The LEGO Store May Calendar is now out and as expected, the Force is strong with this month’s promos and highlights. LEGO is all ready to go come May the 4th, especially with its in-store activities and freebies. So before we are treated with a UCS-like Porg (75230) sometime in October, LEGO is giving us a taste of things to come with an exclusive Make and Take Build event in all LEGO brand stores from May 4 to 6. Open to all children ages 6-14, participants will be treated to a LEGO buildable Porg which is actually our very first official LEGO Porg set.
Here’s the full announcement as mentioned at the back of the LEGO Store May Calendar:
May the 4th Be With You! (May 4-6)
All weekend, come in dressed as your favorite character! You can also participate in an exclusive Porg Make and Take Build that you get to take home – for free! Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and quantities are limited. Stop by or call your local LEGO Store to sign up starting April 1. This activity is intended for children ages 6-14 only. See a Brick Specialist for details.
As you may notice, registration is already on-going which began early this month. I’m quite positive that this is one Make and Take build that will prove to be quite popular among the LEGO faithful, and it is understandable if registration will be full even a month before the event. We just hope that like similar previous promos, LEGO will make the instructions available online since the pieces used for this kind of sets are usually easy to find and may in fact already be part of your existing LEGO collection.
So what do you think of this exclusive Porg Make and Take build? Will you sign-up your kid or sibling for this one? Let me know in the comments below.
