Coming Soon: LEGO VIP Add-On Packs

The LEGO Customer Service Portal has been updated to include several building instructions place holders that hint at the possibility of certain LEGO VIP Add-On packs to be released soon. To be precise, this listing does not include any building instructions, but images of what we can expect from these offerings.

Thanks to Brickset, we now have initial images of these LEGO VIP Add-On Packs and the elements and pieces that go along with them. Frankly, the concept is somewhat similar to the LEGO xtra theme, with the Add-On packs basically offering significantly more LEGO elements and pieces that revolve around a particular theme.

There’s no word as of now on how LEGO VIP members can avail of these add-ons. It might be a form of freebie that will be featured in next month’s LEGO Store Calendar, or perhaps as a reward via the LEGO VIP Rewards Center. We just have to wait and see. For now, it will be helpful if you can keep tabs on our blog site for future updates. Let’s take a look at what we can expect from these expansions packs.

Fun and Funky VIP Add On Pack (40512) – 148 pieces

LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006746) VIP Gift Now Available

LEGO VIP members are in for a treat starting this week. Because as mentioned in the June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar, from June 21 to 30, 2021, LEGO VIP members in the US can now get the LEGO Swing Ship Ride (50067546) as their next gift-with-purchase (GWP) set.

Every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO sets or products worth $85 during the promo period, will entitle you to this nice Children’s Day giveaway. The set clocks in at 152 pieces with a retail value of $13, and features a movable swing ship on what seems to be an 8×8 base. It also comes with a 2×4 tile with a message, Happy Children’s Day 2021. I’m not quite sure if the tile is printed, but it will be nice if LEGO can throw in an exclusively printed piece.

If you also noticed, the June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has initially shown that the tile piece mentions a LEG GODT 2021 message (which means Play Well in Danish). Frankly, I prefer this particular version since it captures the essence of what it means to play with LEGO bricks. In any case, I guess that there might be regional variations with regards to this LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006746) GWP considering that Children’s Day in the US is usually celebrated in June.

Whatever message it carries, the Swing Ship Ride is still a great freebie to have this month. Feel free to share in the comments below your first impression of this set, especially if you already received yours.

The June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar Features Ton of Freebies To Expect

The June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has now been uploaded via LEGO’s servers and it looks like there’s plenty to expect at your local LEGO store at LEGO Shop@Home starting next week. The month of June marks the availability of most of LEGO’s H2 (or 2nd half of the year) offerings, and LEGO is throwing in a handful of promotional items as an incentive to tick that that next LEGO wishlist. Let’s take a look.

Free LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490)

Offer valid from June 1 to June 30, 2021; in-store only. 

June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

It looks like Ninjago is now given the official BrickHeadz treatment, and the timing couldn’t be better. LEGO Ninjago now marks its 10th anniversary making it one of LEGO’s longest-running themes. And aside from the various exclusive LEGO Ninjago minifigures and sets that were announced to celebrate the occasion, LEGO is now throwing in its first BrickHeadz rendition of some of the most iconic characters of the theme. It is not exactly a freebie, but this 3-in-1 set comes in at a discounted price of $10 if you happen to have a single-receipt purchase of any LEGO Ninjago sets worth $85 and more from June 1 to June 30. Originally valued at $29.99, this BrickHeadz trio includes a rendering of Golden Lloyd, Nya Samurai X, and the Firstbourne Dragon. Please take note that this is an in-store offer, so better plan for your next LEGO Store visit.

 

Free LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Elva (30343) polybag

Offer valid from June 7 to June 20, 2021.

June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

To celebrate the release of its larger cousin, the LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Elva (76902), LEGO is also throwing in a polybag for every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO set worth $40 or more, both in-store and online. You may also want to check out the next wave of LEGO Speed Champions to see what they have to offer.

 

Free LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006748) for VIP Members

Offer valid for LEGO VIP members only from June 21 to 30, 2021.

June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

Here’s a treat for LEGO VIP members. Any single-receipt, LEGO purchases worth $85 from June 21 to 30, 2021 will entitle you to this free LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006748) set. We have little information about this freebie, especially about its piece count. But judging from its initial photos, we can see that the Swing Ship Ride comes on an 8×8 base that features a swing mechanism and a sticker that echoes LEGO’s founding principle of “LEG GODT” or “play well”. I’ll give you updates once more info comes in.

