First reviews of LEGO Winter Village Collection 10293 Santa’s Visit arrive online

The first reviews of this year’s LEGO Winter Village set have surfaced online, giving us a better idea of what to expect from 10293 Santa’s Visit.

Initially (and accidentally) revealed yesterday ahead of a full unveiling today, the 1,445-piece set will be available to order on September 16 for VIP members. That’s less than a week away – but if you’d like a sneak peek at 2021’s festive fix, the first reviews of 10293 Santa’s Visit are now starting to pop up online.

Beyond the Brick’s Brian Saviano is among the reviewers taking the model to task ahead of launch, and he’s full of praise for designer Chris McVeigh’s first stab at a set in this subtheme, calling it a ‘very charming LEGO Winter Village set that would be a perfect addition to your line-up’.

“There’s just enough there that it has a lot of variety compared to everything else that’s released [in] at least the last five years,” he says. “I love the way that the roofs are designed; the parts usage; the details – everything is excellent, and I do recommend it for you this holiday season.”

10293 Santa’s Visit will be available from September 16 for VIPs and October 1 for everyone else, for £79.99 / $99.99 / €89.99 – which makes it the best value Winter Village set (at least in the UK) since 2009.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.

    This set (10293) looks amazing with some great new features, the roof system looks so much better, just think need to be gentle… Thank you Lego for making this set a reasonable price as some of these sets lately have become very expensive I.e the motorized Bulldozer.!!!!!
    I can’t wait to order this set and add to my festive collection ???
