I had saw the earlier image just now. It looks very nice.  :wink:

Just to share some information with you guys. Vestas, an global company which is an expert in "Wind Energy" This is a tie-up with LEGO. I feel its an illustration on how our world will benefit by applying and believing its technology to make use of re-useable natural resources.

Hinckley, is it ok for me to share a picture or two on the Vestas Exhibition that happened few months ago in Singapore? Don't worry, it's not anything related "directly" to the Vestas Promo, Wind Power plant.  :wink:

It would appear that Lego wants this beauty kept a secret...=P

Anywho, this is AMAZING. I found pics...somewhere...and...oh wow. This thing is a must-have, and I'll be saddened so much if I can't find it anywhere. I doubt they'd keep a set like this promo, though. Those parts are great for town fans, castle fans, space fans...you name it, that set could be useful for it.

Ohhh goodness...

Er...is this a test? Are you working for TLG now? I'm being watched you know. They're outside my window... :look:

So, no. Not if the set appears in the pictures. And if they're just of the convention, post them in community...

Wow! That's simply amazing. Wow! I can't say more...

Wait, I can. This is such a beatiful set. I sure hope it will be available for us to, like European people.  :tongue:
It's so nice.  :cry_happy: It looks like the real thing, great cottage, great pieces, great van and figures. And the windthing. Wow!

Wow! I searched on Brickshelf and saw pictures that is just amazing! I can only imagine the cost though. Will it be on S@H? Or will it be sold elsewhere?

Cant wait!

Sounds cool but I can't seem to find any of these leaked pics, not even on brickshelf.  Maybe I am not searching under the right phrases.  Oh well.  I guess I can wait patiently.

Wow!  Managed to find a pic on Brickshelf and this is a great set.  Hope it going to be released properly and not just a promo.  One thing though, would it not be quite noisy if you lived in that house  :tongue:

What's so great about the cottage?  I do agree that the generator and van are teh pwnzorz.

That sounds amazing! :oh:
A wind power plant as a Lego set is absolutely awesome and helps the Lego City to get environmental energy. :thumbup:

Regrettably I missed the pics. When browsing through BS I didn't find them, too :cry_sad: . Can someone please post a link or sent me the link/picture via PM :sweet: ? Thanks.

I think the great thing about the cottage is its very reminiscent of classic holiday home type houses that Lego used to make like this one from the late 80s which a lot of people (me included) believe Lego need to make more of.

I now found pics, too. :wink:

That's absolutely  :wub: :wub: :wub:   !
After 10188 Town Plan this is the best City set ever! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:  

I really like the neat landscape with the little hill (there are a bench and some flowers on it, too :blush: ) and this brilliant cottage :oh: :oh: :oh:   !
Great idea with that power function that the wind mill turns and then enable the lights of the cottage  :classic: !

Concerning the City theme I must say: In the last time TLG comes up with one great surprise after the other. :thumbup:

Does anyone know where and when it'll be available (this year I think - otherwise there wouldn't be already pics, would they?) and how much it'll cost (I think about 70 Euros, what do you think?)?
I only hope that it'll be available in Germany, too, otherwise I would be really  :cry_sad: if I am not able to get it since it is a must for every City and environment fan!

I also found the pics, and most of what I can say is:  :oh:  :wub:
It's kind of funny how it's a small house with a gigantic windmill over it, though.

If someone still needs photo, simply email me on josefzizka@post.cz, I will be glad to send you three pictures  :tongue:

I totally agree with you, JSN' date=! :wink:
This house in your link reminds me of the old weekend/holiday cottages ( :wub: ).
Hopefully the cottage in the wind power plant set cottage includes a nice interior, too. The outside looks amazing anyway :oh: !
I really would like to see more apartment holiday homes, too, but how it seems TLG is on its best way towards doing that! :thumbup:
