Being a LEGO VIP is awesome. We’ve given readers that song and dance before, but it’s one that we’ll keep repeating. After all, why not become a LEGO VIP? Early access to new sets, gifts-with-purchases, VIP points and Sweepstakes for cool stuff is nothing to sneeze at. And every now and then, LEGO doubles the points for selected LEGO sets for limited periods. That’s great if you’re planning on buying a set that was awarded double-points. This month, two videogame-related LEGO sets are carrying this bonus for you LEGO VIPs.
LEGO Shop@Home is shining the spotlight on two sets from LEGO Minecraft, released in May. Take a gander at The Sky Tower (21173) and The Modern Treehouse (21174). Both LEGO Minecraft sets are worth double the VIP points for all of September.
“Minecraft” aficionados who love LEGO will appreciate the uncommon brick items and minifigure variants both sides offer. Who can say no to brick-built Flying Phantoms (Sky Tower) or a Charged Creeper (Modern Treehouse)?
On Shop@Home US the LEGO Minecraft Sky Tower (21173) is normally estimated at 390 points. Modern Treehouse (21174) meanwhile has about 780. At double points for September, LEGO VIPs can earn 780 for buying 21173 online, or 1,560 points for 21174. This only lasts until September 30 so don’t delay. If you happen to join the VIP program now then you’ll also receive a free minifigure keychain. This gift’s available until the end of the year, or while supplies last.
