Last week, we reported on a rumor that was making rounds across the LEGO fan community that the next LEGO Ideas set may already be on its way towards LEGO brand stores and at LEGO Shop@Home anytime soon. And to make it even more special, the rumored release of the LEGO Ideas Medieval Blacksmith in January 2021, will be accompanied by the next gift-with-purchase (GWP) set coming from the fan-inspired theme. And from the looks of it, the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) is all poised to be the initial GWP set of 2021. Since we don’t have any better images as of the moment, I guess we just have to settle for this one. I’ll update this post once LEGO releases their official images.
According to Promobricks, the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car will be added to your LEGO shopping cart automatically for every single-receipt qualifying purchase of any LEGO products worth 85 euros or more via LEGO Shop@Home and at LEGO brand stores. The promo may last until the middle of January 2021 or while supplies last.
If you recall, the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car emerged as the overall winner in the LEGO Ideas Build a Vintage Car building contest held in the latter part of 2019, earning more than 1,400 LEGO fan votes among other entries. This upcoming freebie is based on the creation of LEGO fan Versteinert and his Aedelsten Deluxe MOC. There’s not much of a difference from the fan version to that of the final LEGO Ideas version, save for some minor changes in the front of the car and details on the minifigure couple included with the set.
We haven’t heard anything yet from LEGO US regarding this next promotional freebie, but I can safely guess that more details (and even perhaps a better, closer look) about the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) may appear on the copy of the January 2021 LEGO Store Calendar which will be uploaded to LEGO servers anytime soon. Stay tuned for more updates.
