There are a number of 2021 LEGO sets that are going to be released later this year but are already available for pre-order. While pre-ordered sets don’t get shipped until the actual release date (and you won’t be charged until then either), the benefit is that you don’t have to scramble to place an order when the set is available and risk getting the dreaded out of stock notification. You have the peace of mind that your order is already in, and LEGO will ship it as soon possible. Below is a list of all the sets currently available for pre-order that you can purchase at the Online LEGO Shop.
#10290 LEGO CREATOR PICKUP TRUCK: This set showed up a few days ago at the Online LEGO Shop without any official announcement. This is quite strange, as the large LEGO Creator Expert vehicles always used to get a special press-release. Anyhow, it features a generic 1950s American style vintage pickup truck (no license involved), designed especially for adult LEGO builders. It comes with a stepside bed, opening doors, hood, and tailgate and removable wooden side railings. There are also a bunch of accessories to create a seasonal display; a wheelbarrow with flowers and a watering can for spring, two wooden crates, tomatoes, carrots and a milk pail for summer, a crate with pumpkins for the fall, and a wreath and festive gift for winter. The vehicle measures over 5.5 in. (14 cm) high, 13 in. (33 cm) long and 5.5 in. (14 cm) wide. The set comes with 1,677 pieces and the price is $129.99. You can pre-order it today and it will ship from October 1st at the 18+ section of the Online LEGO Shop.
#10289 LEGO BOTANICAL COLLECTION BIRD OF PARADISE: We talked about this set already (see links at the end of this post), but to recap, it is the third set in the LEGO Botanical Collection (along with the #10280 LEGO Flower Bouquet and the #10281 LEGO Bonsai Tree. It features a brick-built version of a Bird of Paradise in a stylish black pot. It actually makes a really nice looking and unique house plant that you will never have to water (although you might want to dust it off from time to time). As a guide, the tallest leaf limb measures over 18 in. (46 cm) high and the flowerpot measures over 5 in. (13 cm) in diameter. The set comes with 1,173 pieces and the price is $99.99. You can pre-order it today and it will ship from August 1st at the 18+ section of the Online LEGO Shop.
