LEGO Star Wars May the Fourth 2019 promo revealed

This year’s LEGO Star Wars May the Fourth promo has been revealed on a Hungarian LEGO Store calendar, and it’s another celebration of the theme’s 20th anniversary.

Rather than a polybagged minifigure or droid, though, this year’s promo is an entire boxed set, as revealed over at Brickset. 40333 Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition includes a microscale AT-AT, two Snowspeeders and the shield generator, atop a snowy brick-built base.

The set comes in the same luxurious black and silver packaging as the rest of the 20th Anniversary wave, and bears the same subtitle, so could definitely be considered necessary by collectors. You know, in case you needed someone else to justify the purchase for you. (That’s what we’re here for.)

There’s no word yet on just how or when the promo will be available in most territories. However, the Hungarian calendar – which can be found at Budapest’s Certified LEGO Store – says it will be free with LEGO Star Wars purchases above 14,999 forints (around £40, or $52) for the entire month of May.

That would be a marked departure from previous years, when the May the Fourth promo was only available over the weekend closest to the day itself. We’ll bring you more news on 40333’s global availability when we get it.

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.
