40491 lego year of the tiger 2022 1

Today we are quickly interested in the content of the LEGO set 40491 Year of the Tiger, a small box of 193 pieces offered currently and until January 27, 2022 if the stock allows it from 85 € of purchase. It is now a tradition since 2013, the manufacturer celebrates each year the animal in the spotlight in the Chinese zodiac with a small promotional product and it is therefore the turn of the tiger to go through the LEGO grinder in 2022.

The animal and its base are quickly assembled and the result is rather pleasant to watch. It is as usual a very cartoon interpretation of the animal but we obtain a construction perfectly matched with those of previous years. Despite the compactness of the model, this tiger still has some moving parts: the tail and the ears. The head is fixed, it cannot be oriented to allow for example a three-quarter presentation as was the case on the buffalo in the set 40417 Year of the Ox offered last year. For the rest, this tiger looks great, it does not look too much like a cat and the finish of the back of the construction is very correct.

As every year, the product includes a "red envelope" which allows you to respect tradition: in Asia people offer money to their loved ones on the occasion of the New Year celebrations and you can therefore also comply with this custom. thanks to the envelope provided which is not red on the outside but whose interior is the traditional color. The box even allows you to personalize the thing with a label on which it is possible to indicate the name of the recipient and the origin of the gift. Only problem, the envelope being in the box, you will first have to open the set to deposit the money and offer everything afterwards. The flap packaging is well resealable, but there will always be the cut-out transparent sticker.

It's not the product of the year, but if you already have the seven animals already offered so far by LEGO, you can hardly ignore this one knowing that the entire collection is based on the same principle. of "cartoonization". The minimum purchase amount required to be offered this small box valued after LEGO at €9.99 is €85 this year, as was already the case last year to obtain the set 40417 Year of the Ox. In 2020 it was enough 80 € to get a copy of the set 40355 Year of the Rat.

Note: The set presented here, provided by LEGO, is as usual involved. Deadline fixed at 24th January 2022 next at 23pm.
