The Sun promotion has started...
I'm sure I don't need to remind UK readers that the free LEGO with The Sun promotion has started today, but just in case you've been living in a cave for the last few months... get down to WHS right away! :-)
Today's offering is 30163 Thor and the Cosmic Cube. Given that this set has not been seen in the UK before, and previously Thor was available only in expensive sets, it's a great little polybag to start off the promotion with.
The rock piece is frangible so that you can mimic Thor breaking it by moving the black Technic beam lever on the side. It's pretty unremarkable otherwise, but with Thor in it, it's worth 50p of anyone's money.
My branch of WHS was surprisingly civilised this morning at 9:15; my wife and I walked straight to the till, and there wasn't a walking-stick wielding granny or scalper in sight. I suspect tomorrow will be worse given the store doesn't open until 10:00 am and everyone's had time to get up and go into town by then. In case you need reminding, here's the list of sets we can look forward to this week.
