LEGO servers have been updated to include official images of this year’s LEGO May the 4th promotional, gift-with-purchase (GWP) set. Earlier this week, it was revealed that LEGO will be throwing in a limited edition freebie in the form of the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) as this year’s exclusive GWP set for LSW fans who will make their next LEGO Star Wars purchase on this grand sale day.
Valued at $14.99, the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) comes in a similar diorama format like that from last year’s LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) set. Coming in at 235 pieces, this display piece takes its cue from Episode VI Return of the Jedi during the final encounter against the Imperial forces on board the incomplete Death Star II. The micro-build/diorama features a sort of a trench run between a Rebel A-Wing ship and a dreaded TIE Interceptor. The set will also come with its own exclusive 2×4 printed tile.
There is no particular mention of a price point required to obtain this set, but we can surmise that it will be probably the same as that of last year’s $75 qualifying purchase. Other than this freebie, LEGO is also bringing back its Double VIP points during this period, plus super sweet discounts on LEGO Star Wars sets and items. And if you’re eyeing for this year’s UCS set, then May the 4th is the best time to get the LEGO Star Wars UCS A-Wing Starfighter (75275) which will retail for $199.99.
