We’re just two weeks away before we mark the celebration of this year’s Chinese Lunar New Year celebration and as a way to mark the occasion, LEGO has announced the release of a couple of seasonal sets that creatively reflects this event’s festivities. Two new LEGO 2020 Chinese New Year sets are now live over at LEGO Shop@Home and if you haven’t checked them out yet now is the best time to do so. Read on for more details.
If you recall, the initial wave of these Lunar New Year inspired sets first appeared last year as limited-edition sets released only in select countries in the Asia Pacific region. Needless to say, LEGO fans in other parts of the globe were not really that pleased with LEGO’s move in offering these sets in select regions only, considering the fact that these sets may well also cater to other LEGO fans who are into collecting LEGO vignette type sets. Eventually, LEGO listened and I’m personally glad to see that LEGO has embraced the fact the diverse interest of the LEGO community in general.
If you’re planning to get these LEGO 2020 Chinese New Year sets, it will also be helpful if you make your purchases starting January 13 to get the exclusive LEGO Year of the Rat (40355) seasonal set. Click on the following affiliate links to know more about these sets. Happy building!
