Revealed just yesterday, Matthew Ashton’s celebration of diversity and inclusivity will be arriving on shelves on June 1 for just £30.99 / $34.99 / €34.99. But while you wait to get your hands on your own copy, you can already check out the set’s 346 pieces and 11 monochromatic minifigures in an early review from Brickset.
While it’s clear that the rainbow-coloured set doesn’t offer the most involved building experience, that’s not why you’re buying 40516 Everyone is Awesome (if you are). Instead – as Brickset’s photos prove – it’s all about the display model that those bricks build into, acting as a tribute to and celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community across its 11 different colours.
As Brickset’s review reveals, however, the set actually includes 12 colours in total. Squirrelled away in the pillars that form the backdrop for the monochromatic minifigures are a handful of tan pieces, which act as structural reinforcement for that smooth, studless display.
