My emails came from Line Ann, then she referenced Lone Elene. All email addresses were [email protected]
I have a quite long shopping list. What would be the best way to bring all the lego sets bought in Billund back to the UK? Should I bring more luggage or I can ship them in Billund (is it going to be very expensive or any tax issue)? Or any other idea?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
Flying to UK is a bonus as short hop so based on that this is what I did.
I nipped into Lego House and asked in the shop for spare boxes (mixed sizes), then as i'd taken air pockets/packing etc with me in those large mostly empty cases I packed 'box in box in box' into those and went to town with duct tape (take your own as in the supermarket in Billund only had expensive tiny rolls) ok and I took a handheld luggage scale.
Then check your airline baggage policy, with all airlines you don't need to check in cases, you can check in a cardboard box (in fact I checked in 4 large cardboard boxes all taped together as one single massive box).. whilst you're set on weight limits the actual max physical dimensions allowed are huge (BA= 90 x 75 x 43cm), Ryanair = 81cm x 119cm x 119cm) so you can physically get a lot of Lego in as long as under the weight.. and you just drop/collect at the excess baggage belt and in my case as it's oversized it doesn't go on the automated belts which reduces the handling/damage aspects.
Lots of people on the tour opened their sets and deflated the bags, flat packed the boxes etc.. as that way you can get loads into a case, but if you're happy to do that then nothing to lose in leaving them all boxed and sending as above.
I looked at shipping myself from billund via courier and it was more expensive than paying for an additional bag one-way on the return flight.
This was all pre-brexit, now post-brexit you can bring in £390 value of goods with no impact but more than that you could be hit with import VAT and duty on all of it, huge cardboard boxes all taped up may make it more obvious!.. as you're exporting from Denmark you can reclaim the Danish VAT back at the airport (sometimes in the store) but would need the place you buy from to be able to issue you right receipts/paperwork - lego house shop can, not sure about emp store.
feel free to message if want to talk any aspect through.
Just messaged for some further questions.
You might also want to consider that you may be lucky enough to receive a few sets or unique rewards on your tour that you’ll probably want to carry in your luggage for full peace of mind. You will of course receive an Inside Tour exclusive set so I’d recommend that takes priority in whatever hand luggage you bring - the size of these sets differs but in its own bag you should be able to place it carefully under the seat - to me that’s the only way of preventing any crushing in transit. Hide it in a bigger bag at the destination airport if you like. If you do well enough in the main Inside Tour building challenge (I’ll keep some aspects secret for you to discover) you could win a unique Lego trophy. I actually brought a roll of bubble wrap so my trophy was safe in my hand luggage - I felt sorry for someone else whose trophy contained hundreds of 1x1 round plates though!
Lego released so many large sets in recent years. I am hoping to get some of them there depend on their availability. However, based on the dimention, it seems the box is just about the same size as one Titanic set.
There are four sets currently available in the LEGO House store that are exclusive as well as keychains, etc.
