No purchase necessary.

That sign up form is a GDPR nightmare. Facebook profile required? Wants access to your friends list?

NOPE.

Not available outside the UK or ROI... I guess with only 10 given away at a time we'll have plenty other opportunities.

Facebook? No thanks.
In that case they can stick their T-Rex's up their...

Oh man. Like seemingly everyone else here, I deleted it years ago.

Boo to this offer!

*shakes head* at the people above who give up Personal info, all the sets/inventory they own and other identifiable details, to Huw and his affiliate driven brick-a-brac fan site :-)

@brickingit - yeah I had to chuckle myself! Free Lego you say? Here, take my e-mail address! Talk of 'selling your soul' is a touch dramatic isn't it?

Lets hope tons more people don't want to give their details (smyths already have mine anyway due to online purchases and reservations) and increase the odds for the ones who don't care!

what i dont get is the fact that this trex is the fourth (?) in a brown colorway.....soem other color would have been coo for something that “exclusive” like this it doesnt make any sense to me to participate, even though i “just” own the green and brown trex from 2012....

It's just, I've already got a Lego T-rex. Why do I need another one?

Make an updated Stegosaurus, Lego, and then we can talk.

Only United Kingdom and Ireland can take a part... :/

^ But you have to buy LEGO in person at one of their shops.

Just ten? Intertoys in NL and that other toy store chain in Belgium are giving out a hundred EACH.

You Brits should feel very short changed. Then again, we actually have to buy a set to enter....

You guys should edit the post to mention this promotion is only available in the UK and Ireland. I filled out the whole form and it was the second to last thing.

I don't mind it having access to my Facebook account. All I ever do there is post BIONICLE memes anyway.

Ha ha, my thoughts exactly.

Is it going to be available in the US ?

Surrre, I'll give Zucc all my personal info for a chance to win a little plastic dinosaur.

Sarcasm. No. This is dumb.

@101DALEK

still though, think of how much a 500 copy limited edition LEGO T.Rex would go for on bricklink, eBay, or Catawiki.... thankfully the other European toy stores don't use Facebook for this promotion (they do require you to buy a set before entering though), so I had no trouble entering. Our pool was a 100 copies rather than just 10, so much better odds as well.

First the playpen polybag and now this. Why is Europe getting all the cool dino stuff?

By in United States,

Why did Smyths make the contest on Facebook? Why not something like Twitter or Instagram, that people actually still use?

Oh well. I don't even live in the UK anyways.

By in United Kingdom,

After completing the form and pressing submit, no confirmation of the details just entered was acknowledged and the page just reloaded with the existing data I inputted...

By in France,

why am I not in the UK? sounds like no one there uses / likes facebook, which means higher chances to win.
though you are probably all right that the real goal is to collect as much personnal data as possible.

@Spidey-Boy224

Why not just enter through their own website instead of any social media site. Some of us don't use any of them.

I don't have Facebook, but I don't see what everyone has against it. I'm pretty sure you can easily make an account just for this. I don't know how Facebook works, though, and this is coming from a guy who has more Twitter accounts than he's willing to admit.

I just entered and also invited someone I know - seems like a good idea to double the odds if we team up! Zuckerberg already has some of my details but I don't let any apps plug into it in any way and I don't really use Facebook to make public posts any more - just PMs and checking pages generally. It would probably look like I've been off the grid in the last few years if it were based on public posts alone! Like Sean I unticked the more questionable checkboxes so I'm pretty satisfied.

Still, only 10 sets for the whole of the U.K. and EIRE? Seems a little unfair in comparison to 100 made available in countries with smaller populations. I would've been happy to make a purchase of a Jurassic World set to qualify too. But if there are only 500 in total are they mostly going to be floating around just a handful of countries?

Only the UK? Hmm. Shame.

It should be mentioned in the main text that Ireland is also eligible, it’s selectable in the drop-down menu with the U.K. ;)
