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.The set should be Continue reading
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!
According that Continue reading
The Modular Modern Home is a new Creator set with around four hundred pieces that will be available on retail next summer. As you can see, this 3×1 set features as the main option, a two floor building with straight lines and lots of interesting details to enjoy.
Besides the Modular House, the set shows also a couple of mini-figures (two regular citizens with nice colored suits), a small electric car for just one person, a nice trampoline, a brick built dog and some additional accessories for the guys where a red radio controlled helicopter highlights from the rest.
The building isn’t very big Continue reading
Here is another new great Creator set! The new Space Shuttle Explorer is a 3in1 box with exactly two hundred and eighty five pieces that features a reasonably detailed space shuttle with some nice elements to enjoy and a single astronaut with accessories. The other two building options are a small space station and a lunar vehicle
Considering the main option, I think that the shuttle looks absolutely fantastic. The traditional shapes are all there, the color scheme is also respected and best of all, it is all built with small pieces, which is excellent in terms of building experience.
The cockpit isn’t very big but seems Continue reading
The Poolside Holiday is a new Creator set that will be available next June. This 3 in 1 Building option box features a small house with a garden and a nice pool, an interesting and unusual ping pong table and two mini-figures (a young couple ) with a few accessories (a red guitar, a skate and a couple of rackets).
The house is small but looks rather pretty at the first glance. With a good color combination and a nice balcony on the roof, the guys have also in this area a grill and some prepared meat to enjoy a great meal. Nearby, there is also a chimney which might give the idea of a fireplace in the interior (the available image is not clear at that point).
Outside, the fun continues Continue reading
