LEGO Ideas 40335 Space Rocket Ride official images

Official images have been discovered showing the new LEGO Ideas gift with purchase set, 40335 Space Rocket Ride.

Last March, a competition was run on LEGO Ideas asking fans to design a small gift with purchase LEGO model. Cosmic Rocket Ride! (Coin Operated) by mjsmiley was the winning entry, and now the Brick Fan has shared official images of the finished set. 40335 Space Rocket Ride will be available from June 5 as part of a gift with purchase set, perhaps to tie in with another space related release that fans are expecting to be widespread soon.

The set depicts a small coin operated ride themed as a rocket, with a delighted minifigure enjoying himself. It achieved its success after meeting the following criteria:

Overall coolness and originality: 25%
Brings back childhood memories
The overall function of the model is extremely cute and definitely adds value to the item
The model is vibrant in colour and would look awesome on the packaging

Most inspired details: 25%
