    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    So, this is it. This year's WV set is finally revealed and I'm like quite a number of people here kind of disappointed the rumours were true. Although the more I look at it, the more I like it. I'm not sure how I am going to integrate it in my current village, since I recently added the Ski Resort (good set and fun to build btw). Maybe I will enalrge the "fantasy" section alonside Santa's workshop or something like that. The design is pretty nice, a few exclusive parts, but the minfigs come on, the baby is a joke, I would have preferred a real 3 minifig to this... Let's see how it goes when I receive it.

    This Xtra polybag is nice but what about the amount of pieces in it? It's a shame to have such a low amount in a polybag when you remember the past year's Xtra polybags... Still no peak at the official Winter Village set, this is weird. I hope we'll have something soon, September is close by, now. Only a few days remaining and the wait is over.

    Same here! Can't wait for the pictures to be available and finally decide if I'm on board or not.

    Well it seems that there's not much hope left for the ones who didn't want this year's set to be a Gingerbread House. I would have preferred something else too, but I'm sure we'll find a way to include it in our Winter Village, one way or another. I'm looking forward to seeing the first pics of the set. The sooner the better to try and see how it can fit in my own village.

    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Since I've been searching for the best deals to complete my WV collection (I only started earlier this year), I would be more than happy with a release of any of the oldest sets starting from 10235 - WV Market and previous. But sincerely for a special anniversary like that, I would expect something a bit more exceptional than a re-edition... I completely agree with you Feng-huang0296, something like the Assembly Square sould be perfect! I expect a big building and several smaller ones to complete the set. I find it rather curious that we never got something as basic as a ski-related building, or a luge platform with many minifigs fighting with snowballs (something big, not just the mini size walls we got in a few polybags). I would like to buy a ski lodge along with a small ski / luge track. Does that sound wintery enough?

    Oh my I'm so enthusiastic about this Disney steam train rumour! Finally Goofy and Pluto minifigs which are long overdue... If this ends up being real, between this year's WV, the SW UCS, the Disney Castle which I have been wanting for over 6 months now but still haven't bought, and this train + station, I'm gonna be broke for X-mas :D Broke but happy!

    I remember this Ideas set that was proposed a few years ago by Swan Dutchman : https://ideas.lego.com/projects/7a204071-7d33-4cfd-9306-15f1cdbfb798/updates#content_nav_tabs The piece count is 1424, so basically fairly close to the actual rumored piece count. This year being the 10 year anniversary of this series, I would like very much to be surprised!

    I have to say I'm a bit disappointed by the pictures of the 60203 - Ski resort set. It doesn't look snowy enough IMO, but it's still a City set, not a dedicated Winter Village one, so I guess it's OK... If I decide to buy it, maybe I will reuse some of the elements in my own WV. Regarding rumours I read in this thread, I would be a bit disappointed if this year's set were a gingerbread house but I would wrap my mind around it anyways. I started collecting WV sets earlier this year and some old sets are just crazy insanely expensive on eBay or Bricklink. I would have been pleased with a big reedition of an old set like the WV Market but it's still quite new (released "only" in 2013, maybe not old enough to be re-edited). Still IMO, I don't think a 1400 something brick set with very small elements such as decoration for a GB House would satisfy me as an anniversary set. I guess we can only wait and see in the next few weeks if we have more details to discuss about.
