A LEGO Certified Store in Singapore has given us our first official look at the upcoming March 2022 LEGO gift with purchase (GWP) – a tribute to world renowned ethologist and primatologist Jane Goodall!
40530 Jane Goodall Tribute will be available from 3 March 2022 onwards in commemoration of International Women’s Day, which falls on 8 March 2022.
Update: The LEGO Jane Goodall Tribute set will be available as a gift with purchase from 3 – 15 March 2022 on LEGO.com or your local LEGO store, and will be free with purchases of US$120 / €120 / £120.
Update (3/3): The set has been delayed in Australia due to shipping and customs delays. LEGO Australia have provided a tentative date of 8 March of when you can expect the set on LEGO.com/LEGO Certified Stores/Legoland Discovery Centre, but due to the floods in NSW, it might be delayed further.
Check out my review of the LEGO Jane Goodall Tribute set to see more of the upcoming GWP!
The release date is likely to be the same worldwide, and in Singapore, the gift with purchase has a threshold of S$165, suggesting that we might have a high threshold for this one.
If you’re holding out on jumping on all the exciting March 2022 releases, you might want to wait till the 3rd to pull the trigger, especially if you’re shopping on LEGO.com or your local LEGO store to not miss out on the Jane Goodall GWP.
The set features a rainforest diorama, with some fantastic landscaping, and an exclusive Jane Goodall minifigure, which I must say is a spitting image of Dr Jane Goodall. The set also comes with 3 apes, representing the chimpanzees that Dr Jane Goodall studied.
This is a follow-up to last year’s International Women’s Day gwp – 40450 Amelia Earheart Tribute which paid homage to the aviation pioneer.
It’s fantastic to see what seems like an annual LEGO International Women’s Day build, and I’m sure the Jane Goodall Tribute will look great next to Amelia Earhart.
Props to @brickfinder for the tip-off with this!
