"As a set, this is fine, not amazing; but satisfactory. As others and the online community are saying: this is the coffin for a tremendous letdown. Never again will us AFOL be fooled into buying in early.
At month 12 of 12 in 2018, we were supposed to be seeing a FULL YEAR of these promised promos, I'm sure you could see how many of us are feeling left out or deceived. Where are the "elite" and "special" etc Black VIP card benefits and promos? The ones I've seen have been mediocre, akin to the rest of regular VIP benefits.
"This is a truly unique set and your purchase of the set does entitle you to receive the collectible LEGO® Star Wars™ VIP card.
This card will also entitle the VIP member to a FULL YEAR of special LEGO Star Wars content and promotions. LEGO VIP members who have this card will become part of a Star Wars elite tier that is eligible for special content and promotions throughout 2018."
I hope there can be some trust gained back by LEGO to us loyal Star Wars fans who put down the $800 in 2017 with promises abound for the coming year. Emphasis on FULL YEAR, we're at like 1 or 2 out of 12. Let's make it right with the start of 2020 LEGO, what do you say?"
