Tower of Orthanc

We're hearing from grogall that 10237 Tower of Orthanc will be available from 17th June exclusively to VIP customers from shop.LEGO.com and in the brand stores. This is a couple of weeks before its general release in July.

You have a rather misleading headline Huw... just to let you know.

^I know, I read it and automatically panicked, despite being a VIP! But awesome news that we can get it in less than a month! :D

You know what would still be better? Double VIP points with it.
That is when I will be buying it.
I don't really care about having it earlier than others.
Already thrilled.

YES! Great chance to get it early!

Hopefully there's a sweet freebie that goes along with it. An exclusive Minifig might be nice to soften the blow of Iron Patriot being unavailable to the general public.

@Jiraiya - I too can wait for double points. ^^

hopefully free shipping, too

I agree. I'll be waiting for (a) free shipping, (b) double points, or (c) free minifigure promotion before buying.

I am too excited for this set not to be buying it immediately. It will make for an excellent 'end of exam' treat I think!

What is the point of that? I'd rather see some freebie along with it. I'll wait for a promotion.

@capnrex101,

How on earth do you afford all this lego as a student? I was skint back in the day!

Like others, I would rather wait for some kind of promotion to get this. Getting it early doesn't do anything for me, it's getting it cheaper that counts!

If you purchase £50/$75 or more in the Lego store or online between June 1st-25th you will get a FREE Jor-El minifigure from the up-coming Man of Steel movie!

WHat's the point? Its not like getting a VIP Card is hard is it? I want it but I'll be waiting for a deal

Mighty mighty tempting,free delivery and free Jor-el minifigure,seems like an alright deal to me,tho I've heared that TRU in USA are getting LOTR sets in now. So wonder if UK will get them in around time Orthanc tower is on Lego to coincide? So much money will be spent this summer :o

@jockosjungle That's the point. It get's people to sign up if they're not already. Marketing.

"I'll be waiting for a deal"

I've been waiting for one on the ridiculously overpriced Haunted House, but no luck so far, so patience is required. Alot of patience. That said, good things come to those who wait eg. Grand Emporium recently on Amazon for £93 iso £133 list price.

Missing Brick: I bought Haunted House when I had a 10% coupon overlapping with double VIP points. I don't think I've seen better than that anywhere yet. I hope to do the same for the Tower of Orthanc.

I started off the year thinking "eh, this will be a small year in terms of cash spending with LEGO directly and maybe I can focus on buying some sets I dont have on bricklink". But with the Tower coming out and a couple other sets, like the cargo airport, I undoubtedly will have to change this thinking. Again, so much money but SO WORTH IT.

Other news related to this is that Amazon now has the new LOTR sets available for pre-order they will ship out on June 1st.

@missing brick. Haunted house is £119 in legoland windsor. Great price in my opinion for a great set!

my poor, poor wallet ... :D
It just does not get the chance to recover these last years thanks to TLG ... :P

It's OK, my VIP status just makes it all "worth" it. HAHAHA

Somewhat unrelated, but I was just at my local Toys R Us in Madison, WI ... and they had 4 of the new LOTR sets already! Ship, Black Gate, Council, and Gandalf/Saruman ... prices were of course terrible but still cool to see them in person!

By in United States,
