Shell promotion reaches Australia

Posted by ,

To coincide with the Australian GP this weekend, the 'buy a LEGO polybag at Shell garages' promotion kicks off in Australia on Monday. From the press release: "From Monday 18 March, customers will be able to purchase exclusive Ferrari model LEGO cars at Shell Coles Express sites across Australia. A new model will be available each week for six weeks."

And, from a email that's been sent to members of the 'Shell V-Power club', more clarification: "Our unique range, exclusive to Shell Coles Express, will be available from Monday, March 18 for just $6 when you spend $40 or more on Shell V-Power* at your local Shell Coles Express. Or $8 sold separately."

The six sets are 30190-30195. There's no mention whether the seventh, the pit crew, 30196, will be part of the promotion or not.

I wonder then whether the promotion will follow the GPs around the world? If so, it'll hit Europe in May, June and July.

Thanks to Michelle and Scott for the news.

Taken from the Shell website: " Not available where you are yet? Don’t worry, the collection is being launched all over the world and could be coming to you soon. To be the first to find out, follow us on Facebook."

So looks like it will be travelling around the world with the GPs!

Re AllanSmith - They will not be coming to New Zealand as 'Shell' here has been sold and rebranded as 'Z'
Apparently not, I spoke to someone at Z head office who said no so if you have a contact in Aus now is the time ;)

Why, oh why does this never come to Indonesia? Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau already have them, and finished the promotion, leaving Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand being the last Southeast Asian countries not to get them. I doubt they will have them, but no matter. My collection is already complete anyways!

30190, '91 and '94 were available today, in Canberra. The packaging (which appears to be the same for the rest of the world) only shows the six cars; no mechanic.
