Billund Lego Shopping

edited April 2022 in Buying & Selling Topics
I am planning to travel to Billund to visit the Lego House from London and would like to get some of the exclusives. 

Could anyone give some advise on what I should be looking for? I know the lego house exclusive sets, but is there anything else? For the legoland does it have any exclusives unique to Billund?

There is one more question on the travel side, I am going there by Ryanair. I only have a hand bag with me when I go to Billund, but on return I bought an additional quota for the cabin bag (10kg). Can I just carry those lego I bought in a bag as the cabin bag or it has to be a suitcase? I would love to hear some advise.

Many thanks!

    If the bag meets Ryanair's stringent and stingy cabin bag size constraints, then yes!

    Remember someone else might ram a suitcase into the overhead locker so you might want more protection than a thin plastic bag if you want to keep the boxes in nice condition.

    Not aware of anything unique to Billund from a Legoland sets perspective - same sets as in UK etc.

    Don't forget the exclusives in the Airport shop if they still have them there such as #40199

    As UK is now outside of EU you should be able to get a tax refund in Denmark but you need a special type of receipt from the store and to get it stamped at airport etc.. I am not 100% sure on the method but someone on here must have done this by now. Obviously you're supposed to declare and pay on the way into the UK customs. Not sure if you can get away with customs based on VAT paid in Denmark (collected at source) or if better to go down the VAT refund route in Denmark and then pay UK VAT on import... Obv depends on if < or > £135 too.

    You can carry Lego in hand-luggage or in cases, bags etc. or even in cardboard / plastic boxes... as long as it's within the weight/size limits.

    If ever do checked baggage instead worth knowing about size limits as much as weight limits for checked baggage.. when I flew back with BA I was allowed 2 x 23Kg within size limit of a whopping 190cm x 75cm x 65cm each (Ryanair I think is a whopping 81cm x 119cm x 119cm).. I asked for some empty shipping boxes in the Lego shop, packed everything really well (took some duct tape and air pockets with me!) and just taped the boxes together and dropped it at the oversized baggage belt in Billund and it arrived perfectly (very little handling/damage opportunity on short route, small plane, tiny airport etc.)... by time i'd finished it was around 1.2m high and maybe 60cm x 40 cm around.

    also, work out the maths but a season pass for legoland (april to october) and an annual pass for lego house (all year round) are worth considering.. You can upgrade a day ticket for lego house to an annual pass at the counter there even at the end of your visit. Depending on level of season pass for legoland also gives you a series of discounts etc. including 50% off day ticket to Lego House, 10% of all sets at legoland and the ones to look at seriously 25% off any one lego set at legoland per month and 25% off short-breaks plus other things.... if you get the Extreme annual pass which at £115 (£70 to £80 more than a day ticket) could pay for itself if you can get the swag home.

    Does the free entry to Legoland after 4pm still operate? Gives about an hour for a flying visit, or it did when I went on the Brickset weekender a few years ago.

    Its worth noting as well that the Lego store at Billund airport makes carrying large full Lego bags onto Ryanair planes legitimate.

    Free entry after 4pm? Wish this is still operate! I have not planned to visit legoland, but if I can get in free, I will definitely check the shop inside :)
