Free exclusive Mini Hogwarts Express when you buy Diagon Alley from shop.LEGO.com but be in quick before they're all gone!
That's a pretty sweet little set!
Aw, what? I hope they sell this somewhere else. I don't want to buy Diagon Alley just for this. Don't get me wrong, I like Diagon Alley, but I don't have $150 laying around.
I like how they used the parts in the front, but not the rest. Kind of dumb.
That is adorable! No tender car or coaches though...: (
I want it so bad!!!!:D
But I already bought Diagon Alley:(
Kind of an ugly little design, but who complains about free lego? But those wheels!
Good, but would've been great with a tender. And some coaches would've made it magnificent.
It looks awful. I won't be buying another DA just for that!
The thing that puts me off about it is that rear cabin. (I think that's what it's called) It would probably be fine without that horrible SNOT.
Same, I already bought Diagon Alley! I wonder if they'll give it to people who bought Diagon Alley when it came out or much earlier if you ask them by phone. Anyway, for a set that's pretty much chronically on the U.S. bestseller list, I don't see why they need all these promotions. Double VIP points, extra points, free sets, etc., etc.
@Zacherano Promotions are probably what has kept it on the bestseller list...
Cute! But I lack in money. I'll buy it in 60 years, when I discover that old LEGO bin in my mansion and decide that I need more, then I'll buy DA on ebay for 1000.
@jarom_moroni - That's only one way of looking at it. There was very high anticipation for this set, the first Harry Potter Lego exclusive, and it sold out at first within just a couple of days of being released. I don't understand Lego's promotions for this particular model. I think they're wasting money that they would be receiving for this set anyway. I'm a big fan of this set, and I have noticed what's going on, so don't take me wrong here.
The general consensus seems to be that it's "cute". You guys sound like my sisters, who called a brown stud cute, even after I told them what it was used for in the Lego videogames.
@Legolas1Erm... I don't think brown studs are cute... Now blue studs. Those are cute. :P
^I don't really find studs cute at all.
Looks like it has race car rims :) Super fast train lol, kinda ugly, but good parts
They seem to be the same rims from the Cars sets.
I don;t care if it's "cute" or ugly, I want it, but I am not buying Diagon Alley for this, I just don't have the cash.
@LEGOLas1: Ha ha, I know, I was kidding.
I've already got Diagon Alley, and I don't rpopose to purchase a secnd set. but I do want it, like I want the two bublepack 30011 sets.
This deal is also good at all lego brand stores.
I actually bought diagon alley TWO DAYS AGO... how? HOW AM I THIS UNLUCKY :(
I called Lego since I gotten my set in January, they said they would not send me one cause I got the Ninjago keychain promotion, they can have the keychain back & give me the train instead.
^I would send back the keychain.
@finger2314: Do you stil have the receipt ? If so, you can:1: Take you receipt down to a Lego store, and ask if they will honour the promotion.2: If they say no, buy a second Diagon Alley and get the free model.3: Remove the second receipt from the bag, replace it with the first one and say: Hello, I'd like to return this Diagon Alley I bought two days ago, please.As the meerkat says: Simples
