Double VIP 03/16-03/31/18 USA

This week at Monthly Mini Build, a LEGO Store Employee advertised Double VIP coming to USA stores 03/16-03/31/2018... (was told valid at Shop@Home too...) It has not been on any calendars but they were told to announce and promote... Overlaps with Free Bunny MiniFigure Promo... Not sure about Canada...

Re: Target Holiday Polybags

So buying 8 or 9 of these is acceptable to build a custom Santa Sleigh with Reindeer?

Re: Bricks - Issue #16 Now Released

you can find Blocks magazine at most Barnes and Noble Stores...

Had to order Bricks from UK... Subscriptions are cheaper now to USA due to favorable exchange rate post-Brexit so it might be worth checking out a subscription... yes it is still expensive but it is a quality product IMO...

Re: Feedback/information on Lego Club Meetings

Last meeting on 8/20 was a big let down...

'C' Team was on duty that day and had little interaction with the kids. Basically 'Here is your poly bag and box, go build...'

No goody bag given out nor 100 VIP point coupon...

Re: Feedback/information on Lego Club Meetings

Been to a couple... (Another one tomorrow 8/20...) Mostly the same format... The 100 bonus VIP coupons have been given out about half the time. I'm not sure if they simply forgot other times or if it is up to manager. Goodie bag is ok and the daughter always enjoys access to entire pick-a-brick wall...

Re: Feedback/information on Lego Club Meetings

Anyone receive the 100 VIP points coupon at any of the 2016 meetings? In January they said they weren't doing it that month due to change in POS system (offered free mini figure as replacement) but we haven't received one in February or March. I keep forgetting to ask an employee about it...

Bricks Magazine in the USA?

Has anyone found a source for Bricks Magazine in the USA? I know Blocks has been carried by Barnes & Noble for a while (I actually buy it there each month- cheaper than 1yr subscription...).

I've bought a couple issues a la carte but that gets rather expensive...

Re: LEGO Brand Retail Store: FREE 2016 LEGO Calendar w/$75 P

Our store was handing out stickers to place over December page because of a misprint... Hadn't seen this reported on this or any other LEGO forum.

Re: LEGO VIP Day is on Saturday, November 21st!

Thinking the calendar is an in-store exclusive, while 2X Points & Gingerbread House will be offered in-store and online starting at 12pm EST.

Got mine last night too... Interesting how the postcard indicates a 1000 unit production while the contest stated 750 units...

Re: October 2015 MMMB Registration Date

I didn't around to registering until mid-Afternoon and one local store was completely filled and the other had limited slots left on day 2. Do they normally go this fast?

Re: 5004590 DC LEGO Super Heroes Bat-Pod Set Promotion Start

Just got an email from FedEx with tracking for a 3lbs box from LEGO. Only outstanding order I have right now is for Tower of Orthanc so this must be my BatPod. Wednesday delivery expected... USA winner in Texas...
