If you recall, the September LEGO Store Calendar mentioned two exclusive sets that were slated for early VIP release from September 14 to 30. We now know that the first is the highly publicized UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), while the second is the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Station (10259). The latter is the fifth holiday-themed, D2C Creator Expert set to be released by LEGO, following the likes of the Winter Village Market (10235), Santa’s Workshop (10245), Winter Toy Shop (10249), and the Winter Holiday Train (10254).
Now that the Winter Village Station (10259) is made available for VIP members, and is scheduled to be available to all by October 1, you will be glad to know that its complementary set, last year’s Winter Holiday Train (10254), is now available for backorders at shop.LEGO.com as of this posting. This is a great time to grab these sets and complete your holiday-themed train station. Check out each of the sets’ designer vids and official descriptions below.
