May the 4th is an exciting time for Star Wars fans and LEGO has made it even better. Playing off of the famous greeting, “May the Force be with you,” May the 4th has been dubbed Star Wars Day. It has become so well known that retailers all over the country have taken the opportunity to release special merchandise available to fans in recognition of this Force-filled event and LEGO is among them.
From now until May 4th, fans who shop the LEGO.com site or who come into one of the authorized LEGO stores can receive a special gift for purchasing Star Wars related products. A free LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie poster (featuring LEGO versions of your favorite movie characters) is available for anyone who makes a LEGO Star Wars purchase.
If you buy more than $50 worth of Star Wars items, you can also receive a special EXCLUSIVE First Order LEGO Stormtrooper. All LEGO VIP members also receive double VIP points for your Star Wars acquisitions. And to entice you even more LEGO is offering free shipping on all online orders through May the 4th!
There is even a sale on select Star Wars products, but FYI many of those are already sold out so hurry if you want to take advantage of those deals. And to celebrate the day, LEGO has just released it’s newest Star Wars set – Assault on Hoth. It comes with enough pieces to build your own authentic replica of the famous battle from Empire Strikes Back. Including the ion cannon, the shield generators, the base doors, long range laser cannons and weapons, a snowspeeder, and even a Wampa and a Tauntaun, you can recreate all of your favorite scenes. And if you’re looking for great Star Wars minifigures, it includes Luke Skywalker in Hoth gear, Han Solo in Hoth gear, K3PO, and for the first time Toryn Farr.
