It's cropped up in a few shops in various places and was available as part of a promotion at shop.LEGO.com but the easiest way to get hold of it if you can't get it locally is on the secondary market. BrickLink seller BergensBricks is currently offering it for about £4.50 / $6.
Let's see if it's worth tracking down...
For a polybag it's quite a substantial build. Its 74 pieces, mostly bricks, plates and slopes, combine to build Santa Claus, who stands 8cm/3" high, his sack, and three gifts.
His beard, belly and hat have been captured perfectly and, unlike last year's seasonal set 40206 Santa, is unlikely to scare little children.
The sack is attached to his back with a clip which allows it to be removed easily. There is no opening in which to insert the gifts, unfortunately, but that would of course increase its size considerably.
It's delightful little set that would make an ideal stocking filler, and is of course an essential purchase for collectors of polybags.
Speaking of which, in the article about collecting them that I published in the summer, I mentioned that I needed 30036 Buggy Racer. Shortly afterwards Martin in the Czech Republic contacted me and offered me one, so apart from the last couple of 2017 ones I need to track down, my collection of 30xxx polybags is now complete. Thanks Martin!
Thanks to Cédric for sending me this set to review.
