Amelia Earhart GWP now available

While the LEGO stores around the country offered this a few weeks ago I know a lot of people were hanging out for an online store release. Well now LEGO have pulled the trigger and the Amelia Earhart Tribute set is available.

You’ll need to spend $199 or more to get your hands on this one. The offer ends March 14, if it lasts that long.

All the details can be found here.

LEGO was kind enough to send me one of these so keep and eye out for my thoughts soon.

40416 Ice Skating Rink Review – December’s GWP

I don’t want to alarm you but it’s actually December. What a year.

If, somehow, you still have some money left after all the recent sales then you may want to check out this latest GWP offer. You can get a free Ice Skating Rink set with any purchase over $209.

LEGO was kind enough to send me this one ahead of time so here are my thoughts…

With international travel off the table this year the only chance we have for enjoying a white Christmas is to live vicariously through the lives of LEGO minifigures. It has been over 30 degrees here for days and I am pretty jealous of these two minifigures. You get a man and woman and I’m a romantic so I’m going to go ahead and assume that this is a scene from a cheesy Christmas rom-com.

Cyber Monday Deal: Get a $30 VIP Voucher for half the normal points

vip-rewards-cyber-monday-2020

UPDATE: Sorry everybody – this offer is somehow sold out. It seems that LEGO has been caught up in the great binary shortage of 2020. So stupid.

The LEGO VIP Rewards Centre is currently offering a pretty great deal for anybody with some VIP points to us.

For today only you can get a $30 voucher for just 1350 points. This is half the normal cost of the voucher. This is a great way to save a bit on your next order.

The voucher has a 30 day expiry so you could potentially get the voucher today and spend it tomorrow when a great new GWP set gets released.

You can find this voucher offer in the VIP Rewards Centre. [affiliate link]

Thanks to Andrew for the details.

Double VIP Points from October 8-20

Double VIP Thumb New

People who have been LEGO fans for a few years won’t be shocked to learn that LEGO is once again doing a Double VIP point period in October. It really has become something of an annual tradition.

This year the Double VIP period runs from October 8th until October 20th. Which means it ends just before the VIP release of the Batwing, weird.

I’m not sure exactly what you are going to buy to earn your double VIP points as most of the popular exclusives are out of stock again/still. If you do find something worth getting let me know.

Head over to LEGO.com now to start shopping [Affiliate link].
