Toy Story polybags free with Daily Mirror next weekend

Posted by ,
Buzz's Mini Ship

Brickset member "Timberlake29" brings news that 30072 Woody's Camp Fire and 30073 Buzz's mini-ship will be free with next Saturday's and Sunday's Daily Mirror. He said the ad in yesterday's paper didn't mention whether it would be by token or by collect in-store. If it's like the last one, though, it'll be collect in-store from Tesco and TRU.

Typical: I'm going to be out of the country next weekend so won't be able to collect for myself! If anyone is able to pick some up for me, do please get in touch!

Update from Eurobricks: This is part of a larger promotion of TS3 toys which will be available with The Mirror.

Excellent, I was wondering how I was going to get hold of these, now I know. The Daily Mirror Lego offers have been fantastic over the past few years, it's the only time I buy the paper!

Nice one! Was never able to get to WHSmith or TRU for the Star Wars promo, so had to do the mail-away instead. Will NOT be making the same mistake this time around!

Now I just need to know how to get hold of 30071!!

cool promotion, but i'm not too keen on toy story

The Mirror ad doesn't mention TRU, WHSmiths etc., so maybe there's a chance that the sets will be packaged with the paper (hooray !), although I'm not holding my breath.

Hi Huw - I've got the same problem, for me in the Netherlands those quints of actions don't work.
Therefore, is it an idea on your site, to make a "let's help" page for only members.
So I can ask to people in the VS to buy me something and send it over (I'll pay) and for others I can buy stuff (they pay) and send it over, without extra charges! Just an idea.

@Peter1975 Brilliant Idea, it should incorporate collectable mini figure swapping also.

@Peter1975 and LegoCoastGuard - That's a good idea but it's not all that safe. If members got to use that they would have to be at a certain age or have a parent go though. Bricklink already has that though (except for it's like eBay).

I would help you out Huw, but I'm too young and I live in the USA. :(

@peter1975 that idea is amazing although jarod98 i also agree its not that safe ?

Too bad they don't do newspaper giveaways in the U.S. For some reason there's never any promotional (free with newspaper, magazine, etc.) sets that are used in these things, we end up having to buy them directly (if the set is released at LEGO dealers), buy overpriced ones on eBay, or not get the set at all.

I was thinking of buying a few TS sets to get Woody and Buzz figs, but now I can just get them with the promotion. Yay!

Would love to get Woody's Camp Fire somehow.

I'd be happy to post out any extras I can get of this promo to people on here, providing they cover the cost of the newpapers and P&P. I live close to all potential outlets (TRU, WH Smith or Tesco).

I'm more of a Star Wars collector, but collect anything Lego especially if it costs next to nothing like these great promo's - don't like the paper but do like their Lego!!!

Huw - Have you considered reserving the newspaper?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I see the Daily Mirror are learning, having the best "free" stuff over the weekend, when the newspaper is more expensive. Very cunning. I for one, won't be buying ten copies of the Sunday Mirror just to get multiple Buzz's.

By in United Kingdom,

huw i might be able to get the toy story stuff 4 u ?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I may be able to get you one (or more) providing that it is packaged in the paper or is WH Smith or Tesco. (And all costs are covered)

Gravatar
By in United States,

NOOOOOOOO! Not another Mirror promo!! Is this like the 4th one?!?!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Its a wicked offer, cheapest lego mini figure yet. I must say that these figures are a must in my collection as the heads are a perfect reflection of the toy story characters. Not the normal yellow or black heads. These are going to be a winner and well worth collecting.

I really wanted to get woody and buzz so I got them free in the magnet with the fruit packets at tesco. I might still get these though for pieces like woody's longer legs and the hot dog!

Thanks for the news on this promo, email sent to my cousin over in the UK. I can see this years parcel being sent over at christmas will be pretty full after all the promo's this year in the UK. :-).

Others;
Why shouldn't my idea be safe. I can imagine as a member you need to fill in a registration form wich is connected with something like paypall or so.
You also can rate another when you had a good deal. The idea is, as Orange Lemons says, to be able finding Lego specials, without paying them overpriced on sites as eBay.

Another way is just look in the member list and see who is whilling to ship things to you.
I am not espacially a lover of Toy Story, more a Castle and Pirates guy.
But for a while ago, there was this auction with two polybags of Lego 30061 and 30062.
Is there anyone out there who wants to sent me these sets, without over price them?

Got the latest information on this offer:

"Get two free Toy Story LEGO toys with The Daily Mirror (65p) on Sat 17 and The Sunday Mirror (£1 ) Sun 18 July.

On Sat you’ll find a voucher for a LEGO Woody toy and on Sun a voucher for a Buzz Lightyear LEGO toy, both worth £5ish. The vouchers are redeemable at WHSmith, The Disney Store or Toys R Us."

This went out as part of the MoneySavingExpert.com weekly email which goes to millions of people, not sure whether this will mean more of a rush than usual to get hold of these or not, but I'll be going early to be on the safe side.

What do you have to do to get them? buy 10 Mirrors, cut out tokens and then send them off?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Drath, you need to redeem the token in one of the shops I mentioned in my previous comment on the day. Not sure if there is a mail option on this offer or not.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ah yes, Sorry :)
I might get the woodey one in that case...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Gravatar

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The token says "only one per customer" - my WHSmith would only give me one :-(

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

By in United Kingdom,

Went to one WH Smith, was told they had all gone by 10.00am and they only had about 50 they claim.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Managed to get hold of both of these sets easily from WH Smiths, just made sure I was there at opening time. If you're reading this Huw, got some for you too as promised!

By in United Kingdom,

Thank you to the staff at WHSmiths at London Bridge station. They could not be bothered to wait for me to tear out the coupons and just gave me the Buzz sets ... so I tore out the coupons and took them to the WHSmiths at Waterloo station ! So four Buzz's for £2 ! The guy at Waterloo station did give me the "one per reader" line but one of the other staff said: Just give the man what he wants.
