40484 Santa’s Front Yard Review

Another gift with purchase set – 40484 Santa’s Front Yard, will be available for VIPs for the Black Friday weekend (20th & 21st November), and an additional run time for the gift going from 26th to 29th November. To qualify for it, you’ll need to spend over AU $229 / US $170 / €170 / £170 between that time. The set portrays an elf feeding a brick built reindeer in front of a moonlit starry night in the forest. It’s fantastic!

There’s not a lot that I don’t like about this set. The floor shows a frozen river through some snow, with a mixture of colours and textures, if you can call them that. The reindeer looks fantastic, and kind of furry! The antlers are spectacular, using droid bits well.

The background trees are great, as are the built trees, although I wish they were supported on round 1×1 bricks so they could be set at a slight angle. The moon and stars are good, but I’m not sure about the row at the top? I think it kind of ruins the effect. Either way, this is a great freebie to get if you can. Jay’s Brick Blog also has a great breakdown of the Black Friday weekend offers.
