Here’s another piece of exciting news for LEGO fans worldwide. A LEGO Certified Store in Thailand has recently unveiled two exclusive LEGO October GWP (Gift-With-Purchase) sets for this year.

LEGO October GWP 2023 Promotional Sets
LEGO Creator Scary Pirate Island (40597)
The LEGO Thailand certified store has just released its LEGO Store Calendar for October. And with it comes the reveal of two exciting freebies. The LEGO Creator Scary Pirate Island (40597) is a pretty neat tie-in to the LEGO Icons El Dorado Fortress (10320), with plenty of spooky elements just in time for Halloween.
This LEGO October GWP promises to be a valuable addition to any LEGO collection that celebrates one of the most nostalgic LEGO themes around. It clocks in at 214 pieces featuring a pirate minifigure aboard a mini-raft, and a scary-looking island filled with treasures and Halloween-themed elements.
- Treasure Galore: Explore a rocky outcrop teeming with hidden treasures waiting to be discovered.
- Outpost Adventure: Build a vibrant red and black outpost that adds character to your LEGO world.
- Raft Exploration: Assemble a raft to transport your minifigures to and from the island, adding depth to your adventures.
This exciting LEGO October GWP set will be available for purchase between October 13 to 22 for 3,500 THB in Thailand, approximately $90 USD. While the minimum spending requirements for other regions remain unconfirmed, it is safe to assume they will align with this ballpark figure and share the same availability dates.
LEGO Disney Mini Steamboat Willie (40569)
For LEGO enthusiasts with a penchant for all things Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel, this next LEGO October GWP is a must-have addition to your collection. The charming LEGO Disney Mini Steamboat Willie (40569) set pays homage to the 1928 animated classic, Steamboat Willie, featuring a monochromatic brick-built boat and an adorable Mickey Mouse minifigure.
I love the fact that LEGO opted to release a chibi version of its larger cousin the LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie (21317) in 2019. The set also features the exclusive vintage Mickey Mouse minifigure that is slightly different from the original one released in 2019 because of its black hat and slightly darker torso. If you missed out on grabbing this vintage Mickey Mouse minifigure back then, then now is the best time to add this to your collection.
- Classic Appeal: Relive the magic of Steamboat Willie with this delightful LEGO October GWP.
- Black and White Aesthetic: Embrace the vintage charm of black and white bricks that capture the essence of the original cartoon.
- Iconic Minifigure: Display a faithful recreation of the classic Mickey Mouse, reminiscent of his debut in the world of animation.
This exclusive LEGO October GWP 2023 set will be obtainable from October 23 to 31. However, it’s worth noting that it has a higher minimum spend of 5,000 THB (approximately $135 USD), and this offer is exclusively available to LEGO Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel sets.
And speaking about this GWP’s qualifying purchases, and if you’re looking forward to bagging this promotional, then you may want to consider some of the best LEGO sets under the abovementioned themes. You may want to include the LEGO Marvel Black Panther Bust (76215) which is now at 40% over at LEGO.com. There’s also the LEGO Star Wars Coruscant Gunship (75354) if you’re a Star Wars Clone Wars fan. And for Disney fans, the timeless LEGO Disney Castle (43222) is something that you don’t want to miss as well.
Global Availability of these LEGO October GWP 2023 Promotional Sets
While minimum spending requirements for regions outside of Thailand are yet to be confirmed, the release dates will be consistent worldwide. As these highly anticipated GWPs draw near, we can expect further details regarding these enticing free gifts to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
LEGO fans and collectors have much to look forward to this October with the introduction of these two remarkable GWP sets.
