During the past two weeks, LEGO was leaving bits and pieces on what we could expect from this year’s line of Winter Village set. There were speculations back then that it was going to be a fire station as hinted by the selected images that LEGO shared over on YouTube. And it was later on confirmed to be as such when we had our first look at the set’s official name – the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station (10263) – when it first appeared in an Italian LEGO store flyer. This time around, we now have an official listing for this new winter village set at shop.LEGO.com.
The LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station (10263) comes in at 1,166 pieces and features a handful of minibuilds alongside the fire station itself. The set includes a lamppost and a bench, a newly designed Christmas tree decked with presents at minifig proportions, a frozen pool and fountain, sled, and a vintage-inspired fire truck. The main build features a cutaway portion of a fire station that shows a two-storey design: the lower level serves as a garage for the fire truck, complete with functional doors and several fire-fighting accessories. The upper level features a warm and cozy resting area for our brave modern-day heroes. It has a red telephone, coffee maker, dining table, and a foldable bed. The Winter Village Fire Station (10263) also comes with a light brick (with batteries included) to light up the building. The building facade is also decked with LEGO’s new sustainable plant elements, staying true to their commitment in gradually promoting these new plant-based LEGO pieces in their future sets. Curiously, there is no particular scene where we can find the firefighters in action, save for placing the traditional star on the top of the Christmas tree. I guess LEGO is keeping up with the festive mood of the occasion since this is a Christmas-themed set. You have to leave it to your imagination if you wish to add such a feature in your own holiday build.
The minifigures that goes along with the Winter Village Fire Station (10263) does not disappoint as well. It includes 6 minifigures: 3 firefighters with new classic firefighter uniforms, ice hockey player, musician with saxophone, and a girl with a scarf. The set also contains a baby minifigure with a printed sweater, a Dalmatian, and a buildable snowman with a curved top hat.
