[US] LEGO S@H/Store - Official May 3rd/4th Announcement

Postby that guy » Fri Apr 22, 2011 5:09 pm

I got the official post card from Lego today for the May 3rd/4th promotions. Here's what it lists:
1. FREE LEGO Shadow Arf Trooper with $75 purchase
2. FREE LEGO Star Wars poster with all purchases
3. Automatic Entry to win a 1st edition UCS Falcon
4. (Here's the vague part as usual) Exclusive sales and deal, including free shipping on $75 orders.

While most of this isn't a great shock to any of us, I thought I throw this up since they sent out the cards... I can't wait to see what sets go on sale however..... XD

Is this in-store as well? Or just lego.com?

And just to clarify - that's a free Shadow Arf Trooper with a $75 *Star Wars* purchase, right?

I can't recall - are the summer Star Wars sets usually out by the May 4th event?

As far as I was tracking it is a $75.00 Star Wars purchase to get the figure, which sucks since I have most of all the sets. I believe the summer line comes out in June, probably just in time for Lego Star Wars Days at Legoland. I would take May though, if they decided to release early, although doubtful. I just can't wait for the UCS SSD to come out this fall.

Should be anywhere that LEGO has a country specific S@H site, so Canada, UK, various other countries in the EU, etc. Last year (I think) some lucky Canadians benefited from a pricing mistake on LEGO's part - instead of 25% off the UCS Falcon price, they got it for 25% of the MSRP. :shock: for them, :facepalm: for TLG. I'll bet somebody got fired or demoted for that one.

I ordered 8 UCS Falcon but only got 2 at that price. I won't complain!

Any speculation or information as to what sets will be on sale and for how much?

It's an elite trooper specifically and extensively trained to covertly pick up doggy (or Ewok, we don't know for sure, since it's classified) doodoo in parks all around the Republic. Arf arf arf.

A gimmick to try to get people to spend $75 on LEGO so they can get a minifigure of a character they've never heard of before.

Obviously. ;)

Sigh...he's right. :'( And it's totally going to work on me because I'm quite sheep-like. :facepalm:

Yea, I took advantage of that and ordered one, while my brother ordered the other. It was amazing.

Don't rub it in. I was working until 11pm that night, and when I came home I thought "I should check out the sale". I then said to myself, "Nah, the deals will still be on in the morning".

:facepalm: to me, XD to those who got the deals.

I wonder what this year will hold, though. Hopefully some great deals. I still don't have the dropship or the UCS shuttle.

I too am hoping for a repeat of last years "mistake" but I would be floored if that kind of thing happened again. Here's hoping for a $75 Death Star! XD

I got in on that sweeeeeeet deal too last year. Got me a UCS Falcon (which I never would have bought otherwise) and a Dropship for about the third of the regular price of the Falcon.

I'm not expecting that a similar mistake will be made again this year, but who knows? So you can be sure I'll be on LEGO's website at Midnight this year again.

Is it Midnight Eastern Time (US) or is it Midnight Greenwich Mean time? When does this sale go live?

It would be definetly nice to have an idea on what time it goes up.

I don't want to wake up in the morning and see it's all gone, like I have a few times. It's depressing, really.

Cheers
