Lego 10259 – Winter Village Station

Here is absolutely one of my next acquisitions and probably the one that I’m more excited for. The new winter Village is a new Creator Expert Railway Station with around nine hundred pieces and plenty of nice winter details and full Christmas spirit, so typical of these seasonal sets.

The set, as you can see, shows a beautiful railroad station with four straight track pieces and a level crossing with two barriers, a yellow vintage bus, five mini-figures – a pleasant quantity for a creator set –   that include a bus driver, a barista, a grandmother, a child and a ticket agent, and a couple of always useful trees.Lego-10259-Winter-Village-Station-creator-expert-5

The station is absolutely beautiful. With a Continue reading

Lego Carousel officially revealed

Lego has just officially revealed the new Creator Expert set, the Carrousel (10257), a fairground masterpiece with two thousand six hundred and seventy pieces that includes also seven mini-figures (a ride operator, mom, dad, boy, girl, grandmother and a granddaughter) and a sales ticket stand.

And I definitely love it. The carrousel includes among other things five brick built animals (a swan, an elephant, a tiger, a flamingo and a frog.) which move up and down just as the big carrousel rotates.  Unfortunately the power functions are not included which is an extra cost to extract all the possible fun and playability from the carrousel.lego-carrousel-10257-creator-expert-5The set should be Continue reading

Lego 10256 – The first impressions of the new Fairground Carrousel

A picture of the new Creator Fairground Carrousel has just appeared in June’s Lego store calendar, giving total consistency of a recent rumor that mentioned the release of a new Creator Fairground set. It joins a great collection, composed by the Fairground Mixer – a 2014 model- (10244) and the Ferris wheel – a 2015 set – (10242).

The picture isn’t the best but it looks quite clear that it will be a shorter version of the Grand Carrousel (10196) and it will feature besides the carrousel, seven or eight mini-figures as well as a small stand. Can’t wait to see it with the power functions!lego-10257-Fairground-Carrousel-creator
