It was only a matter of time before the press release for the much anticipated 10246 Detective's Office arrived and here it is! Unfortunately Huw is away on holiday at the moment so the images will not be added to the database for a couple of weeks. You can however view them on the Brickset Flickr photostream.
Anyway, the set will be available in January as expected. Here is the press release:
It appears that sighting season has started earlier than usual this year, with the first of the 2015 sets turning up in Canadian Toys R Us stores. This is much earlier than they might usually be expected to arrive so can only bode well for seeing the sets in your area prior to Christmas.
Only a couple of City sets have appeared so far that we are aware of, 60082 Dune Buggy Trailer and 60083 Snowplough Truck.
If you are in Canada and try your luck, please report back on what you find.
Today we kick-off our festive building competition to win fantastic prizes sponsored by the LEGO Affiliate program!
Before I explain how to enter, take a look at what you could win:
1st prize: your choice of the January exclusives: Slave I or (presumably) Detective's Office.
2nd prize: the next Ideas set (Birds, I presume).
3rd prize: the next Ideas set (Birds, I presume).
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to build a festive model using only parts from 40106 Toy Workshop and 40107 Ice Skating Scene and add a maximum of two photos of your model to the Brickset competition pool on flickr by midnight on Wednesday December 10th. You can read the full terms and conditions below. A panel of judges will decide the winners. I will invite people to participate in the judging nearer the closing date.
You don't need to own the sets -- you can use parts from your collection and even make colour substitutions if needed (see the rules below) -- but obviously it will be easier to enter if you do. Inventories of the sets are shown below. You can use the spare parts that come in the sets.
If you're a VIP member, you will be able to get hold of the Ice Skating Scene tomorrow from shop.LEGO.com -- a whole week earlier than it's available to everyone. A news article will go live at midnight tonight with more information.
So, what can be built with the two sets...? LEGO kindly sent us a few a while ago and here's what the Brickset team has come up with:
Brick 2014 is now just one week away and excitement is building for the UK's biggest LEGO event! From the 27th - 30th November ExCeL London will be awash with some of the world's greatest builders, representatives of LEGO and of course Brickset members.
I am aware of several members who will be exhibiting and undoubtedly plenty more will be visiting. I will be on the Blocks magazine stand for most of the time so if you see me around come and say hello! We may even have a (non-compulsory) Brickset team photo...
