Other than its wide-array of homegrown non-licensed sets (City, Creator, Friends, DOTS, etc), LEGO’s partnership with Disney is still going strong with its introduction of new-for-January 2021 sets. LEGO online retailer Van der Meulen has now published four LEGO Disney 2021 sets expected to arrive in the first half of 2021.
These sets are yet to appear on LEGO Shop@Home, but looking at these product images published by Van der Meulen, we can now have a pretty good grasp of what to expect from them.
First off, it’s quite obvious that the winner in this initial selection is the brick-version of the elemental spirit, Bruni from Frozen 2. This rendition of Bruni the Salamander is so cute like his on-screen counterpart, that I wouldn’t mind adding him to my AFOL’s collection.
LEGO also intends to continue its brick storybook adventures with Elsa’s Storybook Adventures (43189) inspired by the first Frozen film, and two upcoming LEGO Disney 2021 sets that are a nod to the more classic Disney films of The Little Mermaid, and Cinderella.
Though it wasn’t listed yet, it is interesting to note that there are rumors that LEGO will be releasing 3 or 4 sets dedicated to Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming Raya and the Last Dragon. Though the latest animated movie is scheduled to be released in cinemas in April 2021, we might get to see some of these LEGO sets anytime soon.
For now, let’s take a look at what these sets have to offer. I’ll keep you posted once LEGO Shop@Home lists them on their site.
