There are a couple of really sweet LEGO sets for this year’s holiday season that you would probably want to get. The LEGO Halloween set is available right now, and the LEGO Thanksgiving set will be available in October. They both follow the same design as the LEGO Valentine’s Day and the LEGO Easter sets that we got in the spring; small vignettes on an 8×8 stud base with lots of really nice elements and accessories. 🙂
➡ #40122 LEGO HALLOWEEN TRICK OR TREAT SET: I agree with just2good’s video-review below that the dress for this minifig is kind of inappropriate, but still it is a nice, and a fairly rare piece. Also, the red bucket, olive-green grass piece, purple elements, masonry-bricks and orange pumpkins are always welcome additions to a LEGO collection. Here is the official description: Dress up as a witch for a Trick or Treat fright night! Role-play an eerie Halloween scene with this spooky LEGO Trick or Treat set! Dress up the girl minifigure as a witch, complete with pointy hat and broom, and take a bucket for the treats you hope to receive. Tiptoe past the bat perched on top of the dead tree to the doorstep of the haunted house. Watch out for the big spider and the tombstone on the front porch and be prepared for a big fright when a skeleton answers the door! Includes 2 minifigures with assorted accessories: a female and a skeleton. 133 pieces. Price: $9.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #40123 LEGO THANKSGIVING SET: As just2good mentions in the video-review above, this set is featured at the back of the instruction booklet of the Halloween set. There are so many good parts here it is ridiculous. Some of the rare pieces include the full turkey, the pie the inverted dome (used as a bowl for the apple), the green bottle, that white plate with tooth, the pitchfork, and the lady’s gray hair that so far was only used with one minifigure. This set is also just $10, so if you like the pieces you may even want to get several. It will be available in October.
Talking about the holidays, don’t forget about Series 14 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures as they work perfectly for Halloween.
Also, all three of the LEGO Advent Calendars are now available: #75097 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar, #60099 LEGO City Advent Calendar and #41102 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar. You can find them all under the Seasonal Items section of the Online LEGO Shop.
So what do you think? How do you like the LEGO Halloween and LEGO Thanksgiving sets? Are you planning to get either of them? Or both? Do you have the previously released LEGO Valentine’s Day and LEGO Easter sets? Feel free to share your own thoughts in the comment section below! 😉
