Well, this one flew right off the shelf pretty fast. LEGO Shop@Home has briefly listed the LEGO Trains 40th Anniversary Set (40370) and it was just sold out in a matter of minutes.
If you recall, this set has been launched as a gift-with-purchase (GWP) set during the first quarter of the year as part of LEGO’s 40th-year celebration of its Trains theme. And for a very limited time – which I surmise depends on its availability – the LEGO Trains 40th Anniversary set was made available for sale for $19.99 over at LEGO Shop@Home in the US. And as expected, in just a matter of minutes, this commemorative set was instantly sold out.
There’s was no particular product description mentioned on its product page as of to date, except for the same details that were mentioned when it was posted as a promotional item back in March. LEGO has not released any statement yet if we will still see this set back for sale, or if it is really only a one-time deal.
For now, in case you still missed out on this collectible set, you may just want to try and build one of your own since LEGO has posted the set’s building instructions online. There are no unique pieces as it seems, save for the stickers and the exclusive train operator minifigure that comes with it. Here is the set’s parts inventory if in case you want to check if you have the necessary parts available.
