Lego ToysRUs Millenium Falcon

Like every year we see several Star Wars themed events for “May the 4th”. One of those promotions is a ToysRUs event with different challenges for a chance to win some Star Wars toys.

I usually keep a couple of items on my wishlist, so I can purchase them later, when an interesting promotion comes along.

In May of 2017 Lego gave away 40268 R3-M2. While this particular promotion wasn’t the reason for my purchase I still ended up with my own little astromech droid. Continue reading “Lego 40268 – R3-M2”
