $99. From July 12th until July 14th LEGO will also be offering a daily deal, with today’s being 30% off on the Creator Pirate Rollercoaster. Multiple other sets are also being offered at 20% off, including the Ninjago Movie Destiny’s Bounty, and the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon.
Click the image above to see all of the sets on sale, and as usual, using these links to purchase sets will provide The Brothers Brick with a small commission to help support the site and the events and contests we sponsor, such as our current Stranger Things LEGO contest where you could win a copy of The Upside Down!
You can now own and build the largest dinosaur ever created in a LEGO set. 75936 Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage is now available to LEGO VIP members for US $249.99 | CAN $299.99 | UK £219.99. LEGO VIP membership is free, but if you don’t want LEGO perks and the occasional free set with purchase, this terrific Tyrannosaurus will be generally available beginning July 1st.
Also the LEGO Ideas 40335 Space Rocket Ride promotion we reviewed a few weeks ago is now available with purchases more than $99 through the end of the month, so the behemoth Jurassic Park set certainly qualifies. Too bad the dinosaur can’t fit on the space ship…
LEGO has revealed one of the upcoming promotions for Star Wars May the Fourth weekend as the frosty 40333 Battle of Hoth. The small LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary set comes with 195 pieces and a printed anniversary tile. The set will be available for free with Star Wars purchases of $75 US / £75 UK from May 3-6. Other May the Fourth offers depend on location and could include double VIP points on Star Wars sets, certain sets on sale, a poster and a small polybag set as an additional gift with purchase.
40333 Battle of Hoth is the second exclusive/promotional set to receive the anniversary logo following 75227 Darth Vader Bust, though this one will be more widely available. The set features a unique brick-built platform and micro-versions of an AT-AT Walker, Snowspeeder, and Rebel shield generator.
Back in December, LEGO Stores in the US and Canada launched a Star Wars box promotion that featured 5 rare polybags. Earlier this month, it became available in the UK and select European countries, where it was again marketed as a Star Wars Mystery Box. (Specifically, the countries included Great Britain, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Germany, France, and Belgium.) While both region-locked promotions are over, we’re here to have a quick look at what we found inside, though it should be noted that not all the boxes are the same. What’s in the box? Is it worth it? Let’s take a quick look first at what we found in our box and the promotion details.
Details on both regions’ promotions can be found here in our news announcements for the US and Canada (promotion period December 2018) and the UK and select EU countries announcement (promotion period 11 April – 15 April 2019)
