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.

Discounts vary from 28% to 50%, all currently a better saving than LEGO themselves are offering.
Star Wars The Last Jedi 75179 Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter £54.99 (27% discount)
The set retails for $24.99 and includes 4 minifigures with 231 pieces. We hope that LEGO makes sufficient quantities for everyone to have this lovely little set, but based on the frustratingly limited availability of highly anticipated sets like 21110 Research Institute, 21309 Apollo Saturn V, and 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon, we’re forced to expect limited availability ahead of the holiday season.

Presumably in advance of the impending release of summer 2017 LEGO Star Wars sets, Amazon.com is heavily discounting a number of sets from The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and Rebels.
75148 Encounter on Jakku from The Force Awakens is a whopping 40% off, listed at only $35.76 (down from $60). This is the only set so far that includes Unkar Plutt, and the Luggabeast with Teedo is definitely the highlight of the set.
75154 TIE Striker from Rogue One is 34% off $45.88. We thought this set wasn’t worth the full $70 price tag when we reviewed the LEGO TIE Striker, but this is definitely a much more palatable price for 543 pieces.
