If you remember some of the old Lego holiday catalogs, you may recallafew having covers that depict minifigs from different themes coming together to celebrate the holidays. I built this concept in a scene that features a gingerbread house and a Christmas tree.
Beautiful little scene! I love the technique you used to make the "icing" on the gingerbread house roof. I'd like to use a similar design to your christmas tree for a moc. What are all the green plates attached to?
Heck. I still have many of those Christmas Shop-At-Home catalogs. Anyways, very COOL (pun intended) creation. You did a good job capturing the look/feel.
I like it

Nice! Is that a ninja on the tree? And 3PO with a Vader helmet? Is that the Lego company's sig-fig Max as well? I agree that tiles would have made the ice pond look more realistic, but I understand that you didnt have any tiles. Great job and it's good to finally see something new.
And I remember receiving every one of the mentioned catalogs. And soaking them with drool, as always. Your attempt at the feel and idea is very nicely done, indeed, and I love your choice of included themes. Merry Christmas, Nannan!
What a pleasure to explore all the little detials in here. And though I know it´s bricks, I must confess it looks tasty. Thanks for posting. Oh and thank you for 'End of Days'. It was one of the first MOCs I´ve ever seen and a great motivation for me.
Too many awesome things on this MOC to name them all, but my favorites are the gumdrop candy fence, the spiderman webbing icing on the roof, the kid rolling the snow to make a snow man (I really like that white boulder piece, gonna have to use it sometime) and the ice rink was a really nice touch. Great MOC.
I saw you'd put this on The Brothers Brick and was wondering when it would get here on the 'pages... this is a great scene; I love the gingerbread house and the tree. Did you consider using tiles for the skating pond?
