LEGO has revealed another exclusive minifigure they will be giving away at San Diego Comic Con 2019 with LEGO Stranger Things Barb. This minifigure will be available on July 19 through a randomized instant win drawing. I’m sure Barb will be very sought after for collectors and fans of Stranger Things.
If you’re a fan of the TRON movies, you’ll be glad to know that the LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy (21314) set is on sale over on Amazon. It is currently priced at only $22.99 which is 34% off the normal price. For two Light Cycles and three minifigures, I say this isn’t a bad price for it.
Today is the Star Wars reveals for San Diego Comic Con 2019 and LEGO has revealed the last exclusive that will be available for attendees with the Sith Trooper Bust (77901). The set has 484 pieces and will be available for purchase at the LEGO booth for $45 to whoever gets chosen for the lottery.
Update: I’ve been directed to the bottom right corner which states this set is an “Early Release Edition” so it’s possible that it could be released again later on. If so, my bet is at Target since they did the Darth Vader Bust and plus they like to sell products that have red color variants.
The Winnie the Pooh project by benlouisa is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The model features Winnie the Pooh’s home along with minifigures of Pooh, Piglet, and Rabbit along with brick-built models of Eeyore and Tigger and Owl sitting in the tree.
The project now joins UCS Space Shuttle Atlantis, Thunderbirds Are Go, Gravity Falls Mystery Shack, Pursuit of Flight, History Museum, The Office, Medieval Blacksmith, and Japanese Tea Garden as the projects to reach the Second 2019 Review Stage.
The new LEGO VIP Program is now live and there are some new things to look forward to including exclusive rewards and sweepstakes. First off, all the VIP points you had are now converted to points to use to redeem items in the rewards center. Some of these items include art prints and exclusive promotional items like the VIP set as well as the LEGO DC Super Heroes Bat-Pod which costs 15,000. As you can see from the image below, I redeemed it using my points but it seems to be glitchy as I should’ve received a promo code to use during checkout but I didn’t get it. I’ve already contacted customer service to see what they say about it.
There are now more ways to earn points besides just making purchases. Some of these things include social media activities like retweeting or sharing posts as well as just clicking on emails that come in from LEGO. Points from your purchases are converted as follows:
US $1 = 6.5 points
CAD $1 = 5 points
£1 = 8 points
€1 = 7.5 points
AU $1 = 4.5 points
NZ $1 = 4 points
10 zl = 1.5 points
1 DKK = 1 point
Points are earned on eligible purchases. Eligible purchases are defined as any service or merchandise available for purchase, excluding gift cards. Points will be earned on purchases made with gift cards at the time the gift card is redeemed. Please note, shipping and taxes are excluded from earning points.
Online—Having signed up, simply ensure you are shopping while signed into LEGO® ID. You will automatically earn points once payment is made.
Phone—When you make a purchase over the phone, keep your VIP Card at hand so you can quote your 9-digit card number to the advisor taking your order.
LEGO Stores—When you make a purchase at a LEGO Store, hand your VIP Card or show your Digital Card to the cashier. Your points will be added instantly to your card as part of your purchase transaction. Don’t worry if you don’t have you VIP Card with you, just let the LEGO Store Associate know your email address for them to locate your account.
Please note: You are earning partial points for your purchases, but these points do not show up in your online confirmation or account history. They will be added to your account and accrue in your points balance.
For example, if the LEGO item is $XX.XX, you are earning YY.YY points, but it will appear as if you have only earned ZZ.
There are other ways to earn points, including through social media activities and promotions (Social Media Qualified Activities). Just make sure you are logged in and your LEGO VIP Account is connected to your social accounts so you can get credit. Points-earning activities may include:
Retweeting or sharing our posts
Following us on Twitter or Facebook
Clicking on emails
A full list of non-purchase Social Media Qualified Activities—and the number of points you will earn for each—will be featured on the LEGO VIP Dashboard. There may be limitations placed on how often and / or how many total points you can earn by completing any Qualified Activity, and any such limitations will be stated on the LEGO VIP Dashboard.
While we’re happy to have you share our content, we also know no one enjoys spam. Make sure you’re not violating any of the terms and conditions of any social media platform. In the event the LEGO VIP Team determines, in its sole discretion, that you are abusing these Social Media Qualified Activities, your account may be terminated and any points earned will be forfeited.
