Curious to see if there will be another set to go with it - those connector pins look promising!

^And the Minifigure is looking over that way. Could there be a second set?

^^^Maybe it slots into or modularly replaces part of 70620 Ninjago City.

I didn't realize what it was at first, being so small. Seems alright.

^Or do the pins slot into the VIP sign?

If this is only available to new sign-ups, like the keychain, I will be less than pleased.

It does, however, look pretty cool.

I wish the VIP minifigure was red chrome. The set overall looks decent.

I'd like to get it. It looks nice.

Very cute! I have not opened my store opening set, so these would be a fine addition that I'd be less reluctant to open and build.

I like it! These minifigures will become highly sought after. I suddenly feel like I need the VIP guy.

Does anybody else think the "VIP" looks a little like "UP" with a figure in the middle? The P is perfect, but I feel like the V could use some work, although I can't think of a way to make it better myself at this scale.

I love the notion of VIP exclusive sets. The VIP benefits are great, but it would be nice to get exclusives now and then.

Of course, I also wish LEGO would offer subscription boxes, but that's neither here nor there.

I really like that. I will look forward to more info about how to snag one up.

Looks cute. I like it! Looks like it could be a couple of store dioramas to collect. Definitely want it!

I love these little vignettes. Much better than the current piggy bank offer.

Awesome, a completely red minifigure in a set.

Actually the keychain is a GWP in China instead of a present to a new VIP.
Lepin pushes LEGO to do something different in China.

The set is kinda meh to me, but I do like the idea of VIP exclusive promotions.

A cunning way to get folks to start collecting monochrome minifigures?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Oooh, is that a dragon on the right? I'm thinking this has some tie-in to Ninjago... love it!

@Laura_C - looks like Brickley to me

These are the sort of giveaway tjat make me buy something I don't really want, just to get it. I love it, and really hope it comes to the UK

Great. A monochrome minifig for free. Hope this becomes available in Europe as well.

Maybe connects nicely to the Creator Lego Store 10259 - if that is real upcoming set and not a Google search hoax/fake news:)

@Castle375: It's a MOC by CM4Sci.

Danke Brick Dangerous, I saw it few times on searches, I wasn't aware the Lego Mall a MOC, it's a very good one.

@RikTheVeggie Yeah, you're right :-) Would be cool if it was a GWP with Ninjago Movie purchases here in the UK though! Roll on August!
