Back in January, LEGO gave us some early hints on what we can expect from the LEGO Friends summer 2020 sets, and now more info is starting to pour in. Thanks to third-party LEGO retailer Lucky Bricks, we now get to see what some of these sets have to offer.
Two sets, in particular, might be of interest to most LEGO fans and builders considering the new elements and pieces that go with them.
The LEGO Friends Summer Fun Water Park (41430) is said to come in at 1,001 pieces and will retail for €99.99 making it the largest set in this series. As I’ve mentioned in one of my reports of the Nuremberg Toy Fair, LEGO will be introducing some pretty interesting new pieces together with this new line of LEGO Friends Summer 2020 sets. Most prominent in this set is the use of new transparent tube elements used for the water slide. There’s a lot of potential for this new piece especially considering that it is large enough to have a minifigure or even a minidoll fit inside of it.
The LEGO Friends Jungle Rescue Base (41424) also boasts of new molds and pieces, coming in at 648 pieces with an expected retail price of €79.99. Perhaps the obvious selling point of this set will be the new mother and child elephant figures that go along with it. Both of these figures seem to be made of a single, solid figure usually found in many LEGO Duplo sets. It’s a great addition, in my opinion, to mashup such Duplo-like figures with standard LEGO sets.
Both of these LEGO Friends Summer 2020 sets are expected to arrive in LEGO Stores and at LEGO Shop@Home starting in June. We’re still looking forward to more LEGO set reveals in the next few weeks, so stay tuned, stay home, and be safe! Thanks to Promobricks for more info.
