Some LEGO fan websites spotted this piece of news several days ago, and I find it interesting to take note of them here on our blog site. LEGO Shop@Home in Europe has updated their listing to now include a pair of LEGO Xtra Tape accessories to jazz up your LEGO City builds.
The LEGO Xtra Tape may seem to be too simplistic (well, after all, it’s tape) – but looking at how it is functioned to provide texture to any builds, plus the additional LEGO pieces that go with them, I wouldn’t mind purchasing them for $7.99. Each of these LEGO Xtra Tape accessories measures at 15 meters in length, and comes in two variants: the Road Tape (854048) and the Water Tape (854065), both of which come with a few LEGO decorative pieces that can accentuate your next LEGO City build or underwater adventure.
These accessories are not yet available at LEGO Shop@Home in the US as of this posting, but we can expect this to go live starting June 1 together alongside upcoming LEGO summer 2020 sets such as those from the LEGO Friends, Marvel, and Brick Sketches themes to name a few.
Read on for the product descriptions of these LEGO Xtra Tape accessories to know more about these offerings.
