Overall, the Charles Dickens Tribute is a decent set. However, compared with holiday sets from years past, it is not my favorite. I wish the designers had picked a more recognizable or iconic scene from the story. This one does not say “Christmas Carol" to me. Additionally, opening the book to reveal a scene is a more fun idea. However, you get a good selection of bricks and a good number of Minifigures for a set of this size.
If you are a fan of the literary classics and are about to drop a bit of cash on some LEGO this weekend, then make sure you spend enough to qualify for this set. It's a nice little build.
It's a remarkably substantial build and great value for being a promotional item. It serves as a fun and interesting display piece, perfect for the festive period to either start or add to a collection of Christmas and holiday-themed LEGO display sets (of which there are many).
There aren't a lot of Christmas-themed gift-with-purchase sets that would prompt me to buy something solely with an eye on the free goodie, but I think this would be one. I absolutely adore the concept of celebrating famous creative figures through small, detailed vignettes, and I hope that LEGO continues to do them.
The LEGO Seasonal Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) is a neat little set that fans of A Christmas Carol may enjoy. The minifigures are the main part of the story so it's nice to have them included. The build is interesting but I would have preferred if the scene was on the inside pages and not on the cover. Speaking of the outside cover, I have no idea why there's a pullout holder on the spine. I honestly don't see any purpose of it since it can't even store a minifigure.
It's a delightful and surprisingly detailed set featuring a scene from a much-loved classic Christmas book and a multitude of film adaptations, so I am sure it will be a well-received gift with purchase. It's a shame, then, that the spend threshold of $150 / €150 / £150 will put it out of the reach of many.
