Short window for Double VIP, just 6 days.
Perhaps we'll get a Triple VIP towards the end of the month, as there was earlier in the year?

I hope Millennium Falcon will be available soon so I can take advantage of this!

Ninjago City it is! Shame the Falcon isn't available for the double VIP. I ended up selling mine as it had just joined the pile of sets waiting to be built. I can wait a couple of months for a new one, plus I get the excitement of getting hold of one all over again!

Do we normally get double VIP over black Friday weekend in the UK? Not a big fan of this freebie so maybe I should hold off a bit longer to get the nutcracker.

Is the VIP set and double points for in-store purchases too? Will be in Leicester Square this weekend - perfect timing for these offers, but obviously not if I have to purchase online instead.

^ Purchase online via the links then you help to support Brickset at no cost to yourself.

Thanks for the heads up, I was hoping the EU would mirror the NA offers as I've been looking forward to the VIP set and I can boost my points collection for Ninjago City. I usually go in store to buy but as the double points is so short I'm not going to get into central London in time so I've ordered via the affiliate links. Looking at my order I've noticed one item, a power functions 'M' motor, is backordered, does anyone know if they will hold my entire order up for it or ship out what they can in the mean time?

^ They usually ship out in multiple batches, then.

I guess the Snowspeeder doesn't qualify for the VIP set?

@sid3windr Thanks for the confirmation.

So... does this mean the UCS Millennium Falcon wont be back until after October 15?

I don't think those folks at LEGO want to give me 1698 VIP points just for buying one product.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Falcon doesn't show up till after black Friday...you know when all the promotions are done. This years offerings aren't too good; hopefully the black Friday sales make up for it (but I'm not holding my breath).

FYI, in the USA double points goes until the 25th.
On a side note I placed an order this morning and it halved my points instead of doubling so I'll be calling CS about that. Anyone else have that problem?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So will this promotion not be available in the Lego Stores, then?

By in Canada,

I just made an order in Canada and there was double points, 40178 Exclusive VIP Set, 5004936 D2C Excl. MF Cave Set , and 30609 LEGO® NINJAGO® Lloyd Minifig. The last two were unexpected but extra freebies are always great. The Friends promo was supposed to be the keepsake box but turned out to be the 40265 Friends Tic Tac Toe Game, which was a little disappointing.

Anyone know when the city 40177 will be available? Just bought my last city set for the vip promo, so i hoop it won't be only on city sets.

By in United States,

I placed an order early today around 2:00 am USA Eastern Time. Got the 3 freebies (Lloyd, cave minifigures, and the VIP set) plus the 2x points. Great deal if you ask me. What's not to like about the VIP set, it's great for a custom LEgo/toy store and the red minifigure is awesome.
In fact I went again (10:30 am USA ET) using the link here and placed another order for the Old Fishing Store, so twice the freebies on their way!

The Old Fishing Store is now on backorder too.

The Lego online store lists the Falcon as "VIP only" but I'm logged in and still it's out of stock as "VIP only." Is there a way we'll know when VIPs get access? Will it just be listed as in stock? Been waiting for double VIPs to order that bad boy!

By in United Kingdom,

Went to Metrocentre specifically for the VIP set and an additional Lloyd polybag. But they were out of Lloyd and hadn't received the VIP set yet :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

VIP set is available in Lego store. Got one today. Unfortunately, the other freebies (Lloyd and Cavemen) that people are mentioning for online orders were not included in store.

By in United Kingdom,

Has anyone else experienced the "lego.com is more like an actual shop" effect. It may be just me but if an online offer starts 10th Oct I assume it starts on 10th Oct.... not on the stroke of midnight but early on. I tried this morning at 6:30 and just before leaving for work at 07:30 no offers.... Its almost as if someone at lego.com has to get into work have a coffee and then press the let them have the offer button. Is is the same in other countries? Lego.com doesnt close at 6:00 at night why is it not open at 6am.....?

Yes, bought the Old Fishing Shop as well! :)

@CreativeTim Since double VIP points applies to all purchases, I don't think LEGO really cares if they "have" to give them out for one $800 set or four $200 sets. They've actually done double or bonus points on a lot of new releases recently, including Force Friday this year on all the new Last Jedi sets.

