The rest of the world received 40486 Adidas Originals Superstar with qualifying purchases in July, alongside the launch of the larger LEGO for Adults 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar. The threshold was puzzlingly pitched slightly higher than the cost of the set across the UK, US and Europe, and the same is true in Australia – but not in New Zealand.
You’ll need to spend $189 AUD / $189 NZD on any LEGO sets across the entire portfolio to qualify for 40486 Adidas Originals Superstar. In Australia, that means you’ll need to add an extra $30 of product on top of 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar if you want both shoes. In New Zealand, however, buying just the bigger trainer will net you its smaller companion piece.
Of course, there’s nothing to say you have to buy 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar as part of that $189 total – literally any set apart from the BrickLink Designer Program models (which now appear to be unavailable for purchase anyway) and Bricks & Pieces orders will count towards the total.
40486 Adidas Originals Superstar will be available online and in-store in Australia and New Zealand until August 31, or while stocks last. It’s long since gone from everywhere else.
