LEGO 40450 Amelia Earheart Tribute gift with purchase set revealed [News]

Today we’re getting our first official, high-quality images of LEGO’s next tribute set, 40450 Amelia Earhart Tribute, by way of the Australian LEGO certified store. According to the Australian LEGO store, the set will be a free Gift with Purchase for customers who spend at least $199.99 AUD starting tomorrow, Feb. 22, until supplies are exhausted. There’s no word yet on the promotion details in other parts of the world. It follows on two previous tribute sets, 40291 Creative Personalities featuring Hans Christian Andersen, and 40410 Charles Dickens Tribute.

Among the most famous aviation pioneers, Amelia Earhart disappeared in 1937 on her trip to circumnavigate the globe flying a Lockheed Model 10-E Electra. However, the red aircraft portrayed in the LEGO set is the Lockheed Vega 5B that she flew solo across the Atlantic in 1932 and is now on display in the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.

The set comes with a large display stand and one minifigure, Amelia Earhart, holding a map of the world.

    Here in North America it falls to basic marketing rules. Let’s get the consumer to spend money on March 1st for the new releases, because they will what with shortages post- release. And then let’s get them spend another $100 (or $130 in Canada!) a week later by going live with this GWP. Bwahaha….

    Cant say i like this set much. Best thing is the minifig imo – but then i guess i am biased as i don’t like the basic red color and this set has it plentiful.
