Earlier today was the LEGO Store Exclusive 2014 Holiday VIP Shopping Event at my local store. When you got in, you were handed an exclusive access double-sided badge and it also includes your name which is pretty neat. You were also given a bag filled with some FREE sets including the Thanksgiving Turkey (40091) and the exclusive Christmas Train Ornament (5002813).
Other than that, all the offers are the same as online for VIPs who didn’t get an invite. I’ll be doing a review of the Christmas Train Ornament in a separate post.
Overall, it was a pretty cool event with some nice freebies. I also got to meet up with a lot of friends in the process and the store employees were awesome as usual. Since I already have the Thanksgiving Turkey (40091) set, I’ll probably be giving it away in a future contest. The Ornament was a nice addition and unexpected since I’ve read about it but didn’t know how to get it.
There’s no official word on how people are selected to these VIP shopping events but I’ve heard people say that it was for high spenders at the store.
