LEGO MINDSTORMS 40413 Mini Robots is free yet again, but only with selected sets

LEGO MINDSTORMS 40413 Mini Robots is currently free at in the UK and Europe – but you’ll need to buy from a specific list of sets to qualify for the promo.


The mini version of fourth-generation MINDSTORMS model 51515 Robot Inventor originally launched in October, then returned to the official online store in November. It’s now back yet again, suggesting the LEGO Group still doesn’t have a handle on the true demand for its gifts-with-purchase.

However, where 40413 Mini Robots was originally available as a freebie with any purchase above £100, you’ll now need to choose from a specific list of qualifying LEGO sets. Any one of the below will see the model added to your bag:

17101 Creative Toolbox
21042 Statue of Liberty
21045 Trafalgar Square
31109 Pirate Ship
31197 Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe
31198 The Beatles
31199 Marvel Studios Iron Man
31200 Star Wars The Sith
41424 Jungle Rescue Base
41429 Heartlake City Airplane
42096 Porsche 911 RSR
42112 Concrete Mixer Truck
60197 Passenger Train
60228 Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control
60265 Ocean Exploration Base
71705 Destiny’s Bounty
75272 Sith TIE Fighter
75273 Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter
75284 Knights of Ren Transport Ship
75286 General Grievous’s Starfighter
75968 4 Privet Drive
76153 Avengers Helicarrier

There’s no rhyme or reason behind this grouping of sets as far as we can tell – certainly none are related to MINDSTORMS, beyond perhaps a tenuous link with 17101 Creative Toolbox – but there’s at least a diverse mix to choose from.

The offer will run from today until February 28, or while stocks last. It’s only available in the UK and Europe at the moment, but US fans can still grab 30628 The Monster Book of Monsters with a LEGO Harry Potter spend of $75.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
