It’s not often I do a dedicated blog on a LEGO Shop promotion, but every now and then LEGO throws in a cool promotion and new idea. Off the back of the recent Star Wars “May the 4th be with you” promotion LEGO has now followed up with a free R3-M2 droid from the recent standalone Star Wars movie – Rogue One. What makes this a little bit special is the inclusion of a new base plate (sorry I thought it was a printed name tile but a follower highlighted it’s a sticker!). Further the base incorporates and utilises a technic pin (similar to the Modular series) for connecting other future droids.
Can’t wait to see if this new display technique is endorsed for future Star Wars droid releases and how well it is received by the LEGO community. Stating the obvious it looks likely more are on the horizon!
If you still have money left in your wallet/purses after May the 4th head over to Shop.LEGO.com (Aussie link, but just change country flag for your region). However looks like this is specific to Europe and Australasia regions.
