Has anyone bothered yet to ask Customer Service if these will come to the US? :look:

They ran out of newspapers in my local branch so we had to run to saisbury's to pick one up. In the end we got two.

The tactic worked again! Get the things from Smiths! They don't collect the vouchers, so you can go back and get some more later! :thumbup:

Oh yeh, I beat you by two Mutley. :tongue:

Doh! This morning the crafty and devious sales assistant had obviously figured out the kind of antics we have been upto and made me cut out the coupons from my papers.  :sad:

Some of you guys are being pretty evil, there's a limited amount and kids want these things too.

I managed to get my Clone Walkers from WHSmith this morning, since they were closed yesterday, so I'm happy at least.  The Clone Walker is very cute, and I like the Tie Fighter, it's nice to see we're finally getting mini's over here again.

To quote myself, like the 'plural sheep' I am  :grin: :

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.

Just a wee note about this promotion (I posted under Matt Dawson's 30004 review)...

As I've come to read it it's one set per reader and the places I've visited interpret this as one reader = one newspaper purchase. If you should need some kind of explanation, say that you're picking them up for multiple people (as I actually am).
So, I also be self-quoting now! But not quite on same level as the plural-sheep-king ADHO! :laugh:

Um... Maybe a little late to ask now, but can someone please pick some up for me? :grin:  If so, I´ll pay the newspapers´price and the shipping. (I only want the sets, not the collector box, stickers or poster.)
If someone can do this for me, please PM me. I´d appreciate it very much. :sweet:
Thanks!^^

Oh, and if you could get multiple sets for the vouchers, its OK for me.  :grin:  :devil:  :wink:

My dad stopped by a WHSmith at lunchtime today, and they were out of today's freebies, but not newspapers... :wacko: Anyway, for the one paper he bought, the woman gave him two Imperial Speeder Bikes - it's worth asking around for surplus.

To the barricades!

My local WHSmith gives me random sets.  Monday I got Saturday's speeder, Tuesday i got Monday's Tie, today I got yesterdays STAP.  Got to keep the coupons!  

There was no way I was going to buy several copies of the Mirror :sick: though.

Lucky you. In Ireland its a euro for practically the same paper with a few Irish-specific front and back pages so no additional quality. Don't anyone ever complain about Lego exchange rates again!!

It should be 45p for a weekday Mirror, 65p for the Saturday one and £1.00 for the Sunday paper.

Your newsagents overcharging you if you had to pay 65p yesterday.  :grin:
