After Toys R Us Singapore listed for pre-order two of the exclusive 2019 LEGO Asia-Pacific sets a few days ago, the same website for some reason, eventually took down the promotional, with the link supposedly pointing to the pre-order page no longer working as of this posting. Thankfully, LEGO has recently uploaded via its servers the official images of the 2019 LEGO Asia-Pacific sets, namely those of the Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) and Dragon Dance (80102). Prior to TRU Singapore’s removal of their said posting, Candid Bricks managed to take a snapshot of these sets’ respective product descriptions.
It is also interesting to note that news has been going through the LEGO Ambassadors Network (LAN) that mentions which countries these sets will be available, all of which are from the Asia Pacific region. These are: Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan. Since official images of these sets are already uploaded via LEGO’s servers then it could only mean that they will be appearing soon in certain regional portals of LEGO Shop@Home.
For LEGO fans that are not located in these abovementioned countries, then the best option for them to get these exclusive 2019 LEGO Asia-Pacific sets are from third-party resellers. Unfortunately, prices from these resellers tend to be quite steep and inflated as compared from official LEGO stores.
These sets are expected to be released on January 1, 2019 with another region-specific set – the Dragon Boat Race (80103) – to be announced later on. Check out the following images below and official product descriptions.
