Today is the last day to get your order in for the LEGO Double VIP Points shopping event on the LEGO Shop. This will most likely be the time that you can earn double points for a few months. What’s nice about this time is that it also works on pre-orders including items revealed during LEGO Con 2022 like the LEGO Icons Galaxy Explorer (10497) and LEGO Avatar Toruk Makto & Tree of Souls (75574). There are also a lot of sets that are still available like the LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime (10302) which is one of my favorite sets in 2022.
Again if you didn’t hear it yet, there will be a price increase on various LEGO sets starting in August and September so now is the best time to get anything on your wishlist to take advantage of double points and with the current price. Unfortunately, I do not know which sets will get the price bump but there are lists floating around online that you can reference however I can’t confirm that they will get it.
