LEGO Star Wars Day: All 2023 “May the 4th” Promos and Deals

May the 4th” has been universally dubbed as “Star Wars Day” by fellow nerds across the globe, and LEGO typically celebrates with several in-store and online promotions including:

What is "May the 4th"?
In case you don't know why May 4th is known as Star Wars Day, it’s actually quite simple. The phrase is a fun play on words: “May the fourth” sounds like “May the force” – from the famous Star Wars line “May the force be with you”. Now you know!

Let’s take a look at what the May the 4th (be with you) promotions for 2023 are:

2023 LEGO May the 4th Promotions

*Note – All of the promotions and gifts with purchases are valid from May 1st – 7th.
*Note – If you spend over $150, you will receive all 3 gift-with-purchase promos.

1. Mini Death Star II (40591)

The highlight of this year’s May the 4th promos is definitely the #40591 Mini Death Star II free gift with any LEGO Star Wars purchases over $150 either online or in-store.

This micro-scale Death Star features the familiar 40th anniversary Return of the Jedi plaque brick we’ve seen on a few other sets this year, and contains 289 pieces.

While it’s slightly disappointing that this year’s free gift doesn’t include a minifigure (like last year’s Aunt Beru in the Lars Family Homestead Kitchen – eBay link), this still looks like a fantastic mini display piece, and I will definitely be taking advantage of this offer.

*Update – LEGO has officially sold out of the mini Death Star II promo gift with purchase. The only place to find one now if you missed it is on eBay (link). Happy bidding!

2. Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary Collectable Coins

This one is a little strange to me, but for any LEGO Star Wars purchases over $85, the included gift is two collectable data cards / coins showing the Death Star plans with the LEGO Star Wars logo on the flipside.

I think most fans (myself included) would have preferred an actual brick build or a minifigure, but it is what it is.

3. X-Wing Starfighter Polybag

Lastly, the smallest of the free gift with purchases will be a small polybag X-Wing for any purchases over $40. I believe this is the same polybag that has already been available at Walmart for a few months.

This one is a fun little micro build with 87 pieces and features adjustable wings. (Personally, I would rather have this than the collectable coins…ha)

4. Get 2X and 5X VIP Bonus Points!

VIP 2x points

For the entire week of May the 4th (May 1st – 7th), LEGO are offering double VIP points on ALL LEGO Star Wars set purchases, both in-store and online. Good chance to stock up on any sets you are missing from your collection!

5. New LEGO Star Wars Sets Launching on May 1st, 2023

LEGO are releasing 7 new Star Wars sets on May 1st. I cover these releases (and more) in my 2023 sets article, but here are the highlights:

These will all available for pre-order now and will ship on May 1st. The UCS X-Wing ships on May 4th, but VIP members can order it early on May 1st.

Remember, if you want to take advantage of the free gifts with purchase and the extra VIP points, order during the week of May 1st – 7th to qualify for all the free goodies and promos.

  1. Oh I’m so excited for May now! I’ve already been waiting for May 12th, the release of the Tears of the Kingdom game (completely unrelated to LEGO by the way) but now there are Star Wars day deals and promos that month too???
    Also, this page might need an update, because I think there’s a few more things for Star Wars Day, including a 5x VIP Points In-Store or something…?
