There many good reasons for dedicated LEGO fans who shop for their sets straight from LEGO to get into their VIP loyalty program. From getting points towards rewards, exclusive early access to sought-after upcoming sets, and more besides, what’s not to like? LEGO VIP opens up a lot of possibilities. Another perk of the VIP program was the privilege to join in on annual Monthly Mini Build events that are held at certain days of each month in all LEGO Stores. As detailed in the October Store Calendar, the mini build for next month is the LEGO Scarecrow Witch (40285) set .
For two days, October 2 and 3, LEGO Stores will host the Mini Build Event for those interested in getting their own Scarecrow Witch (40285). But first, they must be members of LEGO VIP, and then they need to sign up for a slot during the event. Each day’s hosting only has 120 maximum participants, making 240 in two days.
A LEGO VIP household can register up to four children at once for the Mini Build, and each will receive a set. But as the participatory requirement states, for a child to bring his Scarecrow Witch (40285) home, he must build the set during the event by his own hand.
Registration for LEGO VIPs who want in on the October LEGO Store Mini Build event started last September 15, so it’ll be a race against time for one of those 120 slots in a day. Some LEGO Stores will have their event happen on October 9 and 10 instead, so would-be participants can check availability on the registration form itself.
