I really like the look of that collector box.
Good idea all around LEGO, though shame not coming to Australia.

You want one of each as well? Well, I'm already getting them for KimT and WhiteFang, I might as well help you as well.  :tongue:
The Mods will be internally grateful!  :tongue: I really don't want one. But could I get one if I wasn't a Mod Or are the Mods just special like that? Hope you guys enjoy your sets from ADHO15.

Oh, well: anyone else who may help other EU non-UK citizens out there?

PM me, thanks!  :tongue:  :thumbup:

I know. That was just a general comment in the same post.  :classic:

I wasn't showing any favouritism to the EB staff. I saw KimT ask, and then WhiteFang and ImperialShadows followed. I'll be buying about 8 newspapers tomorrow, so I think that's enough.  :tongue:

Plus, it can't hurt to get in the staff's good books.  :wink:  :grin:

Hmmm... I wonder will the Irish Daily Mirror be doing this in conjunction with Smyth's Toys like last time?

The sets will be available from tomorrow in Ireland also. Purchasers of the newspaper will need to bring the coupon to Smyths on the same day, each day as before. There is no mail-in offer unlike last time.

You have to go each day? I can't just go when it ends and collect them all together?  :oh3:

In that case, I probably won't be able to get them all for you three. You'll have to decide between you who I should get them for. I want one of each of the promos, and if it's only one per customer, the max I'll be able to get each day will be two or three. Sorry.  :sad:

Thanks. We can sort it out later, once you have them. No worries about it, I won't fight with KimT and Shadows for it.  :tongue:

A have not seen that information yet. Are you sure? The details still have not been released about it yet.

I would be very surprised if there is no mail order offer as then so many readers would miss out. Who has the time to go to the stores every day for a week!!
The whole offer is in the same format as last time with the sets, the box and stickers. That had a mail offer.

I think you might be wrong on this one Dfenz. I certainly hope you are. :classic:

If we get more offers like these you could even say it makes up for the high prices.

nothing on the mirror site about mail order but I 99% sure it will be an option

Going by the city theme promo they did, you could get the daily paper for 30p = 1 free set each day

Or you could collect all the tokens and mail in with cheque for (I think was around) £6.99 to cover fees which is where they make their £££

City promo was ELC and Woolworths (latter now extinct)

SW promo is WH Smith and Toysrus - these are not exactly 10 to the penny stores in the UK

(My nearest TRU is 90mins drive  :sceptic: , I have a WH Smith  :thumbup: , but its closed Sundays  :cry_sad: )

these dont look that great imo. The imperial one looks like something built from left over castle pieces and the clone walker looks just like a small version of the battle pack one. The only good one is the stap which is the only one thats a real vehicle. Its strange that they're only available in the UK at the moment

I have today's Daily Mirror. It says that each set must be picked up on the day it is released. For example, I can get today's Imperial Speeder Bike today at Toys'R'Us or WHSmith, but tomorrow I can only get the Clone Walker.

However, you can send five DIFFERENT vouchers with a cheque for 5.99 payable to 'MGN Ltd' to claim the six toys and the collector's box. The address will be printed next week. The closing date is Friday 25th September. Allow 28 days from the closing date for delivery.

Only one free LEGO item per customer.

The poster and stickers will be inside next Saturday and Sunday's papers.

Is that clear with everyone?  :classic:

You're alright. It's easier for me to just mail-in five coupons and get his whole order. Thanks anyway.

EDIT: 6 minutes too slow ^^

I'm going to try my luck today and see how many I can get. It feels mean towards all the little children who want one but i'm only doing it for fellow Eurobrickers who can't get to a store. I don't know what my local WHSmiths staff are like so here's hoping that they don't mind a bit of rule bending! Plus, my town is small enough that I might know one of them  :thumbup:
