    Winter Village: Holiday Cafe

    My Entry for the "Winter Village" Contest. For my entry I decided to create a Holiday Cafe Moc for Santa's Village. People come from all around the world to experience the great tasting Coffees and Hot Chocolates from Santa's Village. More pictures will be available on my MocPages account; http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/101914 and my Flickr account; https://www.flickr.com/photos/120920417@N06/ I hope you guys enjoy this, please leave a comment, Thanks :) Sorry, but I'm not sure how big the photos actually are, if this is a violation of the "Winter Village" rules please let me know and also please tell me how to identify how big a photo is.

    Brick Flick: Santa's Snack

    From the archives: The first Christmas video that I made. It was edited with Windows Movie Maker and recorded with a camera that used videotapes.
  7. When I saw the release pictures of this little christmas set I really needed to have it. It fits perfectly with the other christmas sets, and I just have a weakness for christmass trees. So, lets see how this free set holds up! This is my first review made, and english is not my native language so please bear with me! Theme: Seasonal Holiday Set name: Christmas Tree Stand Set Number: 40082 Price: $9,99 / Free Pieces: 115 Minifigures: 2 Year of release: 2013 The Box: The box has a really nice design, featering a nice scene where the lady buys a christmas tree. A big red stamp display that this is a 2013 exclusive set, which makes it that much better. The back features the 2 limited edition sets from this year, the christmas tree stand and the car. They both fit together perfectly and make for a nice play set on its own. The sides of the box are very standard, the bottom shows again the red stamp and the top displays the salesman with a broom at actual size. Nothing special here! Inside the box: Inside the box we find 3 seperate bags. Can't wait too open them! The instructions are very clear and simple to follow, with a nice part call-out on every step and a relaxing blue background. Inside the bags: The first bag, with a brand new purple hat! I think its really pretty and fits the winter style perfectly. Also some lego money, which I cant get enough off. The second bag, nothing special here. The third bag, with some lovely christmas trees and dark red tiles. And all of the parts in one big collection! Minifigs Here are the 2 lovely minifigures, and the lady of course with her brand new purple hat. I also really like the scarf of her. And now, the actual build. We start off with this small tool rack, I think it would have been fine without the bricks under it, but this works great too. The next thing we build is -of course- the stand where the shopkeeper sells his trees from. I really love the design, although I think the bright red tiles on the roof are a bit too vibrant, but I love the little lights under it and the decoration. Its also really small, only 4 studs wide. And to finish it all off, the railings are attached to both sides of the building so the shopkeeper can fence of his christmas trees! There is also some lovely decoration placed on it. Finished! And there we have it, our end result after we have placed the christmas trees inside the fence. Woo! I really love the look of it, its small yet has a lot of playability. And with a few other christmas sets combined. It fits perfectly with the other sets! Don't really pay attention to the lay out, I set it quickly up for the picture. Final comments: This is my first review I've made, so I would love to have some feedback! English is not my native language so writing lots of text is hard for me, and there might be lots of errors in the review. Sorry for that! Design & Colour scheme – 9/10 (I really love the design, and the colours just fit perfectly with the christmas theme and all the other sets.) Minifig – 8/10 (Just your basic minifigs, but I really love the purple hat so a little higher) Parts – 8/10 (I love getting the christmas trees, and ofcourse the purple hat, apart from that there is not a lot going on.) Playability – 8/10 (I love that it has a lot of playability for such a small set, so thats really cool.) Build – 7/10 (Really simple, so nothing special.) Price – 10/10 (Its free! I would almost like it to give it a higher point for this) Overall: 8.3, Really good!

