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.
Earlier this year, LEGO Ideas launched two particular contests where LEGO fans can submit their original creations with the hope of being selected as the platform’s official logo, and the next gift-with-purchase set following a classic space theme. Both competitions were warmly welcomed by the LEGO community, with the latter hitting a bit of a snag regarding the originality of its submitted project.

We all know that at the heart of it, all of LEGO’s brick sets and related products today have an educational bent that’s fitting of the brand’s earliest roots. But their LEGO Education product line is pretty blatant about its theme, wearing the distinction of its educational aims with pride.
When it comes to their full-customization BrickHeadz Go Brick Me set (41597), LEGO has been busy promoting all the fun things you can do. Foremost of course is the possibility of creating a BrickHeadz version of yourself with your own hands. But LEGO’s even making a contest out of it.
