Several posts ago, I shared a new and awesome building set from LEGO with their Creator Expert “Gingerbread House”. I hope that you ended up ordering one since it looked like the perfect thing to set up near ones Christmas Tree. Now its time to showcase another new Creator Expert set with their “Bookshop and Townhouse”. It will be available in January of the coming year so take a look at the press release and all of the images that LEGO provided the media with.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: I have to say that this set looks amazing and though I’ve never attempted to build any of the expert level sets since I really don’t have the room in the apartment to set aside for such a project. I did really love the Mickey Mouse “Steamboat Willie” set though but I digress. Sure this is a pricy piece but its over 2.5K pieces and look at all the coolness that you get with it. Hopefully I will be able to see what LEGO has coming down the pike in 2020 since I am planning on applying for the annual Toy Fair when the year turns over. As a long time fan of the brand I can attest to their constantly offering up worlds of awesome. Before I go be sure to take a look at the recent item from the hit Disney+ series “The Mandalorian”. I posted that on PiercingMetal which you can examine HERE. See you next time.
