Recommended Posts

Its a brilliant set, I have the box and instructions somewhere. But not all the bricks. 

Interestingly, your avatar is the picture I would have used if you had not got there first. I use it on Facebook instead :)

Looks so awesome!!!   Ages 12+. 1,261 pieces. Collect and create a fun festive scene with the Winter Village Market! US $99.99 - CA $129.99 - DE 89.99

  With the recent retirements of the Bakery and Post Office, I do think it would be unlikely we would lose the Cottage just yet. Still, who knows what will happen.

Not sure whether you all have noticed or not..

 

price for Winter Village Market is higher in North America than Europe, seems like Lego is trying to shrink the price difference to stop US resellers selling to Asia..just a thought..

 

Winter Village Cottage

 

Pieces: 1490

 

99.99 USD, 99.99 EUR, 89.99 GBP

 

Winter Village Market

 

Pieces: 1261

 

99.99 USD, 89.99 EUR,79.99 GBP

 

You can see from the comparison with WInter Village Cottage, WVM has less piece count but price remains the same for US, however, price for other regions is lower.

 

To me this is more of bring the EU pricing down to "normal" levels based on other sets, eg 10220 & 10226. Both are

The reason for higher US price is simple, Christmas is a more popular holiday in the US than anywhere else in the world.  TLG is just capitalizing on it.

A winter village chapel/church would be awesome.  I know lego likes to stay away from controversy (religion...) but this theme is just screaming for one.  If recent history is a clue then lego won't even be brave enough to include some carolers in one of the sets.  P.S. Lego has to give in at some point, right?  How long can you NOT include the incredible architecture of something like Notre Dame in a large-scale creator set?

 

Huh ?  There were a pair of carolers in Winter Toy Shop set

I find it hard to believe that they won't eventually do a religiously based set like Notre Dame.  Are people really that thin skinned (even though I don't think this has anything to do with being thinned skinned, just stubborn) to think that a model toy is somehow attacking their religion?  Honestly, where would the backlash be over a religious set similar in design to the Tower Bridge?

It will not retire, they will be back again for Christmas...I got info from my toy shop, I have pre-ordered some 

 

Good heads up - I expected this to come back in stock.  Once S&**** sold out before Christmas last year, there was a nice spike in prices...

Hmm, so Cottage hasn't been retired?  I figured because I couldn't find it on Lego LEGO Shop at Home that it was no longer available.

LEGO Shop at Home only sells it seasonally. Thats why its not on their website now.

I'll be selling a few of my MISB Toy Shops before the holiday season starts. And I have to buy a cottage for my collection.
The new Winter village set should blend in nicely with all the rest, although I agree that it somehow fails to deliver an impression as good as the other sets. There are no glowing bricks either. My conclusion is that it's a cool set to add to your collection, but a not good enough one to start it with.
