Create the World in Sainsbury's

©2017 LEGO Group

Forum member messy has discovered set 40256 in his local Sainsbury's in Cambridgeshire.

Entitled 'Create the World' it builds three different vehicles and appears to tie in with a trading card promotion starting soon.


Numbered in the 40xxx series, a range reserved for promotional sets, so it may well exclusive to Sainsbury's. However, it's not in every branch yet: none in my local in Hedge End, or CapnRex101's up north.

It looks as if there's a whole standee full of them in messy's branch.

It comes with two minifigures and is a 3-in-1 set that builds a helicopter, car or boat.

There's also word at HotUKDeals that there's some sort of trading card promotion starting soon entitled 'Create the World' so presumably this ties in with it somehow:

Free Lego Create the World trading cards from Wednesday 3rd May until 16th June.

  • Spend £10 in supermarket/online and you'll receive a pack of 4 cards
  • Spend £5 in convenience and you'll receive a pack of 2 cards
  • There will also be a collectors album available for £2, and a 50p booster pack of 4 cards.
  • There are a total of 140 cards to collect.
  • You will receive the cards up to a maximum spend of £150 (15 packs)

Sounds like a good reason to start shopping in Sainsbury's. We'll let you know when more details emerge, of if you find out anything, let us know.

Seems rather ambitiously named for such a tiny set.

Looks nice, I want! We need more small stand alone vehicles like this...

It does look nice. It'd be nice if they offer it sometime in the U.S.

Neat looking set.

Looks nice but not in my particular alley.

Amen MeganL. I'd be willing to trade 10 WalMarts for 1 Sainsbury's :)

It's a cute set, though for a 3-in-1 set there are quite a few parts that go unused in each of the models. I guess I'm used to Creator sets where the "main" model in a 3-in-1 set will use the full assortment of pieces. That shouldn't make it any less enjoyable for kids though!

Looks like a nice little set. I'll try to pick one up if my local has it.

For anyone wondering, the buildings in the background aren't even close to being a consistent scale

I'm easily getting three of these. All the models look a bit unfinished, but they add up to a rather appealing set

Picked it up today. Excellent price, good selection of accessories, all 3 builds look like what they are meant to be and 2 minifigures to boot. Does well to produce 3 very different vehicles which are all capable of holding both minifigs. Delighted.

Haven't seen any in C.Beds, and i work in one.

Edit: before anyone asks, this is the first I've heard of this and don't know what the trading cards are.

Looks pretty cute. I find it rather funny though that a tiny little 10 stud long car can fit two minifigures, while most City vehicles can't fit two. :P

Is she the happiest minifigure ever - she is having a wonderful time in her little red car!

Reason you won't have seen this about is that it's not supposed to be released until May 3rd, so that store will probably be in trouble!

It's been designed exclusively with and for Sainsbury's, so I wouldn't expect it to be available anywhere else, but I guess never say never.

Great little set - reminds me of the small sets I grew up with...

Skyline L to R:
Statue of Liberty

Bank of China tower

Great Pyramid

I'm pleased to say I have visited several of those places :)
What are the ones I missed?

@EvilTwin first looks like Empire State Building, third looks like Chrysler Building (both in NYC). Not sure about the second one - maybe Sears Tower (Chicago)?

You missed the building in the foreground between Elizabeth Tower and Abraj al Bait. Reminds me of the San Francisco Ferry Building, but it's missing the clock tower.

I had heard about this via a family member who works for sainsburys and was told to keep it secret or else!! Guess I don't have to now!!

@eviltwin
The third one kind of reminds me of the freedom tower, new York. Also, considering sainsbury's only exists in the UK (as far as I can tell) I'm surprised there's only one building from the UK.

@EvilTwin @darkstonegrey
The second one is Shanghai Tower.

I'm impressed they've included life jackets!

Lots of these in Darlington Sainsburys this afternoon.

Odd, but cool.

Oh dear, we have another trading card based line here! In our experience, this means a system-changing, greatly-designed, awesome piece-full, TV show-backed, quite succesful franchise that will eventually fall against Ninjago.
But seriously, this sure seems interesting, wonder how will the sets integrate with each other. I like these small sets, simply because I have a higher chance of getting them here in South America (though I haven't got any new set since round 2015...).

Picked up at Hedge End Sainsbury today super little set.

Was just handed a couple of packs of cards when I did some shopping today. Going to collect them as I always shop in Sainsbury's. Anyone got any swaps?!?
