Wow, what a way to quickly negate any valid points you may have previously made in this thread.

LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS coming off.

So everyone buys 1/mo X 24 mo X 10,000 members .. Yeah that sounds like a great plan for the set to appreciate ...

Is everyone who purchased the Porsche set on 01 June, and had a back order getting a GC?

Edited by Deadfraggle
Received my GC today as well. Best part? I missed the LEGO email, so I didn't even know this was on its way.

Nop - anyone else in the UK got a gift card ? or was this just a US offer.

 

Nope, under TLG´s fair trade system, Europeans (and British) get all the crumpled US boxes and a 1:1 euro /USD price point.

Interesting tidbit from that Top Gear article:

Porsche even vetoed the inclusion of the GT3’s rearsteer

Fascinating. Maybe they were concerned about LEGO giving away something proprietary about how it was implemented mechanically.

just curious, why it took so long for LEGO to restock the GT3 at SAH? Something wrong with their production line?

They had an issue with the packaging, the first version had too much of play between the massive book and the different boxes, it would crush them during shipping. They sold that version in stores but had to redo the internal packaging for LEGO Shop at Home. The newer version has a cardboard insert so that the book is now completely snug against the boxes, and the book is in the lower left corner an not in the center any longer.
