May the 4th is just around the corner, as highlighted by LEGO’s May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar. And in keeping up with this year’s busiest week for LEGO Star Wars fans, LEGO is now doing its share of promotions and offerings from the galaxy far, far away.
Now just a word of caution – I am not encouraging all of you to go out there for a frenzied shopping spree to get the latest Star Wars merch. Since LEGO and other establishments have complied with the government’s marching orders to stay at home then, by all means, let’s continue to do so. So until such time that we ease up on our quarantine guidelines, LEGO has made it clear that it will keep its 150+ stores around the world temporarily closed until further notice.
But of course, we don’t necessarily need to remove the fun from this otherwise festive occasion. LEGO Shop@Home is still up and running and we can still enjoy the many LEGO freebies that LEGO has to offer. With that out of the way, let’s check out the details of next month’s LEGO promotional and freebies. You may also download a PDF version of the May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar via LEGO.com.
LEGO Star Wars UCS A-Wing Starfighter (75275)
May 1 onwards
This year’s LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series offering will be the A-Wing Starfighter (75275). Coming in at 1,673 pieces this set will retail for $199.99 starting May 1.
Free Limited-Edition LEGO Star Death Star II Battle (40407) Set
May 1 to 4, 2020
The LEGO May the 4th gift-with-purchase (GWP) set has been revealed last week, and it pays homage to that trench run scene aboard the Empire’s Death Star II straight from Episode 6 Return of the Jedi. This LEGO Star Wars GWP set will only be available from May 1 to 4 or until supplies last. This micro build will be added to your cart automatically once your LSW purchases reach $75 or more, so I hope you don’t miss out on this one.
Double VIP Points on All LEGO Star Wars Sets
May 1 to 4, 2020
Double VIP points are back for all LEGO Star Wars purchases. If you’re eyeing on those sleek LEGO Star Wars helmets or that cute little D-O (75278) set, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth with the double VIP points that come with them.
Free LEGO Mother’s Day Card (5005878)
May 4 to 10, 2020
LEGO is one with the world in celebrating this year’s Mother’s Day. And of course, you can always express your love to all the super moms out there with this lovely buildable token. This offer will be available from May 4 to 10 and will be added to your cart once your LEGO purchase reaches $40 and above.
Free LEGO City Beach Buggy (30369)
May 18 to 31, 2020
If you plan your purchases carefully for May, then chances are, you can still get this nice LEGO City polybag for free. For the same minimum single-receipt purchase of $40 and above of any LEGO set or merchandise, this beach combing mini build will be included in your cart upon checkout. I’ve always been a fan of polybags especially those from the LEGO City theme, so this one will be a nice part of any collection.
Though the first week of May is predominantly for LSW fans, you’ll be glad to know that some of the LEGO Minions sets are now available including other film-inspired sets such as the LEGO DC Superheroes Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) and the LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111). For CMF collectors, the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027) is also available as well.
And while we’re waiting for this pandemic to be somewhat under control, LEGO has launched its #LetsBuildTogether campaign to help LEGO fans and families have a better home experience during these trying times.

Keep safe and happy building!
