I talked to US lego today and it was confirmed by 2 differnet people that this set will NOT be in the US, and only sold in the UK and Europe.
Welcome Vamproe and thanks for the heads up. I’m assuming they were referring to the rest of the world
It probably has something to do with US-Specific warning labels, language requirements, etc. All that fine print we don't ever look at.
Those prominently positioned US warning signs that small parts are dangerous to children under 3 bla bla bla ruin the Lego Box design. It should be readily apparent to any parent any way, additionally a large number of consumers depose of the packaging in an environmentally responsible way after opening the box.
Hey, here is a novel idea too. Make it available to Australia too...
It probably will be because we don’t have the US-Specific warning labels.
Any dismay directed to Lego
The problem probably lies with the US regulators/government for requiring such prominent signage on Lego box's in addition to what is required for the rest of the world.
