Free LEGO Year of the Tiger Minifigure at LEGO Stores

I’ve recently gotten a few emails regarding a LEGO Year of the Tiger minifigure that LEGO stores are giving out free to kids and there is now a image of what it looks like. It is to celebrate the Lunar New Year and the minifigure features a kid with a printed tiger face with printed torso and tail. The cap with the ears is also printed and removable as well. I’ve been told that it is the same as the one from the October 2020 Build a Minifigure. Either way, it’s a free minifigure that doubles up for the Year of the Tiger. Depending on how much traffic your store had since they started, they might or might not have any left over. Were you able to get one?

LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) Available at Walmart – January 2022

For those who missed the Zavvi offer the other day, Walmart is also selling the LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) as a standalone set. It is also retailing for $9.99 and it is still currently a gift with purchase promo over on the LEGO Shop where you have to spend $85 to get it.

I thought the Zavvi pre-order was just a fluke as a brand new GWP set isn’t supposed to be sold separately, especially since it just got released, but if Walmart is also selling them, does this mean that we can just buy upcoming GWPs in the future? We’ll see next month when that promo goes live, whenever that is. Thanks to Gordon for the heads up.

LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) Pre-Order on Zavvi

The LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) promotional set went live today on the LEGO Shop but if you have nothing to purchase, Zavvi seems to be selling it as a standalone set for $9.99. They are taking pre-orders for it and it will be released on January 28. I’m not sure if I’ve seen a brand new promo set being on sale at another retailer but I took a chance and ordered a few for my family to see if it works.

The LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) promotion is now live on the LEGO Shop and you can get it for free with purchases of $85 or more, while supplies last. Coming in at 193 pieces, it continues the line of the Chinese New Year zodiac animals which started with these particular style and is the 8th one in the line if you don’t count the Year of the Snake (10250) which was a different style.

Similar to previous years, the box uses the front flap design and when you open it up, you also get an envelope to gift to another person if you like.

As for the tiger build itself, it is mostly static with the articulation only coming from the ears and the tail. This year’s build is a little bit more boring than other years but the cute, cartoony style is still there. You also get a small display stand that it can sit on.

Overall the LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) is a fun little set that I looked forward to getting to add to my zodiac animal collection. For 2023, it’ll be the Year of the Rat so I’ll be looking forward to that. This promotion will run until January 27.

LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) GWP Starts Next Week

LEGO has revealed that the LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) promotional set will be available from January 10-27, while supplies last. You can get it for free with purchases of $85/£85/€85 and it coincides with the release of the LEGO Chinese Traditional Festival sets so there shouldn’t be any issues getting it.

LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) Official Images

Last month, we got our first look at the upcoming LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) set which came from LEGO’s Declaration of Conformity and there are now official images of the set. The set has 193 pieces but we don’t know when it will be released at this time. It will most likely be available in January like with previous years. The price threshold to get it would be about $80 or $88 which is the normal from previous years. The number 8 is a very lucky number in Chinese culture so it will most likely be one of the two prices which should be confirmed when the January store calendar is released.

LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) First Look

Every year around Chinese New Year, LEGO likes to do a promotional set for the Chinese Zodiac animals and the Year of the Tiger (40491) has been revealed on LEGO’s Declaration of Conformity. This will be the 8th animal from the series which started all the way back in 2015 with the Year of the Sheep (40148). If you want to be technical, the Year of the Snake (10250) was released back in 2013 but it was a different style than these ones. Also, the first couple of sets were Asia exclusives so it was a bit harder to get than in recent years. The Year of the Tiger (40491) will most likely be part of a promotion in late January or some time in February.
