    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Pretty cool looking set! I'll probably wait on picking up the gingerbread house until this gift with purchase is available. If I'm remembering correctly they usually have at least one seasonal gift with purchase starting in October

    Like some of you I found the news of a gingerbread house to be somewhat disappointing. I was hoping for a winter town square or village town hall/courthouse or something. However, upon seeing the pictures I'm actually pretty pleased. Its simply a gorgeous set and offers a lot of potential if you want to convert it. It could easily become a candy shop with some simple changes to the interior. Another option is to make it into another cottage by taking off the candy decorations and changing out the candy cane elements. I'm still undecided about how I'll integrate it into my village but I will definitely be buying it.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10267 - Gingerbread House

    I was initially pretty disappointed when the rumors came out about a gingerbread house. I'm happy to see that I was completely wrong. This thing looks absolutely stunning! It should looks amazing next to Santas workshop.

    Looks great! Are you using premade light kits or did you do them yourself? I've been thinking of attempting to light my village as well but its a daunting task. It will be interesting just finding space for new buildings this year. Heres last years village

    Could be as soon as Monday but I doubt it. They probably want to ride the hype of the new UCS set for a bit.

    Its only a bit annoying. We can be patient right!?! Until then there are Frozen 2 set leaks on IG if anyone's interested

    Exactly. Keeping my fingers crossed as well but I'm pretty much expecting a gingerbread house any day now

    So far they are being pretty tight lipped about things. We've gotta get something soon though...at least I hope!

    I think the one commonly referenced in this thread is from 2014 by Swan Dutchman. Mainly people are poking fun at TLG - insinuating that they intentionally don't approve sets so they can simply steal the idea and come out with it later. I think most people understand this is not the reality but its fun to throw on our tin foil hats sometimes.

    I don't think we can assume we are getting a large carousel just because the creator expert one is going out of production. (although it sounds like it would be cool) Did the store employee actually say that its a carousel? As far as I know the employees often don't know anymore than we do, many time less

    I think an open back gingerbread house is still a possibility. I would likely require a departure from the classic gingerbread house and be something more elaborate. I'm thinking something with multiple stories kind of like a small doll house
