LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) Review

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486)

Last week, we got our first look at the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) gift with purchase set that was shown in the designer video for the larger 10282 version. This 92 piece set will be available from July 1-25 with purchases of $85/€95/£95 or more on the LEGO Shop. You do not need to purchase the buildable adidas Superstar to get it but it will look nice next to it.

The set comes with a minifigure dressed as a adidas shoebox. The box is actually the 2×3 brick costume piece that we’ve seen before in previous Collectible Minifigures series with a tiled sticker on the front. He wears a white cap and has a microphone and boombox as accessories.

The sole of the shoe is made up of plates with the front using a modified 4×4 and the heel using a round 4×4 plate to get the angles. I will say that the back heel is very flimsy until you attach it to the sole. To get the look of the tongue, it uses a 2×6 plate with T-Pieces for the laces. There’s also an adidas sticker on a 2×2 slope at the end. The side designs uses printed 1×2 tiles.

From I’ve read online, fans really dig the smaller LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (40486) build and it does look really cute. The threshold to get it is a little high for what you get but it is a licensed product. I would say $45-$55 would have been a better purchasing limit for it.

LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282)

LEGO dropped a surprise announcement yesterday with the LEGO adidas Originals Superstar (10282) which is part of their ongoing collaboration with adidas. The set has 731 pieces and will retail for $79.99. Since LEGO introduced the new 18+ designation for some sets, it may attract people that aren’t really fans of LEGO but are fans of a particular item and for this instance, shoes, aka sneakerheads.


Box

Unlike the usual LEGO boxes, the Superstar actually comes in a shoebox which is something that enhances the value of the set a little. It does come LEGO branded throughout including a minifigure head cut-out on one side of the box and the copyright on the other.

When you open the lid, you get the 18+ layout showing the Superstar on a black background.

When you cut open the tape, there’s another surprise as it comes with a sheet of tissue paper similar to when you buy a brand new shoe. It covers up the numbered bags and the instructions are at the bottom of the box.

The inside of the box is also decorated with the adidas logo on the flap and the bottom of the shoe on the bottom of the box.

LEGO Carousel (5006745) Promo Revealed

LEGO Japan currently has a new promotion going on for a mini Carousel (5006745) which is in the same scale as one of the promos that we will be having here in the US in few weeks. The Carousel features a small ride with some duckies and it looks like there’s a printed Japan 2021 tile on the front.

We possibly could see this set in a future gift-with-purchase promotion like with the Swing Ship Ride (5006746) which was a Children’s Day promo but the tile changed to Leg Godt to appeal to a more wider audience. We shall see.
