LEGO is now warming up for its annual Black Friday deals with the official reveal of the new seasonal LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) set. LEGO Shop@Home has been updated to now include its holiday-inspired LEGO VIP freebie that honors the legacy of the master storyteller in the person of Charles Dickens. Check out the images below.
LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410)
333 pieces | valued at $22.99 | to be given away for free to LEGO VIP members from November 21-22, 2020 with a qualifying purchase, and while supplies last.
Coming in at 333 pieces, this set is scheduled to be offered to all LEGO VIP members that will make their next LEGO purchase during the abovementioned weekend, both online and in LEGO brand stores. For a single receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $150 and above, you’ll have this freebie automatically added to your cart. Additionally, you’ll get double LEGO VIP points for your purchases during these dates as well.
As a fan of seasonal brick-built vignettes such as 2018’s LEGO Christmas Gift Box (40292), I love the concept of these seemingly 2-in-1 builds that also doubles as a popular holiday symbol. The build itself depicts the author’s famous novel A Christmas Carol and features three minifigures: Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchet, and Ebenezer Scrooge. As Brickset’s review has pointed out, it seems that LEGO has taken an extra mile in offering these minifigures in a promotional item. We have a new printed minifig face used for Mr. Scrooge, while the printed torso used for Bob is a relatively new one. Being a freebie as it is, and though as much as I would prefer that printed parts were used for the book’s title and decorations, I guess I have no qualms over the set’s abundance of stickers.
Again if you want to bag this VIP promotional LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) considering that its availability is very much limited, be sure to schedule your next LEGO purchase from November 21-22. I’ll be updating this post once the LEGO Customer Service portal has uploaded the building instructions for this set.
