ROTS Lego Minis Promotions
« on: March 16, 2005, 02:39 PM »
From Galactic Hunter

Pretty cool deals.  No problems with the free TIE Interceptor and ARC fighter from TRU.  I have no idea what an Albertson's is (grocery store?  Target like store?).  If anyone can help me get the mini Jedi Starfighter from there, it would be much appreciated.  I'll pay for the groceries, you can keep them and just send me the Lego mini.

Let me know.

It's a grocery store out here, Mikey.  I'll see what I can do about nabbing you one.  (don't forget our date with those Entertainment Earth SA Clones, btw  ;))

Kind of wierd them throwing an OT ship into the mix here.  Remind me, but was the Tie Int one of the mini ships we got from Japan?  Can't recall now, but I think it may have been...

Just keep the mini ships coming, 'cause they're cool!  Glad to see they're getting revisited again, at least.  8)

Yep.  Looks exactly the same as the Kabaya set.  (I just got those Kabaya sets from Dale recently, so they're fresh in my mind).

Haven't forgotten about the clones, Matt.  Just remind me when they come in.

And let me know about the mini Jedi starfighter.

There's an Albertsons VERY close to my house, but I don't have one of those cards the add talked about. Anyone want to pick one up for me?

They all look great though. Hopefully they become available to buy at retail.

So I did an Albertson's store locator for ***** and giggles to see what I'd get.  Turns out Albertson's are named different in different parts of the country.  Makes sense, as an West coast store only exclusive wouldn't make much sense.
Might not need help on the E3 Jedi Starfighter after all, Matt.  I'll let you know if anything changes though.

I got that magazine in the mail today, and there is an ALTERNATE way to get the mini Jedi Starfighter. You need to order the Sneek Preview (Jedi Starfighter vs. Vulture Droid) set from Lego's online store. Then, you have to click a certain button (I forget which one) and enter a code, and you can get a FREE Mini JS.

PM me if you want more info.

I already bought the Vulture Droid / JSF.  I have no use for another.

Of course, I prefer Coke to Pepsi, so I'm wasting money there.  I like Fritos though.

The first of the promotions is out - the Mini TIE Interceptor (exact same model as the Kabaya set).  It comes in a baggie and my TRU had plenty in a bin near the ROTS display.  They all had a $4.99 price sticker on them, so you could trying buying one instead of spending $14.99 to get it.

Wonder if we'll get the TRU promotions up here.  I'd buy some Lego to get something free :P

Heading to TRU this week to get one. If they don't have any, I'll just order the Japanese set.

My Mini Jedi Starfighter is also on its way from Lego's website. ;D

I could get to an Albertsons in May, but I don't have one of their "Loyalty cards". Any idea if it costs to get one, then I can get the free LEGO set.

No, the cards are free.  You just ask for one at the checkout lane.

I live in central florida and I work at my local albertsons. They have the lego jedi starfighter promotion. And they are barely moving from the store display. Maybe you should e mail me so we can talk about you getting one.
