The LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Station (10259) and Winter Holiday Train (10254) Available Again at LEGO Shop@Home

Just in time for today’s early VIP release of the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station (10263), shop.LEGO.com now brings back two previously released Winter Village sets to add more Christmas cheers to your collection. In case you missed out on these, the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Station (10259) and Winter Holiday Train (10254) are both listed again for sale at LEGO Shop@Home. Released in 2017 and 2016 respectively, it is rather unusual for LEGO to offer a Winter Village set that has been released two years ago. However, due to the positive reception of LEGO fans for these two sets since they ideally go together to create one complete Winter Village track system, LEGO decided to offer them again.

UPDATE: As of this posting, the Winter Village Station (10259) is now on Backorder at shop.LEGO.com.

So if you missed out on these two lovely LEGO Winter Village sets from two years ago, be sure to check them out at LEGO’s official shopping portals (and stay away from the fake ones) by simply clicking these links below.

LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station (10263) Finally Confirmed

Sometimes you can’t help but wonder if LEGO purposely reveals details of a set to one of its national markets alone, leaving other countries to pick up on it themselves before they make an official announcement later. How many times already did we learn about new sets because of a store flyer or product sighting anywhere from Europe to Korea? As August came to an end, we were treated to teaser details for this year’s LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village. The red telephone close-up hints at an emergency response office. Good guess! A LEGO store flyer from Italy now confirms that this year’s winter village D2C set is the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station (10263)

LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station (10263)

According to the flyer, 2018 will see us getting the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station (10263). Well, just because a village is covered in snow doesn’t mean fires won’t break out. This upcoming set is a realistic addition for an ever-expanding brick-built village.

Now that we know the set’s name, all that’s left is the eventual reveal scheduled to be on September 9, with its availability slated by October 1. As you can tell from the numbering too, this comes right after the LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262). The Winter Village Fire station joins the ranks of previous holiday-themed, advanced models sets such as last year’s Winter Village Station (10259)Winter Village Market (10235)Santa’s Workshop (10245)Winter Toy Shop (10249), and the Winter Holiday Train (10254).

Thanks also to Italian LEGO news site Mattonito for sharing this tidbit to the world.

LEGO Teases on its 2018 Winter Village D2C Set

It’s that time of the year again when we excitedly count the days leading to Christmas, and what better way for LEGO fans to celebrate the occasion than to have our hands busy once more with LEGO’s next Winter Village offering. This particular LEGO Creator Expert holiday subtheme began in 2009 and has been growing steadily ever since, with each set adding seamlessly to the previous one. In fact, for two consecutive years, this particular subtheme saw a Winter Village Station (10259) and a Winter Holiday Train (10254) set that animated this humble winter village. This time, thanks to a teaser released by LEGO News, we now have a glimpse of what the next LEGO Winter Village D2C set will be. There was no specific mention of what this is, except for some close up shots of particular sections of the set.

The teaser featured some of the most common elements in a LEGO Winter Village set such as a Christmas Tree, a micro-scaled snowman, and a lamp-post. However, what is most interesting is the last teaser image that LEGO News has shared. The red telephone is quite telling, hinting on the fact that this could be part of any particular office or establishment that respond to emergency situations. Some LEGO fans even suggest that it may even be a fire station of some sorts inside the winter village. The good thing though is that this year’s LEGO Winter Village D2C set is slated to be revealed on September 9, so we’ll keep our eyes and radars open for that. Be sure to stay tuned here in our blog site for more LEGO updates.
