LEGO will celebrating the 40th anniversary of the LEGO minifigure in April and there are things happening next month to commemorate the event.
Series 18 that I posted about a while back comes out. Another thing they are doing is releasing an exclusive promotional LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358).
According to the April 2018 LEGO Store Calendar, you can get for free with a purchase of $75 or more from April 1-15, while supplies last.
The set itself looks like it will be using the cardboard box it comes in as part of the layout much like the Caveman and Woman set.
The build will include a factory with some microfigures such as a classic spaceman, a policeman, and what looks to be P.I.X.A.L. from Ninjago as well as a red wagon on the side. The minifigure also looks interesting as it seems to have a nice looking yellow shirt.
The downside of this set is that it does use part of the box as the setting and not using LEGO bricks to create the walls like the LEGO VIP Store. What do you think of the set and will you be picking it up next month?
