LEGO has recently released the latest LEGO Seasonal set of the year with the Painting Easter Eggs (40121) set. For 2015, LEGO has changed their format of the sets to a vignette-type set which started with the Valentine’s Day Dinner (40120). For the Easter set, it has 153 pieces and retails for $9.99. The box contains three unnumbered bags and an instructions booklet.
There are two minifigures in this set, a male and female. The male appears to be a the child with his short blue legs. He also wears the white Classic Space floating spaceguy design with green arms. He has a double-sided head with an evil look on one side and a frightened look as his expression.
The female wears a blue blouse with blue legs. She has a smirking expression on one side and an unsure look on the other. Her accessories includes a paintbrush and a color palette.
The main draw of the set is the 8×8 vignette itself with shows a scene of the minifigures preparing for Easter celebration in the kitchen. The floor has a checkerboard black and white design over some grey plates. In the middle of the room is a table where the female is painting some white eggs which are made from some light bulb pieces. The male minifigure has the frightened expression because he accidentally dropped an egg and made a mess on the floor.
On the back wall, you have part of the kitchen complete with a stove with an oven, a sink, and a countertop with cabinets. Inside the oven are some cookies baking. Some other builds for the kitchen include a coffeemaker, a pot boiling an egg, and some flowers. Rounding out the kitchen area is a window and a wall clock above it with some jars on a hanging shelf.
On the outside wall, there’s some details including some dark tan and dark red masonry bricks.
Lastly, there’s also a small garden which is just a green 1/4 circle piece with a chicken and an egg.
Just like the Valentine’s set from last month, the Painting Easter Eggs (40121) looks to be another hit with LEGO fans. I would’ve had the set reviewed a little earlier but it was quickly sold out at my LEGO Store before I knew it was released and I had to wait for more to be restocked.
The set itself has a fairly playful setting. You have the older female minifigure preparing for Easter while the younger male minifigure is messing around and eventually breaking one of the eggs.
If you want to pick up this set on [email protected], I would not hesitate as these little vignettes do tend to sell out pretty quickly and it may be a little harder to find them later.
