I realise it’s hardly the main attraction, but I think I’d be pretty underwhelmed if I’d bought the UCS falcon. They could at least have made the minifigure’s head and hands the same colour.

So basically since it's available only for online shopping, to receive this free gift I have to spend at least around €20 including shipping costs? Nice move TLG

Code received and order completed! I chose the cheapest SW thing available, a key ring (Yoda), so the price including shipping was 10,94 Euros (and I had 10 Euros left on my VIP account so only had to pay 0,94 Euros). But I still realize that this cool black card holder and minifig will have cost me about 200 Euros, considering that I paid 800 Euros for the FM 75192 when it came out, while now you can find it discounted around 600 Euros... But what can I say, once a lego geek, always a lego geek! I hope that the minifig will grow in value with time :-)

I think a special set related to the Falcon rather to the Black VIP card would have been nice. One very unlikely idea would be an add on set to change the outside of the Falcon to match Lando's white Falcon from the Solo movie. While this is totally unrealistic, I think something like this would have satisfied all fans, as an add on set only makes sense for those who already own a Falcon. Now thinking of this: the change for the radar dish would have been perfect! Owners of the Millennium Falcon would have gone crazy while the rest could have relaxed, knowing they have not missed anything. Well, in 9 years from now, when it is time for a new UCS Millennium Falcon...

For those whom have successful ordered, did you see the vip card holder in your cart after applying the code?

By in United Kingdom,

It works with any purchase. I preordered the overwatch sets

@rambutan: Yes I did... eventually. Had to refresh the page after entering the code, because although the code was accepted, the Cardholder didn't immediately show up in the list of my ordered items (which did automatically include the Christmas carousel).

I'm so glad that I wasn't foolish enough to buy a 75192 to get this lousy worthless card. I'd be returning my set buy now if that was me. LEGO have deliberately mislead customers to part with £649.99 (UK) for something which is now discounted elsewhere. I bet a lot of you would return your sets now if you could, right? I bet a lot won't fall for this cunning trick again. Well done LEGO, you've just reduced your customer base!

Argh! Still doesn’t show up in the US site despite refreshing. Let me know if anyone managed through the US site. Thanks.

Didn’t show in my cart but code was accepted. Hope it worked

So this is the start of our year of benefits, right?

By in United Kingdom,

Well it being a GWP is even more annoying, as I've just bought the last of the existing Star Wars sets that I wanted to get the Kessel Mine Worker minifig, however I've just read the small print and the offer runs till end of Jan (stock levels permitting) so I'll simmer down :)

@TabbyBoy: I absolutely understand where yoo are coming from. I did buy the 75192 through [email protected] in 2017. Likewise, I’ve bought plenty of other sets through [email protected], which eventually turned out to be (much cheaper) elsewhere at a slightly later date. Then again, I’ve also bought plenty of Lego at steep discounts on Amazon and other places: savings which (for me) offset the relative loss I’ve made through buying with [email protected] For example, some years ago I used to buy every new Star Wars set through [email protected]; no way I’d do that nowadays.

If you only spent £650 on the Falcon because of the unknown exclusive black card benefits then you are a fool and your money is better off with Lego.

@rambutan: When I made my order there was just the VIP car holder code (5005747) listed in the cart, and when I received the confirmation by email there was the whole description with the picture included. So everything seems fine for now.

@BigGreyBear: I would not wait if I were you, it is not sure at all that they will have enough stocks till January...

The serial killer minifig is back.

Seriously, it looks like he's dressed in head-to-toe black while he's out doing his job, and his hands are coated in yellow-minifig-blood.

Am I the only one who can see that?

Anyone in America receive the email yet? I never seem to get notifications about anything related to the black vip card

Gravatar
By in United States,

I’m in the states and got that email overnight.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Anyone not have the holder appear in their order?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Tried to use my promo code on my order (totaling $45ish dollars). It says that the code is applied but didn't show up in my bag. After 40 minutes in chat (35 waiting) they can't figure out why it didn't work and will get with the vip team to get it straightened out. Should know by the end of the day. Not surprised, lol! Seems to be par for the course with this whole promotion. The set is top notch, the vip deal is a fiasco. They really need to fix the bugs in their website. Fingers crossed!

By in Canada,

Thanks for the info 16bitbricks

By in United States,

No prob @CloudRoxas! Hopefully, they fix it and there aren’t too many people that have issues!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Same issue for me. Put the code in, set doesn't show in cart but indicates that "Promo Code applied". Lego will sort this out in the morning...but somewhat funny that yet again there's an issue related to the UCS MF online purchasing process!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Same with me. Code applied and placed an order but no indication of it in my confirmation email. Will speak with them on my long drive in to work.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ordered mine today without a problem.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@CloudRoxas & @eliminator; this happened to me too but a quick call to customer service resolved the issue, you just need to provide the promo good emailed to you

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Said it hasn’t gone live reason for error

Gravatar
By in United States,

Called customer service. They said to try again in an hour, they're fixing it now.

