This was listed on another site but buying the T1 Camper Van added last year's Mini T1 Camper and Free Classic Spaceman and Free Worriz Polybag starting this afternoon. Unadvertised special or glitch, this is a good deal.

    I tried it and everything added except for the spaceman.

    ^ were you logged in and are you a VIP member?
  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    I tried it, no Spaceman. Logged into my VIP account, and still no Spaceman, but a message at the top that the Spaceman had been added, and that there were 4 items in my cart.

    So, I tried my DH's account and there is the Spaceman. (I already did an order this month and received a Spaceman.)

    Maybe the one per VIP account is now enforced.

    It wasn't working when OP originally posted this, but it is now. In for 5, thanks!

    I wonder if the ~$50 value for 40079 will be affected by this..?

    It’s also available in Canada.

    Awesome! Thanks for the heads up! I love displaying a big and little version of models next to each other but had traded away my original camper van from last year. Now the big one can have a baby! ;-)

    Sometime you just need to refresh the page to see the Promotional Product to appear in the cart. Even when the message say it’s been added on the top of the page but it doesn’t appear on the bottom.

    Does anyone believe the mini VW will actually ship?
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,916
    Yes, I believe it will. As reported on the "other"site several people called and were told that it is indeed an unadvertised promotion while supplies last.

    So unexpected and tempting but my Lego budget is currently non-existent.
  • RennyRenny USAMember Posts: 1,145
    Awesome. Thanks @legogregors‌, I placed an order. With $60 saved up in VIP points this was a great deal.
  • CircleKCircleK U.S. - Columbus, OhioMember Posts: 1,055
    Damn... That tipped the scales for me. I've been on the fence for this one for a long time now. I guess this was the deal I've been waiting for.

    This was an unexpected blow to my budget. Especially when I consider the next Winter Village set, CMF 12, and the poorly designed Hobbit wave three that I won't be able to resist. Looks like I will be returning some of those Wally World clearance finds from this weekend.

    Just tried that - and it did get added. I already have a camper van (both sizes), so don't need to order. Thanks for helping to clarify how to make it work.

    Wow, nice deal. Did anyone try placing multiple orders?
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,678
    #30265 Worriz’ Fire Bike does not set limit in its fine print but has "cannot be ... combined with any other ... free gift"
    #40079 does not have fine print as it is not advertised
    #5002812 Minifigure Retro Set has a limit of "5002812 per household", must be a typo :)

    5002811 orders to go to max on the space guy ;-)
  • BuriedinBricksBuriedinBricks USAMember Posts: 1,367
    Thank you for posting! The camper van has been on my list forever and this many freebies is too good to pass up.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,918
    Working in Canada!!!

    I had no plans of getting this set anytime soon, but I may just redeem my $35 VIP points for it.

    No email notification yet, but my order status is now showing "customer service". Hopefully this isn't a bad thing.
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    Offer still good this morning.
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,120
    It ended up working for me and I got the confirmation email this morning. I only ordered one.
  • congruencecongruence Member Posts: 26
    Still good as of this morning, mine went Customer Service for a bit and is now In Process.
  • wagnerml2wagnerml2 Belleville, IllinoisMember Posts: 1,376
    Wow! Good deal! Ordered one too!
  • jpsiroisjpsirois Quebec, CanadaMember Posts: 9
    I also ordered one, and 30 minutes after, I got a notice from bricklink for a set from 2003 I wanted for long time just appear at a bargain, I really had to get it. My Lego budget is really over for now hehe. At least I know I make 2 really big deal on those.

    Pulled the trigger too... I like the VW Wagon and have always wanted to build it. I guess I can always return it to our B&M store if they renege on their part of the deal.

    Whoa! My order just went from "Customer Service" to "In Process" in about 2 minutes. Guess they are wanting to EOL the VW Camper...
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFW/BGMember Posts: 7,340
    You guys always lure me into buying more Lego.
  • cloaked7cloaked7 Member Posts: 1,448
    Got one. A great set with several great freebies. That's a no brainer.
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,632
    I was going to buy the Star Wars calendars for my 2 youngest anyway, so with a couple of extra items this was a nice bonus. I already have the mini camper van and I'm not a VW fan anyway so I don't want the big version.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,918
    Is the sticker sheet the main reason why the Mini T1 Camper poly is so expensive?

    Thanks legogregors!!! It worked for me in Canada with all 3 freebies, even though I had just ordered a VW Van 10220 a couple of weeks ago.
  • 12651265 The Great State of TexasMember Posts: 1,101
    I tried at first with no Spaceman added. But when I signed in, the Spaceman showed up in the cart.

    Is the sticker sheet the main reason why the Mini T1 Camper poly is so expensive?

    It's an iconic vehicle, the mini model is an excellent representation of the larger set (unlike the Mini Cooper poly for example), and the licensed sticker probably all factor in to it. This was also one of the first promos I remember where TLG really enforced the "1 per household" rule on. There was an entire thread dedicated to how pissed off people were about it. So, collectors may not have got as many as they wanted through the regular retail channels to begin with. Ultimately though - it's just a really cool little set that a lot of people found appealing. Mix that demand with a limited release and BOOM goes the dynamite.

    ^ Also, the white roof Panels are fairly rare. Because of this, most people can't build the mini bus from their spare parts.
  • 12651265 The Great State of TexasMember Posts: 1,101
    My order has shipped. All freebies included.

    Same here. Btw @1265, your avatar freaks me out every time ;)

    Just noticed on the [email protected] description for #10220 Camper Van:
    "As seen in Men’s Journal November 2011 What’s New section"

    What's next :)
  • mobilelinkagemobilelinkage Member Posts: 49
    Strange. It says "This is a promotional item and is not available for sale." when you get to the product page of set 40079, however it has a price tag and a sale price tag. Was it being on sale ever?
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,678
    ^ It was on sale at one of my local LEGO store in January for $2.48 each.

    Oh did you get any?

  • canon03canon03 USAMember Posts: 355
    ^ Knowing the value for this...the right question is, how many?
    jpsirois
  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,678
    ^^ There were not that many and there was a limit of 2, they were gone in less than a day.
  • OdinduskOdindusk Member Posts: 763
    I received a shipping notification (with all freebies included) less than 24 hours after ordering. Thanks for the heads-up.

    They were also briefly on sale at the LEGO store I normally go to (around January as well). I think they were about the same price, maybe 5 dollars though (cannot remember). Snagged a couple then as my nephew wanted one as well. There were only about 5 left, so I got two and my GF got one and someone else picked up two.

    As for this deal today, a bit painful to buy a set that could be around for another year at retail, but decided to bite the bullet and do it.
    Three promos/giveaways with one set is a pretty sweet deal IMO.
  • BuriedinBricksBuriedinBricks USAMember Posts: 1,367
    My order shipped today, apparently with everything intact.
