The LEGO.com VIP Reward Centre has added seven new prints featuring LEGO Creator Expert 10271 Fiat 500. They are available to fans who have accumulated points through the VIP scheme and are looking for something unique to ‘buy’ with them.
Last year, the LEGO Group changed the LEGO VIP scheme, so that as well as using the points towards buying new sets, fans could buy exclusive merchandise and selected sets, including retired exclusives, using the points directly.
The attractive 10271 Fiat 500 prints take classic adverts for the Italian car and incorporate the LEGO set into them. Unfortunately for those who like the look of them, they require 2,800 points – more than four times as many points as some of the LEGO Originals prints and almost £20 worth according to the vouchers – continuing a trend of making the value proposition on LEGO VIP rewards debatable.
10271 Fiat 500 launched in March, priced at £74.99 in the UK and $89.99 in the USA. It is the latest car in the annual series from the advanced building theme, offering a detailed model for adult fans.
