10249 - Winter Toy Shop


Recommended Posts

So looking at the releases on The Brick Fan, and it shows a new Winter Toy Shop on the horizon next year. I personally think it is a bit disappointing, as there are more areas that surely could have been explored. It will be interesting to see it's design and whether or not it is similar enough to the previous rendition to give the 10199 a hit investment wise.

That seems a bit of an overreaction. Did you perhaps mean every one?

It was a winner.  Listen people, many of you are here because you are looking for information about investment, reselling, collecting...not LEGO bricks as a simple toy or fun build.  I will tell you t

There was tons of anger a few days back when folks first saw the new set. Some of the ambivalence you're encountering is just because folks have already reached that stage of grieving.  1) Denial

Just makes no sense for Lego to release another Winter theme Toy Shop with all the available options, Then again, I know it will sell well so it prob does make since if you're a main bean counter in TLG's finance dept.

I do wonder if this set is somehow going to be a larger $99.99 version of the original or something to compliment Santa's Workshop since both sets will be available together for at least 2-4 months.

Do you mean "complement" ?

That would not make sense because santa gives toys for free, and do not use a shop but chimneys. :)

I am thinking the Hoth Echo Base and Winter Toy Shop are just placeholder names for the SW UCS and winter themed sets. UCS AT-AT and Holiday Express Train have been bandied about and make more sense. Only time will tell.

 

On eurobricks today:

 

"Okay, update on the rumored 10179 rerelease.

I spoke with the informant over the phone today about whether there was going to be an updated 10179. My bud was at the toy fair in NYC and supposedly they had a private behind closed doors event for dealers that showcased a few products we haven't seen yet. There was a falcon on display that was different than 10179 that had lights and new features.

However, according to my informant, this isn't the new UCS. They aren't remaking 10179. Period. Economically, lego felt it wouldn't work well with their intended market (children) and the price point would have made hard core adult collectors cringe.

I sat there on the phone disappointed when the conversation took another turn. There was another model on display that lego was pitching as the next BIG UCS. As I've stated previously, my informant owns a toy shop and isn't an

Sounds like another smaller set, like last year.  I miss the ginormousness of 10229!  And I still hope this set isn't another toy shop.

I think this is exactly "another toy shop," hence the title Winter Toy Shop...

Yeah, I can read the title.  I just wasn't aware that this had ever been confirmed beyond the initial rumor last December.

Ravenb99 gave us the price so I'd say it's pretty much no longer a rumor...

Posted on Brickset, from member Grogall, who seems to have a good reputation in the community:

"2nd version of Winter Village Toy Store (Nope)

2nd Version of Holiday Train (Nope)

2nd Version of the Workshop (Nope)

I can only say it's sweet! :-P"

speculation seems to be a candy shop or a gingerbread house based on his use of the word sweet being interpreted as a clue.
