May The Fourth Be With You Promotion

Postby Staff » Mon May 02, 2011 1:28 pm


Shadow ARF Trooper


... which actually starts May 3rd, which is kind of odd if you ask me. Why not start May 4th and continue to May 5th?

Anyways, got the official word about LEGO [email protected]'s promotions for the unofficial Star Wars Day quasi-holiday.

First up is a FREE exclusive Shadow ARF Trooper minifigure with a purchase of $75 or more in LEGO Star Wars products from LEGO [email protected] or LEGO Brand Retail. You'll also score FREE shipping if you shop online.

Next is a FREE LEGO Star Wars poster commemorating 10 years of LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector sets, picture below.

And the rumors were true: for North American customers only, with every purchase, you'll automatically be entered in a drawing for a 1st Edition 10179 Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon. The 1st edition run came with a numbered certificate.

You get 10% off these sets:



and 20% off these:


May the force be with you. And may your wallets and spouses forgive you.

Thanks for posting.

Am I alone in feeling underwhelmed by these 'deals'? [well, me and 'that guy']
  • The UCS ship was on sale for a bit lower last winter:
    viewtopic.php?f=28&t=4999
  • amazon had the Tantive IV for 30% off close to Christmas (net savings after discount and bogo50%)
  • and I recall walmart had the drop-ship on sale too... (but can't recall the deal)

The past two years were so great (rogue shadow in 2009, UCS MF in 2010), I was hoping for more.

not every sale event can be a mega event like the last christmas round, or when the ucs falcons were being given away :lol:, but the two rounds of bogoho at TRU sure did help lessen the sting of the underhwhelming sales at [email protected]

Ok, now I know Ace mentioned it, but am I the only one completely urked by the fact they did NOT include the X-Wing or the Tie Interceptor?!!?!!! I mean who the heck is working over there!?! They include the walking AT-AT monstrosity but not the two first UCS sets??? The bust is a whole other animal.

I was really excited about a cool UCS poster, but it doesn't even include two of the best...

Wooo, well at least the poster confirms the upcoming availability of the awesome UCS Super Star Destroyer! I'm rather pumped about that. I might bite the bullet and finally get the Republic Dropship and AT-OT...I feel like it is going to be discontinued soon, and it would make a nice graduation gift to myself.
I think TRON-based Lego sets would be awesome!

Not to open the can of worms that was the "What is a UCS set" topic, but it looks like they just went by set number to make the poster. Sets numbered greater than 10000 made the poster.

Notice that Cloud City (10123) and the sandcrawler (10144), which are not UCS sets according to Bricklink, are on the poster but not X-wing (7191), Tie (7181) or Yoda (7194).

That is disappointing. I wonder what the reasoning was for excluding those sets. In my mind, every UCS set as classified by Lego should be on the poster. The X-wing and the TIE Interceptor defined the series, if anything, they should be where the Death Star is, right in the center. I guess they weren't ultimate enough.

I guess, technically, the inclusion of the X-Wing would have made it "11 years of ultimate sets," (2000-2010). But, yeah, I agree that omitting the X-Wing is sad (maybe they should have done this last year so 10 years could have captured it?). Especially when they included both versions of the Tantive IV. >8(

You know, I completely overlooked that. Why did they do THAT?!? And the top of poster reads "Over 10 years of...". So while I am glad Lego is putting something together for fans, they could have spent a bit more time to get it right. Looks like I will be photo-shopping the X-Wing and Tie into spots were they belong...like the second Tantive!

pwnd. XD

I would love to be able to support the site as much as possible, but I doubt I'll be buying much (if anything) during this sale. Maybe I'll cave and get a couple of battlepacks, if only to have a tiny chance at the Falcon. I'll be sure to click through if I decide to buy.
