LEGO Taco Stand GWP Set Available in LEGO Stores in Mexico

LEGO Mexico unveils a collectible gift-with-purchase (GWP) set inspired by the iconic taco stand, available exclusively in LEGO Stores across Mexico. LEGO fans in Mexico are in for a treat as the LEGO Group’s Mexican division introduces the new LEGO Taco Stand GWP set centered around the famous taco stand. This limited edition set promises to be a delightful addition to any LEGO collection, especially if you’re into building and collecting LEGO City sets.

Discovering the LEGO Taco Stand GWP

The LEGO Store in Mexico, known as legostoresmx on Instagram, has officially announced the arrival of a new and exciting gift-with-purchase. This particular GWP set pays homage to the beloved Mexican culinary tradition of tacos and captures the essence of a vibrant Taco stand in the form of LEGO bricks.

Exclusive Availability of the LEGO Taco Stand GWP Set at LEGO Certified Stores in Mexico

lego taco stand gwp

This LEGO promotional set, named and certified as LCS MX Special GWP Taco Stand, is specifically designated for LEGO-certified stores in Mexico. The title itself indicates that this unique set will remain exclusive to LEGO enthusiasts within Mexico’s borders. This exclusivity adds an extra layer of allure to the LEGO Taco Stand GWP, especially since it is made clear that it will not be offered anywhere else.

Limited Time Availability and Pricing Details

Though the official announcement makes it clear that the LEGO Taco Stand GWP has already been rolled out starting May 12, it does not specify until when the offer will expire. But it is right to assume that the LEGO Taco Stand GWP set will be available in Mexico for a limited period, or until supplies last.

To secure this collectible set, LEGO customers will need to make a qualifying purchase of $3,999 MXN, equivalent to around $227 USD as per current currency conversion rates.

Taking a Closer Look at LEGO Taco Stand GWP Set

The LEGO Taco Stand GWP set showcases an intricately designed build that features a minifigure cook positioned behind a counter. Alongside the minifigure, a trompo (or a traditional rotating meat grill) and an assortment of toppings await for LEGO minifigures to craft and enjoy their perfect taco creation. An eye-catching archway adorns the backdrop, housing two bowls and a counter design promoting the LEGO tacos.

Will There be Building Instructions for This?

Due to the set’s distinct name and thematic focus, it is highly unlikely that the LEGO Taco Stand GWP will be available outside of Mexico. Nevertheless, for those residing elsewhere who desire to experience the joy of this taco stand-inspired set, the possibility of recreating is not far-fetched. If the unique designs on the set are not printed, LEGO fans can somehow replicate this build. Especially if there’s a kind soul out there might share the building instructions in creating this piece.

LEGO collectors and fans of Mexican cuisine alike can rejoice as the LEGO Taco Stand GWP set offers a captivating and exclusive addition to LEGO collections. With its intricate design and vibrant representation of a cultural icon, this limited edition set promises to be a cherished item for LEGO fans in Mexico.

LEGO recently gave us a peek of more LEGO Donkey Kong characters to come, adding to the first set revealed last MAR10 celebrations. As it turns out, more LEGO Donkey Kong sets will arrive this summer, and we can expect to see not just Donkey Kong but also other popular characters from the franchise.

Here’s the sneak peek LEGO shared over social media:

From the get-go, we can see that the following iconic DK characters will be given the LEGO treatment.

More LEGO Donkey Kong Characters To Be Expected

Diddy Kong

Joining Donkey Kong is his loyal sidekick, Diddy Kong. The character has been a fan favorite since its debut in the game Donkey Kong Country in 1994. The LEGO version of Diddy Kong is sure to be a hit among collectors and gamers alike.

Another character to join the DK crew is Dixie Kong, who first appeared in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. Dixie Kong is known for her unique abilities, including using her ponytail to float and fly.

Last but not least, Funky Kong, the cool surfer dude and owner of Funky’s Flights, will also be part of the LEGO set. Funky Kong has appeared in several Donkey Kong games and is known for providing transportation to the other characters.

Pricing and Availability

Although no release date has been announced yet, LEGO has teased fans with a brief clip on Twitter featuring the upcoming DK figures. It’s safe to say that fans are eagerly anticipating the release of these figures and cannot wait to add them to their collections.

