LEGO seems to be on a roll with its recent reveals of gift-with-purchase or GWP sets. And this time, LEGO has revealed another one that fans of the classic Bionicle theme will be glad to have. The LEGO Bionicle Tahu and Takua (40581) has been listed and officially revealed at LEGO.com and is said to be available as a promotional set from January 27 to February 9, 2023.
Tagged as an 18+ set, this LEGO Bionicle Tahu and Takua (40581) promotional set intends to appeal to adult LEGO fans of the classic theme. Coming in at 219 pieces, the set is valued at $16.99 and features two of the theme’s iconic characters. LEGO is yet to announce the purchase price point for this promo. But if we compare this to another classic promotional released recently, like the LEGO Icons Blacktron Cruiser, for example, we can assume that the upcoming Bionicle-inspired GWP will somewhat require a qualifying LEGO purchase between $100 or so.
For now, let’s take a look at what to expect from this promotional set. Check out its official images and product description below. I’ll update this post once more info comes in.
