    So the site let me place an order from the US with a US shipping address and a US billing address. The charge is showing as pending in my bank account. What are the chances the order will actually go through? :)

    ^ "6. Only available TO UK residents."

    Their site might not catch it but fulfillment might cancel it based on the legal/rules at the bottom of the site.

    Pretty much no chance as I suspect sending 10,000 they will be using pre-paid postage packages with enough postage for the UK only.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 2,131
    I actually didn't see the "UK only" until after I placed my order.
  • Cam_n_StuCam_n_Stu UKMember Posts: 368
    I suspect they are going to have some issues with this promo if it is only supposed to be for subscribers of the magazine - given how widely it has been promoted on the Internet today. I expect some actual subscribers won't even have received their copy of the magazine yet!

    Presumably anyone who buys the mag would have access to the code, so not just subscribers I guess...

    Well, if I get them I get them. :)

    Some say, his skin has the texture of ABS...
    Some say, he is illegal in 17 U.S. States.
    All we know is, he's called "The Stig".

    He's one of the easiest minifigures to make at home, but you lucky ducks in the UK can get a keychain! Which is perfect, because, you know, cars have keys.

    It's the hottest thing on HUKD in a week. Surely they are all gone by now?
  • bricksanbricksan Member Posts: 566
    I just placed two orders to two different shipping address, so will be getting 10 for various people across the globe. It's great when your in laws only live 5 mins walk away I can get stuff shipped there as well :-)
  • jdylakjdylak Member Posts: 281
    And WHY is this so hot???
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,776
    ^ It's LEGO. It's TOP GEAR.

    Two well liked brands, combined.

    And the all important factor - it's cheap.
    And guessing about 5,000 of them will be on ebay by the end of the week.

  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,776
    I hope there is some sort of branding on it, just to stop the fakes. It is easy enough to make the minifig and add a keyring to its head.

    I'd also hold off trading them for now. I'd wait until they are in hand. The website is still taking orders, but I would imagine they are close to the 10,000 by now. If not over already.

    There seems to be some branding on the packaging only.

    I'm in Australia, and just placed an order seemed to all go through fine. Bit of a fail on there part if it really is only for UK residents. Why have a "country" field in the address section if only for UK, ok I supposes England, Scottland etc? but they really should only have had a drop down menu if that's the case. I suppose they get to have fun cancelling all the non UK orders now. Worth a try any way.
  • paul_mertonpaul_merton UKMember Posts: 2,966
    If you buy 5, it comes to £12.45 for "postage and packaging". That's taking the micky!
  • mressinmressin Lego City... erm LondonMember Posts: 843
    I assume the (lack of) branding of the figure is what makes it so cheap.

    Does anybody know if it's glued?
  • leemcgleemcg Member Posts: 607
    I can't help but think that they must have had 10,000 orders by now (or maybe ages ago), so I suspect that their front end isn't linked to stock. Moreso when you consider that it's a marketing thing, and they want everyone's details.

    If I was selling I certainly wouldn't sell until I had it in my hand.

    By the way, can anyone check if my memory is failing me. I ordered two stigs yesterday as I have 2 boys, but I thought the drop down box for quantity went up to higher numbers, maybe 5. However today, having taken a look, it says 2 max in the T&C and the dropdown only goes to 2.


    Does anyone else remember having the opportunity to order more than 2, or am I just going mad?

    @leemcg Your memory serves you well. It went up to 5 yesterday.
  • leemcgleemcg Member Posts: 607
    @mressin Always good to hear that my sanity is safe for another week :-)
  • leemcgleemcg Member Posts: 607
    Also makes me even more convinced they are already over 10,000. Maybe they'll cut bigger orders down to 2, rather than cancelling completely?
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,776
    It did go up to five, I went for three.
  • ChanMcLChanMcL Member Posts: 1,224
    @greekmick just wondering where did you get the image from??

    If they are yours, they got posted quickly?
  • leemcgleemcg Member Posts: 607
    GIven that they've obviously added the "Max 2 per household" to the T&C, I wonder if this clause was always there:

    "For your chance to get hold of a Lego Stig keyring, enter your relevant details and payment."

    Makes it sounds more like a raffle than a purchase.
  • greekmickgreekmick UKMember Posts: 710
    @ChanMcL - someone on HUKD posted the image and said they received them today.
  • ChanMcLChanMcL Member Posts: 1,224
    ohhh.... well they dispatched it quickly!

    Some say it’s not available in the shops, but we know how you can get one… Welcome to Lego Stig, available to buy with a special code from Top Gear magazine...

    And we all know, the code is ******!

    Edit: Here the the link:

  • paul_mertonpaul_merton UKMember Posts: 2,966
    Before I knew what the code was, I looked at the source of the webpage and found it hidden in there :)

  • TyoSoloTyoSolo Member Posts: 539
    I've had a couple of requests to send them overseas which I won't be able to fulfil now that they've limited them. At the same time, it's good, because it means more of the TG readers will actually get a chance to get one.

    I bought the magazine so my conscience is clear :-)

    The torso design from the SW AT-ST pilot would have set the stig off great and would reduce counterfeits.

    Ordered one to my home in the UK (with my Canadian billing address). Here's hoping? Thanks for posting everyone!
  • TheBrickLaddTheBrickLadd Chippenham, Wilts, UK.Member Posts: 844
    Did anyone get a confirmation email after ordering? Cheers
  • khmellymelkhmellymel United KingdomMember Posts: 1,292
    ^ I did not, but I saved the "successful" screen afterward.
  • TheBrickLaddTheBrickLadd Chippenham, Wilts, UK.Member Posts: 844
    ^ good idea. Done the same.
  • TyoSoloTyoSolo Member Posts: 539
    Ordered mine on Thursday, they arrived today, so nothing to worry about!

    ^I did that too, just in case.
