The promotional Christmas set is the latest seasonal gift with purchase. It uses the splat gears introduced with the LEGO Movie 2 range to create a turntable for the included minifigures to skate around the snowy scene.
It’ll make a fine, festive addition to any Winter Village layout, so it’s a shame the qualifying spend far outweighs the cost of the latest set in that collection, 10275 Elf Club House. But you can always take the opportunity to catch up on last year’s Winter Village set, 10267 Gingerbread House, if you don’t own it already.
That’s if they come back in stock in time, of course, because you’ll also have LEGO.com’s stock shortages to contend with. After the hectic VIP Weekend Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping events, the LEGO Group’s inventory has practically been wiped out – at least where its biggest and best sets are concerned. Just check our Top 20 LEGO Sets List for the proof, where almost all of the sets are currently on backorder.
If you do want to snag a copy of 40416 Ice Skating Rink, you’ve got until December 24 to find something to buy. That’s dependent on stock levels of the freebie itself, of course – and if the LEGO Group has opted to produce it in limited quantities, it could run out well before Christmas Eve.
VIPs can also bag a free gift wrapping set with orders totalling £40 / $40 placed through December 15. Both offers stack during that window, so you can bag double freebies with a £150 / $150 spend.
