Just wanted to bring to your attention that both freebies that are available this month – if you shop directly from LEGO – expire today. We have discussed the specials before (see: LEGO Promotions for September & Beyond), but just as a reminder, the first one is the free LEGO Legends of Chima Worriz’ Fire Bike set that you can get with purchases of $50 or more, and the second is the free exclusive LEGO Classic Spaceman Minifigure (with a little LEGO Classic Space robot). This offer is only available for LEGO VIP members with purchases of $99 or more. So basically if you make a $100 purchase, you will get both promo sets, and of course free shipping. 🙂
I placed an order at the beginning of the month so I got both freebies and I’m very happy with them. The LEGO Legends of Chima Worriz’ Fire Bike is a small polybag with 31 pieces. The minifig is Worriz in his fiery outfit, with the torso printed both front and back, and the legs are printed too. Polybags are nice little sets that work great as extras for your LEGO collection, or also as gifts for others. They are highly desirable by collectors and you can even use them for trading.
The second set is the LEGO Classic Space Minifigure, which is far more special – although I do like both (who doesn’t like free LEGO?!). This second set comes in a heavy collectors’ box with a LEGO Classic Space minifig in white uniform and new-style helmet, and a little black droid that is identical with the one that appeared in the #6931 LEGO Classic Space FX Star Patroller set back from the 1980s – except for one difference; the new version has a short 3L light-saber blade going through the arms/torso assembly to make the robot more sturdy.
The box is actually a sleeve with an inside tray that slides open. It looks fantastic with the LEGO Classic Space and the old LEGO System logos. Inside there is a little booklet with the instructions to assemble the minifig and the robot, and also pictures and a timeline of LEGO Space sets. LEGO went way above and beyond with this set and it is definitely made for collectors! Below is a video-review of the set by the BrickShow, showing you all the details of this exclusive collectors’ item.
I don’t always order from LEGO directly just to get freebies, but this time it is definitely worth it because of the LEGO Classic Space Minifigure box. It’s an awesome set to keep for your collection, and if you decide to sell, it will definitely bring in a pretty price. Right now it goes for about $20-$25 on the secondary market, and I’m sure it will be even more once the promotion is over. Again, this is the last day of the promotion, so if you want one, check out the Online LEGO Shop.
In case you are curious of what I ordered, I got all the newly released Series 3 LEGO Mixels, and four LEGO Technic Racers (the ones with the pull-back mechanism). I haven’t had a Technic set since I was a kid, and I have been curious about these for a while. They are quite large (and can be combined for even larger models), very sturdy, lots of fun to play with, and are only $20 each. I plan to have them around when we have kids over.
So what do you think? Did you get either of the freebies this month? How do you like them? Or are you planning to place a last-minute order before the promotion expires tonight? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
