    And another that was receiving the newsletter regularly (if a day late) and hasn't received either of the last two.

    Didn't get the newsletter this week. Almost always receive it instantly (i.e. same time as most others) on Friday evening. Relevant box is ticked on my store account page.

    About ship kits. Additional parts look too simple and flat. Whats the point to buy anything so mediocre ? We need something that looks better than additional lego parts.

  15. #15
    Still not received the newsletter, that I receive every Friday usually
