Chowren Toys offer rare Castle polybag in bulk

Posted by ,
Vladek

As promised here is Chowren Toys' first promo of the year -- something small to ease us into the new year! I'll let Jason explain...

"We are offering 5998 Vladek Castle Kingdoms polybag from 2005, featuring a minifig and weapons, for only $1.80, which is about 64% off our regular price. We believe this polybag was not widely available in the USA at the time of its release and is hard to find nowadays.

"Want to build an army cheaply? We are allowing you to buy up to 100! We don't have unlimited quantities, however, so as usual it's first come, first served. Remember, the more you buy the cheaper per item shipping charges, and order soon to avoid the USPS price hikes on 26th January. Please use promo code: BS5998POLY at checkout to receive the discount price."

Place your order today!

With nearly 600 available on BrickLink right now I'm not sure this is "rare." But it is a very good deal.

Was interested in picking up a handful of these but postage shows at $18 to ship to the UK, which makes it cost- prohibitive for me... shame...

Let me first apologize to our international buyers, there was an issue with our international calculator and we have since fixed it. If you check back now the international shipping rate should not be so outrageous. We will be checking to make sure that there are no shipping overcharges with all of our orders so there are any we will be refunding you the difference. Our sincere apologies to our international customers for any inconvenience this has caused. Thank you for your understanding. Sincerely, Jack.

Please note the promotional code will only work once. If you tried to purchase another order you will get the error code. This is to prevent people for making multiple purchases so that more people can get in on the deal. You can order up to 100 at a time so decide ahead of time how many you would like before making your final purchase. Thank you, Jack.

@cjg,
Hello neighbor! As a registered WA state business we will have to charge state sales tax to all of our WA state neighbors.

@Hemel and everyone who received the error message
Let me apologize for not realize you have to register before you can use the promo code. I am the person who sent the information to Huw. Jack told me about this design issue in our eCommerce software and I forgot to include that info in the promo. We are a small company with so much to do, like trying to find great deal for Brickset readers and provide the best customer service possible, we sometimes forget important info. I am writing all these issues down so it won't happen on the next promo.

Tried to purchase without becoming a registered user of the site... got the error message. Tried again after registering, entered the promo code, and now 10 of these babies are on the way! Great deal!

I'm getting the error "Promotion Code (not valid or has expired)." Any help please?

Only seemed to happen when creating an account upon checkout, rather than make an account ahead of time.

Took the plunge and ordered, with postage at the new international shipping rate... just had an e-mail offering a partial refund for over-charging, bringing it down to a far more respectable amount. Many thanks to Jack at Chowren Toys...

Once your order is process and shipped we will email you a tracking number. Please let us know if you have any question regarding your order.

Am I the only person who had one of these? I got it a long time ago, one for Brickmaster, and a local Wal-Mart had a ton of them for a few years after 2005. Wish I had known how rare they were...

I bought 30, and Jack was nice enough to actually CALL me internationally to tell me that they overcharged $3 on shipping, so they threw in 2 more!

Great guys, I will definitely keep them on my radar going forward!
