LEGO Christmas Toy Soldier Ornament (5004420) Review

LEGO Christmas Toy Soldier Ornament (5004420)

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.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Toy Soldier Ornament (5004420) Official Images

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Toy Soldier Ornament (5004420)

There are now official images of the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Toy Soldier Ornament (5004420) that have been uploaded to LEGO’s servers. We first saw an image of it a few months ago but didn’t know how to acquire it until the November 2016 LEGO Store Calendar was revealed. You can get it next starting November 1 at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected] with purchases of $50 or more, while supplies last.

LEGO continues the tradition of releasing these ornaments as a promotional gift for 2016. In 2014, they released the Train (5002813) while 2015 had the Christmas Tree (5003083). Both of the previous sets had exclusive printed tiles of the years. The official images for the Toy Soldier doesn’t show a tile for 2016 but hopefully, it’ll be on the back of the build which we can’t see at the moment.
