10242 MINI Cooper Now Available


If you’re a LEGO Shop@Home VIP Member and you are already logged into their site, you can now order, or pre-order as it is as I write this, their latest D2C set, 10242 MINI Cooper. The cost is $99.99 and with that you will get free shipping and a free Flashback Shredder minifigure. The Flashback Shredder promotion ends on July 20th. But wait, there’s more! Order now and you’ll also receive a free MINI MINI Cooper set, #40109. Promotions abound!

The only unfortunate thing is, if you’re like me and forgot it went on sale two hours ago, you may be stuck waiting until August 1st for the set to ship. If you live close to a Brand Retail location, you should be able to pick one up in store as well. Just flash them your VIP card to check out.

FREE LEGO TMNT Flashback Shredder Minifigure With Purchase

Flashback Shredder

From now until July 20th or while supplies last, get a free Flashback Shredder figure with your LEGO purchase of $75 or more. Also, $75 just happens to be the magical threshold for free shipping so you’ll get that too. Offer is good online at LEGO Shop@Home and LEGO Brand Retail locations.

Two additional notes of interest should you decide to make a purchase. First, it’s not advertised on their website, but the store calendar is advertising an extra 50 VIP points with the purchase 79121 Turtle Sub Undersea Chase. The bonus VIP points is already reflected on the item’s page. Second, the promotion dates are from now until July 20th, which happens to overlap with the VIP Early Access to the next exclusive set which should be 10242 MINI Cooper. Assuming supplies last until then, you can get the figure free with the MINI Cooper set. The overlap dates are July 18-20.

LEGO Announces 10242 MINI Cooper


Announced today, LEGO is pulling back the curtain on their latest D2C model, 10242 MINI Cooper. Costing just $99.99 (USD), this 1,077 piece will be available starting August 2014. Look for possible VIP early bird access around mid July.

In addition to the usual assets, LEGO has partnered up with social media platform Tongal – which facilitates video content by crowdsourcing creative work through collaborative contests – and three very talented directors to create a series of tongue-in-cheek, spoof videos based on today’s car commercials.

Those three videos as well as the LEGO Designer video are available to view on our YouTube channel and are embedded at the bottom of this post.
