UPDATE: LEGO have finally confirmed that the LEGO Jane Goodall Tribute GWP will be available directly from the Australian LEGO.com online store on 9-15 May.
So this has been quite the frustrating release – but the LEGO Jane Goodall Tribute GWP (gift with purchase) has finally been made available in Australia, at specific retail locations.
The GWP, which coincides with International Women’s Day 2022, and Women’s History Month honouring the great ethologist and primatologist Dr Jane Goodall is currently available worldwide on LEGO.com until the 15th of March 2022, but has been missing from the online LEGO Store in Australia.
That said, if you’ve been waiting to get the set in Australia, the set is finally available from the following retailers for free when you spend AU$169 or more.
- LEGO Certified Stores (online and in-store)
- Dreamworld LEGO Store (online and in-store)
- Legoland Discovery Centre Melbourne (in-store only)
It’s unsure whether the set will be made available online on the Australian LEGO.com, but it would be very surprising as it’ll make this the first big GWP to be dropped from Australia.
I’ve received conflicting information with one source saying that it won’t be available on LEGO.com, and another saying it will.
I think the absence can be partly explained by LEGO Australia’s warehouse upgrade/move, which is causing some delays with online orders, and my guess is that in the midst of the move, and delays of stock landing in the country, the GWP might’ve been caught up in all of this, and we might see it at a later date. Fingers crossed.
If you’ve been waiting on the Jane Goodall Tribute GWP, I recommend just shopping through the LEGO Certified Stores Network or the Dreamworld LEGO Store, unless you want to risk waiting for it to maybe appear on LEGO’s Online Store at a later date.
