@Huw - The link doesn't allow me to enter an email address!

Edit: - It isn't working with Internet Explorer, but it does with Edge....

I would have like to have a chance to win this one for sure! But as a non UK resident, I just can wish you all good luck! Nice reward indeed for the happy winner.

@Huw; @Lobot; Same here. The page says "GIVEAWAY", but there's no email form to complete.

Edit: Chrome mobile doesn't work, but requesting the desktop version of the site does.
Seems a little sloppy to be honest...

Sad at it is for only UK residents because I'm a resident of USA.

Oops didn't notice it was UK only. Hopefully I don't win because then I'll be bummed I can't claim it!

The email entry box is just below the picture of the set.

Why are these only ever in the UK?

Crap! Sorry! I didn’t notice this was UK only so don’t select me!!!!

Dang it's only for england. I wanted it.... As I unfortunately don't have the cash to spare for it.

I guess it's because us Americans are spoiled with lower prices on LEGO, right? Or is it Trump? Whatever it is, it's not fair. : (

Only UK? :(

I mean, I can understand you don't want high shipping costs and other regulations and whatnot and thus avoid foreign countries like the USA. But broadening the scope to EU wide wouldn't be such a problem right? Shipping is not that expensive and very easy within the EU.

Ah well, it's not like I was gonna win anything anyway. I never ever win giveaways :P

The site doesn't show anything beyond the word 'giveaway'. Also, UK only is a bit of a cop out and should be stated in the article.

I've had it clarified that despite what the small print says the competition is open to everyone wherever you live.

I've also reported the problem that prevents people viewing on phones from entering their email address.

Excellent!
I love a competition!

^^ on a Mac desktop, the form doesn't work on Safari either, I had to use Chrome.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm told it's fixed now.

Can't say no to free giveaways!

Maybe I will finally win something, fingers crossed.

This breaks GDPR rules in the UK/EU. It is not legal to 'bundle' an opt-in to marketing email together with any other action. Acceptance of marketing email cannot be a condition of entering a competition.

In theory, every EU-based individual who has entered this competition thus far could bring a claim against IWOOT (and potentially Brickset given the page branding) because either/both are holding personal information that was illegally obtained.

It is all sorted and working now (thanks Huw). Nearly picked up the express today but am feeling lucky so waiting...

Using Safari on a Mac, still can't enter an email address.

By in United Kingdom,

Using Safari on a Mac, it won't let me enter an email address!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Safari on Mac - can't fill in the form and the form/contest itself is against the GDPR. I'm unsure how this contest was allowed to be run, as it opens them and Brickset up to some pretty serious lawsuits. :( I guess if the e.mail form doesn't work, then that's one way to prevent collecting addresses and violating the law!

You could have just linked to www.iwantoneofthose.com/offers/lego/giveaway.list directly, rather than via a spammy-looking redirection domain...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Aleydita: it actually states that you aren’t signing up for anything, and that your email will be deleted after the contest? If you signed up for their marketing, it appears to have been of your own free will.

@SpiderMana - it has been changed, obviously :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was just being sarcastic, but thanks for clarifying that it's open to all.

Email address entry box not accepting any input. Tried again this morning, no change.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ It's just worked for me on Chrome, however I had to click on the email entry box twice before it let me enter my address...

No problems for me on Mozilla on Android. Thanks for the comp, great I can enter something without Facebook profile!

By in United Kingdom,

As a Brit on holiday in the USA, I can't seem to enter either!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Still cannot fill the email box in. I click on it, but no flashing cursor appears to enable me to type anything. I'm using Safari on a Mac. Very poor job IWOOT!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I managed to enter but I don't have an account on there. Is that okay?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yea it doesn't work.

By in France,

This is one of the best sets of LEGO star wars.

By in United States,

When will we receive results?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Thanks, would really love this set.

Gravatar
By in France,

Sorry for my coment above was a mistake.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Tried again to enter using Safari just now and finally able to put input into the email box. Yay!

Thanks for fixing the fault. Competition entered.
