LEGO Announces 2020 Chinese New Year Sets

The 2019 Chinese New Year sets caused a huge frenzy. The cause for this was obvious – they were initially really hard to get hold of and they also happened to look amazing.

Today LEGO has announced two new Chinese New Year sets for 2020 and once again they are brilliant.

80104 Lion Dance

The Lion Dance set vividly reproduces a well-loved scene of the Spring Festival and is sure to evoke fond memories of the traditional festival. The set features 5 beautifully decorated small lion figurines and a percussionists’ stage with an awesome drumming function. An accompanying temple gate is decorated with LEGO tiles featuring traditional patterns. The set also comes complete with 8 minifigures including lion dancers and a man in rat costume to mark the Year of the Rat. Additional accessory elements such as the red ‘best wishes’ scroll, red orb, cabbage, calligraphy brush and a rocket firework are included to inspire unlimited role-play.

80105 Chinese New Year Temple Fair

The Chinese New Year Temple Fair set captures a beloved event often seen in towns and cities throughout China around the lunar new year. The set includes stalls displaying a vast, colourful array of LEGO versions of authentic items you would find at a Temple Fair. Everything from barbecue dishes to candy, toys, vases and dough figurines are lovingly re-created ion LEGO form. The set also includes 14 minifigures. Eagle-eyed LEGO fans will notice that the family from last year’s Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner set make an appearance, continuing the story of their Spring Festival celebrations.

I am pretty impressed with both sets. They will be available in Australia on December 26th. The press release mentions an Australian price of $99.99 but I don’t know which of the two sets that applies to (maybe both?). Once I know more I’ll update the article.

Who’s excited?

    These sets are truly spectacular. So detailed and beautiful, lots of new printed pieces and recolours. I am still disappointed over how difficult/impossible last year’s ones were to obtain, even here in Oz. (Obviously I never managed to get either of them). Hopefully they make plenty of stock of these ones.
