Billund, April 15, 2024: As celebrations for the LEGO Star Wars 25th anniversary continue throughout the year, fans should hold on tight to their TIE Interceptors as a lot of exciting things are happening. May the 4th be with you!

 New 25th anniversary products are coming for May the 4th:

The TIE Interceptor building set that was part of the first launch of the Ultimate Collector Series in 2000 is back in a new and redesigned version. Admirers of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi™ can relive the action of the movie, as they recreate the distinctive wings, detailed cockpit, and laser cannons of the magnificent LEGO Star Wars TIE Interceptor™ building set.

The 1,931-piece set is an impressive 40 centimeters/16 inches long and comes complete with an exclusive TIE Pilot minifigure and Mouse Droid figure, currently limited to this set. The model is mounted on a stand with a printed plaque and includes a printed brick (3.2 centimeters/ 1.3 inches wide, 0.8 centimeters/ 0.3 inches long and 3.2 centimeters/ 1.3 inches high) with the LEGO Star Wars anniversary logo.

Fans of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace™ can dive into building a dynamic snapshot of Tatooine with the Mos Espa Podrace™ Diorama building set. The 718-piece display set includes Anakin Skywalker, the Arch Canyon and a plaque with Qui-Gon Jinn’s advice: “Remember. Concentrate on the moment. Feel. Don’t think. Use your instincts.”

For those who have already ventured to the dark side, the 640-piece Darth Maul’s Sith Infiltrator™ building set could be ideal. Fans can fold out the wings and retract the landing gear for flight, fire the 2 spring-loaded shooters and press the trigger to drop 3 DRK-1 probe droids from the front compartment.

Alternatively, fans can check out the brick-built destroyer droid, Droideka™ set with 583 pieces. Those who prefer brick-built display characters are also in for a treat with the set of six collectible LEGO BrickHeadz™ figures featuring the characters of Jar Jar Binks, Anakin Skywalker, Queen Amidala, Captain Panaka, Qui-Gon Jinn and Darth Maul.

For Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith™ fans, there is also a BrickHeadz™ Clone Commander Cody set.

Anyone who is team Grogu will be happy that they can now immerse themselves into the building experience of the 221-piece BARC Speeder™ Escape alongside Kelleran Beq.

And the May the 4th celebrations continue in LEGO Fortnite, with exciting new LEGO Star Wars content to discover in the survival crafting game beginning May 3rd. Fans should keep their sights to the stars in LEGO Fortnite later in the month!

Also launching for pre-order on May 1st is the new LEGO Star Wars Coffee Table Book, The Force of Creativity – 312-page hardcover book in a slipcase with collective memorabilia which takes fans on a journey through interviews with more than 50 contributors from the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm. The book includes development art, character designs and gives fans a true insight into the LEGO Star Wars galaxy. The book will be available for pre-order here.

May the 4th be with all LEGO Star Wars fans! We are excited to continue our 25th anniversary celebration with an exciting line-up of new sets, events, and experiences for fans to enjoy. I’m looking forward to seeing how fans choose to celebrate all things LEGO Star Wars on this iconic day around the world, said Mike Ilacqua, Head of Product, LEGO Star Wars products at the LEGO Group.

Fans are also invited to join the 25-Second Film Festival, which will be open until April 22nd and culminates on May 4th when the festival truly kicks off, with all videos featured on the LEGO YouTube channel, as well as highlights on LEGO.com.

The film festival is inviting fans to submit their own 25-second clip that recreates their favourite Star Wars moments or forges a new one with LEGO Star Wars building sets and minifigures they treasure.

From May 1st to 5th, LEGO Star Wars fans will receive all three Gift with Purchases when purchasing the new LEGO Star Wars TIE Interceptor™: including the Battle of Yavin collectible depicting Darth Vader’s cockpit view, the Trade Federation Troop Carrier set commemorating the 25th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, and the AAT™ building set. These offerings coincide with the LEGO Star Wars May the 4th Livestream Event featuring special offers, set reveals, designer presentation and exciting giveaways like a signed TIE Interceptor™ set in the US, UK, and Germany on May 1st.
