I received a mailer in my mailbox today from LEGO Shop@Home detailing the upcoming May the 4th sale. The most exciting thing about the sale is the above-pictured buildable R2-D2 figure. That thing of beauty is free with a $50 purchase of LEGO Star Wars items while supplies last, natch, and I’m guessing that supplies won’t last very long.

You’ll also get double VIP points on all LEGO Star Wars items you purchase during the sale from May 4th through May 7th. Although the mailer doesn’t specify the exact sets, it does say that select LEGO Star Wars items will be on sale. We will be posting any details as soon as we learn more.


And lastly, the gorgeous new UCS set 75144 Snowspeeder officially goes on sale on May 4th. The 1700+ piece set comes with two minifigs and improves upon the original’s design in many ways. The price is $199.99.

Stay tuned for more sales news the closer we get to the date and FBTB thanks you for your support.
