LEGO Black VIP Card Shipping Clarification

LEGO Black VIP Card

If you’ve purchased the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) before December 31, 2017, you will be eventually getting the black VIP card if you’ve haven’t already. I’ve gotten an update for a reader who emailed in about their experience with LEGO Customer Service about his situation.

It appears there was a glitch in their system with VIPs who have opted out or never consented to physical mailings and their cards weren’t created with the original batch that went out last year. LEGO has since created a new list for those particular VIPs and their cards will be sent out soon.

Also, the rep also stated that any upcoming special promotions that goes with the black VIP card are attached to the VIP account and you don’t actually need to have the physical card on hand. This info is very helpful because I’ve had a lot of questions come in about it.

Hopefully this answers the main questions that have been asked by those who have purchased the UCS Falcon and haven’t gotten their cards yet. Again this only applies to those who got it before last year’s deadline and people who ordered the Falcon after the new year restock will not be getting the card. Thanks to David for emailing in about it.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Available Again in US/Canada

I posted this on social media but I feel I should make a real post for it for more reach. The LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) is now available again for purchase in the US as well as in Canada on Shop@Home. I’m not sure much inventory LEGO has at this point but I’ve already had a few readers pick it up. Too bad there’s no more of the black VIP cards to go with it.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Listed on Toys R Us

The LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) won’t be a LEGO exclusive anymore because it is now listed on the Toys R Us website. It isn’t currently available at this time but you can sign up for email notifications to let you know when they will have some in their warehouse. The RWeb# is 810544.

Shop@Home has had limited availability since it was first launched and you can no longer get the Black VIP Card that went with it. I’m going to take a stab in the dark and say that LEGO didn’t have enough to make the rumored 30,000 cards that were planned for this promotion.

If you’re still looking for the UCS Falcon, it may be worth signing up for the TRU email notifications. I’ve had luck with the system on other products so it does work.

Two Weeks Left to Get LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon for Black VIP Card

There are about two weeks left in the year and for those who are still trying to get the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), here are some tips for you to potentially get one to get the exclusive Black VIP Card before the end of 2017.

Shop@Home is pretty much out of the question as there has been very low quantities on-hand online for a short period of time. Your best chance to get one is if you live close to a LEGO Brand Store. Either call or visit them and check if their waiting list for the Falcon is close to being done. I’ve have a few reports from readers that say their stores (Palisades Mall for one) have completed their lists and the Falcons are now on a first-come, first-served basis. If they do have some in stock, ask if they can put it on hold and you can hop over there to pick it up. If not, check when their next shipments are and it’s possible there may be some on the trucks. Also you can ask to be put on the waiting list if the stores are still doing them for the next ones that come in.

It’s unfortunate that the Black LEGO VIP Card is only available with a purchase of the UCS Millennium Falcon because there was so much demand and very little quantities for fans, there’s no way that it will pass the reported 30,000 number of cards that are available. Hopefully LEGO will extend the promotion … Continue

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

In an unexpected surprise, the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) is now available again on Shop@Home in Europe and Australia for VIPs. As of this writing, it is still available for purchase but you have to be signed in to your account. This is probably the last chance to get it this year and also score the exclusive black VIP card. There’s still no word on when the US will have it available again.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Availability Update

If you are a LEGO VIP member, you may have received an email from LEGO regarding the availability for the new LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). They have extended the VIP only access period through November which means that you must be a VIP member to be able to purchase the set. This also means that the general public won’t be able to purchase it on October 1 since they announced earlier that it will still be temporarily out of stock then. If you’re not a LEGO VIP member, I’m not sure why not, you can easily sign up online.

LEGO has also suggested that you call or visit your nearest LEGO Brand Store starting tomorrow to get put on the wait list for when shipment arrives at the store. Of course, there’s no way of knowing how many sets they will get per shipment so try to get on that list early for a higher chance to secure one.

As you may know, the new LEGO® Star Wars™ Millennium Falcon (75192), our largest LEGO set ever, went on sale exclusively to VIP Members on September 14. We are very excited that we received such a positive response from fans like yourself, it exceeded all of our expectations! Unfortunately, that also means the first batch has already sold out.

The good news is we are making more as quickly as possible and expect to have very limited quantities available for the remainder of 2017. We have extended the VIP-only access period, which means

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Release Debacle

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

The day is almost over and the main event today was the release of the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). It was available on Shop@Home shortly after 5am PST which was around the time that LEGO stated it would be released. After it was actually available, Shop@Home basically couldn’t handle the load and it kept going down. Other issues with it include logging people out, servers going into maintenance, multiple orders placed, etc. After that, the set went into backordered status, and eventually temporarily out of stock. If LEGO didn’t announce an actual time for the release and just put it live at an arbitrary time, I felt that it would have eased the overload on the servers.

For those who were waiting for the general release on October 1 or Double VIP Points from October 10-25, you might be out of luck as well. Over on LEGO’s customer service page, there’s a a topic for the Millennium Falcon and there’s an interesting blurb which says,

75192 Millennium Falcon™ goes on sale from October 1st 2017, however due to the overwhelming success of our VIP Early Access, it will remain temporarily sold out.

This means that LEGO will not have stock for the general release which is actually surprising since there was plenty of hype for it way before today and they obviously knew that there was a huge demand for it but probably underestimated how much demand it really had.

LEGO also stated that they’re continuing to make more but does … Continue
