Following the unofficial reveal of the LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) earlier today, the LEGO South Korea Facebook page also shared another upcoming LEGO 18+ set that marks our next set in the Winter Village series. The LEGO Elf Club House (10275) is this year’s seasonal LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village set, now relabeled as a LEGO 18+ offering.
Though the post was removed already by the LEGO South Korea social media team, excited LEGO fans were quick to take notice of it. From what we can learn from the above image is that the LEGO Elf Club House (10275) comes in 1,197 pieces including four elf minifigures and what seems to be a new and exclusive reindeer figure. It also comes with other mini builds that add fun and personality to this magical hangout such as a piano, a ship, a Christmas tree, and that pretty neat sleigh. What stands out the most, in my opinion, is that nice retro looking CRT screen. It’s hard to figure out if it is used as an old PC or a cash register in this context. But whatever is the case, I like the idea of seeing it beside my LEGO CMF Series 19 Computer Programmer (71025).
It is also interesting to note that this is the second time that LEGO will be releasing a Winter Village set that places the limelight on Santa’s hard-working helpers. It was back in 2014 when we last saw them on a similar LEGO set such as this in the form of the LEGO Creator Expert Santa’s Workshop (10245). I like the idea that after a hard day’s work, our Christmas elves get to chill out and rest in their very own clubhouse. I’m not quite sure if the elves in the upcoming LEGO Elf Club House will be a re-issue or will feature a different design as compared from that of six years ago. However, it seems to be clear that they will all be featuring a green upper torso in contrast to the varied colors offered in Santa’s Workshop (10245) set.
We do not have the pricing for this set as of this posting. However, given the Elf Club House’s piece count, we can assume that it will be around the same price range of $99.99. And since this direct-to-consumer set is expected to arrive in LEGO brand stores by September 23, we can expect an official announcement from LEGO anytime soon.
