LEGO 40581 BIONICLE Tahu & Takua GWP detailed in official building instructions
The official Building Instructions page has revealed more details on the upcoming LEGO 40581 BIONICLE Tahu & Takua GWP.
Next week sees the arrival of a new retro LEGO GWP set, with 40581 BIONICLE Tahu & Takua available from January 27, 2023. The promotional model can be picked up with spends of £90 / $100 / €100 and over and includes a brick-built pair of classic constraction characters.
The 219-piece set reimagines two of the theme’s most iconic characters with traditional System bricks and also comes with a surfboard and display stand for Tahu – the leader of the original six Toa Mata. Although not packaged in the theme’s classic plastic canisters, the BIONICLE figures should still have plenty of appeal for fans of a certain age.
Ahead of the set’s release, official building instructions for 40581 BIONICLE Tahu & Takua can now be downloaded from LEGO.com, with the booklet offering more details on the upcoming set. The instructions also include an introduction from Greg Farstey, writer of the long-running BIONICLE comic book series, who discusses the impact of the theme and what it means to its many fans.
“In 2001, The LEGO Group introduced a new theme that would become a global sensation: LEGO BIONICLE,” says Farstey. “This story of mighty heroes with elemental powers took the world by storm and inspired comics, novels and four films. Now two of the most popular characters, Tahu and Takua, return in the form of this Exclusive set – in System bricks!”
“This special set is not only a tribute to the BIONICLE heroes – it’s a thank you to the legions of fans who have kept the spirit of BIONICLE alive for more than 20 years. It’s the passion and creativity of the fans of all ages that ensure the legends of the Toa will always live on.”
40581 BIONICLE Tahu & Takua will be available from January 27, 2023. There are currently three LEGO GWPs that can be obtained from the official online store and in-stores, with the offers for 40575 Year of the Rabbit, 40583 Houses of the World 1 and 40605 Lunar New Year VIP Add-On Pack all due to expire on January 25, 2023.
