    Haha, of course the Castle is the one I wanted. Oh well. At least I don't have to try and scramble for a preorder now, it's just the one that got away.

    Nice. Wonder if they could have done another 10,000 and sold out.

    Ditto. Ah well. There's plenty of other stuff to occupy my wallet.

    Nice! I may just pick up the Space Shuttle Discovery, after all.

    If you guys are looking at making some pickups during VIP double points, keep in mind the overlapping GWP schedule:

    July 12-14: Double VIP

    July 1-14: Free LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) with purchases of $85 or more, while supplies last.

    July 12-18: Free LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) with purchases of $150 or more, while supplies last. (Christmas in July apparently).

    Depending on what you're looking to buy, you could potentially triple-dip on promos if the adidas shoe is still available by July 12 (it still is right now).

    Reminder, July 12 "starts" at Midnight EST so that means this coming Sunday night at 9pm PST. If you want the shoe best you be doing it then.

    ALSO - if you are like me and got the LEGO Gold coin VIP code but haven't used it yet, keep in mind that expires around July 19 (60 days) so don't forget to use it!

    I was looking into this too and also saw this:
    Free LEGO Friends Emma’s Magical Box (30414) or LEGO City Skater (30568)
    Promo valid from July 16 to 25, 2021

    Promotional Archives - The Brick Show

    Maybe I can get some extra stuff too depending on how it goes. Not too interested in the shoe.

    And yet I just want to wait for the Ideas sailboat GWP. Perhaps I am foolish.

    But that won't overlap with Double VIP, just FYI.

    Yes

    The Lego website currently says the mini Adidas GWP runs through 7/20.

    Discovery's pretty neat, but Atlantis is better. ;)

    With all that goodies and the double points, might be time to get the Bonsai and a Speed Champions set (maybe the Bird of Paradise if it's avalible in Canada).

    As I do like the Bird of Paradise, too bad that Lego has not made a version of a Orchrid plant yet.

    Oh ok - they keep changing it. It was supposed to be 7/25, then the calendar came out and it said 7/14 which was the last I'd heard.

    I don't really care about the shoe myself but figure I can gift it to someone who does, or sell it later.
