The LEGO Bricktober 2022 VIP rewards are starting to get into collectors’ hands and there’s one major difference between them and the original Bricktober sets that were available in the Asian/Canadian markets.
The original sets had a much more premium feel with the flip open box, however, the VIP set uses the standard yellow cardboard box which we’ve seen before with previous GWPs and rewards. It wasn’t mentioned with the Dragon Adventure Ride that it would come in the yellow box and everyone expected the other. The Pirate Adventure Ride did specify that it would be the yellow box version.
LEGO didn’t mention why they switched to the more plain version. I suspect that they didn’t know that it wasn’t going to be an APAC/Canada exclusive and the rest of the world would get them as well. Also it would’ve cost a lot more to roll out the harder flip top boxes than to use the cardboard ones.
There is still the Fantasy Adventure Ride (6427893) and Space Adventure Ride (6427896) left to be released but there’s no mentioning of when those will go up in the VIP Center.
