If you haven’t received your physical copy of the 2020 LEGO Catalog (January-May), then you might be glad to know that it is now available for download right here. I still yet to receive a physical copy of the catalog from my local LEGO store so it will be nice to leaf through this digital copy for the meantime. Here’s a quick look at what to expect inside.
Much of its contents are, should I say, common knowledge already to most of us especially that this week marks the release of more than a hundred new-for-2020 LEGO sets over at LEGO Shop@Home. Same as before, the 2020 LEGO Catalog for the first half of the year features a mix of both previously offered and upcoming sets. Noteworthy are those from the LEGO Creator series such as the Monster Burger Truck (31104) and the Townhouse Toy Store (31105). The Trolls are also prominently featured in the 2020 LEGO Catalog with their LEGO Trolls World Tour sets such as Volcano Rock City Concert (41254) and Pop Village Celebration (41255) taking the center stage. Other popular, non-licensed themes such as LEGO City and Hidden Side also have their share of new-for-January sets that are included in the catalog. On top of my must-have lists are the Ice Cream Truck (60253), Tuning Workshop (60258), Haunted Fairground (70432), and Lighthouse of Darkness (70431) just to name a few.
Love them or hate them, another point of interest for some is LEGO’s official announcement of the arrival of the LEGO Minions Rise of Gru tie-in sets. There is no specific release date mentioned since the initial info went out from June of last year, but LEGO confirms that these sets will be on store shelves beginning this summer.
With 2020 coinciding with the release of LEGO CMF Series 20, LEGO has also confirmed that its next wave of LEGO Collectible Minifigures will come out this May. Though this is not entirely new since some LEGO fan sites have pointed this out when they got an early copy of their catalog last December, seeing that LEGO consistently confirms the release of its next CMF in May surely builds up the hype.
Needless to say, there are a lot of things to look out for this 2019 and I’m excited to see what LEGO has in store for us in the next few months. Be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home for all the latest sets that are available now. Comment down below your first-for-2020 LEGO set purchase this January. Which one tops your list?
