LEGO Star Wars 40591 Death Star II GWP includes a hidden surprise

Not only is 40591 Death Star II one of this year’s May the 4th LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Star Wars GWP sets, but the model also includes a sneaky hidden surprise.

There’s less than a week to go until Star Wars Day 2023 arrives, with the LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Group celebrating May the 4th with the release of new LEGO Star Wars sets, multiple GWP items, boosted VIP points and all sorts of member rewards. For many the chance to snap up limited-edition promotional models is a must, with this year’s offerings including two such choices.

One of the exclusive sets debuting for this year’s May the 4th event is 40591 Death Star II, a 289-piece model that sits on its own display stand, can be rotated and continues an encouraging trend for the LEGO Group. The model includes a printed Return of the Jedi 40th anniversary brick and picking up the set will also bag you both 30654 X-Wing Starfighter and 5007840 Return of the Jedi 40th Collectible. In addition, the official listing for the LEGO Star Wars set mentions a surprise feature that’s currently hidden from view.

The details for 40591 Death Star II state that the build includes a miniature recreation of the Emperor’s throne room inside. The existing images for the promotional set don’t show that specific location, but it’s possible that some elements on the top half of 40591 Death Star II may fold down to reveal the tiny scene. Of course, a much larger version of that location is recreated in 75352 Emperor’s Throne Room Diorama, one of seven upcoming new LEGO Star Wars models arriving on May 1.
