How many of you remember looking through LEGO catalogs as a kid, checking off all the sets you wanted Santa to deliver. If so, the cover of this 1992 U.S. Holiday Shop at Home catalog is sure to rekindle many fond memories!
The boy is looking through an earlier Shop at Home catalog, which prominently features the Metroliner and Metro Station sets on the front cover. I’ve included the cover of that catalog for you to take a closer look.
Folowing our first “25 Days of Trainvertising” post, a BMR Facebook fan pointed out an error on the front cover. The cover featured the train from set 4563 (Load and Haul Railroad). Evidently, a 2×4 red brick was missing from the front of the locomotive.
This catalog comes to us from 1994, so LEGO had a fully year to fix the mistake. However, they must have used the same locomotive in this photograph because it is still missing the 2×4 brick! Perhaps Majisto made it disappear.
The image itself is really fun to look at, though. A snow-covered Metro Station (set 4554). Knights on skis. What’s not to love? Throwing the image on a Christmas ornament was also a really nice touch.
