Review: 40082 Christmas Tree Stand
From today until the end of October (or until stocks last), this cute little set is free with qualifying purchases at shop.LEGO.com and LEGO Brand Stores.
LEGO has kindly sent me one to review so you can see how cool it is and thus go and place an order right away, which you can do by clicking on the banner at the top of the home page :-)
The set is packaged in a small rectangular box much like last year's free Christmas sets. Mine got squashed in transit so I won't post a picture but here's what's inside: three bags and an instruction booklet.
The rarest part in the set is a dark green 2 x 2 round plate, which has made an appearance in just one other set, used for the wreath above the hatch.
It looks as if it will fit in well with 10235 Winter Village Market, although I haven't built mine yet.
Once again LEGO has produced an excellent promotional Christmas set, and even though it's still only October, I suggest you place an order ASAP to secure one. Remember, you'll get double VIP points also.
The other promotional Christmas set, 40083, which complements this one, will be available in November. Stay tuned to find out when!
