It's a lot taller than I expected and has a cool train that rotates around the base
The train is on a turntable that can be rotated by twisting the top of the tree, which is connected to it through a hollow trunk. The bulk of the tree is anchored to the base at the sides using supports disguised as doors.
This cool functionality is well disguised and not apparent at first glance.
Here's a shot with a minifig for scale. It's around 8"/20cm.
Weighing in at nearly 400 pieces, this is a very nice gift with purchase, and perhaps the best Christmas tree LEGO has produced, so if you're planning to buy anything from LEGO.com, now would be a good time to do so.
