Enthusiasts of a galaxy far, far away have come in full force to the official online store today as the May the Fourth promotions have begun. Already, the huge set released for the event, 75308 R2-D2, is on backorder with copies currently being shipped by May 12. However, the exclusive promotion model is also facing stock issues.
Even if you manage to pass the spend threshold needed to get 40451 Tatooine Homestead free on your order, the build won’t currently get added to your basket.
Hopefully, the promotion can return in time for Star Wars Day on May 4, with just a few days left to go before the big day arrives. Either way, the double VIP points event is unlikely to be affected by stock shortages, still offering some enticement for ordering your LEGO Star Wars sets.
We’ll keep you updated with the latest on the LEGO Group’s May the Fourth stock as one of the most iconic events in the LEGO calendar continues. In the meantime, why not read up on what you will hopefully be able to find in the set thanks to our review.
