May the Savings be with you: The best May the 4th Lego Star Wars deals 2018

Celebrate Intergalactic Star Wars Day with 20% off at the Lego Store, plus great savings on Amazon

May the Force be with you, Lego lovers and saber-samurais, for the Star Wars Day Lego deals have arrived! Luckily, the sale isn’t happening a long, long time ago but rather in 2018, from the 4th to the 7th of May.

To celebrate international Star Wars Day, Lego is offering a range of hefty discounts on a number of sets from their hugely popular Star Wars range. The Lego Star Wars universe is possibly the most lucrative crossover collaboration that popular culture has ever seen, and some of its products are notoriously expensive; take the £650, 7,500-piece Lego Millenium Falcon, for example, which – for once – is actually in stock. 

But for three days you can save 20% on selected Star Wars sets, and reap additional perks such as double VIP points (redeemable online and in stores) and a free BB-8 set if you spend £65 or more.

Whether you’re a collector yourself or are simply looking to stock up on Christmas gifts while the getting’s cheap, this weekend will be your best chance to get a good deal on what are typically some very expensive toys. Sorry, “display models’. That’s what we meant.

Dedicated brick-heads will be also excited to learn about a new set released for May 4th: the Y-Wing Starfighter. The latest addition to the “Ultimate Collector Series”, the almost-2,000-piece ship features moveable parts and all the authentic attention to detail the Lego Star Wars line is famed for. Will it be included in the May 4th 20% discount? Watch this hyperspace.

The Lego store isn’t the only place to find a tasty deal on your favourite stackable building blocks, however. Amazon is also jumping to deals lightspeed this May the 4th. The Defense on Crait set, which recreates the epic final standoff from The Last Jedi, has been reduced from £75 to just under £50, and you can also nab a  cool £19 off this First Order AT-ST set.

We’ll be updating this page with all the best Lego Star Wars deals as we find them, so watch this (hyper)space.

Please read on to see our favourite Lego Star Wars deals for May 4th – 7th. They won’t last long, so remember: Han bought first!

1. Save £35 on the T-47 Snowspeeder Ultimate Collector Series Edition

The iconic Snowspeeder is a must-have for any Star Wars fan. The Snowspeeder vs AT-AT battle on Hoth was the biggest set-piece of Star Wars’ best film, and now you can build that 1,700 piece set for only £135.99 – a £35 discount. It’s also hard to find online at the best of times and is often sold out on the Lego Store, so be quick about it.

2. £30 off the Rathtar Escape set – (Sith) Lightning Deal

For May the 4th only, Amazon is selling the Rathtar Escape Lego set for only £55, a saving of £30. This lighting deal won’t last long, but even once it ends the kit – which recreates Han and Chewie’s action-packed first scene in The Force Awakens – is still £18 off until May 7th. 

3. 35% off the First Order Heavy Scout Walker set

Get four figurines (including the superccilious General Hux) and an armoured First Order attack vehicle for only £32.50. This is a whopping 35% discount and the cheapest that the set has ever been since release.
