LEGO CITY 30365 Space Satellite

If you have a LEGO Store near you and you are used to it, know that you can currently and until next June 18 get the LEGO CITY polybag as a gift. 30365 Space Satellite from € 35 purchase of products from the LEGO CITY range.

The description of the offer does not mention the obligation to purchase products from the sub-range Space, it therefore applies in principle to all sets of the LEGO CITY range available on the shelves.

This offer is only valid in LEGO Stores, ie in the eight official stores spread over France. Even though I understand LEGO's strategy of attracting people to its stores, it's a shame for anyone who doesn't have access to an official store without having to take the highway and refuel.

In addition to the offers offered as part of the May the 4th operation (VIP Points x2, set 40333 Battle of Hoth and VIP poster offered, reduction on various LEGO Star Wars sets), LEGO will offer on May 3 from 16 p.m. to 00 p.m. a "creative workshop" in the LEGO Stores which will allow you to leave with the mini Tantive IV above.

It is a priori not necessary to register, you just have to go to the participating stores at the scheduled time and play elbows with the eBay sellers who will be sure to go there because it is free and that the bag of parts accompanied by its paper instructions is easily resold.

I did not find any age restriction to participate in this animation, but if you really look like AFOL just came to be offered something, do not hesitate to be accompanied by a two young people fans and to play the disinterested parent while the kids are winning.

For flawless credibility, add a few thoughts out loud like ".... Oh, these young Star Wars fans, they were so excited to participate in this animation that I dedicated myself to accompany them ..."Do not be ashamed, others will do as you and you can even exchange a knowing wink with other benevolent" parents ".

More seriously, I find this mini Tantive IV very successful. If you have the opportunity to go to a LEGO Store for this animation and you are not interested in this model more than that, you know where to find me.

Two other French LEGO Certified Stores will open in Toulouse and Rosny-sous-Bois

After Dijon, we now know that at least two other LEGO Certified Stores will soon open their doors in France.

The Percassi company, which manages these stores under a LEGO license, is in fact recruiting staff for these two stores.

The Toulouse store will be located in the Blagnac shopping center and the Rosny-sous-Bois store will take over the premises of the Rosny 2 shopping center.

As with the Dijon store, these spaces will have a different promotional calendar from that of the "official" LEGO Stores and the VIP card will not be accepted at the checkout. Percassi will probably launch a loyalty program specific to this network of stores.

If you want to try the adventure and become a store manager, you can apply here for the Blagnac store et there for that of Rosny-sous-Bois.
