    Customer service told me it was a glitch they were working out but that all eligible orders should receive the promo.  I made my order over the phone and the girl I spoke with insisted my $2.49 keyring purchase would get me the promo.

    It is retiring soon too so add that to your argument arsenal! Good luck!

    I had the same result- the CS representative indicated the glitch and that I should expect to receive the promo item separately.  She also recommended I get back with them in a couple of days to make sure it went out.  For all of [email protected]’s faults, the customer service at The LEGO Group is really top notch.

    Still waiting for my email with code and don’t have time to ring customer service. Start to finish the black VIP has been a nightmare, seeing as Lego put the wrong name on my card the first time I’m not holding much hope of sorting this out :(

    Hands up who assumes there will be enough stock to go round and is going to wait till January so there is something new to purchase? Not this guy! *frantically adding Boba Fett keyring to shopping bag*
    I wouldn't wait too long. Come January 1st they'll probably have another glitch and release the unclaimed ones for 1p available to all again.

    I wonder how many of these will be showing up on eBay, having been claimed by folks who bought and resold the set.

    All worked fine for me in the UK. I added Boba Fett brickheadz to basket, then I applied my code but the promo didn't appear, so I refreshed the [email protected] page and the little dude popped into the basket. There was no option to amend the quantity, as it is supposed to be one per household (a good move, I think) so I completed the payment side of things with PayPal.
    Both items are present on the paypal transaction, the order status on [email protected] and on my order confirmation too.
    Order is now "in warehouse" so fingers crossed, it's worked okay :-).

    I missed the email as it is hidden in a standard Double VIP email. Recheck your Lego emails, as I would have missed it if I hadnt of now been looking for it

    If I could get £100 for mine and my black VIP card, I'd consider it sold (any offers? :) ). Would claw back some of the JL/Smyths pricing differential when they discount. I was expecting some decent exclusive promos from this, not a taunting reminder of what a sucker I was to pay full price for the most expensive Lego set ever.

    So I was able to talk my wife into letting me get the UCS Slave 1. Just placed my order with my promo code and it was added to my cart as well as the holiday free gift. Hopefully they'll be here by the end of next week. Though the wife might torture me by wrapping them up for Christmas :P

    Thanks. Nobody in my house/immediate family is all that into Star Wars. My son saw a picture of a jawa minifigure and thinks those are cool for some reason so maybe a Tatooine battle pack for him or something.

    Just ordered a power functions battery box (forgot to order one for my motorised Technic Rally Car), the SW advent calendar (for next year) and the black card holder. I see there are 3 up from the UK - 2 for bids, 1 buy it now for £200 - anyone here?

    Mine's shipped too. Boba Fett on my keys will replace a rather tired and shabby looking Kiss Kiss Batman lol

    Ended up purchasing #41627, #41628, and #41629 to get the stand.

    Of course those three combined didn't hit the $35 threshold for free shipping, so I added #41617 and #41618 to the order since I intended to get them for my wife for Christmas anyway.

    Had to call CS to get my code, but they gave me one no problem. Put a $100 in to get to freebies. Everything showed in cart, and receipt no problem. Now it's just the waiting game to see how the box arrives.

    I know this will likely be an unpopular thing to say here but I’d laugh so hard if this turned out to be one of the promos that they completely overproduced and wound up for sale in a couple of months time!

    Thanks for reminding me, I forgot I had one of these somewhere that I hadn't opened yet. :)

    (Ironic that it's probably more exclusive in Europe than anything given out for the B.C. Promo)

    Believe it or not, so would I.
    Would end the Black Card promo with the sputter and fizzle it deserves.

    At 1 code per person, only redeemable centrally and they know exactly how many they need in each territory, I doubt that will happen. There might be a very modest overproduction to cover anything getting lost in the post - that'll be it.

    Wow, not even a special box like the Ideal sets. What it cost LEGO to con us into paying full price? Maybe $5 for the year of exclusives, and promos.

    The extra card is nice, but they could at least have produced a box. Truly underwhelming.

    Or on the other hand, we now have a polybag everyone will covet and pay us $100s for! Right?! Y'all quit devaluing mine with your naysaying!

    Just seen this on facebook. Looks like the polybag has another card included in it.


    Now, the card meaning the picture has its own backing, I do like :)

    Although, does that mean people will sell the new blank card, and display their named card? LOL

    I find it delightfully funny that they're including a card - the same card they couldn't send out to customers months after they spent the money on the set.

    I wouldn’t mind a second figure as I plan to MOD mine to turn it into me.
    i am often see sporting a T-shirt very similar to the one on the figure so would be really nice, but then having one as intended for posterity would be nice as well... first world problems.
