LEGO City Crook's Hideout 60278: Officially Cancelled

It seems that following an official statement from The LEGO Group, the LEGO City Crook's Hideout (60278)—which initially appeared in the back pages of the Friends Heartlake City Shopping Mall instructions manual, and subsequently the January Shop@Home Catalog—has been cancelled. The Official statement reads as follows:

“With LEGO CITY, we always aim to represent the reality of the world in a way that is fun, positive and appropriate for kids. With this in mind, we have decided not to launch this product as we no longer feel it is in keeping with the values of the LEGO CITY brand.”

This is not the first time TLG has made a last-minute decision in cancelling a product that misaligns with their company values, as many will recall the late-stage cancellation of the LEGO Technic Bell Boeing Osprey (42113)—which was also cancelled under similar circumstances, prompted by the German Peace Society who noted the Osprey's military ties as cause for concern.
