Daily Mirror promotion underway...Posted by Huw, 23 Oct 2010 08:43Microlight30012-1 City Airport 2010 ©2010 LEGO GroupIf you haven't already been down to the newsagents, or better still WHS, then don't delay. Today's free set is this cool microlight. Monday's snowman is indeed 30008, so the BrickList is now complete. 23 comments on this article By Doctor Leg O'Brick in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2010 08:52I can not get the microlight today. What a shame.... By Huw in Canada, 23 Oct 2010 09:35Had WHS run out? You need to get there early! By bluemoose in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2010 09:51My TRU still had hundreds left at 1pm. By Hob in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2010 10:31My local WHS which is tiny had two huge boxes of microlites this morning and that was @8:40am By Duq in Ireland, 23 Oct 2010 10:34Daily Mirror in Ireland has the promotion as well. Strangely though this time collection is from Tesco, not Smyths. By Markey in Belgium, 23 Oct 2010 11:13My local WHS had run out around 15.00 today. By finger2314 in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2010 13:06Missed the microlight :( but in my opinion that was the worst one. Is anyone buying the Daily Mirror for the promo actually going to read it? I'm planning on using it when changing out my hamster's cage:). No good for anything else! By Doctor Leg O'Brick in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2010 13:36@Huw, in the end i got it!! One left! How close was that? By voyanui8768 in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2010 14:27I got mine early this morning and its not that bad. It has some useful pieces like the t-shirt and the wings. Its so simple to make a much better model by just taking the wheels off and swapping the wings round and having them pointed like an arrowhead - its a one-man hovercraft! By Doctor Leg O'Brick in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2010 14:41@voyanui8768, thats very clever! By legomatt in United Kingdom, 23 Oct 2010 22:02Got one... although unlike some other lucky (or sneaky?) fellows on here, my newsagent was a bit more diligent and stamped the token (so no extra models for me). lol. By legomatt in United Kingdom, 24 Oct 2010 10:44Well, sunday's promotion for the police boat was a bust... tried both WHS in my area, both closed! So i couldn't even get the paper for the token. I don't think they've ever been closed before... did anyone else have this problem? Shame, i was hoping to grab the boat-cop. By Markey in Belgium, 24 Oct 2010 11:00@Legomatt - Yes, my local WHS was closed as well, I had to drive 12 miles to Oxford :(But at least, they didn't cross out my vouchers, so I managed to get two for each news paper. By NeilMartin in United Kingdom, 24 Oct 2010 15:43@legomatt - The voucher from Sunday's Mirror newspaper says that if your local WHSmith is closed on Sunday then you can claim the Sunday Lego set on Monday (providing that you still have the voucher from Sunday of course). By legomatt in United Kingdom, 25 Oct 2010 02:38@NM: Thanks for the advice guys, unfortunately with my newsagents being closed, i didn't get the paper, so I didn't get the voucher - i never thought about them accepting the voucher on another day. Oh well, never mind, we win some, we lose some. At least I know better for next Sunday... :o) By mokey2345 in United Kingdom, 25 Oct 2010 04:01if anyone whants the mirror stuff they have loads of them on ebay...i just got the boat on their cus my whs was closed!!! By mission_zed in United Kingdom, 25 Oct 2010 08:00I just checked the Daily Mirror website, and it states all the sets are exclusives and cannot be found in the shops. Yet I bought the Atlantis Diver in Tesco's a few weeks back. Did anyone else buy one from Tesco's ? By NeilMartin in United Kingdom, 25 Oct 2010 10:26@mission_zed - Yes, I purchased the Atlantis Diver (three of them actually) in Tesco just the week before we found out about the Mirror newspaper promotion. I'm tempted to get my Mirror newspaper sets and then take the original ones back for a refund and save myself GBP5.00. By Markey in Belgium, 26 Oct 2010 10:53Went to WHS in Oxford today and they sold out of newspapers, but had lego left. So I asked if I could buy a few sets, and got two for free. By legomatt in United Kingdom, 26 Oct 2010 11:32Well done for you Markey, that's great. Also, I had a bit of good news too. I was able to pick up the Police Boat after all, along with the Snowman for Monday's paper. The store staff gave me both! :o) By Matthew in United Kingdom, 26 Oct 2010 17:37@All - If anyone in other countries wants any of these sets then PLEASE contact me via my profile and I will TRY to get them for you. I am going to use the mail away and possibly my local WHS to get these then based on how many people want what I will work up a price list. Again please do contact me and I will try and get them for you. By robodee in United Kingdom, 27 Oct 2010 02:32Totally rubbish. The only store near me (in Scotland) is a Somerfield. They have got 15 kits per day and are all well gone in the first half hour. By Renegade007cjh in United Kingdom, 31 Oct 2010 09:04Have been fairly successful most of the way through the week, but was very disappointed that today they only had a miserly 28(!) sets and I turned up as person #29! Wouldn't mind, but the store had only been open for 15 mins! Commenting has ended on this article.
