60278 Crook’s Hideout Raid – as its name is now listed at Brickset – first appeared in the back of a Friends instruction manual in January. We’ve heard nothing on the set since, however, even while themes including Star Wars, Monkie Kid, Marvel and NINJAGO have all debuted new products.
That’s because the instruction manual for the newly-released 41450 Heartlake City Shopping Mall includes the same CITY layout that first revealed 60278 Crook’s Hideout Raid – but omits that set entirely.
If it’s still due to be released in the near future, it’s fair to assume it would still be included in those promotional materials. The question now is: has 60278 Crook’s Hideout Raid (and its comical oversized dynamite) been shelved for good, or will it still land later this year?
We’ve reached out to the LEGO Group to find out what’s going on, so we’ll let you know as soon as we can.
