- Double VIP Points on all Star Wars products

Every LEGO Star Wars product will have double VIP points applied onto them, so here are some examples of what the double VIP points will benefit in:

LEGO Star Wars 75275 A-wing Starfighter £179.99
lego.com/en-…275

Normally worth 1440 points (£9) with double VIP points offer worth 2880 points (£18)

lego.com/en-…192


Normally worth 5200 points (£32.50) with double VIP points offer worth 10400 points (£65)


- Sale on selected LEGO Star Wars sets

Like every year there will be some Star Wars sets on sale, these sets will be announced on the 1st May, I am not sure if they will be doing one day sales again that will be announced on the first day of the offers.

Looking at recent years I suspect there will be 20% off about 20 or so sets and if they go like last year some retiring ones might go 40% off. I will update this post with the sales on the 1st.

- New releases

To coincide with this event there are 5 sets which will be released and hopefully in stock plus two sets for pre-order which hopefully the offers will apply to these are:

LEGO Star Wars 75275 A-wing Starfighter £179.99 (Releases May 1st) lego.com/en-…275

So are the sets reduced, or is it just double VIP plus gift?

There definitly will be reductions,but i cannot confirm what will be reudced and how much by.
Somewhat sadly, and I think for the first time ever, I don't like any of the SW sets on the Lego Shop site (save the UCS Falcon which I already have.) I have over 7000 VIP points which I will probably never use so I may just have to buy vouchers and try to sell on eBay.
Well - the list of sets at a discount is released, and its the most pathetic list of discounts they've ever done for a May 4th event...

lego.com/en-…E9Z

Droid Commander £143.99 (-20%) lego.com/en-…253
Action Battle Echo Base Defence £43.99 (-20%) lego.com/en-…241
Black Ace TIE Interceptor £35.99 (-20%) lego.com/en-…242
Pasaana Speeder Chase £35.99 (-20%) lego.com/en-…250
Action Battle Endor Assault £19.99 (-20%) lego.com/en-…238

20th Anniversary Darth Vader Link Watch £15.99 (-20%) lego.com/en-…824

I'm pretty sure the Droid commander set has been cheaper elsewhere in the past (Argos?) - and none of the other sets interest me in the slightest. Well looks like I'm keeping my money this year...

New A-wing looks nice, but I'll wait till its at a discount. Don't really fancy the free set (for spending over £75) either. My oh my LEGO, way to disappoint!

I think the only redeemable feature of this years May the 4th is the Double VIP points for me, but then again im more likely to buy the Wonderwoman set which is one of two sets on the Monthly double VIP thing.