LEGO’s latest announcement of the Donkey Kong figures is exciting news for both LEGO and Donkey Kong fans. With the addition of Diddy, Dixie, Cranky, and Funky, the DK crew is now complete in LEGO form.

LEGO The Majestic Horse (010423) April Fool’s Set Released

Well, this is something out of the ordinary. Though the infamous prankster’s day has already passed, I’m still amazed at the length LEGO will go through to make things a bit more fun. Because as it turned out, LEGO was kind enough to officially distribute its LEGO The Majestic Horse (010423) set to select LEGO fan media outlets as part of its April 1st joke.

LEGO The Majestic Horse

Just to be clear, this is an actual set and I opted to share this a few days after April 1 to save this news from being brushed off as another April Fool’s prank. As mentioned in its box, the LEGO The Majestic Horse (010423) is an 18+ set and clocks in at 475 pieces. It’s hilarious how LEGO gave a hint of things to come with the set number itself being a play on the date of April 1st.

But the fun happens when you finally happen to finish the build. Because instead of having a galloping horse, you are instead greeted by the iconic doge meme of the Internet. Instead of a horse, you’ll have a vignette of a Shiba Inu wearing a pair of Sonic’s red shoes and one that doesn’t mind pooping on the racing track.

LEGO The Majestic Horse

010423 41085

Unfortunately, there are only 10 of these sets in existence according to The Brick Fan. These sets were given to select recognized LEGO fan media outlets for review (Brickset did a great one on this set), and I’m not sure if LEGO will be releasing the building instructions for its LEGO The Majestic Horse (010423) set anytime soon.  I sure hope they do since it’s a fun and healthy way to prank someone even if it’s not April Fool’s Day.

LEGO Pirate Ship Playground (40589) Promotional Set Officially Revealed

Last week, we caught a glimpse of what could be our next gift-with-purchase (or GWP) set following other promotional freebies such as the LEGO Flowerpot and LEGO Houses of the World 2. And thanks to LEGO Australia’s home shopping portal, we now get to see the official images and product description of the LEGO Pirate Ship Playground (40589).

This latest GWP set comes in at 168 pieces and includes two children minifigures in their pirate garb. The build itself is a playful, brick-built take on a mini pirate ship as our minifigure characters will have it. Plus, it also includes a slide, a cute rotating octopus, a treasure chest, and a palm tree. The playfulness of this set is somehow reminiscent of what we can find from last year’s LEGO VIP exclusive gift which is the Pirate Adventure Ride (6432431) and LEGO Ideas Cosmic Cardboard Adventures (40533).

LEGO Pirate Ship Playground

Valued at $30, there is no word yet on how much you need to spend online or in-store to bag this freebie. If LEGO intends to have this as a Children’s Day gift as the product description suggests, then we might see a release date sometime in June. Children’s Day in the US is celebrated every June 11 so we might see a release date for the LEGO Pirate Ship Playground around the first week of June.

LEGO Houses of the World 2 (40590) Promotional Set Officially Revealed

Following a sneak peek of our next wave of LEGO GWP sets, LEGO.com has now been updated to include official images and product description of the LEGO Houses of the World 2 (40590). As the name suggests, this GWP (or gift-with-purchase) set is the second promotional offering following the modular and South American-inspired LEGO Houses of the World 1 (40583).

LEGO Houses of the World 2

Coming in at 270 pieces, LEGO Houses of the World 2 takes its inspiration from the aesthetic designs of North African homes as mentioned in its official product description. However, I can’t help but notice that it has also certain design elements coming from homes in the Middle East such as in Saudi Arabia.

LEGO Houses of the World 2 is valued at $20 and is the second set out of four from this particular series. And if it will follow its predecessor’s offering price point, then we can somewhat assume that this promotional set may be added to your cart for free once you reach a a minimum spend of $250. I have to admit that as a GWP set, it has an  outrageously high redemption price as compared to earlier promotions. But if you’re looking forward to bagging premium LEGO Icons sets such as The Lord of the Rings: Rivendell (10316), or  the Loop Coaster (10303), then you may want to time your purchases accordingly once the LEGO Houses of the World 2 promo goes live.

I’ll keep you posted once more details about this promotional item is released. For now, check out these crystal clear images.
