for LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at 40497 Halloween Owl has revealed the next buildable animal in the seasonal series, a Christmas-themed penguin.

Just like 40462 Valentine’s Brown Bear and 40463 Easter Bunny before it, 40497 Halloween Owl places a buildable animal on a rounded base, then tops off the scene with seasonal décor. That trend will continue in 40498, the fourth and presumably final model in the series for 2021.

The first image of that set on the back of 40497 Halloween Owl’s box is pretty tiny, but it’s also all you really need to get a sense of what’s included: a penguin atop an icy base, complete with a seasonally-appropriate Christmas tree and gifts.

We don’t have a launch date, price or even a product name for 40498 yet, but it’s safe to assume it will match its predecessors at £13.49 / $14.99 / €14.99. And given 40497 Halloween Owl will launch on August 1 at and in LEGO Buy at Buy at Buy at Buy at Stores – nearly two months ahead of the holiday it’s celebrating – expect 40498 to follow in October.

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.
