I love this set and I really like the brick built saxophone since I am an amateur sax player.  I can't help but think what that banjo/sax combo band sounds like.. :)

The part that intrigues me is the piece that joins the two tap bases together in the sax. Like the looks of this set.

Love it!!! Can't wait to buy it! I have Winter Village Bakery. I don't have Toy store yet and want to buy it too but can't find it on Lego.com. Did they stopped selling Toy Store already!?!? I hope not! :(

As somebody else already said, it's a plate with clip light. It's quite easily visible in the third image from the bottom.

Great set!
I really like the snowshoes, they've probably been around before but I have never seen them.

Wow! Thanks for the news, Hinck! I didn't get the first two Winter Village buildings (or the Winter Train, for that matter), but I might just have to get this one!

To start off, the minifigures are fantastic! I'm really glad to see that orange ponytail piece (from PC) being released in more sets, and the medium blue torso print is beautiful! :thumbup: The set itself also contains lots of post office-y details that would be perfect for making a non-winter postal service MOC.

I notice that the interior of the building is tiled; were the other Winter Village buildings tiled as well?

I couldn't find the Toy Store on the Lego site, either.  I think they've officially stopped selling it.  Plenty of them available on Amazon and other retailers, though, and still at a normal price.

I'm really interested in the Winter Village sets now.  They don't exactly fit the things I usually collect, but they seem really good value for money and have enough unusual parts that they would be well worth buying.  I could see "building the Winter Village" becoming a popular holiday tradition in our family.

Damn you, LEGO!! Why must there always be so many sets I want to buy?!?

The little red truck is very nice, but does it have a rear door ? :wink:
The building will be a great addition to the winter village......I guess the next one could be a general store or an early 20th century gas station.....just a guess. :wink:
What's the price in Aussie dollars ? :look:

Did your finger have a spasm attack when you clicked reply? :tongue: 4 posts of the same thing.

I'm excited to get this. I've seen those snowshoes in MOCs before, but this will be my first pair. :grin:

The picture of the sticker sheet confirms that the Banjo is most definatly a sticker.

Yes. The only printed parts are a clock, a circular grate used for the truck, and loads of letters.

And my many attempts to put the damn thing on the banjo correctly for the Brick Expo showing also confirmed it!

Loads was an understatement...

Well I thought it was a saxaphone, but LEGO is all about the imagination.:wink:


Thanks Sieggy, was great to meet up with you at Brick Expo, and then what a treat to co-build one of the first copies in the world with you!

Yeah, it was good. We'll have to do it again... but I'll rant more about that later in the relevant topic!  :blush:

It would be cool to see someone set up a scene with all the winter sets. I only have the toyshop right now.

I've always really loved the Christmas exclusives and this set is probably my favorite out of the three. I really love the unique contours of the roof and the lamp post, and the inclusion of the musicians is a great touch. This set has a lot of personality. It's only August but at this rate I'm going to start thinking about Christmas a little earlier this year.
