There was chatter of a brick built LEGO BB-8 in the vein of the LEGO r2-D2 last year and now we have the first official confirmation that it will be a May the 4th promotion.
It is only available on May the 4th and the LEGO Star Wars Mini BB-8 (40288) is redeemable for every USD$75 spend.
The model looks to have the same printed dome like the LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 (30611) and it appears to have printed 6×6 satellite dishes for its body.
The previous R2-D2 was highly sought after and I would expect this to be the same especially since it is only available for just one day.
This should make its way to Asia but it will probably be packaged with different promotional mechanics.
(Thanks to Promobricks for the heads up!)
