*sigh* I wish they had promotions like that here in the US.... We might get lucky with these on Halloween, so I still have hope.

Yeah, really lucky Brits. Those promos are really a good way to get Buzz and Woody, but if you already have them, what's the use right?

Free pieces, and you could sell the figs for at least $4 each.

Tescos in the UK are also doing a number of toy story promos if you collect some vouchers from their kids fruit range. See here:

Excellent, sadly I'm at work but I can see what my lunch time will be spent doing next weekend!

Though on reflection I do think that Buzz's ship looks inferior to the LGM one.

Dammit. I really love polybags and these actually look pretty good.

If anyone happens to find a way to secure some extras of these (especially all 4, but any combination and possibly duplicates of 30070 and 30071) and wants to do a kind deed... send me a message, please. :wink:

Please? :wub:

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Absolutely fantastic news! I don't have any of the Toy Story sets, so this is a great chance for me to get the 2 main figures.

Roll on Saturday!

True! I haven't actually bought a newspaper with a Lego promotion before...
The Woody promo has some common but useful pieces that might be of some worth. I'm always in need of cups...

Could someone please pick some up for me too? I'd be interested in one or two Woody promos and three or four Buzz ones. I have some horses, Western figs, and other stuff to trade for them. Just shoot me a PM to let me know what you want.

It's unfortunate that Buzz is on the Sunday, when the price of the newspaper doubles. I'll probably get more of Woody for that reason, but that's fine by me, I need all those accessories more than the bricks Buzz has. I don't own a single green snake yet, and I've only three of those flame parts.

I've no idea what the army jeep will be available through, if anything. Aside from the Tesco promotion, I've only ever got promo sets through the Mirror, and it ain't through them.

I got my promo set this morning. 65p for the Mirror and £1.50 for a bus ticket, not a bad deal at all!

I got a rake of them too. I was extremely pleased to find that each promo comes with a spare flame piece. That's the piece I needed most, so now I have twice as many as I'd expected!

It also has a spare black clip piece, but I have hundreds of those anyway.

if people would like these promos and can't get them give me a PM as I have 5 buzz's and 4 woody's, the will be a small charge on £2 plus postage each but I think that is reasonable as the paper here is scotland is £1.50

:hmpf_bad:  I missed them. I went to the shops and they had run out. Very annoying.

If there was no such thing as science; you'd be right.
