It looks like LEGO VIP members can expect another gift-with-purchase (GWP) polybag anytime soon. To add more brick-building fun to next year’s Chinese Lunar New Year festivities, LEGO will be offering the promotional LEGO Lunar New Year VIP Add-On Pack (40605).
There’s no official announcement from LEGO.com yet as of this posting, but this promotional polybag was eventually confirmed thru LEGO’s Customer Service if you search for the building instructions for set 40602. Additionally, we can catch a glimpse of this polybag freebie if you search within LEGO’s Certification Page and search for item number 6428025.
Though the image for the LEGO Lunar New Year VIP Add-On Pack shown on the certification document is less than ideal, we can somehow surmise what this polybag has to offer. It features a great selection of seasonal LEGO pieces offered in variant colors such as recolored lantern pieces, minifigures accessories, and even a rabbit figure keeping in line with 2023 as being the Year of the Water Rabbit.
We might hear from LEGO anytime soon regarding the mechanics of how to avail of this promotional offering, especially since January 1st is just around the corner and there are plenty of LEGO 2023 sets that we can look forward to. We can certainly expect LEGO to provide additional incentives to VIP members and add more value to our future purchases to kickstart 2023.
I’ll update this post once new information comes in so stay tuned. Special Thanks to Brick Fanatics for the heads-up.
