It looks like LEGO is pushing forward with its plans of furthering wooing the AFOL community. This recent wave of third-party retailer reveals shows that there are a couple of LEGO 18+ sets on the horizon, and these sets look promising. From the short-lived LEGO Forma series to more recent LEGO mosaic offerings, now comes another series that is marketed to be one ultimate brick zen experience: the LEGO Creator Expert Botanical Collection is expected to arrive soon sometime in January next year. Check out these images courtesy of Polish online store Bonito.
These bonsai and bouquet inspired sets are both reminiscent of the creative works of Chris McVeigh and AC Pinlac. I love how the bonsai turned out, with its customizable leaf elements that can either be built as a typical green tree, or a beautiful brick rendition of cherry blossoms. Similarly, the bouquet may be modified in several ways and looks gorgeous arranged in a flower vase.
These sets are not yet listed over at LEGO Shop@Home, but we can expect a launch date of January 2021 alongside recently revealed LEGO 18+ 2021 sets such as next year’s modular, the LEGO Creator Expert Police Station (10278), and LEGO Art sets. I’ll keep you posted once these LEGO Creator Expert Botanical Collection sets are up and listed, so be sure to subscribe and keep tabs with us here on our blogsite.
