Is the LEGO Black VIP Card Promotion Continuing?

LEGO Black VIP Card

The last time I’ve talked about the LEGO Black VIP card was a few weeks ago where I stated that a new batch of cards are being created due to a glitch in the system and now, there’s a new revelation about how to acquire the card. The original deadline to get the card was December 31, 2017 so technically you can’t get it anymore even if you have purchased the set this year but that could be changing according some information that I’ve received.

A reader named Tim purchased the UCS Falcon this past weekend at a New York LEGO Brand Store and the manager there told him that LEGO would be continuing the Black VIP card promotion that ended last year. Tim was then told to verify his LEGO VIP address because he’ll also be getting it as well even though the deadline has passed.

I’m not sure if this is just an isolated incident or if LEGO is actually continuing the Black VIP card promotion. I would suggest asking LEGO customer service before making your purchase to see if they are actually continuing it since the webpage about it still has the old information. Even if you’ve made a purchase of the Falcon this year, it wouldn’t hurt to ask customer service to see what’s going on.

Let us know in the comments below if you’ve had the same situation and also have been told that the Black VIP card promotion would be continuing.

LEGO Star Wars Ahch-To Island Training (75200) Designer Video

In something slightly unusual for LEGO to do, they have recently released a designer video for the LEGO Star Wars Ahch-To Island Training (75200). This is different because it is not a direct-to-consumer set that usually does it for but just a simple set that you get purchase at any retailer. The video also goes back to the old style where the designer, César, talks more about the set itself and its play features. This is something that fans have missed on the newer designer videos. Hopefully, LEGO continues to do designer videos for these smaller sets like this in the future. I’ve recently done a review of this set if you want to check it out as well.

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Season 2 DVD Available on March 13

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Season 2

It has been revealed today that Season Two of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures will be on home media on March 13. The DVD will include all 12 episodes as well as 5 bonus shorts. For you pin collectors, there is also an exclusive LEGO Darth Vader pin to go along with it as well. You can now pre-order the DVD on Amazon for $18 and you’ll receive it on release date.

At the end of the first season, the Freemaker family found a new home with the rebel fleet. Their new circumstances bring them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords, and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC, a terrifying hunter droid who continually modifies himself to fit any occasion. In response to these threats, Rowan’s powers grow and strengthen until he has a vision of a sleek, invulnerable ship that can save the Rebellion and stop the Empire in its tracks — the Arrowhead. The catch is, the Arrowhead is a ship only Rowan can build. Once again, it’s up to the youngest Freemaker to save the galaxy.

Is a LEGO Star Wars UCS Cloud City Set Coming Soon?

Earlier today, LEGO announced that no projects passed the LEGO Ideas Second 2017 Review Stage. LEGO gave a pretty thorough explanation of some of the criteria they look at to see if a project meets that requirement. One of the criteria listed was New (and confidential) products currently being developed internally. Hasan also talked about it a little more in the video below and at 2:20, he says something that’s censored out.

If a project, let’s call it “X,” is not approved in the review because it is too similar to a product that’s been developed internally, then naturually we wouldn’t be able to share that news with everyone that “X” has not been approved due to the giant (bleep) that’s coming out.

Hasan also says the censored words again at 2:29 as the camera zooms in a little. I don’t know about you but these are major hints at something that’s coming out soon. If you look at the projects that qualified for review, one of the projects is I Am Your Father which is the scene where Darth Vader reveals to Luke Skywalker that he is his father. Now going back to the video, to me it appears that Hasan says either “Bespin City” or “Bespin set” and it has been rumored that there is a D2C set (75222) that is reported to be the UCS Cloud City. Given that the project scene is from Cloud City, I would say that it matches up nicely.

Whether or not there is a Bespin set coming soon, I’m just doing my analysis and connecting the dots to what has been shown in the LEGO Ideas video and rumors that have been floating around. Again, this is just conjecture and should be taken with a grain of salt until officially announced by LEGO. What do you think are the censored word(s) that Hasan said in the video?

**The image above is the original Cloud City set from 2003.**

LEGO Star Wars 2018 Buildable Figure Sales on Amazon

For even more LEGO deals from Amazon, there are some new 2018 Star Wars Buildable Figures that you may be interested in picking up. One of the more notable sets that is on sale is Boba Fett (75533). It is going for $23.99 which is 20% off the regular price. As of this writing, there are only 13 left of this set available at this price.

Darth Vader (75534) is also on sale with it going for $31.99. It is still a little expensive for what you get, even at 20% off, but it’s better than the regular price of $39.99.

Next up is the Elite Praetorian Guard (75529) which is only $20, also 20% off the normal price. You may need a few of these guys to recreate the scene from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Finally, we have everyone’s favorite Wookiee, Chewbacca (75530). He is actually only 19% off coming in at $28.49. Again, he’s a bit more expensive but he is also a larger Buildable Figure.
