For the last few years Lego has been building on a seasonal theme known as the Winter Village, and this year their release is the Lego Winter Village Post Office. It is an exclusive set and initially only available only at the Official Lego Store (Out Now!).
Like previous models in the theme, Winter Toy Shop and Winter Holiday Bakery, The Winter Village Post Office contains lots of intricate details and feels like the popular Modular Buildings, only smaller.
This latest set contains 820 pieces, is priced at USD$59.99 and will be out on the 1st October 2011.
Official Lego Press Release.
“Continuing the winter scene series, the Winter Village Post Office is the perfect snow-covered setting. In the cozy post office, the worker is hard at work sorting all the mail into containers and sacks, while upstairs, there’s just time for the postman to take a break before setting off in the traditional post car with all the letters and gifts. From the pavilion outside, musicians fill the air with music, while children take in the wintry atmosphere by the park bench before throwing snowballs at each other – the musicians had better get ready to duck!
- Includes 7 minifigures: female post office worker, male postman, female, 2 kids and 2 musicians and a dog!
- Post office features dark-green split roof with snow, fireplace, light brick, table, coffee mug, and lamppost and mailboxes outside!
- Also features evergreen tree and assorted minifigure accessories”
