It always seems busy over at the Lego company, but right now it seems busier than usual. No only is it seemingly running out of stock of Avengers: Endgame tie-in sets, there's also the new release of the Spider-Man: Far From Home tie-in sets and the ongoing 20th anniversary celebrations for the Lego Star Wars theme. But May 4th is on the way, and as Star Wars day approaches we just found out what sort of offers Lego has in store for us.
Those offers have been revealed thanks to a promotional leaflet sent out to VIP members, and post online by Brickset member maniac (registration required). That leaflet reveals a special set for people spending more than £75 on Star Wars sets, featuring a miniaturised diorama of the Battle of Hoth, while VIP members will get a free Star Wars poster if they spend over £35.
Anyone spending more than £35 on Star Wars in a physical Lego store (ie not online) will also get a miniature Naboo Starfighter. Lego stores will also be letting shoppers build miniature versions of the Tantive IV in a new 'make and take' event. Those are usually free, but you will have to get there between 4-6pm on Friday 3rd May. No doubt the instructions will appear online shortly afterwards, if you can't.
Of course that's not all, and there will be the usual selection of discounted sets, but we don't know which ones are going to enjoy the lovely discount we wish all Lego sets had. Fortunately all Star Wars sets will net their buyers double VIP points, and while that's not the same as a proper discount it's still far better than nothing.
