Here’s the ticket booth where the ride operator sells tickets to go on the merry-go-round. A new element is the printed ticket tile which you can see in the photo above.
There are 7 minifigures included in the set , the ticket booth/ride operator, a small female child and her grandmother, and a family of 4. As you can see above, the set is impressively large, measuring over 12” (32cm) high, 14” (38cm) wide and 13” (35cm) deep. The motor they suggest makes it go around very fast. Hopefully someone else with more expertise is able to chime in!The reason they’ve changed the website date is that they don’t know if they’ll have enough for “shop at home” buyers then. And yeah, it’s definitely not an “improvement” over the original – that’s really hard to beat!
I think it’s really nice to have some variety. Love the colours and it really pulls the entire build together. The pictures make it look smaller than it should be in actuality. Lego is starting a good trend to re-release updated highly sought after retired sets from the past!
The different look to the original is also key like you mentioned. Lego could release a sound brick option as it would make it even more special. It would’ve probably inflated the price too much had they did, but yeah, here’s hoping there are 3rd party options!
Although we spy plenty of elements in new colors, however, we haven’t spotted any completely new elements apart from the cloth roof panels. Also features a sturdy, buildable base for easy transportation. Buy your ticket at the booth, take the stairs to the boarding platform and choose your favorite animal ride. Accessory elements include a camera, ice cream, candy and a hot dog in a bun. New decorated elements include printed tickets and printed storybook tiles. Includes lots of molded golden elements, reflective golden labels and medium-blue/dark-blue elements. Measures over 12” (32cm) high, 14” (38cm) wide and 13” (35cm) deep. The gold panels (2×4 and round 2×2) around the central structure, and the gold circles around the edge of the roof look like they’re stickers. The ticket tile and the 2×2 dark-blue “diamonds” with the open book around the edge of the roof look printed. For that matter, so would any parts in colors that had previously been produced, but that had a gap in production that was long enough that they purged their inventory and retired the previous element number. It kept losing pieces, they kept falling off. The animals and the top was a pleasure to work on.
