LEGO Classic Space 40580 Blacktron Cruiser Promotional Set Leaked Online | January 2023

Even though we already had a LEGO Classic Space set as part of LEGO's 90th Anniversary celebrations, the theme is still making a comeback next year too. This is because the previously rumoured Gift With Purchase of 40580 Blacktron Cruiser has been leaked online. The 18+ set was found in a French LEGO Store by Brique Logique who has kindly shared images of the set.

The set is a recreation of 6894 Invader, which was first released in 1987. The new version includes almost 200 more pieces with a total of 356. These help to make the black and yellow cruiser which features a couple of stickers on the bodywork of the Blacktron logo. A different piece is used for the cockpit but still allows enough space for one Minifigure to sit in.

The Minifigure included in the GWP is just a Classic Space Blacktron Minifigure with no unique facial expression or accessory. However, he does come with a little robot/droid which helps him to pull the ship apart when necessary as he explores the LEGO Galaxy.

All of this and more will be available as a GWP from the start of January 2023 with the threshold currently unknown. We'll do a separate post about the set once we have more information in the coming weeks.
