A few days ago, our radars have caught on a rumor that has been making rounds among AFOL forums. The yet-to-be verified news is about an upcoming addition to the LEGO Creator Fairground subtheme that has been quite popular as a D2C set. The rumored set, which is the LEGO Creator Fairground Carousel (10256) is said to make its debut on June 1st, to give way to the recent LEGO Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder (75144) set to be released on May 4th.
Fans of the Fairground subtheme now have something to look forward to since the rumors might as well be true. BrickGeeks managed to obtain a copy of the LEGO Store June Calendar (which is quite early actually), and snapped an image of its featured, D2C set. Check this out.
This is the second carousel set that LEGO is expected to release, with the first being the Grand Carousel (10196) back from 2009. I like the detailed design of its gold and gray arches, and even the seats are of newer design – that swan and flamingo seats are nice builds by themselves. Similar to its earlier cousin, the Fairground Carousel (10256) is expected to have the same power functions and motorized play features. It also joins the Ferris Wheel (10247), Fairground Mixer (10244), and as mentioned, the Grand Carousel (10196) as the fourth Advanced Model under the LEGO Creator Fairground subtheme. We have no official word yet on 10256’s pricing and piece count, which we expect to be out anytime next month.
So what do you think of this new fairground set brick fans? Will this be a sure hit among LEGO fans? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
