Last week we from SiP (as well as many others) received an email by Trine Nissen, Senior Communication & PR Manager at the LEGO House. In case you haven´t heard of it yet, here´s what she wrote:
“LEGO House Tree of Creativity” to discontinue
Since the opening of LEGO House it has been an important milestone to create exclusive products that relate to LEGO House and adds to the LEGO House experience for the guests. The first exclusive product launched was the LEGO House Architecture (21037) in 2017, followed by the LEGO House Tree of Creativity (4000026) in 2018, and then the LEGO House Dinosaurs (40366) in 2019.
LEGO House has now decided to discontinue the LEGO House Tree of Creativity – in order to make shelf space for a new exclusive product arriving in late May 2020.
The Tree of Creativity was originally launched as a great reproduction of the 15,6 metre tall Tree of Creativity in LEGO Square. The most iconic features were resized into the retail model. LEGO enthusiasts will know that the LEGO Group also launched a Tree of Creativity model back in May 2017. That particular model was developed as the surprise gift for the participants of the LEGO Inside Tour.
Due to the popularity of the product and the iconic link to LEGO House, the model was chosen to become an LEGO House exclusive product. LEGO designer Steen Sig Andersen is the designer of the retail version in LEGO House and had great focus on the details.
The LEGO House Tree of Creativity will be sold until out of stock. However, a special agreement has been made to ensure that the product is available during the AFOL Day in LEGO House on the 24th September 2020.
Time Is Running Out
Unless you´re planning on attending this year´s AFOL Day, the chances to get your hands on one of these 839 (not 6316611 like the original in Billund) pieces sets are rapidly fading. Signs inside the store at the LEGO House are pointing that out as well.
As I hadn´t gotten my copy yet, I hopped in my little car and went all the way to Billund to to get mine.
Plant Build A Tree
With full (allowed) speed straight back home, I could not resist
growing building the set right away. Trine´s minifig kindly helped me unboxing my own Tree Of Creativity.
What about you? Do you already have one at home? Or will you be visiting the LEGO House to get one of the few left?
And what do you think will hit the shelves at the Home Of The Brick later this year in May? Tell us in the comments and let the rumours run wild…
