Five sets that will earn you LEGO Classic Space 40580 Blacktron Cruiser GWP
With the deadline for LEGO Classic Space 40580 Blacktron Cruiser GWP nearly up, here are five sets that will push you over the minimum spend.
You’ve only got until the end of today (January 14) or while stocks last to add the 356-piece ode to 1987’s 6894 Invader. At the time of writing, it looks like there are still some sets available, but you’ll need to spend at least £170 in the UK, $190 in the US, or €190 in Europe to qualify for the free GWP. With that in mind, here are a few sets that you could buy that would instantly qualify you for 40580 Blacktron Cruiser.
5 – LEGO Ideas 21335 Motorised Lighthouse
Theme: Ideas Price: £259.99 / $299.99 / €299.99 Pieces: 2,065
Selling for £259.99 / $299.99 / €299.99, 21335 Motorised Lighthouse is well over the threshold for 40580 Blacktron Cruiser, plus it makes an attractive addition to any LEGO collection. At 54cm high, it’s a tall set that packs a lot of detail into its mighty height. To man the lighthouse, the LEGO Ideas set comes with two minifigures, as well as a brick-built canoe to get them to and from the rocky outcrop on which it’s perched.
4 – LEGO Icons 10297 Boutique Hotel
Theme: Icons Price: £199.99 / $229.99 / €229.99 Pieces: 3,066
One of the most unique-looking Modular Buildings, 10297 Boutique Hotel presents elegant turn-of-the-century European architecture from the palm-tree-adorned exterior to the luxurious guest rooms and foyer inside. The seven minifigures have plenty to do in and around the hotel, with an attached art gallery onhand for a day of refined culture.
3 – LEGO Ideas 21327 Typewriter
Theme: Ideas Price: £214.99 / $249.99 / €249.99 Pieces: 2,079
Another LEGO Ideas set, 21327 Typewriter can actually move as though it were typing. You can feed a real sheet of paper into the brick-built machine, to give the illusion of a peroper retro typewriter. Every key is its own printed tile, with no need to align stickers carefully on the LEGO elements. Plus, the set harks back to the LEGO Group’s own history, based on a machine once used by the company’s own founder, Ole Kirk Kristiansen.
2 – LEGO Icons 10312 Jazz Club
Theme: Icons Price: £199.99 / $229.99 / €229.99 Pieces: 2,899
The latest addition to the Modular Buildings range, 10312 Jazz Club continues the trend of splitting the 32×32 plate into two buildings. This set includes a jazz club (no surprises there) and a pizzeria, with an open-plan flow inside so people can move between the music and the food with ease. All the minifigures work in one of the establishments, so you’ll need to pair this set with some other minifigures if your jazz club is going to make any money!
1 – LEGO Ideas 21332 The Globe
Theme: Ideas Price: £199.99 / $229.99 / €229.99 Pieces: 2,585
Another retro display piece, 21332 The Globe can actually spin around a LEGO Technic axis. Carefully-arranged plates create the illusion of a circular globe in a style that’s usually hard to achieve with LEGO elements. To add an extra old-fashioned feel, the globe is also dotted with vintage-style ship and compass icons.
