You might remember that when the #10283 LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery was released last year, it was mentioned that LEGO VIP members will also be able to purchase the exclusive Ulysses Space Probe for 1,800 VIP Points. In real life, the Ulysses Space Probe was deployed by the Space Shuttle Discovery in 1990 on a mission to scan the Sun, so the two sets went perfectly together.
Unfortunately, due to overwhelming demand and some glitches and delays, many LEGO fans missed out on the Ulysses Space Probe special. To appease fans, LEGO is re-releasing this highly desirable set in limited quantities. It will be available starting tomorrow, May 17th at the LEGO VIP Center. Please note that due to the limited number of sets, if you already got one last year you will not be able to redeem points for it this time.
If you do purchase the set with your VIP Points, you’ll get a promotional code for the reward, which you can redeem with your next purchase at the Online LEGO Shop. The code is valid for 60 days and must be entered during checkout in the field labeled “Enter Promo Code”. You can only use one promotional code per order. This VIP promotion is subject to availability and only one offer while supplies last.
It is important to note that this re-launch will also be extremely limited. Please set your alarm if this is a reward you are interested in having the opportunity to claim. Here are the times when the promotion will go live per region:
- Australia & New Zealand: May 17th, 9:00 AM AEST / 11:00 AM NZST
- Korea: May 17th, 9:00 AM KST
- Europe: May 17th, 9:00 AM CEST / 8:00 AM BST
- United States & Canada: May 17th, 9:00 AM EDT
For those of you who have been looking forward to this set, I hope that you will be able to get it this time around. And if you don’t have it already, you may also want to pick up the #10283 LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery at the LEGO Creator Expert section of the Online LEGO Shop.
