LEGO Review – 40139 Limited Edition Gingerbread House (& MOC)

LEGO Moc Gingerbread House by The Allergy Chef

So, as you can see, I was greedy. I got 2 🙂 I started by following some of the framing instructions. I didn’t want to deviate too far from the original house in that regard, mainly because of the limited number of pieces I was dealing with. From there, I had to add some pieces from our collection. Mainly, I had to being in some 6×8 plates for the base since the original is rounded on all 4 corners. I used the extra rounded ones for the roof.

Once I had the base in place, I did the windows with a little difference from the original, and also had to pull out the last bit of mason bricks that I had in this colour to fill it out properly. Once the building was complete, it was on to the roof. I followed the original design, but added the rounded pieces leftover from the base. I also added extra icicles. For the top with cupcake swirls, I added extras of those as well. You’ll notice that the roof is extended past the edge of the house. There’s an extra 6 studs on the roof, and I love the way it turned out.

Finally, there was the chimney and decorations. I felt that 2 ice cream pieces looked too wimpy, so I went a little over board. What can I say? I love ice cream. For the outside decorations, I only added a few printed cookies from our collection, and extra green ice creams as well as orange-yellow ones.

I think I am willing to give up a few of my toes in exchange for a modular sized gingerbread house. Oh how amazing that would be…
