There are several interesting updates from the Online LEGO Shop that I wanted to make sure you’re aware of. You can read all about the new offers and promotions below.
➡ LEGO SETS WITH DOUBLE VIP POINTS: First of all, there are two sets this month offered with Double VIP Points: The #70421 LEGO Hidden Side El Fuego’s Stunt Truck, and the #60225 LEGO City Rover Testing Drive. Both of these are a bit older sets, but if you’re interested in them, this is a good time to pick them up.
➡ 2017 LEGO COMIC-CON MINIFIG SWEEPSTAKES: Until June 21st, you can enter the LEGO VIP Monthly Sweepstakes for a chance to win the super rare Deadpool Duck minifigure. Redeem 50 points to enter (maximum 15 entries per VIP member allowed). Many will enter, only one will win! This minifig goes for around $300 on the secondary market, so it’s pretty special. You can enter the sweepstakes at the LEGO VIP site.
➡ FREE LEGO HOT ROD WITH PURCHASE: We talked about this offer at the beginning of the month, but I wanted to add it here for the sake of completeness, and because this little set is so cool! The #40409 LEGO Creator Hot Rod is free with purchases of $85 or more until June 21st. This is a fantastic minifig-scale replica of the #5541 LEGO Model Team Blue Fury from 1995. I just built mine a couple of days ago, and I like it even better in person. It’s six-studs wide, so fits well with the LEGO Modular Buildings or with any LEGO City setup. This offer is valid on all purchases at the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO POLYBAGS AVAILABLE: LEGO polybag sets used to be sold or given away as freebies at official LEGO stores and at various LEGO retailers. However, under the current difficult and uncertain circumstances, LEGO decided to add them to the Online LEGO Shop, so people can get them easily. As they are in several different themes, it’s not possible to find them in one place, but you can go to “Shop by Price”, select “Under $25”, then sort the results by “Low to High”. All the polybag sets are $3.99, so you should be able to spot them. There are some cool ones and rare ones that used to be retailer exclusives and sought after by collectors. So check them out!
I know many sets in the U.S. are shown as backordered or out of stock, but this is because the LEGO factory in Mexico is still closed and LEGO has to reroute some sets for us from the factories in Europe and China. If you do see a set you like that shows as backordered, you can still purchase it, but there may be a bit of delay. I encourage you to place an order anyway. This is what I have been doing myself, and waiting an extra week or two is not too bad. LEGO is doing their best, but there is a lot going on in the world right now that’s out of control. So please be patient, keep building, and keep supporting the brand.
