Star Wars May the Fourth Discounts & Deals - Including A Free LEGO Event!


May 4th Star Wars Goodies

We know Star Wars fans like to dig for a bargain more than Jawas at a crash site so we have done the digging for you. This year you can enjoy promotions, deals and giveaways at Smyths, LEGO and Amazon to name a few. Check out our list below to see what treasures we have uncovered for you*.

Star Wars May The Fourth Events & Offers


The LEGO Stores are holding in-store "Make It and Take It" events over Star Wars Weekend, whereby you can build a cute LEGO Princess Leia and Darth Vader and take it home with you! The events are occurring at specific times; Saturday 4th May between 10am-12pm and Sunday 5th May between 12pm-2pm and it's recommended to arrive early as it's while stocks last. LEGO has said that this activity is for children aged 6 and up

As well as this special event, LEGO is offering several GWPs (Gift with Purchase) with Star Wars spends:

Spend £35+

Star Wars 30680 AAT

Available to everyone

Spend £145+

Star Wars 40686 Federation Troop Carrier

Available to everyone

Spend £80+

Battle of Yavin 5008818 Collectable 

LEGO Insiders only

LEGO Stores are also being issued with 100 alternate LEGO bags each but with LEGO written in Aurebesh. These are the large bags so unfortunately just buying a LEGO Minifigure won’t bag you one.

Smyths & Hamleys - In-Store Star Wars Events

Smyths is also participating in a LEGO Star Wars giveaway across all stores. The LEGO 30685 Tie Interceptor could be yours if you pop into Smyths on the 4th of May. There is apparently a Make-It-and-Take-It event in Smyths too, but currently, there is no mention as to what the build(s) are. This will also be a while stocks last situation.

Hamleys in Regent Street, London are also putting on a Make-It-and-Take-It event, but with builds of Yoda and a mini X-Wing.

Comic Book Day - In-Store Freebies

This Saturday, May Fourth is also Comic Book Day (traditionally the first Saturday in May) which means that you can get free comic books from participating stores. There are over 40 different free comic books available this year; two of which are Star Wars related. We have the Young Jedi Adventures: Plants vs Zombies and Star Wars #1 (featuring a neat cover of half Luke’s head, half Vader’s head).

The last Star Wars freebie that we managed to track down is from Argos. If you purchase an eligible LEGO set you will receive an R2-D2 keying (worth £5). Argos are currently offering 20-25% off selected LEGO Star Wars sets, and Amazon is following suit by also offering discounts on various LEGO Star Wars sets.
