You’d think offering the 40288 BB-8 polybag would be enough to keep fans excited wouldn’t you? But no, because LEGO has upped the ante and has spiced the pot (to stay in keeping with the Solo trope) by adding a few exclusives to attendee’s shopping experiences.
“These were free for every $25 dollars in LEGO Star Wars purchases at the Big Shop at LEGOLAND California this weekend during Star Wars Days. So, say you buy a UCS Y-Wing, you can get the whole gang for free. The printed pamphlet said one free for $50 and one per transaction but they the price point was lower and were pretty generous at the register.”
And in an attempt to really get one upon LEGOLAND Florida, they are also offering the polybagged mini 30381 TIE Fighter. Regular readers will remember that this was first revealed as a Walmart promotional set, but hasn’t been made available yet.
Lucky park-goers will be able to purchase these at The Big Shop and Empire Emporium (while supplies last)for $4.99. Further thanks to From Bricks To Bothans who shared the news and their photos with us.
You might have missed last weekend’s opportunity but don’t worry though, because you aren’t too late to attend LEGO Star Wars Days on June 9th to 10th. Check out LEGOLANDCalifornia.com for ticketing information so you don’t miss out!
