Lego’s Mini Steamboat Willy offer has headed off into the distance but there’s a whole new Lego when-bought-with offer. Spend over £115/$130 on Lego.com and you get this Lego Ideas Galileo Galilei set, absolutely free.
This awesome little set began life as a Lego Ideas submission, from a builder by the name of Firecracker. It was the grand winner of the Ready, Set, STEM! competition, where entrants had to submit a science, technology, engineering or mathematics model with some kind of movement.
In case you’re thinking the winner was short-changed by this being a when-bought-with set, it was clear from the beginning that was going to be the case. Plus, they got some very cool Lego sets for being the grand winner.
Now, you can get your hands on this awesome little set, which pays tribute to Galileo Galilei, the man who unlocked our our understanding of the universe and discovered Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
It’s made up of just 307 bricks but it has some very neat features. There’s a heliocentric model, a picture of the Tower of Pisa, and even a globe. The latter is a repurposed minifig head which is pretty clever. However, viewed from a distance, it does look like he’s gone a bit Jason Voorhees.
You can feast your eyes on the set here. All you have to do to get your hands on this free Lego Ideas Galileo Galilei set is to spend $130/£115 on any Lego. It’ll have to be in one single transaction, and you’ve got until Nov 16th to do it. But if you’re shopping for Christmas, this is a great little bonus.
