10216 Winter Village Bakery Announced

Postby Draykov » Thu Jul 22, 2010 12:15 am

Nicely complementing 10199 Winter Toy Shop, LEGO Shop@Home today announced their newest holiday-themed set, 10216 Winter Village Bakery. The set will cost you US $54.99 UK £ 49.99 DE 54.99€ and CA $74.99 and will be available starting in October. Interesting note: I accidentally had my Shop@Home country preference set to Ireland, and noticed that 10199 Winter Toy Shop was available. Could this set be making a comeback this season? I hope so as I missed it the first time around. 10216 images below the press release:

At the bakery nearby, the friendly baker prepares delicious holiday treats in his oven and rings up sales at the cash register.

Huh... this just makes me regret not getting last year's winter set. This one's kinda... bleh... I suppose it'd look nice next to the Toy Store if you bought that one, but other than that this isn't for me.

yeah.... ditto. Very lame. I had my hopes up when I saw the thread, thinking it would be a modular bakery. Oh how wrong I was.

I don't know. This seems very similar to 10199 to me (which had 786 pieces). For the bakery, I count 7 figs and a horse (as opposed to 7 figs and a kitty in the toy shop set).

Image

It's a very similar style with a very similar make-up of smaller models around the main (small) building. Instead of a big tree, we get a horse-drawn buggy with a tree in the back. Instead of a bench with lamp post, we get a frozen pond with skaters. While I have to admit, the design of the toy shop building was a little more inventive than the bakery, if you liked 10199 I don't know why you wouldn't like this set. Especially if you've got 10173 Holiday Train. I may be a sucker, but this makes me excited for Christmas.

I agree. I don't know how it would stand on it's own, but it's the perfect companion to the Toy Shop. I wish the image was bigger, I'd like to see how they did minifig ice skates. It looks like they used a 1x2 plate, which would be uninspired to say the least.

I'm in, but like others here I'm a sucker for Christmas ANYTHING in Lego. Well except those stupid minifigure stockings. :)

If last years City Advent Calendar is anything to go by, I think they used this part.

This is just it. It's not about piece count or number of minifigs, it's the model itself that's just... boring. As I said, it'd look nice next to the toy shop, but other than that it's nothing special.

To each their own. I still think it's a cute little building...just not quite as spiffy as the toy shop.

Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't get that Advent Calendar, so I wasn't aware Lego used the tooth plate as a skate. If you take the image and zoom in on it and squint a bit, it looks like Lego probably used that plate again. I guess that will have to do until Lego makes a minifig skate mold.

Hi res images of this set have popped up over at Eurobricks, including this super giant one and the spinny version. Box art is up on Flickr. Stickers (boo!) are no surprise, and it's really only half a building, but a cute little set when all is said and done.

10216 is currently listed on Shop@Home US with an availability of: "Coming Soon on 29 Sep 2010"

I love how it has 7 1/2 figures. The skater stuck in the snow is on par with the pantsless guy in Grand Emporium for the funniest thing I've ever seen in an official set.

Nice addition for a LEGO Christmas town display, but uninteresting for my needs.

Maybe it's just my own childhood nostalgia, but I have trouble associating Lego in my mind with Christmas displays, other than a train around the Christmas tree. Maybe it's because there were never any winter parts available when I was a kid (no skis - except for the neon ones in Ice Planet, still no proper toque or good looking Santa minifig) to build scenes with. In that respect Playmobil was far superior and occupies the tingly Christmas toy space in my head. Playmobil makes a proper santa and reindeer sleigh plus a complete nativity scene which Lego seems unlikely to ever touch. Also they make a Christmas tree that actually lights up unlike the sparsely decorated Lego one that came with the toy store.

On top of that, it looks now like Lego plans to add to this series every year ala the Lemax/Department 56/Kinkade villages, which I can't afford to get into (they've already got me hooked on the yearly Cafe Corner modular buildings).

Good catch! It looks like the Winter Toy Shop is available in every country except the US and Canada. Were the US and Canada the only two countries to sell out, while the others are stilling selling old stock? I'd say they are re-releasing it.

I hope so, I'd love to pick up last year's set.

I can't disagree but the guy with tears while pulling him out made me laugh because he doesn't seem to be having nearly as much fun as I would in that position.
