LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon and Winter Village Station now available for VIP members [News]

Ten years after the first version hit shelves, the new and improved 75192 Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon is now available to order from the LEGO Shop online. The largest LEGO set ever released includes 7,541 pieces, 10 minifigs, and is priced at $799.99 USD. In some locales, the set may not be available until 7:30 AM, instead of midnight.

The set will be available more broadly starting on October 1st, but is currently available only to LEGO VIP Program members. Of course, you can just sign up for a VIP membership for free, so that means the set is available to everyone now, assuming you’re ready and able to cough up the rent payment eight hundred bucks for it.


Additionally, the newest holiday set, 10259 Winter Village Station, is also available to VIP club members for $79.99. The set pairs perfectly with last year’s 10254 Winter Holiday Train and has 902 pieces (or just under an eighth of the size of the UCS Millennium Falcon for one-tenth of the price!).

These sets, along with all LEGO 2017 Advent Calendars and newer sets like the Old Fishing Store, are now available to order from the LEGO Shop online.

LEGO designer video offers an express look at 10259 Winter Village Station [News]

LEGO’s winter holiday sets have become annual must-have items for fans looking to expand their winter village scene. LEGO has released a video in which the designer of 10259 Winter Village Station gives us a closer look at this highly anticipated set. A station seems to be a logical accompaniment to last year’s 10254 Winter Holiday Train, so we are excited to find out more. The set is available October 1st and will retail for USD$79.99 / £74.99. Look out for a thorough review by The Brothers Brick in the very near future!

LEGO 10259 Winter Village Station announced [News]

It’s that time of year again: winter is coming, and that means another new Winter Village set. Having been a staple since 2009, Winter Village sets create a quaint cottage-style holiday town. Last year’s set was 10254 Winter Holiday Train, which featured only a small wayside stop. LEGO is giving it a huge boost with this year’s set, 10259 Winter Village Station, a proper station for the rail line. Winter Village Station has 902 pieces and will retail for $79.99 USD when it’s available Oct. 1. While LEGO has not yet confirmed, it will also likely be available Sept. 15 to VIP club members, as previous Winter Village sets have been.

10249 Winter Toy Shop announced [News]

Here’s your first look at the latest set in the popular Winter Village series, 10249 Winter Toy Shop. Now, some of you may be scratching your heads, wondering why this looks so familiar: this set is a re-release of 2009’s 10199 Winter Toy Shop. This time around LEGO has swapped out a few colors, and added a few pieces, bringing this version to 898 versus the original’s 815, which is apparently enough to justify a $20 price bump. It will retail for $79.99 USD, available beginning in October.
It is disappointing that LEGO won’t be releasing an all-new Winter Village set this year, but should make folks happy who missed out on the Toy Shop the first time around. Let us know in the comments if you think a re-release like this is great for fans, or just disappointing. Don’t forget to pick up the last several Winter Village sets, which are still available: 10235 Winter Village Market, and 10245 Santa’s Workshop.
