Anyone know the May 15th VIP Early Access set?

Title says it all. 21108 Ghostbusters has been rumored. Can anyone confirm?

    Also rumored to be the Mini Cooper or the Fairground Mixer.

    It's the Mixer.

    Boo! My least favourite of the three.

    @bluedragon have you seen pictures of the Mini?

    Thanks Huw. Was hoping for #21108 to fill out a PAB order and hit the threshold for free shipping.

    Will probably wait for June to get the Balloon Cart.

    ^no- I am just assuming it will follow the footsteps of the VW beetle and the camper van and be a great set. I'm not a big fan of the mixer but that may change when I see it live.

    Has it been posted yet? I thought TLG lists things at 12am eastern time.

    It's in the (UK) shop, but says "Coming Soon on 1 Jun 2014"

    Our store calendar says the preview days are may 15th-17th. Nothing yet though...

    Now showing as available for sale in the US.... but annoyingly out of stock -- Shipping in 30 days!

    So much for VIP early access.

    I just clicked your link, and it is showing available. I'm still not sure I want to spend $149.99 on it.

    How did you guys find that? They advertise that you get access as a VIP member, yet I don't see an obvious way to find it had I not read this...

    Kinda lame they don't offer the Balloon Cart with it early too. Why anyone would prefer two weeks early over a free poly that pairs perfectly with it is beyond me.

    You have to be logged in. It didn't show it for me until I did.

    I am and I can see it when I click the link, but I don't see how I would find it if I hadn't clicked the link. There is no obvious advertisement for it, unless I'm missing something.

    I have not seen a LEGO calendar for June, What does the Poly look like?

    I really hate having to pay 150 for a mixer... I guess I know what Ill be using my VIP points on, at least it will cushion the blow, though I would wait for a giveaway before buying. I can wait the whole two weeks.

    @‌Mandalorian_Builder

    I think that is the point, to keep it hidden from the "public". It was advertised on the May calendar and probably via VIP newsletter email.
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,351
    Thanks @Russell844‌ . Yeah, definitely will wait until June to make a LEGO purchase

  • Mandalorian_BuilderMandalorian_Builder Member Posts: 197
    It's on the homepage now when you are logged into your VIP account. Weird, it wasn't before.

    According to the brickset.com news item that has just appeared, you will get the ballon cart. I can't see it on the lego site to check...

    Its not on the UK homepage yet, but if you search for its model number it shows the splash screen about exclusive for VIP's that they show for all the early releases (with the picture of the set) and allows you to look at it in the shop, but says out 1st of June and won't let you put it in the basket as there is no button to buy.

    £119.99 in the UK.

    Mixer ordered from [email protected] uk, flashback shredder and balloon cart were included for free.
  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman UKMember Posts: 1,510
    According to the card in the window you get the baloon cart straight away no need to wait till next month.
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,351
    Only in UK or is it global?
    On US site it is only showing the fairground mixer and the ticket for LEGOLAND.
    No cart.

    ^ It is Europe Only, Balloon Cart promo in US will start June 1st.

    Anyone willing to post instructions for the balloon cart when available? We've been out of the loop for the past month while dealing with medical issues and I ordered the mixer not knowing the balloon cart would be a freebie in June.
  • talostalos Member Posts: 49
    I just pretend bought the mixer, and only a 'free ticket offer' got added to the shopping bag..no balloon cart... I will wait..LOL I don't think I want the mixer yet anyway, I don't have any space to display it at the moment.

    ^^ you could always leave it sealed and return-rebuy it in June at the Lego Store. I am sure they wouldn't mind
