Last week we got the first word that Sainsbury’s in the UK was about to reintroduce their Create the World Series of LEGO Collectible Trading Cards. It was something of a hit for the UK supermarket chain when they did it last year, and in 2018 it’s time for their LEGO shoppers to collect cards again under a new theme. This new series of LEGO trading cards from Sainsbury’s is called Create the World: Incredible Inventions. The promotion started this week, with Sainsbury’s store and markets now carrying the trading card packs and the special album books in which to put together the LEGO cards.
Steps to collect the Incredible Inventions series of Sainsbury’s LEGO cards remain the same as before. Sainsbury’s shoppers will receive a free pack of 4 collectible cards at the counter for a minimum shopping receipt of £10. The card albums – blue this year – are priced at £2.50 apiece and come with two free card packs.
Time will tell if this new Create the World: Incredible Inventions trading card series from LEGO will be as popular as last year, when the card albums after the promo period were being sold online at expensive LEGO-set prices. Sainsbury’s has yet to announce if the trading cards can only be acquired in the promo process, or sold conventionally as well.
