Current thoughts on this years Mt4 are a pre-order for #75317 Mandalorian & Child and #75292 The Razor Crest as the GWP will ship straight away. Other than that i'd jump at a #75244 Tantive IV if on sale >=20%, likewise #75192 Millennium Falcon is on my wish list but have been aiming to get that free on VIP points... 89% of the way there... ok so I can pay the extra but there's something sweet about being free... did cross my mind though that if bought 2 (1 now, 1 later), the first one on double VIP this Mt4 would take me to the 104000 VIP to make the 2nd one free so that's one to build and one to keep or maybe buy the Falcon get a free ISD.... either way i'm sure i'll be buying something this time around. If #75192 is in the sale it'd swing things.
Unless there is a decent sale, I won't be buying SW LEGO.
I could be tempted by the UCS A-wing if Tantive IV isn't reduced but the freebies are good.
Or if I sell some stuff on ebay (the prices are insane right now!), the UCS ISD from John Lewis at £550 might tempt me unless TLG do something crazy like reduce it or give it triple points despite how new it is.
I suppose the downside to the shops not being open is that there'll be no shop only additional freebies like a polybag, and you can't make multiple purchases for multiple freebies as [email protected] enforce those rules.
I definitely have 2 of several gifts, but at least a couple of them I know were an online order plus a store purchase.
Will be interesting to see how they handle this situation where they have online only. They clearly won't be shipping stock to stores right now. Does that mean it should take a little longer for [email protected] to run out, or will they hold some for in-store promos later in the year?
It doesn't apply in store, although I'm sure if they put their mind to it, they could tell you've had a freebie in store if you've got a VIP account as they go on your receipt with no cost.
Tantive IV, if on discount at all, and possibly even if not. This is my main focus. I will buy it May 4 or in Nov/Dec. Would prefer to do it now.
20th Anniversary Slave I, maybe if at least 20% off. 40% would be a definite.
ISD if it's 20% off, but I highly doubt that would happen.
Any of the late 2019 and early 2020 sets if they're 20% off. Doubt this will apply though. Mostly will check Kylo Ren's
If any of the above are a published "doorbuster" for May 4, I might just do a bundle of smaller sets like the battle packs, micro-fighters, Obi-Wan's Hut, etc. to get to the GWP threshold on May 1, just to make sure I will get the GWP. Alternatively, I could pre-order the Razor-crest and then thrown in a microfighter to make sure I have something shipping right away, so the GWP will also ship.
I will apparently also need to make 2 separate orders to take advantage of the two Droid Commander poly bag codes I have. Uggg!! (One of those will be taken up before May 1 if a couple non-SW sets are back in stock this week)
i dont know about others but this, daily discounts on random (feels random to me) set's lego have been doing makes me more likely to not but any set in the hope that one of the big set pop up.
i will be geting the Razor Crest at some point. but i am not going to pre order it 3 months in advenace.... Three MOUNTS!!!!!!
I don't have high hopes for a decent sale given the current circumstances.
Several of the £50+ sets are currently out of stock, which is likely to be as a result of lower production levels combined with higher demand, so why would TLG want to discount much when they're struggling to keep up with demand at full RRP....
My guess is that the current handful of sets on sale at 15% will be reduced further, and they'll add a sprinkling of others such as #75240, #75272, #75242.
mainly why i was/am planing to buy on the 1st.
I suppose this year we can't ask any loose lipped Lego store employees.
and hell any % off the Tantive IV will go down well with me.
as long as it on sale from the 1st day and not only on sale on the 4th day.
with the stock level this years, i am not going to risk missing out on the set's i am after.
Darth Revan was my favorite.
Well, according to the website it's 'The ultimate LEGO® Star Wars™ Event'...
My expectations were low, but that's awful - 20% off a handful of sets, most of which were already reduced! No wonder they didn't bother with a physical mailshot!
nope 10 mins of trying to get my fav list to load, then lego's 404 page
do you have a list of set on sale?
@chrisalddin - if I recall correctly there's a 20% discount on around 8 sets including:
#75273 - Droid Commander
#75241 - Action Battle Echo Base
#75270 - Pasanna Speeder Chase
#75238 - Endor Attack
#75239 - Hoth Generator Attack
Darth Vader Watch & Darth Vader Pen/Pad set
