Whilst at the Leicester Square Opening a couple of weeks ago, I spotted a 'new' bauble I thought I recognised. I punched the product code into my phone but Brickset had it listed as a 2016 release. I bought a couple as I have had two of each of the others released since 2011.
Despite my visit 2 weeks ago, I've only just got round to unpacking my bags. I came across the new baubles and again was bothered again by their familiarity. It didn't take long to discover that they were of course very similar to those released in 2013, only they weren'the just similar, theyou were the same.#850852

Please, somebody, are they really a duplicate or was my £14 well spent?
Does this happen often? So soon after their initial release?
