LEGO has officially announced the next direct-to-consumer set with the LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train (10254). The newest Winter Village themed set for 2016 contains 734 pieces and retails for $99.99. If you’re a VIP member, you can pick up the exclusive Winter Holiday Train starting on September 15 as stated on the September 2016 Store Calendar.
This year marks nine years since the last Holiday Train (10173) and the new one is not a re-release of the previous set unlike what happened with last year’s Winter Toy Shop (10249). One feature that the train has is the Power Functions (not included) which allows you to control it remotely which is a feature that many people wanted. In addition, you also get 16 curved train pieces to create a complete circle.
Again the LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train (10254) will be available starting on September 15 for VIPs and to the general public on October 1. Check out the press release and more images below.
