    Just bought the UCS Falcon and Y-Wing with double points on the Falcon. I originally chose not to get the new Falcon but regretted missing out on it in the end and was pretty happy to see it back in stock for this promotion.

    Kind of strange that the Y-Wing didn't qualify for double points though, oh well.

    Are you sure you got double points on the Falcon?  I checked but my cart didn’t show double points on it. 
  • RennyRenny USAMember Posts: 1,144
    Yeah, it said something like 1300 or so points would be earned.

    You may have to hit the EDIT/CHECKOUT button to see the correct VIP points.

    Just ordered #75144 Snowspeeder at 20% discount to get free #40288 BB-8 and used my black card voucher to get #5005624 Y-Wing blueprint poster. Double VIP on top is a nice bonus! :)

    How did you get 20% off? That set is not showing up as on sale in the States....or are you Birmingham, England?

    I totally get why the Y-Wing doesn’t qualifies for x2 points, but the MF does.  The YW just came out!  Why lose cashing in on those that can't wait and have to have it as soon as it’s available?  There’s all the time in the world to put YWs on sale.

    There's MUCH less demand for the MF now.  Is there really any demand?  I mean besides a few stragglers I figured anyone that wanted 1 would have found it by now.  I believe TLG have been and still are pumping out tons of these and will be sitting on them for quite a while. 

    Edit - it was actually this post from the [email protected] thread that I meant to quote:

    Must say I'm surprised they'll give double points on the UCS MF and not on the Y-Wing set, which is only a quarter the price.

    Do you see the blueprint in your order? I have the BB8 but no poster in my overview.
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,221
    @stefxan The blueprint will be added to your order when you enter the code you received.

    Which’s great if you gave actually received an email - which I have not despite having the black card and the right email settings in my account.

    I love how the blue card is supposedly a black VIP card exclusive, yet some other retailers also have stock to give away.

    Yes, I'm in Birmingham in the UK. :)
    The snowspeeder is actually available elsewhere in the UK for 20% off (Smyths Toys) but the extra freebie and 2xVIP sealed he deal.

    I'm undecided, with my lunchbreak looming, whether to shoot through to the Metrocentre and pick up Y-Wing UCS, BB8 bobblehead (with poor reviews) and the crummy black card poster. Or not bother. If they'd chuck in a leftover Vader pod i'd be more sure. 30 mins to make my decision...

    @monkeyhanger - They wouldn't give me or my wife vader pods at the metrocenter. Instruction from head office :(  She even popped in last night and confirmed they had pods still available and said that she'd be coming today.
  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 2,841
    Brainslugged. Just been to Metrocentre and got my Y-Wing, despite initial reaction of the built one in the window was that I was slightly underwhelmed by it. Had to dig out the code on my phone's email to get my poster (no automatic recognition of black card status?). They didn't look to input the code, just acknowledge that I had one. They threw in a freebie Scarif Trooper with the BB8. The guy serving seemed a bit sheepish at how crap the poster was when he handed it over. I said "wow! The best thing about the black VIP card is the actual card.". He agreed and thought it should at least be as big as the model (A3).

    I love those Scarif Troopers. I have lots already, but still bummed they didn't offer me one.

    Still after a scarif trooper, would have preferred that to a poster. oh well.

    I did the same, although I'm not sure why I need a second #75144 in reality....

    I'm expecting the usual, disappointed, look from Mrs Lobot when it arrives!

    ^^^^
    Yeah! That Scarif trooper is totally wicked! (or awesome if you like)
    I would not mind TLG doing a Scarif trooper battle pack set with two regular Scarif troopers that were in #75171 and one identical to the polybag, and a regular white stormtrooper covered with sand and patches of dust. And as a small build: some weapons crates (with proper minifig SW blasters), an orange cyber crystal container, and/or a small power generator console display plug-in thingy.

    Back on topic:
    Well I am pretty happy with the Jedi StarFighter being on special offer with 20% off. It was on my wish-list ever since it came out, so I thought now is a good time to get it.
    I also scored #75210 Moloch's speeder over at bol.com with a discount of €10,04 for €44,95 and a free #40298 DJ polybag.

    Wow, ordered the U-Wing this morning as it will be retired soon and it already shipped! Now I have extra VIP points to play mental gymnastics with to justify overspending at the Frankfurt Lego store next week.

    Picked up #75187 at the Mall of America LEGO store today, and got the bobble-8 poly and the “poster”. Interestingly, all I had to do to get the poster was mention I had a black card. The cashier didn’t ask for my secret code.

    I got the Y-wing (and Moloch's Landspeeder) at Mall of America yesterday. I got the BB-8, Vader pod, and Y-wing poster. I don't have a black VIP card. Then later at a Wal-mart, feeling Series 18 bags looking for Cactus Girl, I found the Classic Policeman! Cactus girl too. It was a very good May the Fourth!!

    So, the poster isn’t all that exclusive, then, I guess.

    How’d you get the Vader pod? Just ask?
  • KaitchKaitch N. IrelandMember Posts: 379
    I don't suppose anyone has a spare BB-8 they'd like to trade?
  • BrainsluggedBrainslugged England (the grim North)Member Posts: 887
    ^I'd trade for an Iron Man Silver Centurion if you happened to have one.

    I hope that was just a mistake by the store employee.  If it really isn't an exclusive for Black Card VIPs, that's totally lame.

    Making a VIP Black Card give-away available to everyone is exponentially lame.  Especially when there really hasn't been any exclusive perks to begin with.

    Unless the blueprint isn't really exclusive.  I suppose that's a different kind of lame.

    @Astrobricks They just gave me the Vader pod. I already have one; do you want it? I'd take any reasonable trade.

    Thanks for the offer @560Heliport, but I wasn’t really very interested in it. I just wondered why we were treated differently. Maybe you got the Vader pod for NOT being a black card holder ;)

    I picked up the UCS YW at 0001 on the 4th. When I initially had the YW in my cart, it was putting the Vader pod as my gwp instead of the BB8 poly. When I got shipping info, it had been changed to BB8. I wanted the Vader pod!

    Picked up #75211 Imperial TIE Fighter Friday. Got (another) Vader pod and a Groot keychain.

    I've got a probe droid, a mini Slave 1, and a weapons rack, if you're still looking to get rid of the Vader pod.

    Sorry, gave it to a friend. But I'll remember you if I get another!
