Frozen Friday: Missed Bricks for Christmas

Leave a comment

Frozen is coming to Lego, but sadly not in time for Christmas.  The Telegraph reported at the beginning of the month that the new Frozen sets would be available in the Nordic and Baltic regions next week, but they wouldn’t hit stores in the United States and the UK until January. Apparently even guaranteed sales couldn’t advance the toy giant’s timetable.

“It’s not so important for us with Frozen,” said Lego CEO Jorgen Vig Knudstorp. “It is definitely across all categories a very strong property, a wonderful movie, but for us, it’s a minor thing.”

Two of the sets have been previewed so far. Set 41062 LEGO Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Palace will include Anna, Elsa, and Olaf among its 292 pieces.  And 14001 Olaf is a fifty two piece set aimed at younger builders.

It’s certainly possible that intrepid fans will be able to find these, and others, in time for the holidays from third party resellers. Prices will be inflated and the instructions might be incomprehensible, though.
