LEGO Creator Fountain (40221)

Today, LEGO released the Creator Fountain (40221) as a free set as part of a June 2016 promotion. It consists of 105 pieces and you can get it with purchases of $75 or more at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected], while supplies last. The contents of the box include two un-numbered bags and the instructions.

Minifigure

There’s a female minifigure that is included in the set however none of the parts are exclusive since they’ve appeared before in a few previous sets. Her torso is a red striped jacket with a press badge printing while the legs are plain black. Her accessories include a 2×2 printed newpaper tile and a cookie. There’s also an extra cookie as a spare piece.

The statue is technically a monochrome minifigure in light-bluish gray. It represents some sort of winged warrior who has a helmet, beard, and a sword. It also wears a bracket piece to hold the pearl-gold wing pieces. The statue is also interchangable as a female statue that carries a flag as there is also a female hair piece included.

Build

The first part of the build is just a yellowish-orange bicycle. The bike in this color is pretty new as it has only appear in one other 2016 set.

There are also two identical dark blue benches. The only difference between the two are the objects next to them. One is a dark red trash can and the other is a potted six-stem flower with lavendar and magenta petals.

The main centerpiece of this set is obviously the fountain itself. It’s a small circular structure that actually has a lot of detail packed into it. There are some pearl-gold frogs surrounding the base and are facing the statue. Inside the base are four trans-light blue Chima CHI crystals with some bulbs to portray water coming out of spouts. In the middle is the aforementioned statue standing on top of a Roman-style column.

Results

Overall, the LEGO Creator Fountain (40221) set is a great set to be part of a gift with purchase promotion. I feel this is one of the better set promos that LEGO has done in recent times. When the images of this set were released, people were excited as it does go along well with the LEGO City Fun in the Park – City People Pack (60134)icon although they are separated into two different themes. Again, the Fountain is free with purchases of $75 or more at LEGO Stores and on [email protected]. This offer goes on June 15 or while supplies last but I’m going to take a guess that it probably won’t last that long.

    I would happily have bought this and it deserves its place alongside the Gingerbread house for outstanding promotional sets. Kai flyer? Mr Freeze? No contest really… And alongside the stormtrooper polybag…

    My only nitpicky complaint is, I would have liked the wings to match the rest of the statue. The gold wings don’t look right to me. It would have also been cool if they made it the same rocky texture as the Gargoyle, and given it some kind of face – double sided, one for the female, one for the male.
    BUT, that being said, I still want it.

  • Francesco Gavardi

    that’s clearly a Leslie Knope minifig

      WOAH

    Great set. Only things that would have made this better is a unique figure and gray wings for the staue. (Like others have posted, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a stone statue with bronze wings)

    I made a purchase I was holding off on just to get this set.

    I really like this set, I think it fits well by 60134.
