Looks like the team over at LEGO Ideas are on the hunt for some cool fan based ideas to take up the mantle of the next space themed gift with purchase (GWP) set. Letting my mind drift in the heavens above I wonder if this is a hint of a new yet to be announced and much wanted space theme? Sorry that’s just a wild guess and not linked to any insider knowledge – cue the sad face 🙁
Anyway back to point – time to let your imagination run wild and come up with an awesome small to mid sized model that fits within 16 x 16 stud base. Of course being space themed it needs to be out of this world from space rockets, space colonies to aliens etc…
The best part (other than getting creative with LEGO) is your entry has the opportunity to be adapted into a Gift with Purchase set in 2019!
