Lego R2-D2 Will Be Available Tonight Ahead Of Star Wars Day

To celebrate May the 4th, Lego is releasing a new R2-D2 Lego set. It's pricey and chock-full of cool features.


Lego's new Star Wars R2-D2 set will be available to order tonight, April 30 at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET. This is Lego's most elaborate build of the iconic droid yet. The massive set is exclusive to the Lego Store, which means it might sell out pretty fast. Lego R2-D2 is releasing just in time for Star Wars Day next week.

As with all major Lego sets, R2-D2 comes with a commemorative plaque with facts about the droid. This plaque is more special than usual, though, as it highlights the 50th anniversary of Lucasfilm and includes a small R2-D2 figure that sits on top of the plaque.

In other Lego news, Luigi is joining the Lego Super Mario lineup. The Luigi Starter Course releases August 1 and is available to preorder now at multiple retailers, including the Lego Store and Best Buy.
