Parts appear in Bricks And Pieces BUT blank tiles appear... printed tiles aren't listed there. Seeing blank yellow, blue, br.yel green tiles. Would have really liked to have had more printed tiles but guessing they are stickers. 

Thanks for the pics from different angles

Brickset have done a review of this and shown that it's actually a polybag, such a let down. Would have been worth so much more in a nice box. I know there's a lot of small pieces, but surprises they'd put an over 200 piece set in a bag.

In the old world, when lego was viewed as being special/precious, this would have had some absolute potential.

Unfortunately, in the new world - it's likely to be viewed as just another plastic toy, in a bag, with a bunch of tiny plastic pieces, and stickers.

At least the polybag saves anal buyers whinging about box condition. Stickers are the bane of my LEGO life, we all hate them, why do it?

when they hit in the masses on eBay and people price cut each other, I will buy one for myself. otherwise I am waiting for the x2 VIP  'til Nov for the Nutcrackers...

looks cool but the manager guy needs a big hammer for banning all those nasty QFLL for completeness.

Is this the highest buy in at $125 for a GWP? I can't recall anything even being $100. 

i would have to imagine the customers were extremely high when buying in at that price though its partly subjective as to being "the highest".  :P

i have sold the new opening store set for 150+ and this is similar. once it hits general availability though this price will drop substantially.

It doesn't seem to expensive on eBay at present and it's not even in true supply freeflow yet 

if you can pick it up for $50 now on eBay that price will fall later this week and the week after drastically.

I would agree with this strategy for myself, but I'm worried that the two winter vignette sets won't make it until then.

First promo in a long time that i actually want for personal collection. C'mon Lego get us a modular building Lego store :D 

The silly VIP... wall/card? section could have been more parts to use towards the store-front, but oh well.

Times sure have changed... I just picked up my seasonal sets and a Belle to qualify for this promo. Looks like I'm the only one hitting 2x VIP at midnight 

Right there with ya...personal record for Freebies...spent $127, double points and five freebies!  Nothing too special (VIP excluded), but free is free!!!

eBay will be flooded by the time it’s delivered anyway.

Don't think so, the buy in is too high on this one. If this was the standard €55/€60 buy in, then I'd put loads of small orders in and end up with a good few of them. Now, unless the Apollo comes back into set, I'm not likely to buy anything.
