Thanks to Reddit we now have a first look at the upcoming promotions for May the 4th, in which The LEGO Group will be unveiling their newest LEGO Star Wars Set: R2-D2™ (75308). According to the flyer, R2-D2™ will become available on May 1st, which is when the rest of the promotions will go live as well. We'll also be seeing the launch of the next wave of Star Wars busts including Darth Vader Helmet (75304), Scout Trooper Helmet (75305), and also the Imperial Probe Droid (75306).
As far as the May the 4th promotions go, you can expect to receive the new Tatooine™ Homestead Micro Build with purchases over $85.00, along with Double VIP Points on all Star Wars™ purchases at Shop@Home. If you end up making it over to the LEGO Store, they're also offering the Imperial Shuttle™ polybag free with purchases over $40.00—so it might be worth a trip to the store instead if you've been trying to get one!
LEGO also took to social media this morning and teased the announcement of the upcoming R2-D2™ (75308), so we can expect to see that announcement coming soon!
As far as the details regarding set 75308, so far we know that it's going to retail for $199.99, contain roughly 2,300 parts and will include the Lucasfilm Ltd. printed brick seen in the image to the right.
