LEGO have officially revealed their 2015 Creator Winter Village set. The Winter Toy shop comes with 898 pieces and will retail for $79.99. It comes with tons of accessories, and loads of little minifig toys, to bring happiness and cheer to minifig girls and minifig boys!
If this set looks familiar, that’s because it’s incredibly similar to the Winter Toy Shop set 10199 that was released in 2009 (which is now going for around $250!). It’s definitely been updated and there are a few new elements, but the good news is that since these sets historically sell out and rarely reissued, you can now scoop this set up to complete your Lego Winter Village.
A few of the new elements include new printed signs, and happier-looking minifig faces.
Just look at all these jolly minifigs!
If you’re a LEGO VIP member you can purchase this set on September 16th. For everyone else, it goes on sale in October. Here’s the official press release from LEGO:
Welcome to the Winter Toy Shop! The holiday season has arrived and the toymaker is busy finishing off his latest creations! Outside, children ski and snowboard, and a freshly built snowman sparkles in the light that shines from the toyshop tower. Help decorate the huge tree that stands at the center of the square, play with the curious kitten on the cozy wooden bench or join in with the carolers beneath the ornate streetlamp. This charming set also features a ladder, trees in various sizes, jack-in-the-box, a toy biplane, helicopter, rocket, train, race car, truck, robot, tugboat, teddy bear and a wrapped gift. Have fun building this enchanting winter wonderland! Includes a snowman and 8 minifigures with assorted accessories: a male caroler, female caroler, a woman, 2 men, 2 boys and a girl.
Personally, I love all the Lego Winter Village sets, and I’ll probably be buying this in September. Plus, these sets are always a good investment, because they tend to appreciate in value due to their limited availability. What can I say? Some people collect art, I collect Lego.
