Visit a Toys R Us store on Saturday, May 6th from 12-2PM for a FREE Lego Star Wars building event. Click here to find a location near you.
Update: Apparently, there’s a sign up form for the event and it is revealed on the page that the build will be a Micro Princess Leia. There’s a limited number of spots available for that day so sign up if you wish to attend. I’m not sure if the rules have changed and if walk-ups are accepted. I would call your store to confirm.
There’s now an image of the May 2017 LEGO Store Calendar and we can now see some of the promotions and events that will be happening during the month.
- May 1: LEGO Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder (75144) available for purchase to general public.
- May 2-3: VIP Monthly Mini Model Build will be a Race Car.

- May 4-7: As I reported, the LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 (30611) polybag will be the May the 4th promo. Instead of being a $75 Star Wars purchase, it’ll actually be a $50 purchase to get it.
