Back in January, the LEGO® Group released a gift-with-purchase (GWP) that left many AFOLs scratching their heads. And that is putting it lightly. We all remember Houses of the World 1. The GWP that required a $350 CAD purchase to acquire. The same set turned up again in early March at the same purchase point. Houses of the World 1 was the first in a series of four sets. Today, I learned of Houses of the World 2. It appeared on the LEGO® website as an upcoming GWP. Will it come at a lower purchase point than its predecessor? Um… yes?
Houses of the World 2 Set Specifics
- NAME: Houses of the World 2
- SET #: 40590
- THEME: Gift-With-Purchase
- Purchase Point: $330 CAD
- COST: $24.99 CAD value
- BRICK COUNT: 270
- MINIFIGURES: None
- RELEASE DATE: TBD
The LEGO® site describes the set as a “beautiful North African house.” There is no word on the exact date that Houses of the World 2 will be available. However, the current Easter Basket promotion ends April 13. Consequently, I’m guessing 40590 will come out shortly thereafter. I was not a fan of Houses of the World 1. I thought the purchase point was way too high for a set that included no Minifigures and was not even minifig scale. Not to mention that similar sized GWPs often come at lower price thresholds. While the latest addition to the collection technically comes at a lower purchase point, it is not much lower. You have to fork out $330 CAD for this one. There is nothing currently on my wish list that even qualifies. What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
