You’ll remember that last week we posted news that a Canadian retailer would be stocking this set, indicating that it isn’t going to be a direct-to-customer (D2C) exclusive. A close look at the images above shows clear LEGO branding on the shelves and the wall above it, but with the strict requirements LEGO puts on its retailers it isn’t entirely possible to determine if this location is the LEGO Brand Store in Warsaw. But it sure looks like it.
While this isn’t entirely an officially official reveal it’s as close as it comes – and apparently good enough for all the Recognised LEGO Fan Media sites to jump on despite having ignored any reports carried by others in fear of loosing their vaunted status (and their free sets).
Expect to see an official announcement – likely going out to Club 75192 members first – on April 8th with the release of the store calendars on April 9th.
