Those ordering LEGO Technic 42098 Car Transporter (review) from shop.LEGO.com will earn double VIP points for a limited time. That means instead of getting the usual rate of ‘LEGO cashback’, fans will get twice as much.
42098 Car Transporter, released yesterday, uses a massive 2,493 pieces to build a car transporter that measures an incredible 86cm long. A car is also included, so that the main build has something to transport. The alternate model that can be built with these bricks is the LEGO Technic Truck and Show Cars model.
Here is the official product description:
This authentic replica model comes with a host of realistic features and functions for hours of play and design exploration. You can raise and lower the car decks and rear ramp for seamless navigation to the upper and lower levels, lock vehicles into position for safe transportation, and tilt the driver’s cab to access a detailed V6 engine with moving pistons. This 2,493-piece building set also includes a blue car with working steering and V8 piston engine and is compatible in scale with the 42093 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (sold separately). It comes with a classic red, gray and black color scheme with stickers for additional detailing.
A new version of the LEGO VIP scheme launched recently, and with the possibility of random rewards arriving at any moment, fans will want plenty of VIP points in the back just in case.
