Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 from 7 reviews

I got this free with the purchase of the winter village and it was a great little extra item. It didn't take very long to put together and immediately went on my mantle for display. It's a fun little piece that will probably be pulled out at Christmas for years to come.

Smaller than The palm on your hand. A total rip off! They are taking advantage of Christmas shoppers. Do not order this product

Recommendation: no 4 / 5 by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

In my opinion, the limited edition LEGO Seasonal Nutcracker (40254) is a great little set that looks faithful to their wooden counterparts. The completed build is actually bigger than I expected and makes a nice item for the mantle. Like with the modern nutcrackers, this LEGO version also can not crack nuts and there's even a warning on the box stating it. There's still a few more weeks until you can get your copy of the set during Black Friday or a week earlier for VIPs.

It's a engaging little build. I love the colour scheme and the generous use of warm gold for accenting on the torso, as well as the nutcracker's expressive face. The use of the jumper plates to create offset connections between the main portion of the build is very effective in creating a realistic model.

It's quite a fun build, with lots of studs-out details and odd-width sections attached via half-stud-offset connections. As a display model, I expect to see this lovely figure on many a LEGO fan's mantel for years to come.
