The 'May The Fourth' and Super Heroes promos revealed...

Posted by ,

At last! The 'May The Fourth' promo for this year will be a Limited Edition TC-14 minifigure! Also from the May store calendar is this exclusive Hulk minifigure which will be given away with a $50 purchase between 16 and 31 May.

Via the forum, original source Eurobricks, I believe.

Man these look pretty sweet. Except I wish they kept the original Protocal Driod torso design instead of the new cartoonish one. The Hulk minifigure is AWESOME! they should of used this instead of the oversized mold.

Love the hulk but can't get him!

The Hulk minifigure is very nice! The oversized one is great for comics and movie accuracy, but this one looks like the Ferigno Hulk, which is a nice option to have. And @The Reviewer, look at the small print on that calendar - "Offer valid only in LEGO stores OR at shop.LEGO.com"!

Also, you might want to correct the article - it says the hulk figure is available with "a $75 purchase" when the image clearly states with a $50 purchase.

I actually think that this version of the Hulk is better than the one they currently have...

This is great news! I've always wanted a TC-14 minifigure. It looks great and with the UCS R2-D2 coming out around this time, it's a perfect time to get it. :)

TC-14 is great. It looks like he'll go down in history with the likes of white Boba Fett and chrome Darth Vader.

ooooh, TC-14 is awesome!

Hmmm.... The collectible minifigures come out in May, 16 at 3$ a piece = 48$... 2 more dollars and you'll have the Hulk too! How long do these figures usually last before they sell out?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Carnigee77: It usually takes a week to two weeks for them to sell out (from personal experience). It varies in location. But I would definitely go the first few days the deal starts.

Glitch,Glitch amount of Awesomeness expanding. TO MANY LEGO REALEASES THIS YEAR AND NOW THIS! breaking down. *Powers on* Destroy Humanity....

Getting the Hulk minifigure should be easy when I order the Quinjet. :D

What? Dang it, it's like a month before I get the Malevolence and Gungan Sub... this is... ergh. The one time I could actually get a promo... they have to screw it up. I don't like this.

On a related note, do we know which brick-and-mortar store is getting the exclusive Spider Man set yet?

WHY IS IT ALWAYS THE UNITED STATES? WHERE'S THE UK PROMO? sad....

Gravatar
By in United States,

Getting TC-14 will be no problem thanks to the UCS R2-D2. As for Hulk, hopefully the Spiderman set will be out by then (I have the other Marvel from Walmart). If not, I'll have to buy for buildable figures.

agree with Legolover9531. UCS R2-D2 here I come. annnd TC-14

Is the Hulk For Superheroes set purchases only? it doesn't quite say exactly.

Gravatar
By in United States,

cool i might wait to buy the hulk's Hellicarrier breakout set till then so i can get both Hulk's figures at same time.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@The Reviewer: Unlike the Star Wars promo, you're clear to get any theme set

Gravatar
By in United States,

What are days is the TC-14 avaible? If you notice there is some small print, but I can't tell if it says 4th-5th or 4th-8th

TC-14 is going to be very VERY rare!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I actually think that if lego gives out a keychain with a £50 (or $59.99?) order it will not sell as well as with a real lego figure or small set!

Gravatar
By in United States,

They look cool but are the minifigures going to be of chinese origin like the Kendo Jay promo was?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

You know what, i actually think they MIGHT have meant to do a gold 3P0, but did it silver by accident, and said oooh, wait, we can just call it TC-14... or they didn't like how the sliver 3-P0 looked, and gave it the alt name.

Will the UK also get the TC-14 for a May 4th buy? Howay Lego - sort yourselves out! 30% higher cost than the USA and (probably) no decent promo figure? A crappy keychain just won't cut it. I'd buy UCS R2D2 on May 4th for this, but if no decent promo is available i'll just wait until somewhere is selling it cheaper than RRP (like one of the European Amazon sites).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

These both look amazing. I agree that the Hulk is superior to the oversized one. TC-14? legen....(wait for it)..dary!

Gravatar
By in United States,

No sale. I need double VIP points and 10% off to even consider buying anything. I must be one of the few that don't really care about minifigs.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Waiting to see what the deal is for UK. Will be very unhappy if other territories are ignored again.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Maybe one of the Lego Ambassadors here can try to find out if this will come to the UK ? I truely hope so ...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Just look TC-14 up, turns out it's a female robot.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Yes, come on LEGO, don't forget Europe this time!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,


Didn't we have the same last year with the Shadow ARF Trooper or did America get something better?
If we don't get these figures then that is a complete liberty! I will be writing a stiff letter to Lego, a very stiff letter.
On Cardboard!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does $75 include shipping and tax or not

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Lets hope we get them both here as they will be stupid money on ebay etc.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Why only the states????? Will we see them over here any where other than ebay?????

Gravatar

^TC-14 is a "her". :) She's the female protocol droid that greets Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi on board the Trade Federation ship at the start of The Phantom Menace.

Can't wait 4 TC-14 it will be a great addition to my collection :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really want TC-14!

Gravatar
By in Italy,

Ok,here in the europe,we have a bag instead of that cool minifig...what is that kind of racism??we don't spend too much?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ive been waiting to buy some sets from recent releases and this just encourages me to wait just that much longer! :) Does anyone know if the figs are available when you purchase from an official lego store or is it only off online orders? We are just getting a store here at the end of the month and i cant wait!! :)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I am in Canada. If I order some LEGO Star Wars off shop.lego.com (worth 75 of course) I will get TC-14 right?

Gravatar
By in France,

^^ go to the online shop, put enough stuff in your basked and the gift should magically appear. If it doesn't appear, it probably means you're not eligible

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Gioppa ... I think you misunderstand ... this deal is for May ... the tote bag deal is for April and is happening in Europe and the US

All we are missing is a preview of the store calendars for Europe for May ... only those will confirm whether we get this deal too. I'm hoping we will, but I'd like that confirmed asap.

I"m really interested in the silver TC-14 minifig given that I missed out on K-3PO in the Hoth Rebel Base set I never bought back in 2007, plus this looks way cooler with the new printed design and coloured eyes. I'm going to have to decide whether I want to spend $75 directly through LEGO or just get sets on sale from Amazon, though. The minifig could be worth it...

TC-14 has shown up on brickshelf, at least in bags: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=5437736

I really like the Hulk fig as well, that's a great idea, will have to consider both of these offers. I'm somewhat glad that I've waited to get most of the Star Wars and Super Heroes sets so far.

Anyone know if Hulk is just with Marvel purchase, or do DC sets factor in as well? Or is it any $50 purchase, not just Super Heroes?

Why can I post stuff on here if the story's outdated? This isn't right...
