I hope some of you remember this email from July: "We know how much our LEGO® fans love their minifigures! That's why we're giving your little VIPs the chance to tell us their number one character from the LEGO Minifigure Series 1 - 3. Simply click on their preferred minifigure below to register your vote. We will then turn the most popular characters into an exclusive LEGO Minifigure set, only available to LEGO VIPs!* Choose wisely, you only get to vote once! Voting closes July 30." And in tiny text under the voting chart: "
- Voting closes on 30 July 2011 and is restricted to one vote per registered VIP Member. The top 5 minifigures will be announced in the November email newsletter and the set will be exclusively available to VIP Members to purchase in 2012, and at this time terms will be announced"
Well, I recently got the November newsletter and got this message:
Where are the results?! I sent an email to Customer Service, and got 2 results back:
Thanks for getting in touch with us regarding the LEGO Minifigure Series contest!
I'm sorry that you have not heard the results yet. I know that this is disappointing for you, as well as frustrating.
I can assure you that the winners will be announced shortly but you'll just have to sit on the edge of your seat and wait anxiously!
I have passed along that you're curious to know what the winners are but, unfortunately, we won't be able to release that information until it becomes available to us! Hang tight, [CENSORED]! You'll find out soon enough!
and Dear [CENSORED],
[CENSORED], thanks for getting in touch with us about the top 5 Minifigures promotion.
I do apologize that the results weren't featured in your November Newsletter. I will pass your comments along and see if we can release the results this month. We appreciate your patience and understanding. We never want to disappoint any our loyal LEGO fans.
What do you all think of this?
