LEGO has canceled the VIP promotion for the North American market for its upcoming Creator Expert vehicle, 10295 Porsche 911 Turbo & 911 Targa. The company says the change is due to shipping issues. The set goes on sale for LEGO VIP members this Tuesday, Feb. 16, before its wider release March 1, retailing for US $149.99 | CAN $199.99 | UK £119.99.
The new Porsche 911 kit was originally slated to ship with a “Porsche Owners Pack” for customers who purchased the set during the early VIP window. The Gift With Purchase would include a special pack of promotional materials, including a LEGO Porsche card wallet, four art prints, and a “Certificate of Awesomeness.” It appears the promotion will still be available in other markets, but it will not be offered to North American customers, leaving customers in North America to turn to resellers if they want these exclusive goodies.
