I strongly believe that this is the May the 4th freebie, but I cannot say it with 100% confidence.
I realise this is all speculation for this years', but knowing previous trends would be nice.
It's worldwide- online and in store.
(Just in case you're wondering, I'm not actually offended. I've been reading the UCS MF rumours thread, I know how you get. I feel like a true part of the community.)
Maybe they should have... Free UCS falcon all month with $179,794.76 purchases. Exact threshold amount required to receive promotional item.
I did think it didn't look that great, just knew I had to have it, but, maybe not now
Thanks a bunch to the dude/dudette who can enlighten us!
Supposedly more sets will be added later tonight.
- #75179 Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter
- #75191 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive
- #75190 First Order Star Destroyer
Not very interesting so far. Even #75191, a TRU exclusive, is still cheaper at TRU DE after the 20% discount.
(For the US/UK Bricksetters: TRU on the continent is not directly impacted by the bankruptcy, and has recently been bought by Smyths.)
Australia is showing 10% off 8 sets, including #75144 Snowspeeder:
We're supposed to get 20% selected sets in the UK.
Nothing yet about a possible Black VIP card promo, I'm expecting that I'll be disappointed.
Free Exclusive LEGO® Star Wars™ Y-Wing Poster (5005624) offer is valid for VIP purchases at shop.LEGO.com, in LEGO Stores and LEGO Catalogue telephone orders from 04/05/2018 to 07/05/2018, or while stocks last. Qualifying purchase must be equal to or greater than £30 in LEGO Star Wars™ merchandise only with a valid LEGO VIP Black Card.
I'd have preferred the reduced price to qualify for the BB8... however, a real bonus is that there is a raffle for an 18K white gold R2 that Black VIP card holders are automatically entered into. "Which was nice."*
Unfortunately TRU.de does not deliver to The Netherlands, and the TRU.nl has higher prices, and a much more limited assortment of sets too. Also no free delivery in NL regardless of how much you spend. I have never bought anything at TRU.
Btw. Do you have a delivery address in Belgium or Germany? TRU.de does not deliver in Luxembourg either, do they?!
I don't care much for the sequel trilogy sets. I already have Kylo's Tie, which I got heavily discounted before I saw The Lost Jedi, and I still haven't built it (like so many other sets I bought over the last couple of years). The prequel trilogy Jedi starfighter set is an expensive but nice set though!
I would love to get the new Cantina set at a discount of 20% or more. It will make a nice addition to my excellent older Cantina set #75052 from 2014.
Does TLG put the same sets on special offer during the 'May the Fourth' promotion world wide, or does vary from continent/country to continent/country?
@TheBigLegoski - they tend to be similar but there have been exceptions - I think it depends on regional stock levels/demand. For example, #10227 UCS B-Wing was available in the US at 50% off one year, but it wasn't in the UK.
Zero interest, money saved!
I'm a bit underwhelmed by the initial items on sale here in the US. Perhaps they will be adding more.
