It can be said that a country has become a viable customer market for LEGO is when they have their own regional version of shop.LEGO.com on the official website. That ensures the delivery of your product of choice, plus adds the comfort of a webpage translated in your native language.
Before this week, shop.LEGO.com had dedicated pages for 24 countries, some even with their own translations (for example, shop.LEGO.com Luxembourg had English, French and Dutch versions). Recently however, LEGO has announced the opening of online shopping for five new European countries: two in the Baltic, two more in the Mediterranean, and one in Central Europe.
As of today, there are official shop.LEGO.com pages for Slovakia, Greece, Slovenia, Latvia and Estonia. These being in the preliminary stages, only English versions are available. But to celebrate the fact that the pages for five countries are up and running, LEGO is holding a contest for their new customers.
With the sites online, LEGO fans from those regions that make a purchase on their shop.LEGO.com, or at least send an email to WinaFlag@LEGO.com, from August 23 to September 30, will earn a chance to win a special-edition buildable flag of the new countries in the LEGO family. They’re rare alright, not even for sale.
Slovakians, Estonians, Slovenians, Latvians and Greeks who mean to join this promo via email, need only to include their name, postal address, phone number to contact, and email address. The LEGO buildable flags measure 72cm x 48cm, and are textured.
