Today LEGO opened their 100th North America LEGO Brand Store at the Crossgates Mall in Albany, NY and to celebrate, all brand stores gave away an exclusive minifigure and poster. With purchases of $50 or more, you can get the 100th LEGO Store minifigure that is in the same San Diego Comic Con clamshell style with a backing card. The card itself is metallic and it shows the 100 LEGO Stores in North America.
For the minifigure, it is the same as the LEGO Shop Employee Minifigure (5001622) polybag from 2015 but this new one has exclusive printing of 100 LEGO Stores in North America on the back.
As for the poster, it is 11×17 and it is similar to the backing card with the metallic sheen and it shows the employee minifigure on the bottom.
Overall, LEGO did not announce this promotion and it was a total surprise for a majority of people. The only reason that I got it was I saw people posting images of it online and I hurried over to my store to get one. Again, you have to make a purchase of $50 or more at a LEGO Brand Store, while supplies last.
Update: Apparently there was an email blast that was sent out but I didn’t get that email even though I’m signed up for them. This promotion will run starting today until Sunday.
