Similar to earlier LEGO Christmas ornaments, this newest version of the Nutcracker shares the same brick DNA as its predecessor in the Limited Edition Christmas Gift (40254) offered in 2017. Though significantly smaller in terms of piece count, the upcoming LEGO Nutcracker seasonal decor still captures the character’s timeless holiday charm.
