Free LEGO VW campervan with orders over £50 @ Lego Stores

Found 2nd Sep 2013
Please note - NOT a real campervan. Man it would have got hot in here if it was.

Pic in first post: Looks like a lovely little kit for a freebie and I think its exclusive. I have never seen it before anyway, although it is not as nice as the actual VW van (£79.99). Could be worth something in the future if it never comes out I guess.
Available Online (free postage over £50 too) or lego stores.

Yeah maybe I should change the title...

cool,my son has the big one but after 4 hours building time,it sits nicely on the shelf out of reach. The small one would look nice next to it lol,and my son may even get a shot.

Got this one today , it was for me but my youngest has pinched it.

I know that felling. The problem is where to put them when they are finished. It's sacrilege to take them apart but I don't have enough shelves!

Why could this not have been on when I picked up set 41999 a few weeks ago. All I got as the freebee then was this

Agreed, thats why I mentioned it in op. One of my dream kits, just can't justify that much money.

Have you seen the prices for this on eBay?! ebay.co.uk/itm…4de

wish I'd waited couple weeks back - all I got was some crappy space man

very tempted to order my first architecture set, especially if i can offset at least £20 against the camper. any recommendations on architecture models?

although if you can flog the small one for £20, suddenly its a more affordable prospect

Damn it I got **** all after purchasing the BTTF Delorean and a large Friends kit instore in Legoland the other week, so if I hadn't bothered and ordered from the website I could have had a hot dog cart

oh so tempted to buy some lego to get this. looked on ebay and they are selling £16ish so would rather spend the money and get the kids some lego for xmas to get this........

just ordered some lego for the kids for xmas and got the campervan. via quidco you also get 4% and there is free shipping on orders over £50 so not too bad roll on its arrival very happy

Expect it to settle at £6-7 once everyone is listing them on ebay.

Architecture models are better bought off Amazon.

Nobody has yet mentioned their VIP scheme where you effectively get 5% off in VIP points. If you can wait until next month, Lego are offering a double VIP points promotion. That's when I'm going to buy dozens of large scale VW campers. The little models will be worth very little once the first wave has gone on eBay. Remember the STIGs selling for £20+ and now going for peanuts?

thx, will order some for Xmas, and out that Camper Van on ebay, to claw back some of the cost

I....I mean my son really needs this in his collection. Hopefully now that loads will be going out as freebies, the Ebay price will calm down a bit.

My boyfriend and I have a VW campervan so last christmas I bought him the standard size Lego Campervan - he absolutely loved it! I can't really warrant spending another £50 on lego just to get the mini as a freebie but a great freebie all the same!

Yea, I considered the same idea as I expect that this will turn into a money maker in a few years like 8880 is now. However, I decided to pick up the MK2 Crane 42009 and felt that I'd spent enough in 3 days on lego to not spend another £100+



Most people are not on here to make a profit. The thing with lego is it's a process to make a return on rarer or more difficult to get sets. Personally, I don't consider the stuff to be there to make me a profit but for me to enjoy. Take 41999 for example. The price sky rocketed after it came out, it will then drop down to a break even point and after a few years will be worth a fortune again when the parts are hard to source.

The same will apply with the Stig, when the initial excitement died down the price has plummeted but after the minifig stops being produced and readily available, it will once again rise in price. I also added this one to my collection as investing in something that will become valuable for me is not something I try to get rid of as soon as possible, I like to allow it to increase in value over time. In 10 years there wont be 300 different ebay sellers trying to shift the same minifig and hopefully if I decided to sell I'd be one of a few options to buy from.

Hmm what to get? I want this to go next to my big one. Thing is everything Lego is full price, things like the Sopwith Camel are often 25% off at Amazons. Maybe get a Delorean and something else.

I should also add that those complaining that they bought something and wish they'd waited, websites like Brickset announced this as an upcoming freebie a good while ago, always worth keeping an eye out for upcoming deals

Enjoy your megabloks.

Lego has always been expensive but it is fun to build and collect and goes up in value.
A great investment.
