LEGO Star Wars fans, mark your calendars because May the 4th event is just around the corner! Let’s take a look at the recently revealed LEGO Star Wars May the 4th offerings that will be available during this much-anticipated event. Plus the best deals and free gifts that you can grab during the celebrations.
LEGO Star Wars May the 4th 2023: Freebies with Purchases
This year’s LEGO Star Wars May the 4th promotions will run from May 1 to 7, 2023 as mentioned over at the LEGO online shop campaign page. However, many deals at individual retailers will remain unknown until the actual event kicks off on May 4th.
The LEGO online shop usually has the most important promotions for LEGO Star Wars fans during this event, even if the discounts are traditionally the lowest there. This is due to the often attractive new releases in the past, but above all, to the free gifts which can be yours for certain qualifying purchases. And these freebies can become quite expensive on reselling sites as we’ve seen in the past.
For this year, there will be a lot of LEGO Star Wars May the 4th free gifts that will be up for grabs or while supplies last. Now is the great time to be a LEGO VIP member since many of these freebies will be unlocked along with your VIP perks. As of to date, there are three Gift with Purchase (GWP) items that are already confirmed.
LEGO Star Wars Death Star II (40591)
The big freebie for this year’s May the 4th event is the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II (40591). This set is a miniature version of the 2nd Death Star and comes complete with a Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary plaque. The set comes with LEGO 18+ branding in an exclusive black box and consists of 289 parts. However, there is no LEGO Star Wars minifigure to watch out for from this one. The minimum qualifying purchase to bag this set has dropped slightly compared to last year. This LEGO Star Wars May the 4th promo will be available for all LEGO Star Wars purchases of $150 or more. This gift-with-purchase set is scheduled to be available from May 1st to May 7th, 2023, while supplies last.
LEGO Star Wars Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary Collectible (5007840)
As an additional free gift, there will be a Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary Collectible in the form of an exquisite medal, available for a minimum qualifying purchase of $85. This shiny collectible silver medal is engraved with the Death Star II on one side and the LEGO Star Wars wording on the other. It comes packaged in a matching box and covered with a transparent blue hologram of the Death Star, shaped to resemble the data cartridge containing the plans for the Death Star.
LEGO Star Wars X Wing Starfighter (30654) Polybag
From a minimum purchase value of $40 or more, LEGO Star Wars fans will receive the LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter polybag which has been available since January. This free gift has a value of $3.99 and can already be found in various shops as well.
VIP Perks on LEGO Star Wars May the 4th
Double VIP Points
As we’ve seen before, this year’s May the 4th event will see the return of double VIP points. However, unlike last year, all LEGO Star Wars purchases for this year’s event come with double VIP points. Double VIP points mean that logged-in VIP customers will be credited with 10% of the purchase value in the form of VIP points. These points can later be exchanged for shopping vouchers or physical rewards both online and in-store.
20% Off on Selected LEGO Star Wars Sets
This year, customers will be able to unlock a 20% discount on selected LEGO Star Wars sets with VIP vouchers. The discount vouchers will cost 100 VIP points, which is equivalent to a dollar or more, and will probably be limited in number. The exclusive sets to which the discounts apply are yet to be confirmed so be sure to keep your brick radars on.
