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 Shop@Home, while supplies last. The contents of the box include two un-numbered bags and the instructions.
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.
There’s also a dog that has appeared before in previous sets also included with this set.
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.
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) although they are separated into two different themes. Again, the Fountain is free with purchases of $75 or more at LEGO Stores and on Shop@Home. 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.
