The past few years, LEGO has released exclusive ornaments as part of promotions and for 2016, they’ve continued to do so with the LEGO Christmas Toy Soldier Ornament (5004420). It is currently available for free with purchases of $50 or more at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected], while supplies last. The Toy Soldier is the largest of these types of ornaments to be released coming in at 34 pieces.
Like with the previous ornaments, the Toy Soldier comes in a resealable package which holds the blue fabric bag the parts are in. The contents include two small bags this time, the instructions, and the string.
The build is pretty straightforward as you build from the bottom up. I do like the use of the 1×2 plate with the handles on the sides for his moustache. When we first saw an image of the set, we couldn’t see if it included the printed tile for the year but sure enough we do get a printed 2×2 tile with 2016 on it.
Overall, I do like the new LEGO Christmas Toy Soldier Ornament (5004420) as it’s another addition to the growing collection of promtional Christmas tree ornaments with the Train (5002813) in 2014 and the Christmas Tree (5003083) in 2015. If you can’t get the Toy Soldier Ornament for whatever reason, you can build your own with the instructions below, minus the exclusive 2016 2×2 tile.
