Review: 30186 Christmas Tree

Posted by ,

This polybag is available in Toys R Us in North America. I don't think it's available anywhere else other than possibly Hungary, so I'm indebted to Richard over at YouTube channel BrickFormula for sending some over to me. It was the last 30xxx polybag released in 2013 that I needed.

Unlike the tree in 40058 which we reviewed a few weeks ago, this is a traditional 'four-pronged' square design. However what's cool about this one is that it uses inverted slopes, and dark green ones at that, rather than normal slopes which actually give it a more realistic look, in my opinion. The gifts under the tree are an integral part of the structure, although it won't topple if they are omitted. The starfish at the top has probably been used on a tree before but despite looking I can't find one.

Overall it's a neat poly -- nice design and parts -- and worth tracking down.

Thanks Richard!

I got mine like 3 weeks in ago at TRU in Canada; I figure somebody put some out too early as this week you get a free one for spending $30.

Nice polybag! Would love to get one. Also Brickformula, you are my favourite Lego reviewer! I enjoy all of your videos as you go into depth but still are humorous. Keep it up!! :D

Yup TRU Canada has them as well. I picked one up 3 weeks ago to match my 30009.

Looks good to me, I am trying to collect all of the Christmas polybags this year so this will be a definite purchase.

I just got my tree from Toys R Us in Canada (Brampton, ON) this past weekend. It was in the flyer and indicated that stores were only receiving 25 sets to give away if you spend over $25 on Lego sets.

I got one free at TRU in Barrie ON when I picked up Camper Van 60057 and Light Repair Truck 60054 last Friday.

I actually really like the presents at the bottom, it really ties it all together.
