Your first image of seasonal set 40204

Posted by ,

An image of 40204 was found in the back of the instructions of 40203 Vampire and Bat by BrickVibe and posted on Facebook.

We have it listed as a witch, a second Halloween set, but BrickVibe thinks it's a pilgrim for Thanksgiving. It's sitting on a Pumpkin which suggests Halloween to me, but then it's munching turkey legs, so I don't know what the heck it is.

Whatever it is, it's a bit freaky, isn't it, like 40203...

Pilgrim for Thanksgiving. 100%

It looks essentially like your typical Thanksgiving pilgrim (for those in the US of A, anyway).

100% thanksgiving!

Obviously a pilgrim... >_>

Wow. Somehow LEGO is out doing themselves and making each one of these worse than the last. That's impressive.

That is a turkey leg. Pumpkins are also associated with USA Thanksgiving. The eater has been given all the stereotypical marks of the Pilgrim; gold buckles on shoes and belt, a tall hat (sans the gold buckle), large white collar and knee breeches with white stockings.

Definitely a pilgrim, although I can't say that I'm a fan.

That is terrifying.

It's definitely a pilgrim. Love his hilarious dopey grin and pudgy proportions! Great job by the designers!

Pumpkins are very often associated with Thanksgiving as an American fall harvest food. Their association with Halloween is mostly in the form of jack-o-lanterns.

Alright Lego, let's stop making promotional sets for kids that are scaring away both adults and kids :P

Yeah, I'm Australian, and I can tell that the set is a pilgrim for Thanksgiving.

But he's even more terrifying than the vampire. Yikes!

USA Pilgrim, it looks ugly to my tastes.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is this supposed to be for Thanksgiving or Halloween? That thing is frightening.

WWWWWWhaaaattttt?!?!?!

By in United States,

Wow. Scary, so scary. And yes, I agree with everyone that it's a pilgrim in honor of Thanksgiving in the US. Turkey and pumpkin pie....yum.

At first glance I thought it was Pinocchio...somehow knowing that it is a Pilgrim doesn't make it any better...

Er... LEGO... stop making your $10 brick built critters so creepy... although nothing will ever top Geoffrey & Friends.

Who's designing these? I miss those little vignettes. :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yea these are getting odd. Bring back the vignettes!

Gravatar
By in United States,

The heck?

Gravatar
By in United States,

We don't need vignettes every year, more so if they raise the price of them. However 2014 we had little brick built creatures. They were cute and fun, now creepy and scary and almost offensive.

Gravatar

HAHA, reading these comments has made my day...I definitely agree with others, it is a Pilgrim. But it is a little on the scary side. Something about that face and those arms! Regardless, I still want to add it to my collection, maybe even find some clever ways to scare my wife with it! Maybe like an adult version of elf on the shelf, I'll just have this little guy pop up randomly in different places across the house....

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ha! It's definitely a pilgrim. This should make for a fun review.

Can't wait to see what sort of atrocities they come up with for 40205 and 40206. Safe bets that it will be something "Santa" and "Winter", but, man, who knows what they'll look like!

Gravatar

You want to scare the wife? Set it on the table next to her bed so when she wakes up it's the first thing she sees. Then just randomly move it around the house. She be scared within minutes.

If LEGO is going t continue to make things in this scale they really need to come up with a better 'hand' pieces or just redo the whole arm.

@The Green Brick Giant

Good idea, I will have to do that! Gotta be careful though, I can't have her pulling the plug on my Lego habit ;-)

Ugh. Looks like a creepy sports mascot but worse somehow

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

We don't have pilgrims like that in our culture in the UK, or thanksgiving for that matter, so thank you everyone for enlightening me...

Gravatar

"...although nothing will ever top Geoffrey & Friends."

Ah, that set! Geoffrey and Friends, aka, two children remain missing after being abducted by a bipedal giraffe ...

Has any one seen the Simpsons Halloween special where the turkey eats everyone at thanksgiving, this reminded me of that

Gravatar
By in Norway,

Hide your kids, hide your wife.. And RUUUUUUUUUN

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think it's rather cleverly made, and nowhere near as creepy as that giraffe!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think I may have just found the new centerpiece for my holiday table! ( JK, I agree it is horrible )

How does this set get produced and yet hundreds of brilliant ideas sets never see the light of day?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Definetly a pilgrim, albeit a very terrible one. I also thought it was a witch on first glance because it looks so creepy.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm just worried where the top stem of the pumpkin is, because it's clearly shown in the illustration.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^Wow, you UK guys really don't know anything about thanksgiving ;-)

And an already horrible product is taken to a whole new level! Ha!

Gravatar
By in Poland,

I don't get this hate for this set. It's quite funny.
By the way - is this chicken leg long or short version?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don't really mind this set. The face is a little crazy, but no more than how some dolls look. The problem is that unless they keep doing a turkey every other year they are going to end up not having anything to put out.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Has anyone else noticed his eyes are looking two opposite directions.... maybe as a result of that absent pumpkin stem.....

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Huw....no one has pilgrims like this in their culture! :)

Lego is soooo fortunate they didn't try an indian and have it come out scary like this, lol

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If this is for Thanksgiving (and it undoubtedly is) why is he throwing away the drumstick in one image whilst being greedy & having 2 drumsticks in the other? The pilgrims are not remembered for being extravagant, rapacious or profligate but are remembered for being thankful for what they had. Are am I missing something..... such as a particular pilgrim character that this is based on?

Gravatar
By in United States,

This character is very disturbing!

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

^^He is not "throwing away the drumstick" - he is joggling (with two drumsticks) as indicated by the white lines.

What the meaning of this is, I have no idea.

Gravatar
By in United States,

(:in John Wayne voice) That's a goddamned pilgrim, pilgrim! :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

By the size of the drumsticks, it looks more like he killed a chick than a full grown turkey.

I can imagine these will be 50% off at most stores after Thanksgiving.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Reminds me of some really creepy eighties horror movies. Talking and killing ventriloquist puppets and all... brrr.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Thanks @Bok2, I had not seen the white lines on my small screen. Still none the wiser what it means but good to know.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Haven't been impressed by any of the seasonal sets this year, really miss the vignettes.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It's the eyes, isn't it? They're too far apart...*

Look at 40203 (vampire), 40086 (bunny), or 40091 (turkey): all have the same creepy 2-stud gap between one-stud eyes. On the other hand, 40202 (chick), 40092 (reindeer) and the bear from 31052: super cute!

(* reminds me of an obscure Belfast joke)

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Wow, I only just noticed that he's sitting on top of the pumpkin ... and the pumpkin's stem is displayed quite prominently in the two illustrated pumpkins, there.

No wonder he's rolling his eyes in two different directions.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

bit disappointed we don't have thanksgiving here in the UK as I so want that in pride of place as a holiday show piece.....er maybe not. very very weird.
