LEGO Officially Reveals Selected LEGO City and Creator Set Variants

Last week, we reported on a subtle addition to the functionality of the LEGO Shop@Home webpage interface. A color selection option was implemented on two of its products: the LEGO Creator sets Expert Fiat 500 (10271) and 3-in-1 Mighty Dinosaurs (31058). This hinted that these two sets, and perhaps many others, could have set variants produced.

At the time of that report, the color options for the above-mentioned LEGO Creator sets were only their originals. Nearly a week later, LEGO itself has made an official announcement of this feature. Along with that comes the reveal of the first alternative colors.

The LEGO Group finally shed light on the variant color option for selected sets on its home shopping portal, describing it as a limited-time pilot project. Here’s their official statement:

The LEGO Group is running a pilot with a small number of products to gain a deeper understanding of what our fans want from our portfolio and where they prefer to shop for new or unique products.

The pilot includes variations of some of our existing products, so we can find out more about the colors and sizes of sets that fans of all ages want to see more of in our portfolio.

It certainly sounds like good news, and if you’re wondering about the catch then here it is. Most of these set color variants will be available only in the UK and Ireland. This is via their regional LEGO Shop@Home, physical stores, and third-party retailers. The variations on selected LEGO sets will only be available in these areas until November 30, or while supplies last. The LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500 recolor is the sole exception. LEGO Shop@Home UK can ship this one internationally.

So far, LEGO has marked four sets for variants. The first two are, as already stated, the aforementioned LEGO Creator sets. LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500 (10271) has an additional blue color scheme renumbered as set 77942 in addition to its original yellow.

The LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Mighty Dinosaurs (31058), aside from green, now has brown (77940) and blue (77941) recolored versions.

The other two sets with variants are from LEGO City, but as re-scales of an earlier retired set the LEGO City Fire Station (60110) from 2016,  and not exactly recolors. These are the LEGO City Fire Station Starter (77943) and the larger LEGO City Fire Station Headquarters (77944).

Set Variants

Here’s hoping the pilot test for this thing in the UK takes off. Maybe then LEGO will make these set variants available internationally, and with more to follow.

LEGO Creator Sets Now Offered in Multiple Color Variations

In case you haven’t noticed yet, LEGO Shop@Home has been recently updated to now include a new functionality on certain of its product pages, particularly applied to some LEGO Creator sets as of this posting.

As pointed out by Stone Wars, the product pages for LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500 (10271) and LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Mighty Dinosaurs (31058) have been updated to include what looks like to be a color selection function. For now, it seems that LEGO has not yet fine-tuned this page function since we only have a static selection bubble that shows the original color of the set. One can say that this might be experimental as of the moment, and a sort of foreshadowing of what LEGO has to offer for the coming weeks. If I’m not mistaken, this is the very first time that I’ve seen LEGO pulled out an offer like this, providing multiple color variations for a set. The prospect is exciting actually and I would like to see certain LEGO sets offered in other color schemes as well.

LEGO has added what looks like to be color selection options on these LEGO Creator product pages over at LEGO Shop@Home.

Word on brick street is that this recent development may actually become a possibility, with LEGO studying the feasibility and appeal of having several color options of its sets. The capability of choosing a differently-colored set is obviously not practical for all of LEGO’s set offerings, and seeing that they opted for LEGO Creator sets to jumpstart this feature is a good place to start. There were some speculations also that these color options might extend to upcoming LEGO City sets as well, including the still-to-be-released LEGO City Fire Station Starter Set (77943) and Fire Station Headquarters (77944).

Whatever is the case, it is quite certain that LEGO is now prepping up its online shopping portal and is now paving a way for a new and unique customer experience with this color selection capabilities. I guess we can see more developments in the coming weeks, or once September sets in. I’ll keep you posted on this. In the meantime, be sure to check out some of the newer LEGO Creator Expert sets such as the now-available Volkswagen T2 Camper Van (10279) and the upcoming Pickup Truck (10290). Who knows, we might get recolored versions of these sets as well. We just have to wait and see.

Check Out This List of Retiring LEGO Sets For H1 2021

As LEGO began to roll out its wave of new sets this 2nd half of 2021, it is also expected that the company will begin clearing out from its shelves (both from its physical stores and online) several of its previous sets that are expected to reach its end of life very soon. Retiring LEGO sets are almost always of particular interest to the LEGO fan community, considering that most of us still have that one set that we are looking forward to ticking out from our LEGO must-have bucket list. And recently, Stone Wars have released a very comprehensive list of all the retiring LEGO sets that are expected to quietly exit or may have exited already, from LEGO stores and online, during the 1st half of this year.

The list of these retiring LEGO sets for H1 2021 is presented here.  In case you’re interested, you may click on the following LEGO Shop@Home affiliate links below to check out their current availability. Some of these sets may be temporarily out of stock or tagged as already sold out as I’ve checked a while ago as of this posting. Nevertheless, it is still helpful to check if your expected LEGO set is still included in this listing.

Just a disclaimer though – like previously retired LEGO sets, this list is not 100% accurate considering how fast these retiring LEGO sets might sell out. So I encourage you to do a quick search over at LEGO Shop@Home. A huge thanks to Stone Wars once again for sharing and verifying this list.

Revealed by Netherlands-based toy store Brickshop.eu, take a look at these 5 upcoming sets that take inspiration from the LEGO Space and Castle themes.

LEGO seems intentional in providing more and more LEGO sets that cater not just to the young, budding LEGO fan, but also to those that are looking forward to seeing their childhood favorites come back again.
