WHSmith now selling LEGO polybags!!
Some massive news for you this morning for you, my contact has informed me that not only is their the polybag promotion starting this weekend but also WHSmith have now started selling LEGO Polybags priced at £2.99 and we have photo evidence to back this up. While I can’t confirm 100% if all stores will be selling polybags but I think it is safe to say all the larger stores will be selling them.
Currently they will be selling the following sets 30230-1: Mini Mech, 30231-1: Space Insectoid, 30221-1: Fire Car, 30150-1: Racing Car, 30224-1: Ride on Lawn Mower, 30225-1: Coast Guard Seaplane, 30242-1: Republic Frigate, 30254-1: Razcal’s Double-Crosser. I’m not sure what 30321 is but the rest besides 30224 are all new this years. I will be heading to my local store later to see if they are in the Sheffield stores.
This is fantastic news for UK AFOL’s as we can now get hold of polybags that would have cost us more to get hold of via Bricklink, eBay etc. some of these sets have not been seen in the wild any where in world.
Update – it’s not 30321 it’s 30231 which is a Galaxy Squad Space Insectoid Mini Build. It’s also worth noting they are listed by WHSmith as LEGO Mini Builds S1 (series 1) which would suggest other polybags or Mini Builds could be released in this way in the future.
