    I saw a built R2-D2 at the LBS store today. It really is a nice looking set.

    I just ordered R2-D2 this afternoon and the "May the 4th" Promotion is already active. The TC-14 and the poster were added to my order. I also received free shipping to Canada.

    The limit on S7 minifugures has been set to 32 this time around. That means you can order enough figures to qualify for free shipping without purchasing anything else!

    the promotions did not work last night at 1205am ish and did not work right now (10pm). Did you do anything special to get the tc14 in the shopping cart?

    Isn't there also a R2-D2 poster this weekend as well, I'm betting that the 2nd R2-D2 line is the poster.

    Oh wait, I see that there are actually 3 R2-D2 lines in your list. Nevermind, not sure what the 2nd one is than.

    R2D2 POSTER GWP Item: 5001162 1 CAD 0.00

    Very interesting. Why are there 3 lines for R2-D2? R2-D2 should be #10225, not #5001166. Seems like the site messed up and labeled it as #5001166.

    From the looks of it, 5001166 will be a R2-D2, 5001162 a poster and 10225 as an unknown item (poster, another r2-d2 or just nothing?). Would be kinda sweet to get 2 R2-D2s for the price of 1!

    Im guessing R2-D2 KIT Item: 5001166 is referring to the package of all three items you get in this deal.

    According to Lego Direct, you can only get the TC-14 right now added to your order if you order the R2D2!!

    Hi, so are you saying that anybody who orders the R2D2 now gets the may 4th promotion in advance? Or is this a Canada only thing? Or some random people will get it and others not?

    Anyone. This coming from a customer service rep. on the 800 number. I placed an order for regular Star Wars sets and it didn't appear. When I called to cancel, I told her it was because the TC-14 wasn't apoearing in my order. She said " It is only appearing right now if you order the R2D2. It is a highly anticipated set." After a few minutes on hold though, she was able to add it to my order, but it will ship seperately.

    According to the VIP email I just got the early release of TC-14 and the poster is a VIP-only promotion.

    Use the force this May 4th and 5th and you'll receive some fantastic LEGO® Star Wars™ gifts plus free shipping when you spend $75 or more at a LEGO Store or via shop.LEGO.com.

    You can qualify for these offers and also earn an instant VIP Reward when you purchase the brand new R2-D2 ™ Exclusive. This great addition to the LEGO Star Wars™ theme measures over 12 inches high by 7.1 inches wide and will keep even the most devoted young Jedi busy for hours… happy building!


    Apparently the value of the minifig is $4.99 and the poster 40 cents :eh:

    I thought the R2-D2 minifigure was include in the set, not as a separate bonus item. But if they do put the minifigure in a polybag or something, I wouldn't complain. :)