Gravatar
By in United States,

So it's not even free?!
HAHAHAHA!
Wow LEGO... wow... Somehow you still surprise me on how you screw over fans, cult members, and costumers after all these years.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wow! nice

By in Belgium,

Of course I bought something to get this final insult, I mean, this final promo: an unwanted keyring which costs me less than the postage fee… TLG, why are you doing this? This should have been sent automatically for free to all Black Card owners with a letter of apology!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Do you think these will be available all day?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Successfully ordered in the US. The email with the code came in around 4 hours ago. The email subject was mentioning the double VIP promotion so it won’t be a separate email.

Although the code showed applied in my order, no picture of the VIP set showed up. But because it said code applied, I ordered anyway. Figured I deal with it another time if it didn’t work. Checked my order online (not the receipt in my email) and it was shown there.

Probably no need to waste your time calling customer service.

By in United Kingdom,

Now, is that a printed plate at the back, or is that supposed to be our card? If it's the latter, this is worse than I thought

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ordered this morning but forgot to put a Star Wars purchase in the cart. Said code was applied but nothing showed in the cart. I tried to put another order with a SW purchase but then it said the code was invalid. Talked to [email protected] customer service and they said they would take care of it, but they were having some issues with the US stock for this item in their system since it just went live....let's see if it arrives.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I did not buy the Falcon for this card, I got the Falcon because I wanted the set, the card was just a nice extra.....
However, that being said this last promo being a GWP (gift with purchase) is a complete insult!!, this really should of been sent out free to all who have the card.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@colay I’m guessing it is your card that is placed in the brick frame.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I won’t complain about the black card. I wanted the Falcon regardless, and having this cool card to flaunt at the Lego store is a bonus. Doesn’t bother me that this set is a GWP. I’m fortunate to have to opportunity to obtain it. I don’t know why most people are acting so entitled...

Just ordered a Boba Fett key chain and was able to get this. 11$ ish.

By in United States,

I think the word "VIP" is getting to people's heads and egos. LEGO doesn't owe you MF owners anything for FREE. Yes, they've royally flubbed the promo but when did LEGO ever say promos for the card were free?

If you've spent an arm and a leg for what looks like an excellent set then enjoy it! If you only bought the MF for the exclusive card just think of it as an $800 card with a free UCS MF. Please don't put on your tin foil hat thinking LEGO built the $800 price tag solely around the VIP card.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I actually wouldn't return my Falcon. Other places have only reduced it's price by £100 and considering you get double points and free gifts in store, it roughly balances out the price difference. Not to mention the black card looks better than the standard one :p

Gravatar
By in United States,

I had to do the chat thing with Lego customer service because I never got the email with the code. They were very helpful, could see the card was on my VIP account and issued me a code. Even warned me that after entering the code that it may not show in my cart, but that as long as I entered it that the set would come. Didn’t show up in my cart as warned, but did show up on my final receipt after the order was placed. Thanks for the great customer service Lego:)

Reading everyone's school yard reaction to this has been gold.

This is true entertainment! Never grow up, people.

By in United States,

I have the original UCS Falcon and am, therefore, superior to all of you. Although, I can't find the instruction manual...doh! How is it possible to lose such a massive booklet? Man I suck.

Gravatar
By in United States,

People calm down. You're making a way bigger deal of this then it needs to be.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I couldn't care less about the promo, but I have to admit, that figure just looks weird. It kind of looks like a kid slapped it together from loose parts they had. I mean, why not give him black hands? It just doesn't seem to make sense to me and almost looks like a placeholder for something else.

By in Australia,

Honestly Im just gonna order a keychain or something and eat the shipping costs for this one. Ive spent way too much money on Lego this month already and nearly everywhere else in the country has Lego 20% off right now, double VIP points just isn't worth anything right now.

In some ways I do kind of appreciate that nothing too exclusive was locked behind that disaster of a launch where most people who were ready to buy the Falcon couldn't. But I think if I knew how worthless this card would end up being (there arent any stores in Australia that do VIP points, so its literally just a trinket here) I probably wouldn't have bought the Falcon straight away, since its since been discounted as low as $990

@Zordboy:
I believe you are mistaken. Those are just regular proctological exam gloves.

@lippidp:
I own a both a 1st Edition original and the new version. There's always someone out there who can do you one better, and I'm sure there are many out there who can outdo me.

@Purple Dave ... I've had three colonoscopies in the last 12 months. That just makes it even scarier.

Received mine today, ordered yesterday without issues. Word of warning for those of you expecting a shiny cardboard box: it comes in a plastic bag :)

Just received my card holder, and it includes a new black VIP card which I did not expect (but without any name printed on it)
