It’s the perfect time to work through your wish list at LEGO.com, as the sublime 40450 Amelia Earhart Tribute is now free with qualifying purchases.
You’ll need to spend £100 / $100 / €100 to see the recreation of Earhart’s bright red Lockheed Vega 5B added to your bag – provided there’s any stock left by the time you read this, that is.
Inventory levels of the LEGO Group’s gifts-with-purchase have been infamously volatile over the past few months, even beyond those of its wider range (and perennially in-stock/out-of-stock sets like 71043 Hogwarts Castle and 71040 The Disney Castle).
That’s apparently in part thanks to the unprecedented demand on the LEGO Group’s products as a result of the pandemic – but as we’re sure you don’t need reminding, we’re a year into this global crisis at this stage, so hopefully the company has managed to produce plenty of copies of what’s sure to be a very popular gift-with-purchase.
You can read our review to find out why the LEGO Group’s ode to the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic is likely to be such a huge hit, or simply head over to LEGO.com and hope there’s still one left in stock for you to snap up.
If it has already disappeared from the online store by the time you read this – and we really hope it hasn’t – your best bet may be heading to a LEGO Store where they’re open, or waiting for them to re-open where they’re not.
With any luck, the LEGO Group will still have shipped plenty of copies of 40450 Amelia Earhart Tribute to its brand retail locations, ready to be given away when stores open their doors once again.
