    Nice, with Dark Red Masonry brick too. So that will be one of the holiday promo sets that will take either 75 or 99 USD to get?

    It is TOO early in the year to already fret about the December freebies...

    It almost looks like it's designed to have Santa and the tree spin around. I wonder if the little handle below the small door activates a spinning mechanism when pulled?

    Or it pumps air to make the round white tiles fly around? 

    You heard it here first!  Haha

    Is that a light royal blue flower I see? That is an exciting new color for scenery/gardens

    That is really good.
    I think everybody and his dog, might be needing more than one of these?
    Including me. :)

    I bet they will run out of stock before the promo period ends.....

    We don't usually see final images this far in advance for Christmas exclusive sets right? Pretty cool regardless.

    Looks good, will there be more than one Christmas set, like the last few years?

    I have a PDF of the instructions so will post them later. There's no movement other than a drawer at the bottom that slides in and out.
    Womp womp!

    Ugh, I missed out on the gingerbread house and can't justify $30+ on the secondary market. The Santa snow globe is a nice ornament, but I'd prefer another building for my nascent winter village.

    ^ Many thanks, inside of the draws are a odd colour as they could have kept it the same but other than that really nice.

    Never thought of a drawer being there until I saw the instructions.  Great set with some nice parts.

    It's coming out in March and they'll do a remake for December :P

    Maybe they have this set all ready and decided to publish the picture this early because of the bad reactions towards the latest Winter Village remake?

    This looks lovely, is it supposed to be something you leave out a little present for santa in or something?
    I'm slightly freaked out by the 'throw in 14 1x1 round tiles' instruction.  They're going to be all upside down and everything; upsetting me over the holiday period :(
    (I dread to think how bad the 'lego logo aligning' people will be!)

    ^ worst yet get all the tiles right side up, and then someone picking it up and shaking it like a real snow globe.

    I was wondering how they placed all those little 1x1 round tiles, then I realised that they didn't :-P

    Unsurprisingly the instructions were released erroneously so grab them before they are removed if you intend to.
  • chrisalddinchrisalddin UKMember Posts: 2,860
    erroneously ?
    i dont know how you are using this word here?
    are you saying someone when and goofed?
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 6,440
    Yes and not for the first time. I see they are still there, though, as I type.

    Luckily I still had them cached so I downloaded a copy just for the heck of it.
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,349
    Yeah, I grabbed a copy just in case.
  • HokieJoe99HokieJoe99 Member Posts: 348
    I just looked at the instructions for the first time just now so I did not have them in cache, nor did I spend any cash to see them.
