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 available next June with a retail price around the two hundred dollars. Have a look at the official press release, pictures and designer video:
