    Bah! I keep hoping the posts mean info on a new winter set!

    ^ and ^^, I know what you mean!

    Although my response here only continues to add to the shattered hopes. Go figure. 

    The Leaks thread seemed to have mentioned a winter modular log cabin in the creator series. Might be a good one to mod a bit.

    Not bad, but my favourite part of that set is actually that bus!

    dangit! now do I need to buy the train as well? (though I didn't plan on getting the train)
    Really like the looks of this set!

    I have removed the image just to be on the safe side. Usually I would have left it as there are no watermarks but the set is being officially revealed later today so not too long to wait.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    You bet Capn

    Seems this is the Tuesday reveal for this week, seeing as they can't really do much about the Falcon without revealing it, but that's for another, incredibly cluttered thread.

    Wait so what is this set then
  • wardmwardm BelgiumMember Posts: 537
    @mh3490 train station! it includes a vintage bus and (quite) small but good-looking station. 
  • mh3490mh3490 NW Indiana Member Posts: 315
    Interesting... Thanks @wardm any links to a pic 
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    Just Google lego reddit and look for the user name. 

    It's OK. Not my favourite. I'd prefer more shops or homes to go with the rest of the "village" proper. I'll be buying it though.

    Oh boy oh boy ... oh boy oh boy oh boy. OH BOY. This looks amazing!

    Edit: uh oh.. my Lego WV table-next-to-the-christmas-tree can only (barely?) fit a round track, no straights, hmmmm...
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,140
    @sid3windr Off to Ikea to get a bigger table!

    @Adzbadboy look up "lego 2017 winter village set" on YouTube and then set the results to upload date to recent. Some small channels should pop up with the image.
  • AdzbadboyAdzbadboy London, UKMember Posts: 2,615
    I'll wait for the press release before I express my detailed thoughts but I'm not pleased.
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark UKMember Posts: 3,388
    Ok, so I'll admit I was wrong, they're doing a WV Station. It looks reasonable, rather than amazing. The bus looks nice though.
  • blakusdkblakusdk PerthMember Posts: 35
    Looks average at best at first glance, will definitely consider but not too sure 
  • mustang69mustang69 North CarolinaMember Posts: 365
    I would have preferred something a little bit bigger but it does fit in with the theme so I am happy with it and will be getting it.
  • piratemania7piratemania7 New EnglandMember Posts: 2,029
    ^I suspect many will think this and will none the less purchase it.  Especially those who have been collecting every year since the beginning in order to maintain the completeness aspect.  But even if you havent, and perhaps just started in the past year or two you have the rereleased toy shop and a train and now the train station.  It's almost like "starting over".  Either way, I suspect this will be a hit.

    Doesn't look substantial enough for me, I think I'll pass

    Does not look great in my opinion,it will be easy to skip this one. The earlier models where clearly better I think,like the one with the old flatbed truck.

  • CM4SCM4S United StatesMember Posts: 1,282
    That's a skipper. Not too impressive. $80 for that is kinda small
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark UKMember Posts: 3,388
    ...but it's over 900 pieces!
  • mustang69mustang69 North CarolinaMember Posts: 365
    From looking at the leaked pic I'm starting to think I might buy two of them and mirror build one to extend the station. Though I will probably wait until I see the official pictures to make a decision.

    Wow Lego have just announced it on twitter so I guess it wouldn't hurt putting photos up. I'm pleased. People need to remember this is a set that's aimed to be underneath Christmas trees and not meant for AFOLS

    Must have, beautiful little set :)

  • bandit778bandit778 Docking Bay 94. Member Posts: 1,902
    I think it looks quite nice and will definitely be picking one up. 

    I'm more annoyed that I brought #60050 last year purely to give my passengers somewhere to stop in my Winter display and apart from #10254 I have no wish to proceed any further down the black hole of train collecting so I now have a station that has become a bit redundant. :(
  • tamamahmtamamahm Member Posts: 1,938
    While not my favorite winter set, it does fit the theme and I will purchase. I see they are using the new scarf piece as well.

    Does anybody know where the full set image has been posted? I can only find these four smaller detail images.

    I suspect the full batch will be posted later, and these ones were posted early by mistake.

    Given the nature of D2C set leaks being present the week of the press release, my guess is the announcement is this week.

    ^ Well CapnRex did say earlier that it was going to be announced today.... 

    Still a bit underwhelmed by this one. Another couple of minifigs or a more substantial station would have made it appeal to me more

  • tamamahmtamamahm Member Posts: 1,938
    That is what I get for trying to view on my small phone screen. That is not a new scarf piece at all. Bummer. After watching the review, I still agree with my initial view. It is not my favorite set winter set,  but I will buy. I like the look of the building with the clock tower on the side, and some of the printed pieces and it will help round out the look of the train. It is a no brainer set to do after the train. I had been rooting for an x-large ski chalet type set as a balance to the Friends sets that came out.

    Disappointing that that the new scarf piece is not included.  As others have pointed out, the main building is a bit spare.  It looks like a lot of the parts have gone into the construction of the bus.  I do think there are some interesting techniques.  I particularly like the chain link fence with the use of the microphone piece as finials on top of the posts.
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,425
    Overall I like it. Another reason for me to buy the train from last year! Hopefully the train will stay in stock long enough for me to actually get it before the holidays! 

    I could easily see buying a second one at some point to expand it a bit more too.

    Any idea on the release date for this? And any idea when the next double VIP points event will be?

    There's something for everyone in this set! An American-style bus, with Dutch-style (or similar) license plates, British-style road signs and a German (or other country) style post box!

    @Switchfoot55  Pretty sure this is the second set that will be available for VIPs starting Sept 14th (the first being the UCS set). Should be double VIP points in Oct some time just not sure of the exact dates yet.

  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,425

    ^Thanks. I thought that Sept 14th date would likely be It.

    Do Lego Stores typically get last year's WV set in as well?

    My mind is so full of questions as I'm still less than a year out of my dark ages.

    Wow, I love the use of upside-down microphones for the top of the railing!


    They've also used the new '1x1 round plate with bar' element in the coffee machine:
