BrickGeekz has managed to grab a screenshot of the LEGO Creator Expert Fairground Carousel (10257). The spoiler has come from the LEGO Brand Store Calendar for June 2017 and confirms the rumors I raised in my weekly news roundup a few days ago.

At quick glance it looks like the Carousel is slightly smaller than the original Grand Carousel which sat on a 48×48 base plate. This time round the new Carousel sits on a modified 40×40 baseplate with unusual trimmed off corners. I would hazard a guess the Carousel will be 4-5 studs smaller than original.
Though smaller the new Carousel does seem to pack some colourful detail with a Swan, Pink Flamingo, Elephant, Tiger and unknown 5th car. Hopefully the Carousel will be motorized with Power Functions – I can’t see why not.
With the release of this first image I have no doubt LEGO will be officially launching this set in the coming days, so stay tuned for more information.
