I mean I don't mean to sound ungrateful but dang, this is how you kick things off?
So bottom line no black card for me, and no promos untill the system can be updated with my "new" number if possible.
Hmmm, this reminds me of something...
(Alt text: By the third trimester, there will be hundreds of babies inside of you.)
I got an email about Ship In A Bottle earlier today, so they are capable of sending me an email when they feel like it.
The black card seems to be more trouble than it's worth, I've already received mine in the wrong name after Lego changed my account name 3-4 times without my permission and now I'm waiting for a replacement card.
No double VIP points showing up for me either, seems a mess.
It's back in stock online at John Lewis:
Now, double points SW to qualify for the 60th Anniversary set, or wait to get 2 Year of the Dog sets? hmmm
We've seen a fair number of #75192 available at a handful of retailers in Europe recently. Stock seems to last longer than a couple of days too - John Lewis (UK) still has stock in the UK at the moment.
Lego store availability remains a rare occurrence still, both online and in stores. The Bluewater supervisor I spoke this week said it had been weeks since they received a shipment. Maybe LEGO decided to give retail priority for now.
This means you can buy a UCS Falcon at RRP in these countries without too much effort. It also means people not "in the know" can get the set at normal price instead of inflated reseller prices. I've already seen reseller prices in the 1100 -1200 € range slashed to near-RRP.
After nearly 6 months, the market is cooling down a little bit. I'm confident we'll see the set regularly discounted in another 6 months.
Also, I can confirm that when you use your card in store for the promo you don’t need to have the actual black card with you.
And I noticed that the Lepin MF has started showing up on that auction and has an additional 1000 pieces..
So what's the point in ever running a Black VIP promo when there's already another running? That literally makes no sense.
-grasping at straws-
I'm very, very interested to see what the deal is with that metallic R2-D2.
I would contact C.S. about this. I went into a store over the weekend and picked up a small Star Wars set to take me over the spend threshold to get the 60 years set.
Used my old VIP card and didn't even mention I had a black VIP card and my receipt showed the extra points had been added by the till.
Your experience was very different from mine. I'm in the UK, I visited the Leicester Square store - I bought BB8, Justice League Party, and the Valentines Bunny, which came to just over £100 (after discounts). They then gave me the 60th Anniversary set, scanned it (It came up with a value of £0.01, or 1p), and I walked out. My Lego.com account now shows double points for BB8.
