:p . Sorry don't know myself.
#10245 was unveiled August 9th 2014, so we should have news about 2015's set around the same time.
Only if it comes with a holiday sausage. :)
Either way, I'll end up buying it. I have all of them so far. They are one of two guaranteed purchases every year. Although, I've been disappointed with the most recent years. Hopefully the next one will get back to their roots. Smaller scale, better price, fun details.
I am not convinced yet it is just a remake of the toy shop. I think it is also different doing a remake for a child like another police station, versus a remake of this line, where your buyers are probably AFOLs, adults, families, etc.
Maybe a Sleigh Service Station... or a Reindeer Stable.

But we have had Tree delivery and tree selling sets before, so maybe we need a Winter Train station for the Winter Train which arrives next year?
Personally I'd like an Inn, downstairs dining room (to basically be a pub but avoiding the alcohol issue) with a couple of small guest rooms upstairs.
If you look at classic Christmas Village models there are a lot of things that LEGO could do without repeats.
As for a Winter Village Train, while I'd love that, I don't see it happening. To really fit with the Winter Village line I think it would need to be a station and the train. in one set that would likely be a bit pricey for the WV line, so they could split it across two sets, but how would that work? Would they put out two additional sets this year and still keep Santa's Workshop out too, or break the normal cycle and just have two new sets. Or would they bring out one this year and the next year, how would the overlap work? They can't really sell the station without the train being available. As others have mentioned there was the Holiday Train prior to the Winter Village line, it was out while I was in dark ages, but I've been lead to believe it wasn't brilliantly received.
It's not to say a Winter Village Tain won't happen, but I wouldn't get my hopes up for one, better off waiting for another steam train set to come out that you could customise into a WV train yourself.
I hope they don't rehash sets etc. but not too sure where they might go. We will see in a few months.
Showing any kind of favour to any individual religion could lead to people complaining about showing favouritism. I believe this is why the line is called Winter Village as opposed to Christmas Village - which is the more traditional name.
I wouldn't mind a Winter Village Church, but I understand LEGO's reluctance to go there.
well, it's not like they can do a mosque for a Christmas theme lol.
actually is the taj mahal a muslim building?
Not to go all "Eurobricks" , but don't we already have threads for discussing what we'd like the Winter Village line to include and the issues about religion?
As far as a church, I'd certainly welcome it. I haven't been to church in a while though..
That may seem like that's a heavy price for the next "single entry" into the winter village line, but given that the theme is already 6-years mature and popular, it seems like lucky number 7 is a good time to inject such a set into the mix. Lego has clearly indicated that they aren't afraid to dive into a $200 set for something you wouldn't otherwise expect (Ninjago's new temple).
Me, I think it would FLY off the shelves.
i would love for them to do a winter village train but ultimately I'd rather have the view that it won't happen and be pleasantly surprised if it does.
actually, even a train sounds a bit far fetched for a village. there could be horse carriages.
That's good enough for me.
I've just remembered something. lego klick number 5
does it look like a church in the background? doesn't really look offensive btw.
