First Look at the Ray the Castaway (40566) LEGO GWP Set to be Launched October 1st

Ray the Castaway (40566)

It is not news that LEGO does not offer all winning LEGO Ideas submissions as sets to be purchased. However, a good number end up as GWPs (gifts with purchase) fans get when they purchase LEGO products within a particular price range. This is not to say that having your product Idea offered as a GWP when you win a LEGO Ideas contest will not be considered exposure if you aim to be a LEGO Ideas builder. One of these creative winning ideas submissions is the Ray the Castaway (40566) set to be offered as the next LEGO GWP.

The winning product idea submission was constructed for the 2021 “Do You Want to Go to the Seaside?” contest by DadiTwins, a member of the Ideas 10k club.

The simple yet brilliant set shows Ray on an isolated island with his pet parrot. On the island is a set of palm trees and a makeshift hut where Ray resides. Also featured on the set is Ray’s reliable raft and his fishing rod, which he uses in fishing as his means of survival on the island. Here is the original submission for the LEGO Ideas contest:

LEGO is said to offer the Ray the Castaway (40566) set as its official GWP on October 1 for sets within the range of $120 in the US. Luckily for fans, multiple sets will be released within the period the GWP launches, so it should not be challenging to get.
