Each member has a unique code that needs to be verified at checkout whether making a your purchase in a LEGO store, via their phone ordering service or through shop@home.
The second exclusive is an entry for a chance to win an 18 carat white gold R2-D2 minifigure, which comes with a certificate of authenticity and encapsulated in a protective plastic case. No purchase is necessary and holders of the black VIP card are automatically entered into the draw.
Long time followers of Rebelscum's LEGO Star Wars coverage will remember that LEGO revealed they had commissioned 10 silver, five platinum and a gold R2-D2. We have had a giveaway for two of the platinum ones already, and now the gold version is up for grabs. It will be interesting to see where the silver and remaining platinum ones end up.
