Okay so if you follow my original post HERE, I talked about how I was going to wait on getting the LEGO Ideas Ghostbuster Ecto-1 10274 set.
When Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (see reviews HERE) was announced, leading up to it’s release date, the above poster was the gift with purchase. Nothing wrong with the poster, but it wasn’t exciting for me. So when the 2x VIP points appeared along with the below Gift with purchases, I was really holding out!
Throughout the week, I would check my wishlist on LEGO.ca and see the availability of Ecto-1. Up until Thursday, it was listed as available. But then late Thursday night, it was listed as Back-order. The set won’t be shipping until Dec 7th. I really worried, but alas, at midnight Saturday morning, I was able to put in my order.
Now you might be wondering, why did I order LEGO Road Worker ($4.99 item). The answer is because my Ecto-1 is on backorder. It turns out that if I only order Ecto-1, my GWPs would not ship until Ecto-1 ships. And if we wait until Dec. 7th, the likelihood of the two GWP being available might be pretty bad. Reading online, this tip also worked out for me.
So in the end, it all worked out. As you can see, the Road Worker was shipped, as were the other two GWPs. My other option would have been to pay a visit to my local mall, but I was afraid of going. With raising covid-19 cases in my area, I thought exercising patience was the better choice. Besides, I still have LEGO Batman 1989 Batwing to build!
