LEGO Seasonal 2016 Snowglobe (40223) Now Available on [email protected]

LEGO Seasonal 2016 Christmas Ornament (40223)

If you missed out on the LEGO Seasonal Snowglobe (40223) promotion from last year, LEGO is now selling it on [email protected] for $9.99 with a limit of five per customer. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing that LEGO is selling previous promotions as customers had to spend at least $99 to get it originally however this may start a trend of LEGO reselling their previous promo items at a later time for those who missed it. Let me know what you guys think about LEGO reselling the Snowglobe in the comments. Check out my review of the Snowglobe here.

LEGO Seasonal Snowglobe (40223) Review

LEGO Seasonal Snowglobe (40223)

We’re getting close to the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend and for the last couple of years, LEGO has been giving away some great holiday sets for their gift with purchase promo and it looks like 2016 continues the trend.

LEGO Seasonal Snowglobe (40223)

For this year, LEGO will be giving away the Seasonal Snowglobe (40223) with purchases of $99 or more from November 25-28, while supplies last. VIP members already got early access to the set this past weekend. The Snowglobe consists of a 215 pieces which are in three un-numbered bags. If you check the parts inventory, there are a number of rare pieces in this set.

The build of the Snowglobe is in three parts, the base, globe area, and the pull-out drawer.

The base is 8×8 house-type setting with windows on the sides and a hole in the front for the drawer later on.

For the globe area, you have the Santa minifigure inside along with a Christmas tree. There are also fourteen 1×1 white round tiles to represent the snow.

Lastly, you have the drawer which is also the front of the house complete with the door and torches. You’ll notice that when building the drawer, there are some unsightly yellow bricks that do not match the overall color scheme of the Snowglobe itself.

LEGO Seasonal Snowglobe (40223)

Overall, the LEGO Seasonal Snowglobe (40223) is a very neat set. Although we’ve seen some good sets during the holidays in the past, this year’s set is probably one of the best produced so far. The “snow” pieces don’t actually float but … Continue

LEGO Seasonal Exclusive Limited Edition Snowglobe (40223) Coming in November

LEGO Seasonal 2016 Christmas Ornament (40223)

If you didn’t see our post of the November 2016 LEGO Store Calendar, there are some pretty cool promotional gift with purchases during the month including the exclusive limited edition Snowglobe (40223). The Snowglobe was actually revealed way back in January and even the instuctions were available for a short time before being taken down.

The Snowglobe (40223) has the same aesthetics as a normal snowglobe with Santa and a Christmas tree being the centerpiece. The bottom area is actually a storage area that you can pull out using white plates with handle to put your keepsakes in.

The Snowglobe will only be available during Brick/Black Friday/Cyber Monday, November 25-28 with purchases of $99 or more, while supplies last. I have a feeling that it won’t last all four days at LEGO Stores and on [email protected] so if you plan on making a purchase, do it early during the promotional timeframe. Also, this if for North America and I’m not sure when Europe will have their turn.

LEGO Seasonal 2016 Christmas Ornament (40223) Building Instructions

LEGO Seasonal 2016 Christmas Ornament (40223)

A few days ago, a new image of the LEGO Seasonal 2016 Christmas Ornament (40223) showed up online and now the instructions are also available if you want to build your own. Keep in mind that the 8×8 radar trans-clear radar dish (6093714) is a brand new piece so you may have to substitute something else in the meantime. You might also want to download the PDF while it is still available as I assume that LEGO didn’t want the instructions to be released this early in the year. This set will most likely be available during the holiday season as one of the LEGO promotions.

LEGO Seasonal 2016 Christmas Ornament (40223)

We’ve just gotten over the holiday season but Brickset has already posted an image of this year’s exclusive LEGO Seasonal set. The 2016 Christmas Ornament (40223) features Santa and Christmas tree in a container with a little house build below it sort of like a snowglobe. This looks to be one of the coolest looking Seasonal set so far. It’ll most likely be available either in October or November when the holiday promotions start. Thanks to BB8fan for the email.