    Winter Village: Winterville Station

    Winterville Station For years, Lego trains have circled the base of my Christmas Tree. More recently, official Winter Village sets have sprung up to join them, but the train never had anywhere to stop. So, this year, the mini-folk of Winterville finally have a train station to call their own. The station is a little bigger than the existing kits in the line, but then it's a train station, I'd expect it to be a little bigger than a toy store or a bakery. It looks pretty good next to the official kits and has the same sort of "feel," that's really what I was after. I don't usually do much at Mini-figure scale and Christmas Kitsch is definitely outside my normal comfort zone, but hey, it's the holidays, why not mix things up a bit. Here we have all hands on deck, clearing the recent snow from the platform to make way for the presents waiting to be loaded into the mail car. The far end of the platform features more lights, seating areas and a station clock. In keeping with the Winter Village style, we have a separate little mini-build to pad out the area. I figured all that snow they cleared from the platform had to go somewhere, why not build a snowman? In keeping with the Winter Village HGD (Hospital Gown Design - i.e. open in back) style, it's interior is readily accessible. I was shooting for something spacious without being boring, functional yet homey. The inside features a ticketing desk an open waiting area with clock and fireplace. And yes, Computer Geek Guy has just finished reading a copy of the Daily Prophet. Of course, what would a Winter Village set be without a light brick? In this build, I decided to hide the brick in the hearth to light the fiery bits in the fireplace from below. I'm not a great photographer, but trust me, it looks neat in person. The dark gray plate visible in the base of the open sidewall is the switch for the light. It sits flush when the fireplace is on and protrudes half a stud or so when it's off. I hope you've enjoyed your tour of the the new Winterville Station. Happy Holidays. EDIT: In re-reading the contest thread, I realized I'd posted too many photos. This has now been corrected. For the curious, the additional shots can be found here. EDIT: Or here (when MOCPages is acting up)

