LEGO is further gearing up its roster of 2020 sets, and this next one will certainly be appreciated across Asia and the rest of the world. A new, Chinese New Year inspired set has now been officially revealed – the LEGO Lion Dance (80104).
Similar to its first collection of regional-themed sets such as the LEGO Chinese New Year Eve’s Dinner (80101), Dragon Dance (80102), and Dragon Boat Race (80103), these new-for-2020 sets continue the journey of our family Chinese New Year Eve’s family as they welcome the new lunar year.
The LEGO Lion Dance (80104) showcases five, colorfully decorated brick-built lion figures used in the traditional Lion Dance performance. It also includes 8 minifigures, and I guess plenty of minifig legs for the dancing lion figures, lol. This set is expected to be released in China and in the Asia Pacific region earlier just after Christmas on December 26, 2019 and to the rest of the world on January 10, 2020. I’ll keep you posted on the retail price and piece count of this set any time soon. For now, here’s how the LEGO Group describes the LEGO Lion Dance (80104) set.
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.
