LEGO has recently released a new seasonal set with the Winter Snowball Fight (40424). It has 149 pieces and retails for $12.99. Most of us really like the vignette type sets for the seasonal ones but this one is more of a play set filled with separate things.
There are two minifigures in the set, a boy and a girl. The boy does have an exclusive torso with the olive green jacket. The ushanka style hat he wears isn’t exclusive but is nice to have.
The girl has a couple of exclusive parts including the blue jacket and the head piece. She has a double-sided head with a cute smiling expression on one side. Her accessories include a pair of skis and poles.
There’s also a gray and white husky which we’ve seen before.
The first part of the build is a ramp for the sled. The back of it has a pushing feature to launch the sled forward. It does have some rare pieces such as the trans light blue tooth and crystal pieces.
The second part of build is a snow fort. It’s nothing too special but it does have a catapult to launch some snowballs from the crate.
Also included in the set is a brick-built snowman. The interesting parts usage here is the 2×2 coupling plate for the scarf.
Lastly, there is a table with a couple of mugs and printed 1×1 round tiles of cookies.
Overall, I have mixed feelings about LEGO Seasonal Winter Snowball Fight (40424). It’s a fun little set but it doesn’t feel cohesive as all of the builds are separate and aren’t able to connect together. If you’re a fan of these seasonal sets, you will most likely get it anyways especially this the cheap price point. For me, the highlights of the set are the minifigures.
Thank you to LEGO for sending in this set for me to review. The content above represents my own opinion and not the company. Review sets sent in does not guarantee a positive review.
