I grew up in Orlando. Space Shuttle was part of our culture. I watched Challenger blow up with my naked eye standing in the outdoor field of my school yard when I was in middle school. We would watch

Ulysses with plush Yoda and plush Grogu for extra cushioning! May the Force be with me.

When you add the redemption code to your cart, does it show up as an item? I tried but didn’t see anything aside from the sets I was buying.

thanks

Same for me.  Also, it appears you can take the free polybag and redeem a VIP gift in the same order.  When I put the VIP coin code in the payment VIP section it rejected it because it wasn't 12 characters.

I ended up talking to a CSR at Lego and getting my order and bonus put through. I also had to get the free poly bag shipped separately because they couldn’t add it with the VIP redemption. It was a challenge, but hey, I get a castle coin ;)

VIP points should just be a category at checkout. “Would you like to apply points towards the purchase?” coins and any other vip bonuses could just be added to your shopping bag and then points used at checkout if you so wished.

why there is a separate experience and the need to use vouchers is beyond me. Awful user experience in my opinion.

I believe that's the point...pun not intended

Once they changed to a point system  that is both hard to remember and hard to calculate easily it was a clear show of a strategy to add obstacles at every turn to discourage the typical buyer from ever using points (which will eventually expire)

Why do you guys want these coins? Seems like clutter & a waste of valuable points. Any chance these become valuable? I don't see it. 

I don't see it either.

To a point, they certainly have some value (certainly more than the value of VIP points).

Now, should they have value? probably not - But will they have value? yes

Even if I got the coin the box will end up somewhere obscure and I will have forgotten all about it

Fast forward couple of years...in the "What Did You Sell Thread", a BPer mentions selling his coin for $100...and by then I have long forgotten where I put the darn thing.

So even if this actually takes off...sadly, it's a lose lose for me.

I lost my Hasbro 501st Clone Trooper pack and had to refund $130...basically anything nonLEGO set doesn't "fit" my inventory system.  [yes, I know that's pretty lame...but please feel free to shame me further]

Coins?  Next you are going to tell me that LEGO sets are collectible.

No, that's just silly.  New LEGO based cryptocurrency...  If you collect all the coins you get a buy-in code.

So wait, I can give up my VIP points to get these coins and the case instead of actual lego, but I can only do it in 6 separate transactions? and the total equivalent cost will be ~$60 plus the cost of whatever I have to purchase in order to not pay shipping on each of these transactions? Lego really does have evil geniuses working for them... sign me up!

I can’t believe none of the 40 somethings on this thread have mentioned, mused or asked about the classic space coin. Space. Coin. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw someone buy a whole ice cream cake with a space coin at 31 flavors last night. 
 

How / when can I get my hands on that? Anyone? Bueller?
