That’s very simply in the amount of money you’ll need to spend at LEGO.com and in LEGO Stores to pick it up when it launches July 1, because it just about outstrips the cost of 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar – the larger 18+ set that it’s clearly designed to accompany.
Also launching July 1 in tandem with the smaller GWP, 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar will retail for £79.99 in the UK, $79.99 in the US and from €89.99 in Europe. In order to add 40486 Adidas Originals Superstar to your basket, though, you’ll need to spend £95 in the UK, $85 in the US and €95 in Europe.
That’s a shortfall of £15.01 in the UK, $5.01 in the US and €5.01 in Europe (quick maths). Shoppers in the US and Europe will only need to add, say, two 71030 Looney Tunes Collectible Minifigures to get their order over the limit, but UK fans will need to go the extra mile to secure a copy of 40486 Adidas Originals Superstar.
It’s unfortunate given how well the smaller buildable shoe complements its bigger brother, particularly in that minifigure (which really should have been included in the larger set, if we’re being honest).
