If you have holiday money burning a hole in your wallet and are looking for some new Friends sets to buy, then LEGO Shop@Home is the place to be. They have put all of the new January 2014 wave of Friends for sale for immediate purchase and delivery. In addition to the few sets we’ve revealed here before, there are a two new ones that we are just now seeing: 41056 Heartlake News Van and 41057 Heartlake Horse Show.
If you’re still doing some Christmas shopping and are having a hard time finding a good gift for that LEGO Friends maniac in your life, keep your eyes peeled for some of the 2014 sets. They sometimes trickle out onto store shelves early depending on when they get their shipments. 41037 Stephanie’s Beach House is new for 2014 and was found at a Toys’R'Us. We went ahead and purchased it and will be doing a review of the set real soon.
If you do venture out to a Toys’R'Us store in hopes of finding some new sets, please be aware of the “TRU tax”. Toys’R'Us stores typically add an additional markup on top of MSRP, and this markup increases the closer it gets to Christmas.
We’ve reported before on new Friends sets for January 2014 so take a look at the images in that article to know what to look out for.
Some more January 2014 sets have been revealed, and if you’re a fan of horses then you’re in for a treat. One of the sets revealed is 41039 Sunshine Ranch and it sounds just like what the title says. It’s the largest set for the January line, weighing in at 721 pieces, and it features 2 horses, a foal, some rabbits and other animals. The building seems a little weird. It’s neither a barn, a stable, nor a farmhouse, but looks like a little of each. It’s only a facade, so don’t expect any sort of structure. That’s too bad, because a full-sized barn that opens up down the middle would have been awesome. I suppose that something you can build on your own and knowing the LEGO community, it will be done.
The set is augmented by a second “Sunshine” set, 41026 Sunshine Harvest. It has me curious to know if there will be other Sunshine-themed sets to add to the ranch.
