LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure and Other August GWPs

Update (7/27 | 2:00pm EST):

With the release of the August 2021 LEGO Store Calendar, we now have confirmation that the LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure (40487) Gift With Purchase (GWP) is going to be made available to LEGO VIPs beginning August 1st to August 3rd, before becoming widely available to all LEGO customers from August 1st to August 29th—while supplies last of course. The purchase threshold is, as was rumored, going to be a minimum purchase of $200 (USD). You can view the full calendar on Shop@Home here.

There will also be the addition of three other promotional giveaways in August: Masters' Book of Secrets by DK Printing, which will be given away with LEGO purchases over $60 between 8/1-8/31; and also Shang-Chi and the Great Protector Set, which will be given away 8/1-8/15 with LEGO Marvel purchases over $40 (USD); and lastly, the LEGO Super Mario™ Fuzzy and Mushroom Platform Expansion Set, which will be given away 8/16-9/05 with purchases of select LEGO Super Mario™ products over $40 (USD).

Original Post (7/20 | 2:00pm EST):

LEGO Ideas Dream Holiday Sailboat (40487) is now expected to be given away as a Gift With Purchase on Shop@Home in August. The set was the Grand Prize Winner in 2020's LEGO Ideas BUILD THAT HOLIDAY INTO THAT HOLIDAY! competition. The set was submitted by the LEGO Ideas user YC_SOLO and was originally called Sailing Ship Adventure, and it went on to receive the majority votes over fourteen other projects. The goal of the competition was to create a Summer-themed set that would be given away at a later date.

There are no Official Images of the set just yet, but as with the previous LEGO Ideas GWP—Vintage Car (40448)—we don't anticipate the design varying too greatly from the Official Set. The GWP promotion will begin on August 1st for LEGO VIP members, before becoming more widely available on August 4th. The set will contain around 200 pieces, which is roughly a $20 value, and surprisingly enough the price threshold for the GWP will be $200 | €200—which is the highest cost threshold for a non-set-specific GWP since recent memory.
