Pictures and official information
There are now official photos of the “Forest Hideout”, as the group is called in English. These photos now also show the front and back of the box in the best resolution, and among other things, finally clarify the last doubts about the shields with the Forstmen logo: these are clearly printed, so that the whole set works no stickers are required.
The back of the box shows us the official measurements of the set, which are in 19 cm wide and 21 cm high recumbent. This also ensures that the set can be opened and closed so that it can stand on the shelf as a purely decorative object or be turned on from the inside.

Compared to the original
“Hideaway place in the woods” brings back the forest, who in Germany at that time also bears the name Robin Hood been marketed. The free gift is based on the old set with lot number 6054, which went on sale in 1988 under the name Forestmans Hideout and has become a true classic. The new GWP captures many details from the original set: the target, the two shields, the blue roof, the barrel containing the gold coins, and much more.
Choose a brick that is calculated against the purchase value
One of the questions that arose around the initial announcement of the freebie was how LEGO Pick a Brick orders count toward the minimum purchase value – it was announced in The current LEGO store catalog on the home page Excluded. We now have good news for you in this regard: it currently looks like a file Order at Pick a Brick Service It will be possible to reach the minimum purchase value or fill the shopping cart.
Many thanks to our reader Jerichiwho explained to us that an Australian user at Eurobriks has already tested this – we assume this would also be possible in Germany.
The second promotional period in August?
There is preliminary information that the free gift should be available again during the year, i.e. from August 2 to 14, 2022. At least Youtuber Tiago Catarino posted this information in His latest video – As a former LEGO designer and member of the LEGO Ambassador Network, his information may be accurate.
However, LEGO has not yet confirmed this for Europe or Germany and the second availability will of course also depend on the number of sets available. Because as always, this free gift also applies: only while we are out of stock.
The second promotion in August would of course be great for ordering a GWP with the LEGO Knight Castle (10305) or LEGO Galaxy Explorer (10497). However, we cannot guarantee the fact that LEGO Forest Hideout GWP (40567) will appear again in August.
