I know it's easy to criticise with hindsight - would be interesting to see what TLG's opinion is now of their own Black Card promo - surely they can't think it went smoothly and was a success?
What it comes down to is your personal details - if you want to share them with Lego, you're a VIP, that's basically how easy it is. I'm still not raging too much about what we've got as Black VIPs, but I am definitely disappointed at the lack of anything particularly special.
I would have been happy to have something like this as part of the black VIP promotion.
Had a reply within 30 mins that was both apologetic and amusing, and they're sending out not only a new Card Holder set, but a new Landspeeder too.
That seems fair enough (assuming that the new pack turns up intact), and I appreciate that their operatives actually write an appropriate email, rather than just sending a stock reply.
It's restored some, if not all, of my faith in TLG.
I'd like to be a fly on the wall in the Lego marketing / brand loyalty / Shop at Home team meetings from now onwards - "What about these cool VIP promos?" "Nah, normies will moan too much so make the VIPs moan instead". Or "What about these nice promotional items and exclusive minifigs?" "Yeah, just leave those with the Americans and their conventions - I'm sure the rest of the world won't mind"
I noticed this (renamed section) had (re)appeared last week.
I'm seeing the details of the promotion within that section.
I also found a link to the item page in my order history here.
I was looking at pictures of the MF and a good VIP gift might have been a kit that can convert it to the Solo movie version. It will be just some blue pieces along with parts to build the escape pod portion. I'm sure most people prefer the nonSolo version but would be a nice gift for the early fans and supporters.
I'm seeing #30602 First Order Stormtrooper in a new light as well....at least it was only briefly disappointing!

We might be overthinking this!
I don't like Harry Potter.
