ICYMI: Here’s How To Get Your LEGO Icons Blacktron Cruiser (40580)

LEGO Icons Blacktron Cruiser

In case you missed it, LEGO is running a promotional campaign to jumpstart the year. We learned that a familiar and highly popular LEGO Space subtheme is returning in 2023. And thankfully, we now know the details of how we can bring home the LEGO Icons Blacktron Cruiser (40580).


Starting this week and until January 14, we can have this improved and re-released version of a 1987 classic added to our LEGO shopping carts for a single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $190 or more.

Relaunch a 1980s space classic
Rediscover a classic LEGO® set from the 1980s with the LEGO Icons Blacktron Cruiser. A highly detailed redesign of the original 6894 set, it’s guaranteed to provide hours of enjoyment recreating a childhood memory for LEGO® fans. Receive this gift with LEGO® purchases over $190, valid 1/1/23-1/14/23 while supplies last.

Coming in at 356 pieces including a much-desired Blacktron Rogue minifigure, this is a gift-with-purchase set that is hard to give a pass. Its modular design is a great throwback to its original play features, plus the several new pieces and re-design give it a particular touch meant for an adult LEGO fan base who fondly remembers their original Blacktron sets.

Though the $190 promotional threshold may feel a bit steep on the wallet, there are plenty of excellent LEGO 2023 sets that you may want to consider investing in within this price range. For $190 you may consider having a couple or more of those newer LEGO City Stuntz sets, or some mech-inspired LEGO Monkie Kid sets such as the Monkey King Ultra Mech (80045) and Yellow Tusk Elephant (80043). And with almost 200 new LEGO 2023 sets now listed and available at LEGO.com, there’s something that will strike our fancy.

As of this posting the LEGO Icons Blacktron Cruiser still appears in my cart upon checkout over at LEGO.com, but bear in mind that this promotional set is only up until January 14 or while supplies last. This is also available at all LEGO stores until such time so you may want to check with your local LEGO store as well.
