If you missed one of these hard-to-get-to events, or it wasn’t run in your region,then fear not because the might of the LEGO collecting cimmuntiy – in the form of Rebrickable and Brickset have come to the rescue.
Thanks to one of their members, FuddRuckus, they have scans of the full set of instructions (accessible by clicking on the image below) while the bots at Rebrickable have pulled together the inventory list in a format that you can import into Bricklink.
If you are new to the format it is quite simple – all you do is pick up the pieces from the totes, sit down and assemble the limited edition set using instructions fixed to the table. That’s the make part of it. The rest is self-explanatory because LEGO doesn’t ask you to put the pieces back, so you get to keep your build. So, aside from the bricks there aren’t any certification, packaging or instruction booklets to take away with you.
The bottom line is if you have these loose parts in your spare bricks bin then the one you can make at home is equally as official. You just don’t get to participate in the take element of the activity.
