I guess there is no disagreeing on the fact that the now released LEGO Store May Calendar is jam packed with promos and announcements that LEGO fans will closely watch for. Aside from the reveal of a new pair of LEGO BrickHeadz and a buildable Porg, we now have a teaser of sorts for not just one, but two exclusive direct-to-consumer (D2C) sets.
If you recall earlier last month, LEGO has revealed that the initially planned release date of August for the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron (42083) has been eventually advanced in June. Additionally, LEGO’s presence in the Geneva Auto Show 2018 further suggested that the release date could be as early as May as you can see from the image below courtesy of Zusammengebaut.
Now given all these info, it’s not difficult to predict that the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron is now all set up to be our next exclusive, early VIP release next month. The 3,599-piece set is the second model to follow from Technic’s Ultimate subtheme ahead of the equally impressive Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056). We managed to have a glimpse of how the set will look, and all I can say is that it’s predominantly blue and black color scheme and curvatures are a sight to behold. The back side of the build is bespeaks of the technical complexity of the actual Chiron, with the classy inclusion of an exclusive, printed Chiron and Bugatti logo pieces. Since the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron is believed to be available for early VIP access next month, it can be expected that official images of the set will be available anytime soon this April.
Now, the LEGO Store May Calendar mentions another exclusive D2C set which will be released alongside the LEGO Technic Chiron. Some LEGO fan sites predict this to be another LEGO Creator Expert set (31084), the rumored LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043), or another never-before-seen Jurassic Park commemorative set. In any case, expect that these exclusive D2C sets will eventually revealed anytime soon this April.
