FYI, we just received word from Lego that the SPIKE release date has been pushed to early 2020 (so it will NOT be available for the “City Shaper” Season).
According to the email:
The release time frame for [Lego’s] newest product has been adjusted to early 2020. LEGO Education holds itself to an exceptionally high standard for quality in everything they do, and they want to create the biggest possible impact on the students learning with their products. With that in mind, they’ve decided to adjust the expected launch of SPIKE Prime to early 2020 to ensure the new product meets that high bar.
