The 'exclusive' stamp in the 2017 calendar has a calendar icon with '2017' below it, I can make an educated guess what the new exclusive stamp will look like...
Might be worthwhile giving a store a call?
I left the store in Wijnegem about an hour ago with a calendar, which I didn’t expect.
No sticker needed this time, just spend €20. I also got a nutcracker and 24-in-1 calendar
because I purchased for an amount of €65.
No 2018 sets available in-store yet? Probably not as there was nothing in yet when I passed by Monday last week but you never know...
1-5 Dec Free Iconic Christmas set with min 55€ purchase
6-11 Dec 20 % off on all Duplo, Juniors, City and Friends sets
12-14 Dec Surprise offer
15-17 Dec Double VIP
18-24 Dec Free Star Wars anniversary pod with min 55€ SW purchase
What I got on top of my purchases was in line with what @Humdrum got, with the "Iconic Christmas set" on top:
Bought: Garmadon's lair + Lloyd spinner + City accessory set
Got as extras: 2018 Calendar + Christmas buildup + Nutcracker + Iconic Chrismas set. Not much to say about that last one that hasn't been said already but it's impressing how much disappointment come out of such a small Lego box. Then again chuffed to bits with all the other extras.
BTW, Wijnegem had #40262 Christmas Train Ride #40262 and #40263 Christmas Town Square #40263 in stock if I recall correctly.
No mention of the Star Wars pod. Just “Get great savings on selected sets! 18th to 24th Dec”.
The good news is that the surprise is going to be a super surprise though!
So we still have this to look forward to:
Hopefully we'll get #5005376 Star Wars Anniversary Pod sometime next year after they have fixed whatever was wrong with it.
- 12 Dec - 14 Dec: 20% off a mystery set
- 15 Dec - 17 Dec: Double VIP
- 18 Dec - 24 Dec: Offers on Star Wars sets
Unfortunately I can't post a pic since I'm traveling at the moment.
Edit: might confuse this with the 18th-24th promo.
it's probably not yet clear (or even decided as @spicypig posted) what the 12th-14th Super Surprise offer will be.
Same thing for the 18th-24th offer. The mail sent out on the 2nd no longer mentions SW. We know the SW pod is off the table at least temporarily, maybe the replacement offer is not limited to SW or is something else altogether.
It's also in line with what Promobricks and Hothbricks have reported as changes to this month's offers.
Those sources are usually more reliable than a store employee ;)
I think they must know what set is going to be the Super Suprise offer. Considering the SW sales are going to happen after it, I would say it wouldn't be any of the SW sets, plus probably none of the sets that received Black Friday reductions. I'd also say it would have to be a fairly large set to be singled out as a 'super' suprise. So going on that line of thinking maybe Ninjago City or Assembly Square? Or perhaps the Disney Castle? Too optimistic? Not that I want any of those sets as I have AS already and am not looking to buy the other two.
Customer services might be able to send one out.
I did that, and got a pretty much copy-paste response. I did reply (in case they got the wrong end of the stick) but obviously that was before Christmas...
#30356 Hot Dog Stand is sold out online, so free when buying any City set in store only while stocks last there.
The offers are valid 04-07 May; nothing yet about anything for Black VIP card holders.
- Free #40288 BB-8 when spending EUR65/GBP65 or more on Star Wars sets
- Double VIP on all Star Wars sets (excl the new UCS Y-Wing #75181)
- 20% of selected SW sets - no details yet though
Actually is BB8 definitely on all weekend (subject to stock)? Sure I saw it was to be one day only (4th). I mentioned to brand store staff a week or so ago and they didn't correct me.
As usual, the Lego Store employees are super nice, but they don't always get their info much earlier than we AFOL's do...
