    Sweet, I didn't know that. This may change my entire strategy!

    If you are lucky, they'll offer double VIP and you'll earn 20! Just be aware it usually takes a couple of days to credit to your account so you won't be able to use the rewards the same day you earn them.

    In the US, you earn 1 VIP points for every $1 you spend (not including tax or shipping). So if you buy a $9.99 set, you earn 9.99 VIP points. Once you earn 100 points, you get a $5 reward. So basically, you get $5 for every $100 you spend. They expire in December, 2 years after you earn them. Every few months, Lego has offers of double or even the rare triple VIP points. though triple hasn't happened in a long time. That's usually when I rack up points on large sets like the modular buildings.

    I have a good amount of VIP points saved so I'm picking these all up on day 1 at the Lego store. Then I'll just buy the D2C Hogwarts when it's released for retail price and hopefully double VIP points. You're welcome!

    Okay are these being released July 1st or August 1st? I’ve seen both dates.

    Is that other minifig Seraphina Picquery?
  9. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I had a lot of issues with some of the colors they used for Lord of the Rings minifigs--particularly Aragorn--so I can relate to what deskp is saying.

    Wow, thanks so much for taking the time to answer all our questions!

    It is very cool the see the evolution of this set. This looks like a fantastic model that I'm really excited about. You did an excellent job with this. Is there any chance that Professor McGonagall will have both regular legs and the new dress piece? I'm sure you can't tell us but I have to try :)

    The hat was okay for it's time but I really started to loathe it when they used it for Gandalf. Gandalf deserved a new molded hat/hairpiece combo and he wound up being the most disappointing fig in the entire LOTR line (which I loved overall).
  13. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm sick of that old wizard hat. I would prefer either a new mold or just a bun hairpiece for McGonagall.
  14. Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm hoping so.

    Ahhhh. Great observation. I think you are correct! Well, come to think of it, wasn't that just a normal sized snake. And the description does say call it the Basilisk.
