Last month, we had a glimpse of the LEGO Seasonal Thanksgiving (40261) set when its November-themed counterpart was made available which is the LEGO Seasonal Halloween Haunt (40260). As I have mentioned before, I am a fan of this series because of its nice, vignette-style builds and creative rendition of the changing seasons. Thanks to Promobricks, we now have official images of set 40261, which is expected to be available by October.
The LEGO Seasonal Thanksgiving (40261) set contains 133 LEGO pieces, some of which can prove to be quite useful for MOCs and other creations. The tree in the background looks very much the same as that from the LEGO Romantic Valentine Picnic (40236) save from the leave’s different color scheme. It also consists of vegetable patch, a scarecrow, and cleverly built turkey. I particularly like the cart which can be used in many different ways.
Other than the Thanksgiving (40261) and Halloween Haunt (40260) sets, we already have confirmation that the next holiday-themed seasonal sets will be the Christmas Train and Market Stalls (40262) and Town Square Christmas (40263) – both are perfect companions to this year’s Christmas D2C set, the LEGO Creator Winter Village Station (10259).
