Today is the last day to place an order to secure an exclusive Hulk minifig from shop.LEGO.com with an order of anything of US/CA $50 or £50 or more.
Click on the banner above to do so and to find out more.
Sad, I could not get this. I just can't get over how wrong the deal was. LEGO doesn't consider 49.99$=50$? C'mon.
^ Just get a PAB from the site for a couple of cents. Pushes the total over $50.
There was nothing I really wanted this month following my purchase early on to get the TC-14 Minifigure, but I have one heading my way via Bricklink.
Tried to get it in-store but they were out of stock. Bummer!
Mine was delivered this morning :)
I just put an order in last night to get my second one...
Two already received and one waiting to be delivered. I wanted several sets and months ago I decided to wait to enter all of them for the "May the 4th" promo I missed last year. When I heard of the Hulk promo and the sets sale I added a few more. In the end, five orders entered in May to get three Tc14 (one was added to my second order as a bonus since the posters were not included) and three Hulks. And I have now plenty of sets to built! :)
): The LEGO Store was out of them when I went. I wish there was some sort of compensation. But whatever.
@legofanatic2414: I had the same with May the Fourth; the Y-wing at €54.99 did not qualify for the €55 free shipping.
@HuwThanks for the reminder!I just placed an order for another bunch of Superheroes sets, and some other sets which are on sale at Lego S@H here in Europe.I already have the (Big) Hulk from Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout (set: 6868), now I will also get the small minifig collectable version. Nice!
Wish they could wait til tmw with the Sopwith Camel coming out, but oh well... Rather have a Bruce Banner in all honesty.
I'd love to be able to place an order at LEGOShop.com, but I've been unable to for the last couple of days. I can't get past the final screen of the checkout. I click on the 'Place Order' button and it throws me back to the same page. I've tried three different PCs, several different browsers and two different debit cards. But nothing works. Has anyone else encountered any similar problems?
I ordered at mignight on day 1. I bought another Quinjet, but I just returned it to the store XD
^I thought you have to return any free gifts or vouchers when you return a set.
I got mine on the 25th at the Downtown Disney lego store, but when I got there they said they ran out but I asked a different employee and she checked and found 4 more they misplaced. so I got the Y-wing Gandalf arrives and some series 7. Now Lego give us a promotion where we can get the shirtless Darth Maul.
^^I got my original Quinjet from Walmart, so that return worked.
I was hoping the Sopwith Camel would be released a day early and I'd be able to sqeeze in on this promotion... thanks for nothing Lego!
@Sabreman64 - I had the same issue in early May. I recommend you contact LEGO Customer Service as the more people complain, the better likelihood the issue will get fixed.
"Click on the banner above" - pun intended :)
@Sabreman64 & @yellowcastle - I had i too. I called CS, but they can't help me. At the end I reentered the adress - and finally my order have passed. Really anoying.
@Sabreman64 - are all of those PCs and browsers still on the same network? If so, you may have a firewall blocking you. Just a thought.
bezetkace, thank you for your post. I took your advice and tried reentering my address (both my delivery and billing address) during checkout, and I was finally able to checkout. So I should get a free Hulk minifig - just in time too. (The LEGO Shop should mention somewhere on the site that if people are having trouble checking out then they should try reentering their address. It would save a lot of unnecessary frustration.)
Glad I got mine while the gettin' was good!
I like this one more than the big Hulk. :)The purple pants also look good on green.
Got the new plane with it =] glad they put up the plane in the last few minutes before the end of the month =] Finally got something worth to buy!
So I just placed an order, and at the top of the order it said congratulation you qualify for an exclusive hulk minifigure, but in my order summary it doesn't show up, I know usually they will list the figure and have a price of 0 next to it. Does this mean they ran out or for some reason it wasn't added, or is this typical? I'll probably call tomorrow to check...
@Sabreman64 & @yellowcastle & @bezetkace I had the same issue as well and I was unable to place 4 of the last 5 orders in Lego Shop (and I had to call to enter them). Unfortunately the workaround mentioned (reentering the address) was something I tried but with no results. As yellowcastle already told you, we need to have Lego CS understand the issue is now quite common. I never had any issue ordering from the Lego site until the beginning of May so I assume something was changed... Anyway, last time I called, the Lego CS Rep gifted me 100 VIP points due to the issues I had.
Shoot! Didn't get this one. Oh well. This is a little off-topic, but is that Green Lantern fig that came out at Comic-Con ever going to appear in any sets?
I ordered The Batcave from the company's website last thursday and qualified for the free Hulk. The box came to my house two days ago. It was an unnecessarily over-sized box for the set I ordered and when I opened it, there was barely any packing material. The Batcave box was slightly damaged but not to the point that I wanted to exchange the box at a Lego Store and the kicker was that there was no Hulk Mini-fig included. It showed up on the invoice. I called customer service and they promised to ship me a mini-fig which I got confirmation for but am still waiting. So my question is: when you spend $70 on something to be shipped in the mail, shouldn't it come wrapped properly and shouldn't it have the promotional offer? Not good, Lego.
