Update: the LEGO 40578 Sandwich Shop is now available as a gift with purchase (GWP), in Australia, the UK and Europe and will be free when you purchase AU$179, £90 or €90 or more on LEGO.com from 16 – 30 September 2022, while stocks last.
Unfortunately, it looks like it’s been delayed for those in North America.
It’s a fun little addition to your LEGO City, with a small Sandwich shop, and even a food delivery rider ready to pick up and deliver online orders.
In Japan, the promotion will begin on 16 September, and will be free with purchases of 12,000 yen (approx US$87) or more , and at time of posting, it’s not confirmed whether the dates will align globally, but this should give you a close approximation of when to plan your purchases to get your hands on it.
It’s a pretty cute set, and I like the idea of having more food-based shops/stands like these to feed the hungry citizens of LEGO City.
The design does seem to heavily reference a classic Town set – 6683 Burger Stand, with a serving window, and table with parasol outside. Times have definitely changed, and LEGO City does look like its moving on from a diet of Pizza Shop and Burgers to more health-conscious Sandwich options.
Keep an eye out for this one some time in September!
