The buildable version of BB-8, 40288, is back in a new promotion at LEGO.com for US customers. To get the exclusive polybag for free, fans need to spend $60 or more on LEGO Star Wars sets and sign up for the LEGO.com text message service. By signing up to get text alerts, customers will get a promotional code that can be entered at checkout to qualify for the freebie.
40288 BB-8 builds a little model of the memorable Resistance droid using exclusive printed pieces that can only be found in the set. How many other uses they have is debatable, but it is notable for a polybag set to get exclusive printed parts.
Those ordering LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer will also get double VIP points – the equivalent of 10% LEGO cashback instead of the usual 5%.
