Easter is just around the corner and as as tradition, LEGO has released a Seasonal set with the Easter Egg Hunt (40237). The set has 145 pieces and retails for $9.99 although you can usually find it for half off after Easter has passed. The contents of the box include three unnumbered bags, a loose 6×8 baseplate, and the instructions.
The LEGO Seasonal 2017 Easter Egg Hunt (40237) has started to show up at LEGO Stores and on the back of the instructions, it shows this year’s LEGO Seasonal Halloween set. From the looks of it, the set shows off a large gate and in the background, there’s presumably a haunted house with an orange sky backdrop. There’s also a cauldron with some food stuff in it. The minifigures include a man and a skeleton. It’s cool to have an early look at the set although we won’t be released until September/October. So far this year, these Seasonal sets have been very promising compared to last year’s sets.

For my first review of the year, I have the new LEGO Seasonal Romantic Valentine Picnic (40236). This year’s Seasonal sets goes back to the vignette style sets that were more popular than the character builds from last year. The set contains 126 pieces and retails for $9.99. The contents of the box include three un-numbered bags, an 8×8 green plate, and the instructions. The back of the instructions show the next LEGO Seasonal set with the Easter Egg Hunt (40237).
A few days ago, we had our first look at the LEGO Seasonal Romantic Valentine Picnic (40236) and we now have our first look at the LEGO Seasonal Easter Egg Hunt (40237) set which comes from the back of the instructions. There’s no word on the piece count but it’s safe to assume that it will cost $9.99 at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected] in March.
There are official images of a new 2017 LEGO Seasonal Romantic Valentine Picnic (40236) set that has surfaced on LEGO’s servers. It appears that LEGO has gone back to the vignette-type sets from 2015 instead of the buildable character ones from this year. The set has 126 pieces and will retail for $9.99 starting in January.
Includes 2 minifigures: a boy and a girl, plus a bird figure.
Features a blooming tree, heart-shaped lawn, bouquet of flowers, red balloon and various buildable accessories and elements, including a picnic blanket, 2 sandwiches, cakes, table, 2 glasses and a bottle.
Measures over 3” (9cm) high, 4” (12cm) wide and 4” (12cm) deep.
The LEGO promotional period for the LEGO Seasonal Gingerbread Man (5005156) is now live on [email protected]. You can get for free with purchases of $50 or more from December 12-18, while supplies last. I’ve seen images of this Gingerbread Man side-by-side next to the original one from the Series 11 Collectible Minifigures (71002) and this new one is actually a little darker than the previous one however it does not come with the red “Dunk Me” cup.
There are now official images of the upcoming promotion for the LEGO Seasonal Gingerbread Man (5005156) minifigure box. You can get it for free with purchases of $50 or more at LEGO Stores and on [email protected] from December 12-18. The box is similar to the Easter Minifigure (5004486) but decorated to his theme. The Gingerbread Man himself is not exclusive as he was released back in 2013 with Series 11 Collectible Minifigures (71002). The only difference is that this one does not have the red “Dunk Me” cup as an accessory.
For those who missed him a few years ago or got into LEGO after that set retired, next week is you best chance of getting him if you’re still doing some holiday shopping. Of course you can also BrickLink him but he commands around $10 for just the minifigure.
