LEGO Reveals 10257 Carousel

Postby Staff » Thu Apr 27, 2017 9:22 am




LEGO reveals their newest Creator set in their unofficial fairgrounds line, 10257 Carousel. Boasting an impressive piece count of 2,670, 10257 Carousel will cost you $199 USD and will be available starting on June 1. I missed out in the very first carousel set, 10196 Grand Carousel, so I am glad they are releasing another one. And while this one is smaller with less pieces than its predecessor, it won't cost me an arm, a leg, and a kidney to get it, just an arm.

More pictures, the designer video, and the official press release below the fold.

That's cute. I like it. But I don't collect this line so I'll pass... also even if I did, that price stings a bit. I like the small size, but the price doesn't seem to scale down accordingly.
