Other than the sweet Double VIP points offered by LEGO at the start of this month, a host of new sets are now also made available both in-store and at shop.LEGO.com. One of these sets also shows LEGO’s first steps in removing regional restrictions, particularly with its LEGO Dragon Boat Race (80103) set. If you recall, this set first appeared as a regional exclusive last May 1, offered in several countries in the Asia Pacific region. After the announcement of giving global access to this once regional exclusive set, LEGO was true to its word of offering to the rest of the global LEGO fandom after three months from its initial release in the area.
This time around, LEGO Shop@Home now lists this set in its database, offering it to LEGO fans all over the world. Just click on the link below and read on for the complete product description for the LEGO Dragon Boat Race (80103). This set is expected to sell for $49.99 in the US, coming in at almost 700 pieces.
