After seeing the largest LEGO Ideas set to date being sold at LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Texas, it looks like some LEGO employees were caught in another slip-up when the LEGO Ideas Treehouse (21318) was spotted being sold at the San Diego Comic-Con last week. Though LEGO promptly took action by removing the sets from their booth, a spokesman from the company disclosed that they were not that quick enough to prevent 5 to 10 fortunate SDCC attendees in making those highly coveted purchases. If you were looking forward to having this set but were not that lucky enough to catch these opportunities, then fret not since it might just be a matter of time before this set arrives in stores. In fact, LEGO has just released a fun and creative LEGO Ideas Treehouse (21318) teaser trailer that gives us a hint of what to expect from this set.
The LEGO Ideas Treehouse (21318) comes in at 3,036 pieces making it the largest LEGO Ideas set to be recently offered and is expected to retail for $200 USD. Staying true to its promise of promoting renewable materials in its building sets, LEGO has included tons of new LEGO plant and botanical pieces made from these sustainable materials. The video above also reveals some of the portions of the set, though you can have a better look at the set’s box art from our separate report.
The embargo for the LEGO Ideas Treehouse is expected to be lifted soon, with a VIP release date slated towards the end of this month and a general public release sometime in August. Be sure to keep tabs here at The Brick Show for the Treehouse’s official press release and images which will be out soon.
