LEGO Store Site Currently Offline

LEGO Offline

Some brief news: If you head over to the online LEGO store you may notice a very uninformative 503 Service Unavailable error.

Don’t worry – it’s not just you. We have seen multiple reports of the same error. Hopefully the site will be back online later today.

Winter Soldier Minifigure Returns

If you’re familiar with comics then you’ll know that comic book characters very rarely disappear for good. They’re always popping up again when you least expect them. Clearly the Winter Soldier Minifigure is following the same logic.

First it was released as a bonus with the Helicarrier, then it was the August bonus, then it disappeared (seemingly due to a stock issue). Now it’s back!

It’s important to note that this offer does end on the 15th of August and there’s a chance it will be gone for good after that. If you placed an order between August 1st and today it might be worth calling LEGO Customer support to see if you can get one of these added to your order.

Winter Soldier Minifigure Sold Out

winter-soldier-gwp-specials-eu-en SOLD OUT

Bad news for Marvel fans hoping to get a Winter Soldier Minifigure with their August order – the offer is already sold out.

We spoke to LEGO Customer Service this morning and they confirmed that the Winter Soldier Minifigure is sold out and they are working to have that removed from the website.

The fact that it is only August 3rd and the August offer is already sold out is extremely disappointing.

We did some tests on the site and noticed that the Friends Red Carpet set was being added to our bag, even though our order did not contain $45 worth of Friends, Elves or Disney Princess sets (that was the original requirement). Customer service was not able to confirm that this was being offered for all orders as a replacement.

If you placed an order on Saturday or Sunday (August 1st or 2nd) and did not receive the Winter Soldier minifigure it might be worth calling LEGO Customer Service and discussing the issue with them – they may be able to add the Friends set to your order if it wasn’t already added.

Updates

Since this article was posted there have been a few updates

A few people have pointed out that the Friend promotion was applying to all orders since it started. We incorrectly assumed that this was a recent change but apparently that promotion has just always been a bit wonky.

The online store has also been updated to remove the banner for the Winter Soldier minifigure. The page is still active but there is no reference to it on the site any more.

New LEGO Online Offer Now Available

This offer hadn’t been released when we posted our last two articles, but if you ordered some Scooby-Doo sets or the Big Bang Theory set then you may have noticed a surprise in your cart.

Don’t Panic About Those Sold Out Modulars

If you’ve been on the online LEGO store lately you may have been shocked to see that quite a few sets are listed as Sold Out.

Modulars Sold Out

While a product being listed as sold out can be an indication that the set is being retired – that isn’t always the case. We spoke to LEGO about the issue and have been informed that these products are on backorder. They will be available again, but there is no specific date.

If you spot a LEGO set on the website that is saying it is sold out, the best option is always to call the customer service number and ask about that particular set. It’s possible that the set is retired, or it may just be that LEGO don’t know when that product will be back in stock. Our reply from LEGO didn’t include the status of every set currently listed as sold out, and we have heard that there are quite a few.

The Australian customer service number is 1800 683 100

21109 Exo Suit On Sale At LEGO Online Store

21109 Exo Suit On Sale

We were told that the Exo Suit set was going to be decommissioned back in February, but it appears that they are still taking up space in a warehouse somewhere.

In an attempt to clear stock LEGO has reduced the price of the set to just $35.00 (down from $49.99) which won’t meet the threshold for free shipping, but may just be worth adding to a larger order.

When the Exo Suit was first announced we expected that it was going to be a hit, but it seems that it didn’t sell as well as many expected.

There are also a few other items on sale including one other set (60044 Mobile Police Unit down from $49.99 to $34.99).
