The LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) promotion is now live on the LEGO Shop and you can get it for free with purchases of $85 or more, while supplies last. Coming in at 193 pieces, it continues the line of the Chinese New Year zodiac animals which started with these particular style and is the 8th one in the line if you don’t count the Year of the Snake (10250) which was a different style.
Similar to previous years, the box uses the front flap design and when you open it up, you also get an envelope to gift to another person if you like.
As for the tiger build itself, it is mostly static with the articulation only coming from the ears and the tail. This year’s build is a little bit more boring than other years but the cute, cartoony style is still there. You also get a small display stand that it can sit on.
Overall the LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) is a fun little set that I looked forward to getting to add to my zodiac animal collection. For 2023, it’ll be the Year of the Rat so I’ll be looking forward to that. This promotion will run until January 27.
