Win A Platinum LEGO R2-D2 Figurine

r2d2-sweepstakes-subscription

An interesting new competition, with a really cool prize, has just popped up on the LEGO site.

LEGO are giving away two Platinum LEGO R2-D2 figurines and all you need to do is provide your email address, date of birth and country. There is no purchase necessary to enter this draw.

There will be two grand prize winners who will each receive a LEGO® Star Wars™ R2-D2™ Figurine made of platinum, presented with certificate of authenticity in a custom display case. This isn’t just a regular LEGO R2-D2 with a coating. The approximate retail value of each prize is £2,500 (over $4000 AU).

Odds of winning are going to be incredibly slim, but the prize is something that there are literally only two of in the whole world.

You can find the entry form and all of the terms and conditions here: https://shop.lego.com/en-AU/R2D2Contest

New Christmas Offer From LEGO Online

The LEGO online store has updated with a new Christmas offer.

Spend $120 or more and receive a free 24-in-1 LEGO Christmas Build Up (40253) set.

2017 Christmas Buildup Bonus

For those of you not familiar with the Christmas Build Up sets, it is a collection of parts that allows you to build 24 different Christmas themed models. You can’t build all of them at once unfortunately.

Some other news that might be of interest regarding the store:

21312 Women of NASA is now available. While some people have complained about the price (including me) I know there are some people keen to pick this up.

If you still haven’t been able to pick up a Apollo Saturn V set then you may be interested to know that the set is currently available for backorder, with an estimate ship date of December 8th. That ship date should get to you by Christmas.

Double VIP Promotion Now Live

LEGO usually have some sort of double VIP promotion during October and sure if enough we now have not only Double VIP Points but a nice little VIP bonus set too.

VIP Exclusive Set

The 40178 VIP Set will be added to your cart with orders over $200, assuming that you are a VIP customer.

As for the double VIP point offer, this equates to 2 points for every $1.50 spent.

LEGO Looking For Giveaway Suggestions

sophia-cu-with-chat

Everybody knows that LEGO regularly have giveaways on their online store. These bonuses help tempt people to buy at RRP from the official online store. There have been some great giveaways in the past, and there have been some less great ones too.

Now LEGO is directly reaching out to the adult LEGO fan community for suggestions on future giveaways. They have asked partners like this site to find out what people want in a giveaway. I’ll collect your suggestions and then pass on the top 5. Enter your suggestion in the form below and then I will provide a poll to help finalise the top 5.

I’ll be taking suggestions until October 24th, and then from then until October 30th I will feature a poll of your suggestions.

Your suggestion can be anything that LEGO might produce – that mean no new IP and no suggestions that violate LEGO’s rules (drugs, nudity, war etc). More detail is available at the end of the article if you are still unsure.

Warning: Your Millennium Falcon May Cost A Little More Than You Thought

75192 MF Fee Article

The largest ever LEGO set goes on sale for LEGO VIP customers some time tomorrow and if you aren’t already aware it’s expensive – the Australian RRP is $1299.99.

You may think that being the Australian LEGO site, and being charged in Australian dollars that the price you see is the price that you will pay? Unfortunately that isn’t always the case. A lot of credit cards will charge you an international transaction fee if the store is located outside of Australia, regardless of the currency being charged.

Here is a quick look at what the various Australian Banks say about this:

Force Friday Deals From LEGO

It might feel like everything is about the Millennium Falcon right now, but it’s also Force Friday II which means all of the Last Jedi merchandise is now officially available.

I’ll be trying to do a round-up of the sets and prices later today but if you are interested in buying directly from LEGO there are some special offers that you may be interested in…

Triple VIP Points on all Star Wars purchases

FFII Triple VIP

The offer is valid from 1st to 3rd of September 2017.

Free Mini First Order Heavy Assault Walker

FFII Free Heavy Ass Walker

The website says that this offer is for orders equal to or greater than £60 in LEGO Star Wars™ merchandise only. I am guessing that would be about $100 AU. Again this offer runs from September 1st to 3rd.

Exclusive poster for VIP customers

FFII Free Poster

If you are signed in to your VIP account and purchase LEGO Star Wars sets you will receive one of three posters. The website says to come back each day for a different poster but that it is unlikely with the $200 free shipping threshold. This offer is also September 1st to 3rd.

21309 Saturn V Available For Backorder

The hugely popular 21309 Saturn V set is once more available to order from the LEGO Online store. Currently it is listed as on back-order with sets shipping by September 11th. It’s likely that date will extend out as more orders are placed, so get in quick.

Saturn V Backorder August 26

There were a heap of people who emailed me about this so thanks to Matt, Tim, Tony, Marty and Ricky.

If you are still on the fence about the set you can check out my review here.

70620 Ninjago City Now Available For VIPs

The flagship Ninjago Movie set has just been made available for VIP customers, and it’s tempting.

Ninjago City VIP Release

The set will cost you $499.99 but should qualify you for both of the current promotions – Iconic Cave and the Kai’s Dojo Pod.

You will need to be signed in to your LEGO VIP account to be able to add this to your bag.

Are you ordering one?

Free Kai’s Dojo Pod Now Available From LEGO Online

With the Ninjago Movie getting closer and the highly antipated Ninjago City released soon LEGO have today released a new promotion on their online store.

Free Kai’s Dojo Pod with any Ninjago purchase

Ninjago Kai Dojo Pod

Surprisingly this offer has a fairly long run time – August 14th to 29th October 2017 (or while stocks last).

The qualifier for this says Ninjago sets, so regular non-movie Ninjago sets should count.

I did a quick test and both the Kai’s Dojo Pod and Iconic Cave set were added to my cart with a Ninjago set over $45.

Thanks to Chris for first letting me know about this offer

Free Iconic Cave Set Now Available From LEGO Online

The LEGO online store has been update with details of a new offer.

Here are the terms of the offer; LEGO® Iconic Cave Set (5004936) offer is valid for orders online at shop.LEGO.com and telephone orders from 10th to 30th August 2017, or while stocks last. Qualifying purchase must be greater than $45 in LEGO merchandise only. One set per household.
