Lego 10252 – The New Volkswagen Beetle?

The rumor is not properly new but just as the time flies, the clues that this might be the next Creator Expert set are getting bigger and bigger, but, unfortunately, there aren’t for now any additional details about the type of version (some speculate that might be a similar model of the 2008 release, others mention the possibility of a new beetle) that will be part of the set.

However in the past days, Brickset has created a set page in advanced models containing some numbers about this possible car: it will retail around the hundred dollars that puts it in a piece count range around the thousand pieces which sounds very interesting!Lego-10252-creator-expert-beetle

Lego 10251 – Brick Bank

The new Creator modular set has been revealed this weekend. The Brick Bank holds the expert stamp and features exactly two thousand and three hundred and eighty pieces that besides the corner building (the first one since the Palace Cinema!) will feature five new mini-figures (a bank manager, secretary, teller, and a mom and child ) with plenty of nice accessories.

But this time it has more than this, the building has a unique and sober design, perfect for a big bank building.lego-10251-brick-bank-creatorInside, it is possible to Continue reading

Lego 10249 – Winter Toy Shop

What might be great news for some will surely be a big disappointment for many others. The new seasonal Lego set, the Winter Toy Shop, is nothing more than a re-release of the 2009 model, Winter Village Toy shop (10199), which despite all its nice details, is personally very disappointing.

I know that it’s a second chance for those who missed the opportunity a few years ago, but I have always a special curiosity every year about this specific release and the last thing that I was expecting was a full copy (with the exception of the price) of this older model.

The set has around nine hundred Continue reading
