More information on May the Fourth promotions

Posted by ,

Bricks&Blocks has just published an image of the May store calendar for USA and Canada which provides information on the promotions that'll be running that month in brand stores and at shop.LEGO.com. They are:

  • 75095 TIE Fighter will be available from May 2nd
  • 5002947 Admiral Yularen polybag will be free with Star Wars purchases over $75 May 2nd-4th
  • 30305 Spider-Man Super Jumper polybag will be free with purchases over $50, for most of the month, I believe.

In addition, the second series of Simpsons CMFs will be available, and the Kwik-E-Mart will be on general sale, having been made available to VIPs on 15th April.

Talking of April, I've not yet heard what offers will be running in Europe but in the USA I believe Ninjago 30293 Kai Drifter polybag will be free with purchases over $50. When I have more information I'll let you know.
