How does a limited release work in a global setting?
I'm sure one or two of the regulars will have seen this sort of situation before...
I'm very keen to get my hands on the #41999
Technic Crawler variant that's being released at 00.01 on August 1st (at least I assume it's 00.01). It's a limited edition of 20,000 sets, and judging by the hype around the Lego community, it isn't going to be hanging around for too long.
My question is : is it made available on the Lego website at the same time everywhere? If it's a 'midnight' release, then potentially, other territories will have had access to it for hours before the clock rolls around and the UK gets a look in.
Or do they ringfence a quantity for each timezone?
