The 949 piece set was delayed from its intended August release, with the new LEGO Store calendar revealing that it will now launch in October, along with a promotion offering a free mini version of the set. The Brick Fan shares the image of the calendar.
51515 Robot Inventor will be priced at £329.99 in the UK and $359.99 in the US. It offers five different designs for fans to build, which can them be programmed via the MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor app. Beyond the five models with instructions, there are coding challenges to complete that will require users to apply the skills they have learned through the process. Drag-and-drop coding teaches the process, with Python included for advanced coders.
40413 MINDSTORMS Mini Robots will be free with purchases totalling $100 or more, in-store and at LEGO.com, from October 15 until October 25.
