Description

Hook any number of goats up to this sleigh and Christmas is off. We just did a display at our bank-owned State Fair, and just before tearing down I watched a girl literally having to drag her goat out of the building. Fortunately for her, goat hooves don’t grip well on sealed concrete. The body may not be right, but the antlers look like North American caribou. As discussed in the previous article’s comment section, reindeer and caribou are basically different names for the same species (Rangifer tarandus). In Europe, particularly where they’ve been domesticated, they’re called reindeer. In North America, they mostly roam wild, and the name appears to have come from a French bastardization of the Algonquin word “qalipu”." I have created PDF instructions for both a 4 and 9 reindeer version, and included some notes on making an 8 reindeer version below. The design of the base is modular, so that it can really be configured for any number reindeer, though I assume there is some practical limit. Yeah, but you’re still in the left column. I was trying to turn that into “David”, but there’s a cleft right where the lower point of the “v” needs to be. A generous selection of gifts is provided. I don't know if the skis are intended as presents or Santa's personal pair used for the last leg of his deliveries.

The one complaint I have about the sleigh is that the dark grey runners beneath it are a bit flimsy since they’re not connected to each other. It’s not a big deal if this set is going to be a display piece, but since I plan on playing around with my kids, it will need all the sturdiness it can get. I plan on remedying this by using a 1×4 tile to connect the runners together. The main inventory listed for this MOC is for the 9 reindeer version, but I've also included an HTML parts list for the 4 reindeer version, so that you can adjust the part quantities if that is the version you are building.

Details

Tartalmaz egy Mikulás minifigurát, 4 rénszarvas figurát levehető, díszített nyergekkel, 8 megépíthető, „becsomagolt” ajándékot, valamint egy gitárt, egy pár sílécet és egy plüssmacit is. Since the reindeer and sleigh all move, the reins are not rigidly clipped to the reindeer, like they are in the set. The clips need to be removed from the reindeer and a few replaced with a bar for the reins to rest on. These parts are all noted in the instructions and included in the parts lists, but it might not be immediately obvious how they are used. You can watch the build video below to see how this is done at the 2:55 time. Intézz el egy garantált látogatást a Mikulástól! A LEGO® A Mikulás szánja (40499) tökéletes elő-karácsonyi ajándék, ami bármelyik otthont ünnepi vidámsággal tölti meg. A gyermekek és felnőttek egyaránt örömmel fogják megépíteni és kiállítani a díszes szánt, amihez 4 rénszarvas figura is tartozik. A szán telis-tele van ajándékokkal, köztük gitárral, egy pár síléccel és egy plüssmacival. A Mikulásnak természetesen egy listája is van, amin látja, hogy idén ki volt jó gyerek! A gyermekek akár a barátaikat is kihívhatják egy kincskereső versenyre. Vajon megtalálják az elrejtett karácsonyi meglepetéseket?

At about 30cm long, it's a sizeable and impressive model that will look great in your winter village, particularly alongside this year's 10293 Santa's Visit. There have been more than 30 versions of a Santa Claus minifigure, but I think this one is the best. He’s the same Santa as the one that appears in the new LEGO Winter Village Collection 10293 Santa’s Visit. It’s nice to get a new minifigure twice in one year, with this Santa having new dual-molded legs that simulate his snow boots. I only have the elf village and gingerbread as I have just about every large 'big boy' set and the wife doesn't want me completely taking over Christmas with Lego too and leaving no space for the 'family' traditional nativity we all seem to have... Those two builds are so unique and pretty with the most up to date techniques they just don't need much else for a great seasonal display IMO.

The colors on the mould on the other hand is not red deer or reindeer, but white-tailed deer. Probably since Disney (and other manufactures) do not think NA consumers can imagine anything other than what is right outside their window so they made Bambi a white-tailed deer (it is originally a roe deer in the original books by Felix Salten) and santa's reindeer at least in color white-tailed deer. You know, I think you’re right. Jose looks right if the “s” is a bit dangly. And Susanne would match the “s”, where we don’t have any clear instance of “z” to compare against. The antlers are not reindeer/caribou ones, but red deer. The hole mould is a red deer stag, since it was made for HP in the UK where they have them. The closest species to that in NA is the elk. If you are building an 8 reindeer version, you can start with the instructions for the 4 reindeer version and build two additional reindeer base modules to extend it. The reins can be extended in the same way as for the 9 reindeer version, without the 2 bars and hilts at the end.

For both versions of the instructions, the parts list assumes you already own 1 copy of set 40499 Santa’s Sleigh. For the 9 reindeer version you will, of course, also need an extra 5 reindeer. If you buy a second copy of the set to get 4 of those reindeer, you will get most of the parts needed to extend the reins as well.This modification to set 40499 Santa's Sleigh is for a base that makes the reindeer gallop and the sleigh move up and down. Under his beard there's another white beard. The head's part number is not in the database, so I assume it is new.
