This is how TLG squeezes an extra $30 from the seasonal LEGO shopper. Now you gotta get Santa’s Visit and the Sleigh.

well I see it as more of a benefit to shoppers

the house and sleigh in a single set would be pushing well past $100..and some may only want sleigh or the house

Agreed. But let's face it. Most will buy both.

But you are correct it's nice for people to be able to buy the sleigh without having to fork out $130 if it was included with a larger seasonal.

Before I really looked at the size, I assumed this was around a $20 set. I was shocked a bit. $30 is probably about normal compared to other sets.

Aw man, I hadn't looked that closely and had been assuming this was going to be a GWP. $37 is bonkers for this set.

To purchase the Reindeer element direct from LEGO the cost is $5.86 each so those four reindeer make up 63% of the cost of this set, not including the rigging to connect them to the sleigh.  While $36.99 seems high, it is actually fair based on the cost of the elements in the set.

reindeer are considered like minifigures...in which case just slightly bonkers

75945 Expecto Patronum had 4 minfigs and the trans-blue stag for $20. And the stag was a new mold. So $37 is pretty bonkers. I get 4 reindeer is high for a GWP but then again the sailboat has 2 dolphins and 2 minifigs. So could have been with a $200 purchase.

Is this set exclusive to Lego store?  Not seeing the "exclusive" tag on the product page.  

I really hope it is, but not all exclusive sets have exclusive tags from what I’ve seen, la Catrina is one....if she’s really exclusive ;)
