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

Two websites have confirmed the name of this years seasonal Winter Village Set. Both websites say set 10249 is a Winter Toy Shop. One is Barnes and Noble. Their coupon exclusion list for toys and games has lego set 10249 Winter Toy Shop on it. Also shop.lego.com has confirmed the name also. The way you see on shop.lego.com is first open a new tab then type http://shop.lego.com/product/?p=10249 or just click the direct link here. Then finally after the page loads click the URL at the top of page and the URL has the set name in it. That trick works with any upcoming sets as long as you have the set number. I got that trick from someone off Eurobricks. So this years winter village set is a Winter Toy Shop.

Here is it folks.  :Looks like a 99% reissue (not a refresh) of 10199.

The Lego Designer did call it, "the new and improved version of the winter toy shop".

I'm so disappointed with Lego for putting out this set. The set is just a rip off of the older set!! For the worlds largest toy manufacturer this is just lazy and shameful.

They acknowledge as much in the video - it seems that 4-5 years time is fair game for re releases. Need to see how this trend evolves in the future as it has already touched City and Technic and now Creator too.

Wow, very similar alright.  At least I can now have one, but I don't think I'll go very deep.

the ROI of this one might very well be capped by 10199 prices.  not sure if new minifig and plate prints are enough.  when i first saw the box of 10249, i thought it was a photoshop joke using 10199.

i'll tell you one thing, 10249 is gonna be another hot selling set and prob will be sold-out by mid-Nov

I dont have the old set so I see this as a win for newer collectors

Well some elements seem to be different they are small and subtle

I will be picking it up for sure

I don't have this one either, so I'm in the same boat as you... no need to keep checking eBay or considering the bricklink route.

I know people are concerned/pissed about the re-release but I don't really understand why? LEGO doesnt make these sets for resellers despite what we might all think. They probably ran some numbers of what the recent sets sold (WVM, SW) versus the older sets (Toy Shop, Post Office) and decided that there was still plenty of profit to make!

That's the way I see it also.  No doubt there are many new fans and collectors of LEGO in the last 4 years that will buy this because they missed out on the first version.

Well, it seems that rereleaseitis is now spreading. We have had the 8041 race truck and now this.  Wondering when they will move to larger models i.e. modulars.

 

Just wait until we see the 10188 Death Star rehash next year. Time to adjust....again.

So, Toy Shop & Post Office were the only choices? What about coming up with something else? What happened to the creativity?
