There are some current and upcoming promotions at LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop I wanted to make sure you know about. They can be helpful with budgeting and planning future purchases. So take a look.
The #10272 LEGO Creator Old Trafford Manchester United set we talked about a few days ago is now available for LEGO VIP members (wider release will be on February 1st). If you are a LEGO VIP member and purchase the set between January 16 and 31st, you will get an exclusive #5006171 LEGO United Trinity Statue with minifig versions of George Best, Denis Law, and Sir Bobby Charlton, who helped Manchester United become the first English club to win the European Cup in 1968. It’s a pretty nice freebie that should be especially interesting to collectors. To purchase the set and get the freebie, visit the LEGO Creator Expert section of the Online LEGO Shop.
During the entire month of February, LEGO will be offering two sets with Double VIP Points; the #70432 LEGO Hidden Side Haunter Fairground, and the #41393 LEGO Friends Baking Competition. Both of these are excellent sets. The baking competition in particular is one of my most favorite sets from the January releases. It’s truly delightful! You can check out all the new LEGO Friends and LEGO Hidden Side sets at the Online LEGO Shop.
Also, remember that right now LEGO is offering Double VIP Points on two of the new sets. The #60246 LEGO City Police Station and the #75272 LEGO Star Wars Sith TIE Fighter from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker film. You can find both of them at the Online LEGO Shop.
A couple of other promotions that are currently active are the free #30624 LEGO Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Minifigure with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $40 or more until January 31st, and the free #40355 LEGO Year of the Rat set with purchases of $80 or more until January 26th. Both offers are valid at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
LEGO is planning to kick off their first Exclusive Minifigure Sweepstake at the LEGO VIP Rewards Center in February with a 2012 LEGO San Diego Comic-Con Shazam! minifigure. LEGO VIP members will be able to enter the competition between February 10th and March 2nd by redeeming 50 VIP points (up to a maximum of 15 entries) with the winner being drawn at random.

Please note that some countries are not covered in this activity due to local regulations. Approved countries are Austria, Belgium, Canada (excluding Quebec), Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, United Kingdom and U.S. For those countries where LEGO cannot legally run this type of promotion, they are currently seeking alternative promotional options, to ensure they can proceed with a near-global approach as regularly as possible.
The LEGO VIP Rewards Center team intends to operate similar sweepstakes every month. Upcoming minifigure sweepstakes will include a signed Star Wars minifigure and an exclusive version of a Marvel character. With regards to other items upcoming at the LEGO VIP Reward Center (dates to be confirmed) are designer-signed LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer sets and designer-signed Star Wars Visual Dictionary copies. So, keep an eye on the LEGO VIP Reward Center for updates.

Wow! A Shazam! giveaway? That’s cool! The Manchester United freebie is cool too, but I have no interest in that set.
It’s not a giveaway. It’s a sweepstake. The chances of winning are probably minuscule…
Ha! I completely forgot about those vip reward options. They should integrate the sites better so I don’t have to go to two separate websites.
Is the trinity gift gone already? It doesn’t show up on the Lego shop at home website
Hm… it appears it might be the case. It was there last time I looked, but now I don’t see it anymore. It might be worth giving them a call.
You gave up on the monster avatars? I liked the purple colors and the nerdy know-it-all look of mine…
Ha-ha! Fine, I set it back for ya. I’m going to be doing some changes around the site in the next couple of weeks or so, as I really have to make the site responsive. But yeah, we can keep the monsters. 😀
Is it going to be very different? I hate website changes and the current layout works just fine for me. Even on mobile, I can just zoom in.
The theme we are using right now has been retired for some time, so even though I like it too, we do need to upgrade. It’s by the same company, and I will be using the default setup, so things will look and behave very similar. The main difference is going to be that the new theme will make the site responsive. It’s actually working really well. I have been playing with it on my test site. 🙂
It looks like the stadium freebie is now out. I’m surprized. I wasn’t expecting this set to sell well in the US.
