And now we come to our last item as shown by LEGO at the 4th China International Import Expo. We got reveals for an original LEGO theme and more for a licensed IP. But consider “when” we are now on the calendar. Most of the upcoming set reveals at present will launch early next year. That places them roughly in the timeframe before the celebration of Chinese New Year. The fact that the reveals were made at a Chinese import expo only becomes more appropriate. It makes perfect sense for the newest 2022 LEGO Seasonal Chinese New Year sets to make their debut there.
Brickset gives us the rundown on not one, but two 2022 LEGO Seasonal Chinese New Year sets. Preceding sets in this seasonal line went to the hilt in terms of intricate Chinese decorative design. The upcoming ones are beautiful successors to the series, as you’ll definitely agree based on these images:
Lunar New Year Traditions (80108)
Capture the excitement of Lunar New Year family traditions with this colorful LEGO® toy building set (80108) for ages 8 and up. It features 6 brick-built scenes that are packed with authentic details, and each portrays different festive activities, including food shopping, making good-luck decorations, visiting family and exchanging ‘Hongbao’ red envelopes. There are separate building instructions for each of the detailed scenes so the whole family can build together, and the modules can be arranged in multiple ways to create a unique display.
Lunar New Year Ice Festival (80109)
Get in the mood for celebration with this LEGO® Lunar New Year Ice Festival building set (80109) for ages 8 and up. It features a highly detailed winter scene with a brick-built frozen lake, equipment rental shop, sweet potato vendor’s cart, photo booth, chun ice sculpture, vending machine, penguin-shaped sled, ski slope, snow-capped tree and more.
Expect these seasonal LEGO Chinese New Year sets to arrive in the Asia-Pacific Region on Christmas, December 25. The rest of the world must wait until January 1, 2022.
