2018 LEGO Inside Tour registration begins today

Posted by ,

Registration for next year's Inside Tours started an hour ago and ends on Friday at 10am CET.

I don't believe it's a 'first come first served' arrangement any more but I'd advise getting your application in as soon as you can.

Five tours are being run, one in May, two in June and two in September. Full details are at LEGO.com and here's a link to the registration form.

If you don't know what an Inside Tour is, read a review of a 2015 one.

Whenever I have that much money to spare, I spend it on Lego sets. Seems way better value for money to me.

I would love to sign up but £1700 - Wow!

I had no idea what the Inside Tour was, just read quickly through the review of the 2015 Inside Tour, looks really cool and like a lot fun. Although 14,500 DKK (almost 2000 EUR) is too expensive for me. Maybe in the future.

^^ Worth every penny, as anyone who's been will attest.

@AustinPowers, I guess it depends on whether you place materialistic benefits of spending above experience. I believe, as you get older, experiences become more attractive than acquiring more stuff. That's certainly the case for me.

True that Huw - Definitely worth it.

I've added this to my mentally stored bucket list.

Wonder how overbooked it will be - x2, x5, x10?

I assume people will be selected based on nationality, age, gender...

Does anyone know whether they factor your purchase history? Always wanted to go but the dates are always awkward for me.

I signed up. My birthday is in May so I signed up for the end of month trip. Bucket list item, so we will see if I get a spot.

^ Good luck, it would definitely make a great birthday present!

^^ I somewhat doubt it, but even if they did factor your previous purchase history no one's going to confirm that something like that would actually happen. I don't buy very much through [email protected] unless there's something exclusive because Argos/Amazon etc. are easier but I got in.

Something somewhat more likely to be factored in on your application would be whether you're a member of a LUG - Brickset counts as one! I remember there being some kind of 'personal statement' part of the application form too - I'd say it would help to write an eye catching comment on why you want to be a part of the tour in this area.

Money-wise, it's definitely worth every penny (if you can afford it). You could compare the costs every which way but it comes down to how you place the monetary value of the experience. I personally saved over time, as if preparing for a longer haul holiday. I think someone of my age (mid-20s) without kids going on the tour is a rarity judging by my tour roster, but when everyone's a kid at heart there it doesn't really matter!

Indeed, i suspect they'll cherry pick from the applicants based on some criteria like:

Family or single
Race diversity
If you've been to the tour before
Country diversity etc.

For me, a family of 4 would mean the tour cost x4, plus x4 return tickets from asia which amounts to US$15K or more?

For me next year could be a possibility, we'll see...
