You may have noticed that it’s been a while since we’ve featured a LEGO Store Calendar here on The Brick Show. Part of the reason would be that they’ve stopped featuring promotional items of the month there. That’s usually the main draw for the store calendars. Without them, promos tend to catch buyers by surprise.
But that seems to apply only to LEGO Store Calendars for the US. In other countries the promotional items are still included along with their promo periods. Our fellow LEGO news sources (and online set guide) Brick Set discovered the May 2019 promo items from a Hungarian LEGO Store Calendar.
We’re not certain if this will also apply to stateside LEGO Stores next month but here goes. For all days of May any minimum LEGO purchase of 15,000 Hungarian forints will add a LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition (40333) set free.
Now we go to the caveats. In US dollars 15,000 Hungarian forints will amount to $52.67 rounded to the nearest $9.99; but that’s not set in stone. Furthermore, we’re not certain if this Hungarian promo will also be replicated elsewhere. Still, we have something new to keep an eye out for when May comes around.
The LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition (40333) isn’t like the other big anniversary sets (that have numbers starting with 7). Rather, this is a micro-build of the famous Hoth battleground with a deflector shield generator, an attacking AT-AT and defending Snowspeeders.
