Announced today I can only assume at Brickfair is the next installment of LEGO's holiday themed .... theme, 10222 Winter Village Post Office. Weighing in at 820 pieces, it's priced at $59.99 USD which is comparable to the series' previous offerings. Set goes on sale beginning of October 2011. More pictures below, followed by their video and then the official press release.








10222 Winter Village Post Office

Ages 12+. 820 pieces.

US $59.99 CA $79.99 DE 59.99 € UK 49.99 £

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

Available for sale directly through LEGO® beginning

These are really nice sets, and very reasonably priced (even if the price point is above what I usually spend on a single set). I kind of wish I had gotten in on these from the beginning, but I can't stomach the cost of catching up at this point (especially since I consider the Christmas Train to be part of this line).

I didn't know they had outdoor blues bands in Denmark. And someone tell that kid to stop whipping/taunting his dog.

Shop at Home still has the Winter Village Bakery available, although then you have to balance ViP points vs. sales tax and shipping costs...

I love the winter village sets. They're so festive and bright, have a quality build, and seem so perfectly Christmas. They truly make me smile when I see them.

Guys, do you know if this set is limited to US only? I found it in Moscow store but it is not yet available for sale. I want it before Christmas :)

I'm happy that they're releasing another! I would love to see 2-3 sets of these types each season. Perhaps a storefront, a house, and a vehicle. Houses are something that would be really really nice to see.