 

Free LEGO Blue VIP Keychain (854090)

Offer valid when you sign-up for the first time to become a LEGO VIP member. Promo runs from June 1 to December 31, 2021.

Throughout the second half of the year, LEGO is giving out the exclusive LEGO Blue VIP Keychain as an incentive for signing up as a LEGO VIP member. Its a great way to start your journey on great LEGO discounts, rewards, and other cool LEGO giveaways.

 

Free LEGO Bob Minion with Robot Arms (30387)

Offer valid from June 24 to July 11, 2021.

To mark the long-overdue release of Universal Pictures’ Minions: The Rise of Gru animated film, LEGO is also giving out incentives for those who will make their next LEGO Minions purchase. From June 24 to July 11, any single-receipt purchase of any LEGO Minions sets worth $40 will entitle you to this Bob Minion polybag. It’s a nice way to build your army of little yellow minions if you ask me.

 

I have to say that the offerings and promos listed in the June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar are pretty exciting. So be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home for the latest and upcoming LEGO sets next month.

LEGO NASA Ulysses Space Probe VIP Reward Now Sold Out

If you are following the saga of this latest LEGO VIP Rewards hype, then you’ve probably felt the frustration of many LEGO fans on this side of the planet earlier today. I understand LEGO’s intention of providing incentives to loyal LEGO fans through VIP rewards points, but this latest debacle of the LEGO NASA Ulysses Space Probe VIP Reward was met with a lot of site glitches and a good number of upset LEGO fans.

I have to admit that I was never really a fan of LEGO VIP rewards for the obvious reason that this customer rewards system is not available in my region. On top of that, I have a certain bias against the “exclusivity” of certain LEGO sets which should be otherwise be made available for all LEGO fans to enjoy. I would rather have the offer of GWPs or gift-with-purchase sets than having these exclusive VIP freebies.

If you recall, the intention was to release the LEGO NASA Ulysses Space Probe to attract and draw attention towards its latest LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283). Though the latter was smoothly released without any problems or shortage of sets since the start of this month, the launching of the LEGO NASA Ulysses Space Probe was met with plenty of site glitches and hair-pulling loading errors as shared by LEGO fans across the internet. And in a matter of 15-20 minutes, the entire thing is already sold out over at VIP Rewards Center.

The experience of getting this relatively unattractive LEGO freebie in my opinion truly frustrates and perplexes me. I would like to echo the frustration of most LEGO fans since as I’ve mentioned earlier, I’m not really a fan of these “VIP-only exclusives”. And second, having LEGO, a highly respected and established company with all the means and resources at its disposal to ensure a smooth digital transaction for LEGO fans, to fail big time in making this set accessible to LEGO VIP fans, truly leaves me scratching my head.

If LEGO opted for the GWP route on the LEGO NASA Ulysses Space Probe and has it as a tie-in specifically for the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283), then this LEGO VIP Reward tragedy could have been averted. I know I might sound harsh about this, but the truth of the matter is, such marketing promo just left a lot of legitimate LEGO fans disappointed with only those uncaring scalpers having a field day over at eBay. Just look at these outrageous prices for such a tiny LEGO set.

As far as I can remember, this issue of scalping for such rare LEGO sets has always been decried by the LEGO fan community and I do hope that LEGO will somehow be proactive in addressing this issue. And in my opinion, it can start by having these kinds of sets available for all LEGO fans to enjoy and perhaps re-evaluating the value and necessity of the LEGO VIP Rewards system from the perspective of the LEGO fan community.

For now, I’ll just be looking forward to that next LEGO project that I am itching to build. After all, that’s what got me into LEGO in the first place – the freedom to creatively build and to freely select the sets that interest me.

For LEGO VIPs: Here’s a Chance to Win an Exclusive LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure

In case you missed it, the LEGO VIP Rewards Center has been updated to include a new sweepstakes contest that gives all LEGO VIP members a chance to win an exclusive LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure.

