Forest Hideout Available Now!

AFOLs and fans of the classic Castles theme are in for a treat. Starting today, the Forest Hideout is available as a gift-with-purchase (GWP) at the LEGO® Store. You can acquire it with purchases over $190 CAD both online and in store. The offer runs from June 15 until June 22, or while supplies last. I think this will be a popular GWP, so I suggest getting it sooner rather than later.

You might be scratching your head at this point and wondering, “Haven’t I seen this before?” The answer is yes. Forest Hideout is a remake of the 1988 Forestmen’s Hideout (6054). Of course, designers reimagined the 2022 version using newer pieces. However, the original concept remains completely recognizable. In terms of how the sets compare:

The Forest Hideout available now as a GWP is part of the 90th anniversary celebration by the LEGO® Group. Incidentally, expect more announcements concerning the festivities this Saturday as part of LEGO® Con 2022. I am hoping for more Castles announcements to come. However, even if this is it, Forest Hideout goes great with 2021’s Medieval Castle. Additionally, it meshes even better with Castle in the Forest from the Bricklink Designer Program, if you were lucky enough to get one. What do you think of this latest GWP?

    Can’t-resist-must-get. :S

    Hoping this matches the ‘maybe’ new castle coming. Or at least my Blacksmith model.

    1. Did you manage to get the Bricklink Designer Program Castle in the Forest? It goes well with that. I’m sure it’ll look great with any hypothetical castles that may or may not arise as well…

        No – I regret not picking that up. I managed to snag the fishing boat instead. In hindsight, I wish I’d have gone with the castle. Esp. now that the other BIGGER, AMAZING ‘hypothetical’ castle has arrived 😀

      2. Sadly, we all have sets that got away☹️
