[USA] LEGO VIP Members – Double Points October 1-31 – Updated

Update: The LEGOLand offer is no longer being offered. Here’s the official word from Shop@Home regarding the matter:

Due to unprecedented response to this promotion, the allocated number of free and discounted tickets to LEGOLAND® Parks has been fulfilled. If you signed up and registered as a LEGO® VIP member prior to September 23, 2011, you will still be able to redeem your voucher during the week of October 24-30, 2011, provided there is capacity at your chosen park, and you comply with all the terms and conditions for the promotion as posted at http://vip.lego.com/promotions. Thank you for your excitement for the LEGO® brand and the LEGOLAND® Parks, and your overwhelming response to this promotion.

Checked my mailbox today and found a small catalog, confirming the rumors from the last few weeks.

Yes, October is Double Points month for all of you VIP Members! This is good for orders from Shop At Home, in a LEGO Store, or over the phone.

Some of the point deals you might want to take advantage of:

3677 Red Cargo Train $159.99 / 319 Points
4194 Whitecap Bay $79.99 / 159 Points
10218 Pet Shop $149.99 / 299 Points
10222 Winter Village Post Office $69.99 / 139 Points *
10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van $119.99 / 239 Points *
10188 Death Star $399.99 / 799 Points
And yes, for all of you who have been sitting on your hands for a month, avoiding pushing the “buy” button:
10221 Super Star Destroyer $399.99 / 799 Points

*Available October 1st

Clear some space on those credit cards, as this is probably the first of a good sale season! (I hope)

In other news:

In celebration of the Grand Opening of LEGOLAND Florida, VIP Members can get in to any LEGOLAND park (as long as “any” means California or Florida) FREE from October 24-30. You can also get $10 off admission for up to 6 friends and family members visiting the park on the same day.

Shop@Home Now Offering FREE Star Wars Magnet Sets

LEGO S@H is trying to sweeten the deal for September by offering some free swag with some of their higher end Star Wars Sets.

With 50 bonus VIP points and FREE shipping on any or all of these sets (big spender), maybe it’s enough to push you over the edge. Or were you planning on waiting with your fingers crossed hoping for double VIP points in October, but possibly missing out on the FREE shipping? Tick Tock.

Collectible Minifigures Series 5 up at Shop@Home UK

Via Matthew on Brickset:

CMF Series 5

Man, they’re up so the fifth wave of these already? LEGO Shop@Home has listed Series 5 of the Collectible Minifigures for GBP 1.99 each. Supposedly the release date was set at September 1st, but reports have started popping up here and there. Now LEGO has listed them.

Until we see otherwise, September 1st is still the release date for the rest of the world.

LEGO VIP Promotions for August, Sales & Deals Updated

Imperial Shuttle

LEGO Shop @ Home has some new deals for the month of August.

>>100 VIP Bonus Points when you buy a 10212 Imperial Shuttle

>>75 VIP Bonus Points when you buy a 4645 City Harbor

>>50 VIP Bonus Points when you buy a:

    -7930 Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship
    -7641 City Corner
    -7597 Western Train Chase

In addition, they’ve added a bunch of stuff to the Sales & Deals section, but don’t get too excited. Most of it is hovering around 10-30%, and the items that have been in there for a while are still about the same price. Notable exceptions are the Toy Story and Female Minifigure magnet sets for $3.48 each. I am pretty sure are from the last wave of magnets before they started getting glued. About $1 a figure is nothing to sneeze at.

Free jetpack

And finally, spend $35 US/ £25 UK or more and get a free Alien Conquest Jetpack polybag.

Hoth Echo Base Now Available

LEGO Shop@Home now has the Toys’R’Us exclusive 7879 Hoth Echo Base on their site available for ordering. It’ll cost you $89.99, five bucks cheaper than TRU, and you get VIP points. It’ll still cost you shipping since their free shipping promo ended a little bit ago, but you can still get the free Kingoms polybag set to help ease the sting.

Thanks to Jon for the heads up.

Shop@Home “Clearance” Sale

LEGO Brand Retail

Shop@Home put a bunch of things on discount on their Sales and Deals page. Considering most of these are end of life, I’d guess they just want to try and get rid of them in order to make room for the summer sets. Either that or they’re just sitting around, collecting dust, and not making any money for LEGO. In any case, if you’re looking to stock up, these savings might be worth it to you. Some discounts are better than others. A few notable licensed set items:

Toy Story:

Prince of Persia:

There are also a couple of keychains on sale if those types of things catches your fancy.

Thanks to that guy from our forums.

10231 Shuttle Expedition, New and Improved

10213 MAIN

Did you miss out on acquiring a 10213 Shuttle Adventure set before it sold out? Well, fret none as it’s replacement, 10231 Shuttle Expedition, improves upon the original in many ways:

Since its release in 2010, 10213 Shuttle Adventure has proven to be very popular! Although the model was designed for a 16+ target audience, our consumer call center has brought to our intention that many younger children have been building and playing with the model. As a result, the Direct team has decided to look at the model once more to see what changes could be made in order to provide a better build and play experience for a slightly younger target audience.

10231 Shuttle Expedition may look similar to Shuttle Adventure in many ways, however its build is very different and offers several advantages.

– The fuel tank has been reinforced with supports to strengthen the assembly
– The landing gear is strengthened to function better across many different floor types
– The Cargo doors can now be more rigorously opened and closed
– The entire build has been reworked to limit opportunities for misplacing elements
– Astronauts now have wigs in addition to their helmets (1 male, 1 female). Face prints are also different.
– The new set now has 1,230 elements
– New Satellite can be securely positioned on the new mechanical arm

10231 Shuttle Expedition has already gone on sale in LEGOLAND Billund and will soon be available across all LEGO brand retail stores and on LEGO.com.

Kind regards

LEGO Direct Team

It’s not on Shop@Home‘s site yet, but should be available soon.

Pirates of the Caribbean Now Available At LEGO Shop@Home

LEGO Brand Retail

Got an itch for some POTC? Got VIP points burning a hole in your virtual wallet? LEGO Shop@Home has almost the entire LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean line on sale on their site. I say almost because 4184 Black Pearl is still a no show. But, the good news is that unlike TRU online, they are selling Queen Anne’s Revenge for $119.99. Beware, but they are selling 4191 The Captain’s Cabin as 4191 Zombie Pirates. So pick your poison: Toys’R’Us, which we are not an affiliate of anymore since they kicked us (and other AFOL sites) out of their program, or LEGO Shop@Home. And if my subtle hint wasn’t enough to convince you, then you could at least be earning VIP points with S@H. Quick links below:

Stormtrooper Clock Now At Amazon, LEGO Shop@Home

Stormtrooper Clock

Out of all the LEGO Star Wars clocks, the Stormtrooper clock was the most popular according to my informal data gathering technology. And as far as I understand it, it was also shortpacked in the case, 1x Stormtrooper with 5x Darth Vader. Still haven’t found one? Well, look no further as both Amazon.com and LEGO Shop@Home has this listed in stock for $24.99 and $29.99, respectively. You get free shipping from Amazon if you add something cheap to your cart to bring your total over $25. But you get VIP points through Shop@Home. Decisions, decisions….
