Kruidvat lists mosts sets they offer 10-15% below RRP so this recurring promo brings most of the sets Kruidvat offers - a limited range of smaller sets - down to about 25-35%ish off RRP. Contrary to the previous times this promo ran most sets carried are still in stock at the moment.
Until when is the kruidvat promo running?
TBH, I was surprised stock of #5005255 lasted as long as it did. There's certainly less chance of flogging the minifig set for 35-45€ (as was apparently possible with the HP set) and there's generally less interest in JW compared to HP too - but the set was almost available until the end of the promo week. It's even possible TRU pulled the promo anyway today to make sure there's no overlap and to prepare for tomorrow's Ninjago promo. Maybe there's even stock left in that case - especially in physical stores. If that's the true, that stock might be made available for purchase at some point.
Today's officially the last day of the Kruidvat promo, at least according to the BE ad leaflet.
Good luck to those trying find something worthwhile to reatch the minimum gift-with-purchase amount!
My friend asked my to go, since he isn't available to be present at the event...
Anyone else who heard about this? What could this big news be?
Anyhoo, 4th and last TRU.nl and TRU.de bricktober minifig week. Buiness as usual: #5005256 priced at 999,99€ until you add a qualifying value of sets to your shopping cart - it then becomes free.
Wasn't going to get it originally but my missus informed me we were running dangeously low on birthday gift favorites #42072 and #42073 so I put an order in.
More likely it will indeed be a Lego diorama; I don't see TLG making a set announcement at Train World. Please report back on October 01 @wardm!
An update on #5005256 availability at TRU: seems these sold out around lunchtime already. The set shows as unavailable for delivery on the DE site (they were never available for in-store pick-up); on the NL site they're "temporarily unavailable" - typically a stage before the set is pulled from the site altogether like #5005254.
For comparison: HP fig stock at least lasted until Monday evening. JW #5005255 lasted almost the whole week as @wardm reported and at this moment it seems you can still get Ninjago minifig set #5005257 .
Missed out on the Marvel bricktober sets, I hope that they'll become available in Belgium through the official LEGO store maybe...? I heard about rumours that they might release the bricktober sets in the US through official LEGO stores in november (but I can't recall where I read about this)
Anyone got a chance to buy two sets of the Marvel and JW ones? I'm happy I was right on time for the HP minifigures, cause they were on top of my list!
Not really much more details than what @wardm has posted already, but from the language used I think we can be sure it will be a diorama.
Still a mini-chance that Dirk Denoyelle will produce a SNCB Type 12 LCP set to go with the expo ;)
That's one #75218 x-wing at an all time low of €59,49 ordered! Impressive discount, even a bit less than the Amazon uk offer (and Amazon uk does not ship for free to Benelux).
Kruidvat has an easy in-store return policy so on the off-chance I can score 2 more of them for 90 € over the WE I might return the first one.
Got myself a start of a squadron ;-)
I had to put in my Kruidvat order yesterday morning while on traveling as I just got offf a plane in Brussels Airport. The long night before had been spent traveling by plane. Just to illustrate how cooked my brain was: I happily bought 3 LEGO magazines at 8,90 CHF each during a layover in Zurich two hours earlier and it turned out these are about 8 EUR each, not the 4 € my brain assumed they cost. There was no excuse at all for that; I travelled via/to Zurich and Switserland many times before; I know the CHF/EUR rate approaches 1:1 for quite a while now, the Swiss' high living standards coupled with the high consumer price level is a well-known fact to me.
The sensible option turned out to be one #75218 X-Wing and a #70654 Dieselnaut for a total of a few cents short of 110 €. Considering that means a Free X-wing with the Dieselnaut if you'd be willing to pay ridiculous Benelux LEGO RRP that's a very nice deal.
A special thank you for @TheBigLegoski for letting me see the error of my ways in a funny way - one #75218 is plenty as I also own #6212, #9493, #75102 and #75109. The one ordered earlier this week goes back to Kruidvat.
Nothing special, just ordered 2 X-Wings...
Anyone knows when/if the free minifigure display case will be a GWP at Wijnegem?
Also earlier this year there was a Colruyt group cross-brand offer where you received a 5€ off voucher for all Collect&Go purchases of 100€; those were 6-character single use codes.
