When the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) was announced last week, some fans were wondering if there was anything exclusive that was included with the set. The first edition of the original 10179 Millennium Falcon included a Certificate of Authenticity which was signed by former LEGO president Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen and Product Designer Jens Kronvold Frederiksen.
We haven’t heard anything about anything exclusive during the press release but it looks like Zusammengebaut has gotten some new information about something that will be included. If you saw my post of the brochure, the back of it shows a black LEGO VIP card which might have been a hint. According to a German [email protected] ad, it seems that fans who are buying the set at LEGO Stores or on [email protected] when it is officially released on September 14 for Early Access will also get a limited edition VIP card.
Whether that same promotion carries over to here in the US remains to be seen. I also wonder if there’s anything special printed on the back of the card or if it’s just a regular VIP card that we can use. We’ll just have to wait for our LEGO email or until the [email protected] is updated to see if we get the same thing as our friends in Germany.
Update: I’ve been told that it will indeed be available here in the US. It is available to the customers who purchase the UCS Millennium Falcon until the end of 2017 and it will be mailed to you at a later date. The benefits of the black VIP card will include special LEGO Star Wars promotions in 2018 for cardholders only.
