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.
