Received an invitation from LEGO to an exclusive holiday shopping event at the local LEGO store. The event is by invitation only and RSVP is required. Invited LEGO VIP member can attend along with a guest on November 23rd, 2013 for an hour before the store opens.
The fine print reads:
“One transaction per person will be permitted, with a spending limit of $5000.00 before discounts are applied. This event is open to individual shoppers only who are purchasing products for personal use. Attendees may not purchase more than five (5) of any single LEGO set or product and Holiday exclusives are limited to one per person. Additional restrictions may apply and vary by store, see a Store Associate for details…”
Stopped by a local TRU and as expected the prices on the LEGO sets were still high even after BOGO 40% off 😦
However, noticed a few #9468 Vampyre Castles and decided to pick one up after the store agreed to match the LEGO.com price. The set has been getting a lot of interest and is regularly out of stock on LEGO.com. I thought I should at least have one in my collection. Too bad I couldn’t get them to discount it further with BOGO 40%.
Along with the purchase I received a 5-pk TRU exclusive minifigures, the first out of three. It contains a robber, a police man, a girl in orange dress, a nurse, and a joker. The pieces are pretty ordinary but can’t complaint as a freebie.
Will attempt to stop by another local TRU to hunt for bargains.
LEGO announced today that it will be releasing an exclusive set, the Triple E (#10241), in its Maersk lineup.
LEGO designer, Jamie Berard shared some details about this upcoming new set that’s scheduled to be released next year, January 2014, with a U.S. price tag of $149.99
It looks nice with 1518 bricks. I’ll most likely pick up a couple to add to my collection.
This story is re-shared from The Brick Fan:
LEGO Maersk Line Triple E (10241) Officially Announced.
This minifigure came in the mail with an order today. The minifigure mimics a LEGO employee in a black attire. A red 2×4 brick also comes in the bag. This much talked about LEGO minifigure is given as a “thank you” gift in conjunction with celebration of the newly launch LEGO mobile site.
There were earlier speculations that this exclusive minifigure may only be given out to LEGO employees to thank them for their contribution to make LEGO the 2nd largest toymaker in the world.
I am thrilled that LEGO is giving this to their loyal patrons.
