LEGO leaking something themselves? Impossible! But also true.
The LEGO Australia webstore has listed the upcoming Gift With Purchase (GWP) including a few photos and all the details about the upcoming “Tribute to Galileo Galilei” set from LEGO Ideas.
The set is listed as a AU $34.99 value, although as a GWP you won’t be able to purchase the set directly – but only by reaching an as-yet-unknown purchase threshold. The set also isn’t listed on the US, Canadian or UK sites yet.
The set is appropriately sized as a GWP with only 307 pieces including the nameplate and the Galileo minifigure. It also includes a couple of his iconic inventions.
So, when can you get this GWP? Given it’s on the Australian retail site now, it makes sense for it to appear in November but it could be a December holiday offering.
