Several LEGO Store promotional exclusives have proven to be attractive collectibles in themselves. Other than the fact that they usually come as free items, these LEGO Store exclusives often times represent the unique milieu or cultural heritage of the place where they are offered, making it more appealing to collect.
So it will not come as a surprise (though a very welcomed one, nonetheless) if the LEGO Store in Shanghai, China has something in store for their VIP members. The promotional item, tagged as 40178, is said to be available to VIP members in China some point later this year, as Brickset reports. This set is currently being given away with purchases of over 399 CNY in China, the equivalent of £45.75, $58.75 or €51.30.
Images of this VIP set were also uploaded in Chinese social media site, WeChat, as you can see below. It seems to be a pretty nice build, especially with regards to the creative rendition of the Pick A-Brick Wall, LEGO box sets (though it uses stickers), and the collectible LEGO Store employee minifigure.
We have no word yet if these will also be offered internationally, so for the time being will keep our eyes open for more updates.
