The LEGO Shop‘s sales & deals for May the Fourth 2018 are now online, revealing plenty to make the credits burn a hole in every LEGO Star Wars fan’s pockets. As we noted in our review of 75181 UCS Y-wing Starfighter earlier today, the new UCS set’s launch is the centerpiece for the May the Fourth event. Similarly, all LEGO Star Wars purchases over $75 qualify for a free 40288 BB-8 polybag to go with your R2-D2 from last year. VIP Black Card holders (those who’ve purchased a UCS Millennium Falcon) can use a special code LEGO sent via email to get a Y-wing blueprint with purchases over $35.
Our friends over at Citizen Brick are hosting their annual “CB Day” event this Saturday, May 5th. The Citizen Brick team sells off its inventory of one-off, non-production pieces to whomever can get online and grab them the quickest. The first batch of new stuff goes online at 9:00 AM CST, with more pieces available every two hours until 3:00 PM CST. Protip: Submit each order as you find a cool item, and the CB team will consolidate all your orders at the end of the day.
Full disclosure: Citizen Brick is an advertising partner of The Brothers Brick. However, our advertisers have no influence over The Brothers Brick’s news coverage.
The promotional freebie from the LEGO Store for April 2018 is a Minifigure Factory (set number 5005358). The giveaway includes a LEGO factory worker, along with five micro-figures depicting classic LEGO themes. Orders over $75 are eligible, and the promotion runs from April 1st through April 20th (when the next wave of LEGO Star Wars sets from Solo hit stores), or until supplies run out.
The micro-figures include the original police officer from 1978, a LEGO Pirates fig with a striped shirt, a blue Classic Space fig, a Ninjago character called Pixel Rebooted, and a doctor from LEGO City.
The largest LEGO set of all time, 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon is available again from Amazon.com at the retail price of $799.99 (it has been available from third-party sellers at much higher prices for some time). You can purchase the set now, and it will ship once Amazon gets it back into stock. This availability may only last a few hours at most, so we strongly recommend that you act quickly if you want to pick up this highly sought-after set.
The LEGO Shop online has launched their third major gift with purchase in February, offering this cute, brick-built Shiba-inu in honor of the Lunar New Year. 40235 Year of the Dog is free with orders of $88 or more, a nod that the number 8 is considered to be the luckiest in China and other parts of Asia.
Today only, February 14 make any order of $20 or more, and a beautiful free 30404 LEGO Friends Sunflower set will be automatically added to your shopping bag. This Valentine’s Day freebie is available only at LEGO® Stores and shop.LEGO.com, while supplies last. Can you imagine a better source of yellow and orange slopes than this cute promotional set?
Starting today, LEGO IDEAS 21313 Ship in a Bottle is available at your local LEGO Store and the LEGO Shop online for $69.99. We predict this set will be a popular one, so we are hoping LEGO has the appropriate amount in stock to handle demand.
For larger orders of $125 or more, the promotional set 40290 60 Years of the LEGO Brick is still available from the LEGO Shop, so this is a great opportunity to get both amazing sets if you haven’t already.
