LEGO Star Wars 40531 Lars Family Homestead Kitchen gift with purchase review 11

The build offers LEGO Star Wars fans a deeper dive into the original trilogy for a truly unique addition to the collection, with a highly-detailed and very sleek recreation of the kitchen from the Lars family homestead, as it appeared in the first act of A New Hope. Within a small scene is a relatively complex and interesting build to recreate something never previously built out of LEGO.

In addition to what is a really very immersive snapshot of a familiar location comes a first-ever minifigure for Aunt Beru. We’ve had Owen Lars minifigures in the past but this is the first time to welcome the other member to Luke Skywalker’s family, seen at the start of A New Hope before meeting an untimely demise at the hands of the Empire.

The minifigure captures that 1970s sci-fi aesthetic to Aunt Beru’s appearance just perfectly, and she stands as the ideal complement to the LEGO model.

For the quality and depth of design for this gift-with-purchase, the qualifying spend of £160 / $160 / €160 feels remarkably good value. Throw in the fact that that spend threshold will also automatically qualify LEGO VIPs for both 5007403 The Mandalorian Beskar Keyring and 30495 AT-ST and it’s a bargain you probably can expect won’t hang around too long this May the 4th Star Wars Day.

40531 Lars Family Homestead Kitchen is awarded free with LEGO Star Wars purchases of £160 / $160 / €160 at LEGO.com during May 1 to 8, or while stocks last.

During the same period for May the 4th Star Wars Day, LEGO Star Wars purchases of £40 / $40 / €40 will receive a free copy of polybag 30495 AT-ST.

In addition, LEGO Star Wars purchases of £70 / $70 / €70 will receive a free copy of 5007403 The Mandalorian Beskar Keyring.

These offers all overlap and are running for the duration of the May the 4th Star Wars Day event, May 1 to 8, while stocks last. That means that qualifying purchases for 40531 Lars Family Homestead Kitchen will automatically receive a copy of 30495 AT-ST and 5007403 The Mandalorian Beskar Keyring.
