LEGO Shop@Home is running two promotions for the month of September that are designed to drain your wallet dry.

Spend at least $50 on LEGO Star Wars product and receive the previously hard-to-get Clone Trooper Lieutenant minifigure. This offer is valid from September 1 all the way through October 31, assuming supplies last that long. Though if I were you, and you’ve been pining away for this minifig, I wouldn’t wait. You snooze, you lose

In addition to the Clone Trooper Lieutentant promo, LEGO has another promo to drain your wallet dry: spend $75 or more on any LEGO product and receive a free polybag of a MINI Volkswagen T1 Camper Van. Offer is valid from September 1-30 or while supplies last.

Both offers should trigger in one order if you spend $75 on LEGO Star Wars, or $50 on LEGO Star Wars and another $25 on any other product(s). If you do spend $75, you’ll also enjoy free shipping!

Amazon Discounts 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van

Amazon’s discounted the 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van down to the price it should have been sold at from the beginning, $99.99, down from $119.99.

These sales are killing me. I have a feeling there is more yet to come.

Review: 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van

Image

As soon as we got proper pictures of this set, I knew I wanted it … and as soon as it became available, I ordered it (in the process getting some money off and a free Atlantis set).

This review is brought to you with the assistance of “cool” surfers Brad and Deborah … with Sally the Lifeguard on hand to ensure safety ;)

10220 T1 Camper Van Time Lapse Build

Marshall Matlock wrote in to let us know of a nice little video he posted on his blog page. It shows a time lapse video of him building the 10220 Camper Van set. Over 1,800 photographs were taken and compressed down to 24 frames per second for a video that is a little over a minute and a half long. Kind of a nice way to see how the build goes if you haven’t built this set for yourself yet.