@ra226 Hahahaha. Are you serious? I know sarcasm doesn't really translate well on the Internet. Please tell me your post is a parody of all the people who were waiting until October 1 or October 10 to buy the Falcon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I haven't been following "all the people" so I'm unaware. You could instead say "no, it's out of stock despite saying available for VIP's only". You know, offer a helpful answer. People sometimes do that, even on the Internet.

I was half way to saving for Ninjago City, and seeing this awesome promo set, along w/Double VIP Points, was just enough to push be over the edge and beg to borrow the other half (thank God for Mom's!). But by the time I was able to beg for my check and deposit it into the bank, and then have the expected glitch on [email protected] site, then had to call Customer Service to place my order, Ninjago City was already Backordered until 10/23/17. Oh well, at least I know it will be on the way soon. And my free goodies, plus the cool Halloween scene set will soon be on the way!

Ps. @ra226 I think he thought you were being sarcastic because it was pretty hard to miss the debacle that was the rediculously fast sell out of the MF within a few hours of it's early release to VIP's. As it stands now there are none in stock to sell for the non VIP release, and rumor is there won't be anymore avail. for sale (outside of insane prices on eBay) until end of Nov. or even early 2018. Sorry to be the bearer of crap news :(

By in United States,

Placed my order on [email protected] got a slew of free swag! However, the Ninjago City already back ordered. So I called my local store and they got in stock, just hope there is some still there by the time I can make it in person. Also, talked to my store contact, and he stated he doesn't believe they will get any USC MF this month. @ra226 if you have a Lego store near you contact them, as they have created a sign up list to be notified if any of the MF come in stock. I am #16 on my store's list, fingers crossed it will hit at double points next month!

@billybob107 @r226 I went by my store yesterday and was told that the list has reached 5000 in the US and stores were being told to stop adding people. The store told me that online back orders were supppsed to be filled first, then waitlist, then restocked in stores and online. Not sure how accurate any of it is though.

This VIP free gift was supposed to be included in purchases over $125. I've kept checking back throughout the day and it still doesn't offer it. It just shows that you get free cavemen figs and the Lloyd polybag. Maybe tomorrow will be different, but so far no luck regardless if I try on the computer or on my phone.

Orangekoi,

Did you double check you hit $125 before sales taxes and any express shipping? I had to add some Pick a Brick to go over,

I also picked up the two new Xmas sets -Xmas train Ride and Xmas Square. I was already getting Xmas Village Station so my Village will be expanding.

PS orangekoi,

Are you logged into your VIP account?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I had the same experience as orangekoi last night until I actually went to checkout. The VIP set and the double points only show up then--unlike all the other freebies and special offers.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yes and yes, The Arkham Asylum set alone should have put me over. It's not showing up at all even when I go to checkout. Just the other free items.

EDIT: It finally came up when I tried the winter village sets. I thought it might only work with City and non-licensed themes, but it seems to be working now with all themes. It even worked when i tried Elves and LEGO Batman Movie sets.

I have $128.96 worth of items in my bag on the US site but this isn't being added. They added the caveman set and Lloyd instead. Is this sold out already? It is showing up on the main page as one of the changing main images (along with the 2X VIP points) but clicking on it just goes to a Star Wars VIP promotion page for the black card.

Glitch?

By in Germany,

@stet as stated before I only saw the VIP set once I went into the cart. I went form having the 9 items in my cart to having the 10.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thanks. I went back and placed my order :)

By in United States,

I was going to buy LEGO Boost for my son for Christmas anyway, so bought it a little bit early to get this really nice promo. It didn't show up in my cart until I had to verify my order before payment.

By in United States,

@Poorestyorick I stopped by my local store this evening to pickup Ninjago City and the store clerk and myself were talking about the USC MF and he too said the wait list had grown too much that it had been cut off. He stated that Lego didn't want to do more then they could produce before the end of the year. Now how much truth is in that I don't know. Pure speculation at this point.

By in United States,

Today in store I purchased a $125 gift card to use when the Falcon is back in stock, I also received the VIP set.

I got this VIP set and a Lloyd polybag when I bought the Old Fishing Store yesterday at the Westfield Stratford store.
