I'd definitely be down for a sweet shop/shoppe. I could see modifying a gingerbread house into a sweet shop if that's what it ends up being.
As others have noted the basic house design is good and should be pretty easy for anyone wanting more realistic WV houses to just removed the small amounts of sweetie decorations.
Making sure you have seen this.
Cool. I am good with this. I have so many winter sets that I can not display them all at once. Putting up a bit more holiday North Pole display gives me the chance to focus on a different facet of winter village.
I know you all can find it easily via search, but here's the link to LEGO:
A lot happened in the few hours I was away from checking the leaks page. Though, I feel we can officially say there were no leaks for this years WV as it was released by LEGO. Well played.
As I've previously stated, I'm happy with whatever the set would be. I do feel there are parts of this one that are a bit odd, but overall I like it. As others have stated, I'll have to think through where I'll be putting it in my layout.
For some reason, the part that bothers me the most is the baby stroller...
Are the trans-yellow pointy bits on the star of the tree new?
And do you think their bathtub fills will milk?
If one looks at this set as more of a fantasy "Christmas experience" building, they could set up the outside of this house with a few more tables, maybe a stall or two from the WV Market, and it would become a nice sitting/socializing area.
I do worry that the poor GingerFamily will dissolve the first time they get in that bathtub...
Also I'm loving the "Home Sweet Home" doormat...
Yup. I am also seeing ski chalet style building/restaurant... fireplace outside, picnic tables... so, I think a revamp of it could also be very interesting in that sort of setting.
nice addition to my WV; and quite chuffed actually; this can be the home for the Gingerbreadpeople running my Gingerbread Sweetshoppe across the street (@ingrambricks one). Let’s see!
will probably wait to get it till the Utrecht LS open; hoping for some opening rebates..(aka German-pricing, no BeNeLux extra charge).
I also had an idea to take the Corner Garage set. 10264-1 Remove the two upper levels and place the roof directly on the first floor. This could become a village garage with a little holiday decorations. And that tow truck fits in perfectly.
As others have said, it's easily converted to a normal abode if the gingerbread house doesn't do it for you or even to add housing for the many citizens that have loads of places to shop but nowhere to live.
