LEGO Star Wars 40686 Battle Droid Carrier GWP Rumoured For 1st May 2024

The LEGO Star Wars May 2024 models are already starting to be announced with both 75378 BARC Speeder Escape and 75383 Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator being officially revealed just the other day. May does not only mark a new wave of LEGO Star Wars sets however, it also marks the biggest day of the year for Star Wars fans: Star Wars Day.

As with every year, LEGO will once again be celebrating Star Wars Day with this new wave of sets and a brand new D2C of 75382 UCS TIE Interceptor. Along with a brand new 18+ model for the licensed theme, a brand new Gift With Purchase will also be releasing from the 1st of May 2024 in order to celebrate all these brand new releases.

In particular, this GWP is 40686 Battle Droid Carrier which includes a total of 262 pieces available from the 1st of May 2024. Sadly, 40686 will most likely only last around a week but will be free with any LEGO Star Wars purchases over the threshold of $160.

The first Battle Droid Carrier in LEGO form released over 20 years ago back in 2001 of 7126 Battle Droid Carrier. 2024 looks to be a tribute/remake of that original LEGO Star Wars set with 100 more pieces utilising the more modern and technical building techniques. This time as well, one more Minifigure will be included with six of the regular Battle Droids and two blue Battle Droid pilots.
