It’s an unusual move given that LEGOIdeas sets often have shorter lifespans than regular retail sets. That said, the lifespan of LEGO sets has become more unpredictable in the past few years.
These sets are being discussed as reissues, but in such instances small changes are sometimes made – usually as a result of certain elements being retired or replaced. That means that they may not be 100% identical to the original editions.
