LEGO Star Wars 75308 R2-D2 is live at and in stores

Itching for a new LEGO Star Wars set to build? Maybe something to buy to qualify for this year’s May the Fourth freebie? Good news: 75308 R2-D2 has just launched online and in stores.

It’s the first direct-to-consumer (but not Ultimate Collector Series!) LEGO Star Wars set of 2021, and – if rumours are to be believed – only the smallest of the three planned models, which includes the hugely-anticipated Republic Gunship.

We’re getting ahead of ourselves slightly, though, because while those sets are still months away, Artoo is asking for a respectable slice of your annual LEGO budget right here, right now. The 2,314-piece astromech is available for £179.99 / $199.99 / €199.99, which is far beyond the £85 / $85 / €85 threshold to see 40451 Tatooine Homestead added to your order.

That microscale scene is the fourth in a line that began with the LEGO Star Wars 20th anniversary sets in 2019, and follows on from last year’s May the Fourth gift-with-purchase, 40407 Death Star II Battle. You’ll be able to grab it with qualifying purchases (including 75308 R2-D2) until May 5, or while stocks last.

Stay abreast of all this year’s May the Fourth offers across and other retailers with our dedicated page. And while you’re at it, please support the work that Brick Fanatics does by taking advantage of those very same offers using any one of our affiliate links. Thank you!

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
