In just a few days, LEGO will have a new promotion on the LEGO Shop for the LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417). You’ll be able to get it for free with purchases of $85 or more, while supplies last.
Like with the previous Chinese Zodiac animal GWPs, it comes in a flap box and it also includes an envelope for putting money in as a gift.
The build is a cartoonish style ox that is sitting on a display stand. The ox has articulation on the arms and legs by the way of some ball joints and the head is on a turntable spinner. The ears are on hinges so they are able to move up and down.
The stand has a more autumn feel to it with the color scheme but it works well with the color of the ox. There are a couple of jumper plates to allow it to sit on it but it’s not too secure.
The Year of the Ox (40417) is the seventh one in the Chinese New Year series and it’s an okay build. Ranking it alongside the other animals that have released so far in terms of design, I would place it fifth. Of course, that’s just my opinion and you may have it ranked higher. The Year of the Dog (40235) is still my favorite one mainly because I love the look of it and that is my zodiac animal.
The promotion for this set will run from February 1-14 with purchases of $85 or more, in stores and on the LEGO Shop.
