After giving us a glimpse of the first wave of LEGO Seasonal sets for 2021, Brickset has also shared a trio of LEGO BrickHeadz 2021 sets that we can expect in the first quarter of 2021. Similarly, LEGO made the reveal via its declaration of conformity as part of its legal process of declaring the safety of their products. The images below are also not at par with the high-res ones that we usually include in our posts, but they’re enough to give us an idea of what we can anticipate from them.
Like the LEGO Seasonal Year of the Ox (40417), this first LEGO BrickHeadz 2021 set celebrates the rich tradition and celebration of the Chinese Lunar New Year. The LEGO BrickHeadz Chinese New Year Pandas (40466) features three cute, brick-built pandas: two baby pandas and one adult panda, each with a distinct look and personality of its own. These adorable brick creatures are accentuated by a decorative tree with lanterns that are very much the same as what we can see from LEGO’s Chinese Spring Lantern Festival sets.
Further down the road, we have a couple of BrickHeadz sets added to its roster of animals and pet-inspired builds. The LEGO BrickHeadz German Shepherd (40440) and Shorthair Cats (40441) seem to be a part of a new Pets subtheme that focuses on our buddies at home. Similar to the New Year Pandas, each of these LEGO BrickHeadz Pets feature two builds- that of a bigger, adult pet and a smaller, younger one.
The New Year Pandas are expected to retail for $19.99, while the LEGO BrickHeadz Pets may be offered within the usual $9.99 price range. They’re also expected to be available in January 2021 so be sure to keep an eye on them over at LEGO Shop@Home. I’ll update this post once better images are available, but for now, check these out.