Launched towards the end of 2019, the upscaled 5:1 wooden minifigure display piece is a nod to one of LEGO’s most recognizable pop-icon symbols that began in 1978. And this time around, LEGO VIP members now have a chance to bring home not just the generic kind of LEGO wooden maxifig, but a Colette-branded collectible exclusively designed by Sarah Andelman. For those who are not familiar with her works in the fashion industry, Sarah Andelman is the founder and creative director of Colette, a chic Parisian concept store known for its limited-edition range of collectibles and luxury brands, and its quirky mix of lifestyle products. Unfortunately, after 20 years in the business since 1997, Colette eventually closed its doors in 2017.

Each raffle entry to this exclusive LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure sweepstakes costs 50 VIP points. The raffle draw will run until January 10, 2021, across eligible countries. For more information, be sure to check out LEGO’s contest rules and terms of service. And if you wish to include this in your AFOL’s LEGO Christmas wishlist, be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home to know more about this collectible.

Seasonal VIP Treat LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) Officially Revealed

LEGO is now warming up for its annual Black Friday deals with the official reveal of the new seasonal LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) set. LEGO Shop@Home has been updated to now include its holiday-inspired LEGO VIP freebie that honors the legacy of the master storyteller in the person of Charles Dickens. Check out the images below.

LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410)

333 pieces | valued at $22.99 | to be given away for free to LEGO VIP members from November 21-22, 2020 with a qualifying purchase, and while supplies last. 

LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute

Coming in at 333 pieces, this set is scheduled to be offered to all  LEGO VIP members that will make their next LEGO purchase during the abovementioned weekend, both online and in LEGO brand stores. For a single receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $150 and above, you’ll have this freebie automatically added to your cart. Additionally, you’ll get double LEGO VIP points for your purchases during these dates as well.

As a fan of seasonal brick-built vignettes such as 2018’s LEGO Christmas Gift Box (40292), I love the concept of these seemingly 2-in-1 builds that also doubles as a popular holiday symbol. The build itself depicts the author’s famous novel A Christmas Carol and features three minifigures:  Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchet, and Ebenezer Scrooge.  As Brickset’s review has pointed out, it seems that LEGO has taken an extra mile in offering these minifigures in a promotional item. We have a new printed minifig face used for Mr. Scrooge, while the printed torso used for Bob is a relatively new one.  Being a freebie as it is, and though as much as I would prefer that printed parts were used for the book’s title and decorations, I guess I have no qualms over the set’s abundance of stickers.

Again if you want to bag this VIP promotional LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) considering that its availability is very much limited, be sure to schedule your next LEGO purchase from November 21-22. I’ll be updating this post once the LEGO Customer Service portal has uploaded the building instructions for this set.

Earn Extra LEGO VIP Points By Testing Your Wizarding Knowledge

In case you missed it, the LEGO VIP Rewards Center has a neat little incentive for LEGO Harry Potter fans. You can get extra LEGO VIP points by taking a short (but a bit challenging) quiz that tests how deep you are in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Here are the details as posted over at the Rewards Center.

How Much Do You Know About Harry?

Take our VIP Quiz now. Test your knowledge about the world of Harry Potter and you could earn 150 bonus VIP points (the same amount that you would win when you catch the Golden Snitch).

There’s a total of 9 questions to be answered and you need to get at least 6 of them correctly to earn those sweet, extra LEGO VIP points. I’m not really into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter being an average fan that I am, so I have to conjure some good ‘ol search magic to answer most of them. Additionally, all of these questions have something to do with the iconic Diagon Alley which is now rendered once again in LEGO bricks in the form of the recently released LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (75978).

The nice thing about this particular LEGO VIP quiz is that you get to know the correct answer and the results stay listed in your account as long as the promo is up. Just for fun, I’m sharing the answers here in alphabetical order so you just try to figure which answer goes to what question.

  • Five
  • Floo powder
  • Flourish and Blotts
  • Knockturn Alley
  • Owl
  • Quality Quidditch Supplies
  • The Daily Prophet
  • Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes
  • Wiseacre’s

The 150 extra LEGO VIP points may not sound that much, but still, its a great way to stack up on those points without making any LEGO purchase. There’s no particular mention of any deadline, but it will be wise to take this fun little quiz as soon as you can.

The LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (75978) is now available at LEGO Shop@Home. 

While you’re at it, be sure to check the details of the new LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley set and the rest of the latest LEGO Harry Potter sets available now over at LEGO Shop@Home.
