    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Saw this article on thebirckfan website a couple of weeks ago. Apparently it was in an e-mail from LEGO. Not sure if that helps? Havent done it myself yet. Important update to your LEGO® VIP Program We’re introducing some changes that will make it easier for you to get discounts on LEGO® products using your VIP Points. You now no longer need to decide in advance how or where you want to use your discount. Any discount redeemed with VIP Points can be spent online, in store or by phone. We’re also looking to make the in-store VIP experience more secure. To earn or use your VIP Points, you’ll now need to provide your card number or email address for your account. Please make sure you bring your card or details with you, as store associates will no longer be able to access your account without that information. The email address used for this communication should be the one associated with your account. If you have any unused discounts from in-store or phone discount rewards that you’ve already redeemed in the Rewards Centre, we’ll credit your account with the relevant points value. Any LEGO.com discounts you redeemed will remain unchanged. Please contact our Costumer Service if you have any questions.

    Wizarding World 2022 - Rumors & Discussion

    Just a quick PSA before I race off to bed. Just stayed up in Australia to see if the Grand Staircase GWP went live and I can gladly confirm it did. Not sure the purchase limits on everything, but it was $209 AUD for the Grand Staircase, but I also got the little build your own hogwarts or whatever it is called and third GWP called childrens amusement park. Hopefully that all makes sense and is helpful. I'm tired and off to bed. Still up, waiting for something to finish scanning. Just checked, the mini hogwarts is with a $109 AUD spend and the Amusement park is with a $179 AUD purchase. So I bought Ministry of Magic and Carriage and Thestrals which put me just $3 over the spend limit here. Really hoping Grimmauld place isn't an exclusive somewhere and I can't find it discounted now. Really didn't know whether to get Grimmauld Place or Ministry of Magic. Bit of a gamble, we'll see how it plays out when they are finally released into the retail world. Also, obviously not the only way staying up... just noticed Grimmauld place is now out of stock here!

    Do we know what the global purchase requirements are for the GWP? Wondering what I might have to save to buy online here in Australia.

    They need the Young Hermione hair in Dark Orange. That'd probably be perfect.

    That's half of what I find so weird is how inconsistent they have been released. There were quite a few sets last year, then the advent calendar, then one set in January and not half the sets have it. Feels like it should be all or none this year. But the other thing that would have been nice for both kids and adults is some sort of knowledge as to how long these are going to keep coming for? Some people might not have spent more on Bricklink getting them if they new they were going to be inundated with more and for those that didn't manage to get them all probably would have felt a little more solace knowing that more were coming. I don't know... they whole way they've been released has just felt a bit off to me.

    Hope this works... thumbnail_Resized_20220613_135405 by Chris McKinley, on Flickr It's a little bit cramped because we still haven't moved in properly and my wife's city sets are all jammed in the shelf. Lol.

    I hadn't actually notice this until you said that. Thank you very much. You've save me $80 from an already expensive wave. It really doesn't have anything to get you excited about it does it? Worse than even fluffy encounter. Also, not sure if this has been discussed before, but what's the deal with the SAME chocolate frog cards coming back? Did LEGO expect people were going to sit around for the next couple of years waiting to complete their sets? Feels so random being drip fed these same chocolate frog cards. Would assume most people who were looking to complete a set would have chased after it immediately, not sat back with a wish and a prayer that LEGO would release them again a year later. What's your thoughts, was the same cards a welcome return to anyone? Or does it just feel useless? I suppose it could be worse, they could release a Harry/Voldemort duel standing on some grey bricks like the new Kenobi set!

    I still maintain for myself that the Hogwarts icons was a completely garbage idea and equally rubbish set. And the stupid has has locked me out of completing my golden figures collection. Well, unless I want to spend $120-$140 on 3 minifigures, but some of us have mouths to feed. Lol. Can't believe they're apparently doing it to Marvel now too. I mean kudos to those who liked it, but not everyone falls for it the minute they see a pretty picture. Lol. There were still a lot of people that thought it was a bad idea and after seeing it weren't going to buy it. Hogwarts express "sounds" better than Hogwarts icons. But most of us already have one that's already minifigure scale. Doubt many people are desperate for a bigger one just yet. Ohhh.... forgot.... Boooo LEGO, I don't like this idea! Also, random other thought.... I've just moved house and during that time purchased the parts to make the Griffindor Dormitory and then got the hospital wing set. Finally had the time to pull out all last years sets and excitedly put them all together so I could combine the new sets with all last years ones. There's definitely some cool details in some of the "scenes", but overall it just feels so ugly both front and back. I could only stand it for about a week and then I shoved it in a wardrobe and two weeks later I finally brought myself to take it apart again. I really hope they stop this whole modular idea soon, it's not doing the theme any favours in my opinion.

    I honestly hadn't actually realised that the baby blue was actually a new mould. I kept seeing it in photos and thought it was the normal baby dino mould.

    2010 City Advent Calendar: You need to buy the instructions on Rebrickable and then purchase all the parts yourself I believe.

    They're both cheaper and free shipping from Big W. I ordered mine this morning.

    Lol. All these people that can get to a LEGO store without going on a place or a 12 hour ferry ride!

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Not sure if you've googled to see if there's any stores that sell build a minifigure online, but here in Australia I was trying to track down the brick girl minifigure from BAM and found a LEGO franchisee type store (not official LEGO store), and found they had all the BAM exclusive minifigures from the last 3 years (minus two or three) all at the retail price. So I got the BAM Mrs Claus two months ago.
