LEGO Creator Expert Carousel (10257)

Oh Boy, what a beauty it is. This set really captures everything LEGO is about: creative building, lovely details, sophisticated construction and most definitely a ton of fun.

I am also really impressed how well LEGO manages to keep everything secret this year. Except for an image of a store calendar earlier this week, the official press release today was the first impression of this set and that’s how things should be, because this way the wait is only one month (even less with VIP early access) until you can hold this set in your hands.

Press Release:

10257 Carousel, 2,670 pieces.
US $199.99 - CA $249.99 - DE 179.99€ - UK £159.99 - DK 1499.00 DKK
Available 1st June. (Early access for VIPs in mid-May is likely but unconfirmed.)

Stalker

~ Previously@chocobromikannes​​​ ~


Ilwe’ran stopped right in the middle of the path leading to the south exit of Bentbranch Meadows. They were there. The person who was following him each time he would stop by to fetch his biweekly fruit order. The faint scent of hay and Chocobo which was always surrounding their presence was making it easy to recognize them.

-Why ?- It wasn’t the first time Ilwe’ran was asking himself the question. What did that person want ? Why were they always following him and obviously hiding ?

Having enough of questions without answer, the Keeper decided to stray from his habits in hope to make his stalker react. With a calm gesture, he lifted his hands and dropped the bag he was carrying. Pears, apples and all sort of berries rolled on the floor. He uttered a soft “Crap” as he crouched and attempted to slowly gather the fruits, leaving enough time to anybody around to come helping him.

-This plan is completely stupid.- He thought after a few seconds.
