Today is the start of the LEGO Jane Goodall Tribute (40530) promotion on the LEGO Shop and here’s our quick review of the set. It has 276 pieces and you can get it for free with purchases of $120 or more until March 15, while supplies last. The set comes in five unnumbered bags and it contains a small sticker for the plaque.
The Jane Goodall minifigure features her in a sand-green shirt with tan pants. Her wrinkled facial expression shows her with a smile. A white ponytail completes her look. She comes with a pair of binoculars as an accessory.
The build features a small jungle habitat that consists of three trees. The right side of the habitat has a small stream of water that uses trans-blue tiles. The larger tree on the left uses a combination of slopes and bricks to achieve the look. There are some hanging vines on the different sized leaves which looks pretty good. There are also some different colored flowers that are spread out on the habitat. Three chimpanzees that are situated on the jumper tiles but you pretty much put them anywhere. Lastly, there is a stickered plaque for Ethologist Dr. Jane Goodall.
Overall, this is a pretty nice set that LEGO has released to celebrate International Women’s Day 2022. The price point to get it did go up $20 from last year when the Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450) was released but it also does have 76 more pieces which includes the three chimps.
As for the build itself, it doesn’t look too bad for a small jungle layout. The trees are somewhat flimsy and the two smaller ones kept falling apart when I was putting the leaves on.
