    Are you implying I am a stain on our community?
    Nope, just a Forum skid mark.

    To go (only slightly) back on topic, my Pooh print did indeed arrive with the typo on it. Contacted CS and they're supposedly sending me a new print, along with refunding my points and sending some "presents".

    Anyone else having issue getting into the vip rewards page? It’s asking to accept some terms but then it doesn’t actually let you in, it says something went wrong.

    I have a Bricks and Pieces order waiting in the cart because I wanted to double check the VIP offers before checking out... not sure why an update would cause a T&C glitch, but with Lego.com nothing surprises me anymore!

    I've also noticed lately that ABP has caused the images on the rewards page from loading at all.  Not sure if this is a change to something in the VIP page backend, ABP, or both.

    If the Probe is going to available in the immediate timeframe, it won’t be something that’s accessible until around midnight tonight - if it doesn’t appear then, then you know it has been fully delayed.

    On the main page some are saying that Lego has had to delay the launch of the Ulysses space probe - probably due to bad weather at Kennedy Space Center...

    Maybe they really were stuck in the canal!  Jokes aside though, at least we know about it early and won't all be waiting for it to go live while we watch the shuttle sell out from under us.

    I suppose it's something that they gave people notice before it went live which has saved me stopping up till stupid-o-clock to wrestle with [email protected] not working. I would have justified the sit up and full price to get both sets but at least now I'll get a good night's sleep and won't get shouted at by the missus.

    One post on the main site details a call with CS where they supposedly said there were only 300 of the GWP for all of Europe- hence the delay until they could build up more stock...

    300 is basically nothing. That would have made so many people angry.

    It’s not a GWP though.  300 ‘gifts’ is a problem, but this set is not a gift.

    On the basis it’s a ‘buy-in’ reward, with more on their way presumably, what’s up with releasing them in batches?

    My whole reasoning to get the shuttle day one was that if I could have got the tie in set when purchasing it for essentially a tenner (that the 1800 points would have been worth if I'd changed them up to spend) the purchase would have been worthwhile. To get the shuttle then have to buy again at RRP to get the exclusive is just not worth sitting up for. If this turns out to be another Bat-Pod blink and you miss the promotion type thing with only minimal extra sets produced, I may as well wait until the shuttle's discounted from other avenues.

    Lego's inability to conceive the notion that VIP's want exclusive sets in exchange for rewards points is mind boggling at this point.  They really need to produce more.  No offense to those that want them but I don't find any value to me personally in spending my hard earned points on a print I have no intention of framing & hanging on a wall.  And how many key chains does one need?  I have absolutely no clue what that Lego Tower reward is for but I  think it's something virtual.
    pxchrisgmonkey76
  • MugenPowerMugenPower Member Posts: 570
    Maybe they should switch all those prints and downloadable coloring sheets to NFTs and jack up the VIP points requirement by 100x.  Then, more people might actually want them and sales will be driven up because that select group will be rushing to buy sets solely to earn enough VIP points.  ;)

    To those in the US who've gotten and framed some of the LEGO prints, what's your best cheap framing option you've found? The prints seem to be kind of an odd size for us.

    Space Coin acquired! It’s now available in the UK at least, not sure for how long. When you’ve already redeemed one you can’t see when it goes out of stock.

    Clicking the Ulysses probe just takes me to an endless spinner :-/ But maybe because I’m in the US.

    I can't see it either. I've been checking since 11pm. Tried Android phone, Chrome and Edge on PC. Nada. The website did crap out at midnight for a couple of mins though.

    I'd like the Space coin, although the only other one I got was Pirates. Id be seriously pissed if I collected the other three (and case), then missed out on Space. There's bound to be some people falling into that category.

    I bought a couple 11x17 frames from Michael's. I'm going to put a bit of tape on the backs to keep them in place and center them. Michael's always has their frames on sale.
