Congratulations to each of you! Expect a PM later this week to get those prizes on their way. And to everyone who built and voted, thanks again. These contests would be nothing without everyone joining in.

It’s that time folks, we’re coming up on the last stretch in our latest contest. The deadline is midnight Monday so you still the weekend plus one more day to get those models finished and submitted. Full rules available here and don’t forget that all entries need to be posted to the the contest thread before it closes.
Two weeks in and two weeks to go, plenty of time for you to join in on our latest contest! The challenge is simple: start with the mini Volkswagen Camper Van and put a Star Wars twist on. Anything from the movies or Clone Wars cartoon is fair game and there are loads of directions to take this. You can read the full rules here for all the specifics. And be sure to stop by the contest thread and check out the entries so far, we’ve gotten loads of great submissions already and I’m looking forward to more.
If you haven’t ordered from Shop@Home to get yourself a Mini Camper Van set, or the regular Camper Van set, or don’t have enough money to do either, then now is your chance to win one! LEGO Shop@Home is sponsoring this contest offering prizes of 5 copies of 40079 Mini Volkswagen T1 Camper Van and 1 grand prize of 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van! All you have to do is Star Warsify the Mini Camper Van.
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!
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).

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.
I got word yesterday that the incredible microbus set 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van will go on sale today through LEGO Shop@Home for the North American market. In addition to the set seeing an early release up from October 1, Shop@Home is also offering free shipping once again now through the end of the month for US and Canada. Free shipping applies to orders of $75 or more, which shouldn’t be a problem if you’re just getting this set: 10220 is priced at $119.99.
For you European fans, you’ll have to wait four more days before you can order it. It’s scheduled to go on sale on September 27th.
