May the 4th be with you now, as the Star Wars fandom commence their celebrations this Friday, which has fallen on the pun-iest day of this month of the year. The various Star Wars-connected promotions on LEGO for May 4 would’ve also gone into full swing by now as well.
Perhaps one of the most rewarding promo items one can get from LEGO on May the 4th is this R2-D2 minifigure made out of 18-karat white gold. There’s only one of these available, and only those with a LEGO Black VIP membership card have been automatically entered for the raffle.
This would’ve already been made known to Black VIP cardholders via email. Said message includes an assurance that the recipient need not do anything more to join the raffle for the 18-karat R2-D2 (they’re already entered). Said minifigure also comes with a certificate of authenticity for the white gold R2-D2.
Aside from this “grand prize” of sorts, there are other great giveaways that one can get from LEGO for May 4. Next in prominence is the LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-Wing (75181) technical blueprints (numbered 5005624), available with a minimum $35 LEGO purchase (or any amount for Black VIP cardholders).
Note also that LEGO VIP members get double the VIP points this Star Wars Day, and they can “Make & Take” Porg figures or buy the UCS Millennium Falcon (75212) at LEGO Stores. Here’s hoping you enjoy the festivities, for this is the day you’ve been waiting for; move along.
