Just a reminder that LEGO VIP members get early access to two new sets starting today (general release for both sets is October 1st); the #75252 LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Imperial Star Destroyer, and the #10267 LEGO Creator Expert Gingerbread House. We have talked about both sets already (see: LEGO Star Wars Star Imperial Star Destroyer and LEGO Gingerbread House Coming Soon!), but I included the most essential information for your convenience, along with some additional details. 🙂

First of all, to celebrate the launch of the #75252 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer, LEGO is offering Double VIP Points when you purchase the set, but only this weekend, September 18th to September 22nd. I expect that this will create quite a bit of traffic at the Online LEGO Shop, so if you want to take advantage of the promotion, make your purchase as early as you can. This offer is valid both at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

Here is the official description of the set: Build and display an icon of the Galactic Empire – the Devastator. With over 4,700 LEGO pieces, this #75252 Ultimate Collector Imperial Star Destroyer model captures all the authentic details of the starship as it appeared in the opening scene of Star Wars: A New Hope, including swiveling guns, a tilting radar dish, huge engine exhausts, intricate surface detailing and of course a buildable scale version of the Rebels’ Tantive IV starship to chase down. This galactic civil war UCS set also includes a display stand with informational fact plaque and two Imperial minifigures, making it the perfect LEGO Star Wars collectible for discerning fans. Includes Imperial Officer and Imperial Crewmember minifigures. Model on display stand measures over 17” (44cm) high, 43” (110cm) long and 26” (66cm) wide, and over 14” (37cm) high without stand. 4,784 pieces. Price: $699.99 – BUY HERE

To really get a sense of the size and scale of this set, German LEGO fan site Stonewars.de shared the following very helpful size comparison, showing the #75252 LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer next to previously released LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series sets. It’s definitely menacing and massive!

The second set released today is the #10267 LEGO Creator Expert Gingerbread House. This is the 10th set in the LEGO Creator Winter Village collection, featuring a lovely house with tons of details and accessories for the gingerbread family. And it also comes with a light-brick!

Here is the official description of the set: Enjoy a festive build and play experience with the #10267 LEGO Creator Expert 10267 Gingerbread House. A treasure chest of magical details, this amazing model features frosted roofs with colorful candy buttons and a delicious facade with candy-cane columns, glittery windows and a tall chimney stack with a glowing fireplace. Inside the house, there is an array of fun details and candy furnishings including a tasteful bedroom with chocolate bed and cotton candy lamp, and a bathroom with the essential toilet and bathtub. This wonderful LEGO Gingerbread House sets the scene for imaginative adventures with the gingerbread family. Children can light up the cozy fireplace, help clear the sidewalk with the snow blower and nestle the gingerbread baby in its carriage. It also includes a decorated Christmas tree with wrapped gifts and toys, including a rocking horse and a toy train. This advanced LEGO set delivers a challenging and rewarding building experience and makes a great seasonal centerpiece for the home or office. Includes gingerbread man, woman, and baby figures. Measures over 8” (21cm) high, 10” (26cm) wide and 5” (13cm) deep. 1,477 pieces. Price: $99.99 – BUY HERE

Imagine a gingerbread house called the DEVASTATOR. 😀

I wouldn’t mind that. Star Destroyers are just a giant piece of gray wedge. They need some color, so throw some candy at them. They would be perfect traps for those pesky and always hungry rebels.

Lol! That’s funny. Maybe there is a gingerbread Vader , who is enforcing the dark crispy side. Lol! I’m thinking the ginger bread house is too ” doll house ” for me . It is a fun looking set.

We will get the Gingerbread House for sure. It’s cute, and I like all the little builds in it. The Star Destroyer is not going to happen. Too big, too gray, too much work to build.

It’s the gingerbread house for us too. It’s a sweet set (literally!), not too small, not too big, and goes perfectly with the winter village.

I have been thinking about this, and I think the gingerbread house needs some more color. Especially the roof. I kind of liked the small gingerbread house they released a few years ago a little better. It might be worth adding some more candy to the roof. But I like everything else.

Basically too much frosting, not enough candy. 😀

You can always put some more candy colored plates on the roof! I do think it would look even more yummy! 😀

About 10 years ago I didn’t buy the original Star Destroyer though I saw it in the store. A few years later some people were asking $1500 – $2000 USD and then I was sorry I didn’t buy one. But, did I really want it? I thought it was big and grey and boring. Now, in fairness, I have to say I watched the original Episode IV when it came out — the bigness, the grey-ness, the boring-ness, the omnipotence of the Star Destroyer set the mood for George Lucas universe which we were seeing for the first time (me as a boy of about 12).

Anyway now I can buy it again, and, I’m no sure. I think the days of people stocking-up on these sets are over. So don’t buy it expecting to retire with the profits to your private yacht. I had it my cart yesterday, and decided, Nah, I don’t need it. $699 USD still seems too much. And again it doesn’t seem “fun,” it seems dark and oppressive. Which, again, is exactly what it was supposed to be. Adding any color to it would ruin that.

I’d say I’m glad they made the first BIG one. Didn’t sell too many. Because they were rare (especially new-in-box), they started to get a huge aftermarket value. Now we’re seeing what is basically a re-issue. I think they are trying to get $$ from people that will put them in storage units waiting for a big bump in price that will never come.

Gingerbread — yeah, looks fun. No minifigs except a Gingerbread man/woman/baby. Kind-of cute and also creepy. I’m picturing a holiday village being taken-over by Gingerbread zombies.

Good points about the Star Destroyer. You definitely have to like the set and also have the space for it. I agree that the days of easy money infesting in big LEGO sets are over. I wouldn’t mind to see some Ginggerbread zombies taking over the Winter Village! 😈
