LEGO Ideas 40566: Ray the Castaway – A Marooned Gift with Purchase [Review]

It’s been over a year since the official LEGO Ideas vote revealed that Ray the Castaway by Daditwins would be a future gift with purchase. And now, at long last, we can get our hands on the final set (LEGO Ideas 40566: Ray the Castaway) from October 1st – 13th with qualifying purchases of US $120 | CAN TBD | UK £120 from LEGO stores or LEGO Shop Online. Clocking in at 239 pieces, is this GWP something everyone will need to pick up, or will it be “cast away” as inferior? Read on for my full review to find out.

The LEGO Group provided The Brothers Brick with a copy of this set for review. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews.

If a castaway life is this good, send me on a shipwreck!

I had a feeling that a scene like this couldn’t come soon enough from the castaway minifigure in the latest Collectible Minifigure (CMF) lineup. What’s not to love about this scene where a cute abode is made up of wood drift and healthy unlimited sashimi from the sea. Tom Hanks would be proud of this shipwreck survivor indeed.  We’re got a tip by builder Kev.the.Builder that the hermit crab (from the same blind CMF pack)  is definitely in the scene, but can you spot it? It finally hit me and I feel something is amiss… where’s Wilson?