    REVIEW: 3300014 2012 Christmas Set

    3300014 Christmas Set 2012 Release year: 2012 # of parts: 109 # of figures: 4 RRP: GBP 9.99* * Once again, although this set was given away with a minimum spend of GBP 50 during the Brick Friday event(s) and S@H's online promotion, the set was valued at GBP 9.99 on the receipt. Promotional image Welcome to another SilentMode review, and this time we're going to be taking a look at this year's promotional "holiday" set. Almost a year ago we came across the infamous Holiday Set 1 and 2, as well as the impromptu birth of EvilMode. This year's "holiday" set is more expensive, comes in a larger box and has slightly more parts than its previous counterparts. How will it fare? The Box The first thing you'll see is that the box design screams "exclusive", if not "premium". It has a really nice colour and design to it, and like last year's sets it matches the general look of their in-store promotions (except not so much green). I almost don't want to open the box. Back of the box On the other hand, the back - while keeping the luxury colour scheme going - is a little plain. It does, however, show the other side of the sleigh, while letting the young girl and boy switch places. Sides of the box The long sides of the box have the usual information about where the sets were assembled and manufactured. Chinaphobes will be pleased to know that they had nothing to do with this set - or so we're told. Also there's a small reminder: outside of the Brick Friday event(s) and the current online promotion, you can't get hold of these (unless someone kindly sells one to you). The short sides have the obligatory reminder, in three hundred different languages, that there's a choking hazard once the box is opened. Interestingly enough, although I may have missed it before, this is the first time I recall seeing a "sad onion" on a box of LEGO. The Contents Probably the most noticeable thing in this set is the inclusion of the prancing horse, which doesn't quite have the impact of the 1x1 round tiles that made their debut in Holiday Set 2 (you know, the piece that automatically made that set better than Holiday Set 1). Other than that, there are two bags of parts, the crisp instructions folded in two, and a very hard to see 4x12 plate in White. White parts These are a few of the parts in White available in this set, most notably the 4x12 plate and the three quarter circles. Red parts Interestingly enough I've spent most of the year getting rid of my Red parts, simply because I don't have a use for them. This set ironically features most of its parts in Red, mostly for the sleigh. Greenery + lamppost For anyone who couldn't get hold of the previous three Winter Village sets, you'll be pleased to know that the set comes with a black lamppost. I like these, although I've not really put them to any use yet. But besides that, there are a few very useful plant parts included in the set, perhaps just not enough of them! Watch out for that leafy part (at the front) next year, where it will be making an appearance in this year's Olive Green (and perhaps other colours). Best of the rest For the cheese slope lovers we get nine of them in white, as well as a few in Dark Bluish Grey and Red, and even a couple of doubles in Red. We also get two transparent minifigure heads for the lamppost, but sadly not much in the way of tiles. The minifigures Very generously, for a set this size, we're given four minifigures to play with. Of the most value are the torsos for the children: the Bright Green jacket only appearing in last year's City Advent Calendar as well as this year's Winter Village Cottage, and the Medium Blue jacket appearing in the Winter Village Post Office as well as the Cottage. Both higly desirable torsos in my book. I can't help but be a little concerned - and this is something I had an issue with in the Winter Village Cottage - that whomever at LEGO decided to give a young girl boobies. Le cheval This is actually the first time I've gotten hold of the new minifigure-scale horse, which was introduced in the Lord of the Rings theme. For those who don't know: this new horse has the ability to rear (stand on its hind legs), while still looking similar to the old-style horses. One other difference is that both the neck and back legs "snap" into place. Anyway, the set makes it possible to display the horse on its own, by providing a 1x2 brick to place inside it (as shown above). For the assembly of the set - the horse pulling the sleigh - we require two 1x2 plates mounted on top of the grey piece, as shown here. One issue I have with this feature is that the set only includes one 1x2 tile, which means it will have to be switched between the plates and brick. This means a greater likelihood of losing the tile, resulting in an incomplete horse, if we're not careful. The Build The sleigh In a twist of events, we're actually going to build the main part of the set first. The base of the sleigh is the 4x6 Red plate, with some other smaller plates to get the shape going. I've actually attached the front two plates incorrectly in this picture(!). Because I was too lazy to disassemble the horse from the previous photo, here's the next stage of the sleigh attached to the horse. If it wasn't so unstable, it might actually be fun to ride this way. This assembly, using the Technic parts and a Bright Green flower plate, form the decorations for the sleigh. Possibly the equivalent of "go faster" stripes. We're virtually done with Red as the finishing touches to the sleigh are added. The horse is starting to buckle under the pressure - we'd better add some supports! Well here they are. While it may have been too much to bring back the large ski parts, these look a little too basic for my tastes. What are the alternatives though? Here's the complete sleigh along with a very relieved horse. I've actually forgotten to add one part at this point, namely the 1x2 Red panel that separates the passengers from the driver. As pictured in the set, here's a rather pleasant vision of a one-horse open sleigh, complete with privileged single mother and child, and a driver cracking a whip. There really must be something going on with the presence of whips in Winter sets: stay tuned for the 50 Shades of Light Bluish Grey special edition. Scenery All of the White plates and cheese slopes - as well as the brick - go into making this patch of scenery to accompany the sleigh. Using the remainder of the Reddish Brown parts, this tried and tested bench design is assembled. Lamppost In addition to the tradition of including different lamppost designs with each Winter Village set, we have another one here. This time we have two Black SNOT bricks stacked on top of each other on the lamppost, with one of them serving as supports for the lamps. The other SNOT brick is uses to suspend the leafy plant part, used to represent a holly leaf - complete with holly berries - on the lamppost. It's an all right design, but may have benefited from a single SNOT brick with four studs instead of the two with two studs. Both the lamppost and the bench sit on top of the snow patch, and all that's left is to add... ...the little girl and the two small trees. The Complete Set Here's the entire scene, and it really is a complete scene. One can imagine the rows of houses, maybe a frozen pond and some trees surrounding it, in the background. Leftovers Quite a few spare parts are left, but nothing incredibly ground breaking apart from the Bright Green flower plate. The 1x2 Reddish Brown brick is a leftover from the horse, assuming it's carrying the sleigh. The instructions Other than the nice-looking covers, which match the box art, the instructions look exactly the same as any other set - though they match the yellow border, blue background design of larger instruction manuals. There is nothing of any note inside it: no adverts, promotions or even our beloved Gewinne!son. The Verdict In all honesty, although I thought it was a nice set from the pictures that surfaced, I wasn't as enthusiastic about it as most people were when it was announced. I saw this purely as a set I'd want to part out for the more interesting pieces, whatever they were. Having gotten the set at the VIP event preceding Brick Friday, my mind hasn't changed much. For me the highlight of this set is the lamppost, as well as the inclusion of four minifigures, when a set at this price would usually have two at the most. Given that regular Red is the predominant colour in this set, I'd guess that the minifigures make up the bulk of the price, whereas it was the inclusion of Dark Red parts in last year's promotional sets. Dark Red instead of Red in this set wouldn't have changed my perception of it. I personally don't have much use for horses, although this is a good opportunity to get hold of the new-style horse if you don't have one. The lack of an extra 1x2 Reddish Brown tile may cause problems for those who want to play with the horse as well as have it on display. Where I will agree with other people is that it makes a very good inclusion in Winter Village scenes, especially if you have all four buildings. Even if the little girl has had a visible growth spurt, none of these figures would look out of place with any of the buildings. As with last year's Holiday sets, there isn't going to be an overall score or rating. However, I would rate this set as being right between Holiday Set 1 and 2 in terms of desirability. If I do get hold of another one, it would be to put in the vault. Here's to a Merry Christmas, and the most Christmassy image I could think of at the moment.
