Mark your calendars, the Ulysses Space Probe returns to the VIP Center at LEGO.com on May 17, 2022 at 9:00 am EST. You might recall, the set originally came out in conjunction with the release of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Much to the chagrin of AFOLs, the set vanished from the rewards center just as quickly as it appeared. Most fans missed out entirely on the opportunity. Additionally, the extremely limited run caused prices to skyrocket on the secondary market. Currently, a NIB Ulysses Space Probe goes for an average of $135 CAD on Bricklink. A used set is around $63 CAD. On eBay, the cheapest one I saw was $141 CAD, but they ranged to over $400!
Originally, the Ulysses Space Probe ran for 1,800 VIP points. While The LEGO® Group has not confirmed the same this time around, assume it will put you back the same amount. In an interesting move, The LEGO® Group announced it will block people who previously acquired the set from getting an additional copy. So, if you already have one, do not bog down the system and prevent others from getting through. After all, the second run of the Ulysses Space Probe is also finite. Those hoping to get the set will also be limited to one. Additionally, remember that you will need to make a purchase within 60 days of redeeming the offer in order to acquire your reward.
