LEGO Black VIP Card Shipping Clarification

LEGO Black VIP Card

If you’ve purchase the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) before December 31, 2017, you will be eventually getting the black VIP card if you’ve haven’t already. I’ve gotten an update for a reader who emailed in about their experience with LEGO Customer Service about his situation.

It appears there was a glitch in their system with VIPs who have opted out or never consented to physical mailings and their cards weren’t created with the original batch that went out last year. LEGO has since created a new list for those particular VIPs and their cards will be sent out soon.

Also, the rep also stated that any upcoming special promotions that goes with the black VIP card are attached to the VIP account and you don’t actually need to have the physical card on hand. This info is very helpful because I’ve had a lot of questions come in about it.

Hopefully this answers the main questions that have been asked by those who have purchased the UCS Falcon and haven’t gotten their cards yet. Again this only applies to those who got it before last year’s deadline and people who ordered the Falcon after the new year restock will not be getting the card. Thanks to David for emailing in about it.


LEGO Star Wars Defense of Crait (75202) Amazon Sale

One of the newer 2018 sets for LEGO Star Wars is the Defense of Crait (75202) from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and you can currently get it on sale on Amazon. The set is at $67.99 which is 20% off the retail price of $84.99. This makes the set a bit more attractive as it is a bit overpriced at the recommended retail price.

This exciting Defense of Crait LEGO® Star Wars toy has everything a Resistance warrior needs to play out the epic final battle from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The set features a highly detailed Resistance Ski Speeder with spring-loaded shooters, removable engine section, minifigure cockpit and a lowering stabilizer. There’s also a command tower with stud shooter on top and assorted weapons and tool elements, as well as a foldout trench section with rotating laser cannon and spring-loaded shooter, plus a gun emplacement with a stud shooter. Includes 5 minifigures.


LEGO at the 2018 London Toy Fair

One of the more exciting times at the beginning of the year are the upcoming toy fairs and the first one coming up is the London Toy Fair. For many years now, LEGO exhibits the summer line up at the London Toy Fair and we get the first details for various sets and themes. Unfortunately for 2018, it doesn’t look like LEGO will be at the London Toy Fair as they are not listed as one of the exhibitors of the event. This is the first time since I’ve started this site that they won’t be attending.

I’m not sure of the reasoning behind it but the financial results from last year may have contributed to it as the company tries to focus on rebounding in 2018. Another reasoning could be to avoid reporting details of the summer sets but that’s trivial because there are already leaks and it doesn’t look to be stopping any time soon. I remember Huw from Brickset said that LEGO last year was only allowing retailers to the booth.

Whatever the reasoning, it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting any details of the LEGO summer 2018 sets at London so we’ll have to wait another week for the Nuremberg Toy Fair where we’ll actually get images of the sets. Again, we’ll have to rely on our German friends Promobricks and Zusammengebaut for the details. There’s also the New York Toy Fair in the middle of February and we hope to have someone on the floor for us at that event. I’m already in contact with someone and it looks like they’re willing to help out so stay tuned for that as well.

Update: Promobricks has confirmed that they will be at Nuremberg and will be allowed to take pictures but there will be some restrictions on the images.


LEGO Masters Looking for Builders for Series Two

The hit UK show, LEGO Masters, is back for a second series and they are now looking for builders to appear on the show. If you’re not familiar with what LEGO Masters is about, it’s basically a building competition for amateurs and contestants’ builds are judged in a number of categories. One of the judges is LEGO’s Vice President of Design, Matthew Ashton. The only bad news is that you have to be a resident of the UK or Ireland to apply. Now if the US can get a similar show…

Rumored LEGO Harry Potter 2018 Collectible Minifigures List

It looks like there are more rumors coming out for the return of LEGO Harry Potter later this year. As I reported before, it seems there will be a Collectible Minifigures series for the theme and now it appears that there’s a reported list of minifigures of this wave. A majority of characters listed haven’t appeared as minifigure form so that’s nice. This also fits in to the whole Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme that the forums are talking about.

Harry Potter – Accessories: cloak, sorting hat
Ron Weasley – Accessories: cloak, frog, sweets
Hermione Granger – Accessories: cloak, wand, book
James Potter – Accessory: Golden Snitch, broom, Quidditch robes
Lily Potter – Accessory: baby with scar on forehead
Fred Weasley – Accessories: Marauder’s Map, fireworks

Dudley Dursley in Pajamas – Accessories: cake, pig tail
Rolanda Hooch – Accessories: broom, whistle
Bloody Baron
Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington (Nearly Headless Nick)
Gray Lady
Fat Friar
Moaning Myrtle – Accessory: Tom Riddle’s diary
Sirius Black – Accessories: Dog

Like I’ve stated before, this is an unofficial rumored list so take it with a grain of salt until LEGO announces it.
