We’re just two weeks away before we mark the celebration of this year’s Chinese Lunar New Year celebration and as a way to mark the occasion, LEGO has announced the release of a couple of seasonal sets that creatively reflects this event’s festivities. Two new LEGO 2020 Chinese New Year sets are now live over at LEGO Shop@Home and if you haven’t checked them out yet now is the best time to do so. Read on for more details.
If you recall, the initial wave of these Lunar New Year inspired sets first appeared last year as limited-edition sets released only in select countries in the Asia Pacific region. Needless to say, LEGO fans in other parts of the globe were not really that pleased with LEGO’s move in offering these sets in select regions only, considering the fact that these sets may well also cater to other LEGO fans who are into collecting LEGO vignette type sets. Eventually, LEGO listened and I’m personally glad to see that LEGO has embraced the fact the diverse interest of the LEGO community in general.
If you’re planning to get these LEGO 2020 Chinese New Year sets, it will also be helpful if you make your purchases starting January 13 to get the exclusive LEGO Year of the Rat (40355) seasonal set. Click on the following affiliate links to know more about these sets. Happy building!

In case you missed out on this year’s holiday gift-with-purchase (GWP) set in the form of the LEGO Christmas Tree (40338), you might be interested to know that LEGO’s Customer Service has also uploaded the building instructions to recreate this set. You may download a copy of it right here.
It’s nice of LEGO to make the building instructions for their exclusive promotional sets – such as the Buildable Red Brick for example – available to the public particularly to LEGO fans that may have missed out on this promo. As part of its Black Friday deals, the LEGO Christmas Tree (40338) was only made available for four days from November 29 to December 2, for a minimum single-receipt purchase worth $120 USD. It obviously comes with a relatively higher qualifying purchase as compared to other promos, but as a freebie coming in at 392 pieces and with some pretty nice play features, I certainly have no qualms about it.
As much as I understand the idea of giving shopping incentives and freebies to LEGO fans, I wish that LEGO will eventually make the LEGO Christmas Tree (40338), as well as other previously released seasonal gift-with-purchase (GWP) sets such as the LEGO Christmas Carousel (40293) and LEGO Christmas Gift Box (40292) both from last year, available as regular selling items in LEGO brand stores. In my opinion, it will be nice to offer them initially as exclusive freebies but LEGO will be serving the larger LEGO community in general if they will make these sets available for sale later on.
In case you haven’t noticed yet, LEGO Shop@Home is now carrying a new promotional that will run for the next two weeks. It may not be that exciting as compared to the upcoming gift-with-purchase set such as the LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile – Limited Edition (40433) set, but still, its a nice way to celebrate the holiday season. From November 4 to 17, every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO product or merchandise worth $35 and more will entitle you to a free LEGO Creator Reindeer (40434) polybag.
As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, this latest LEGO Creator Reindeer (40434) freebie is basically a re-release of 2016’s LEGO Creator Reindeer (30474). It may not look that much but since its a promotional, I’m still glad to see a free item added in my cart. However, I strongly feel that most fans out there are holding back on their LEGO purchases until the end of this month once this year’s Black Friday deals roll in. For one, those who will make their LEGO qualifying purchases (worth $120 and more) from November 29 to December 2 will get the much better, limited-edition LEGO Christmas Tree (40338) gift-with-purchase set.
LEGO is also posed to reveal another BIG, nostalgic set that will debut on these dates. I’m positive that this display-worthy set will be revealed very soon so be sure to stay tuned.
A designer video has been released for LEGO’s 2020 Chinese Festival Special Edition sets, and it gives us a better look at their features from the perspective of the LEGO design team. The LEGO Lion Dance (80104) and the LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) are the latest sets to be included in LEGO’s roster of seasonal sets that celebrate the festivities of the Chinese Spring Festival.
The official reveals earlier today gave us a glimpse of what we can expect from these sets, and this designer video from the perspective of LEGO Product Designer, Markus Rollbühler, gives us a closer look at these sets’ play features and their highlights. Watch this.
The LEGO design team meticulously paid attention to the fine details of the Chinese Spring Festival so they can be translated well in LEGO bricks. For the LEGO Lion Dance (80104) set, they looked into the classic tale of the Nian lion and how it interacts with the objects around it. Such as when it gets a red envelope and spits out or gives out the greens (in this case a piece of lettuce) – both symbolizing good fortune and blessings for business. The final design perfectly captures the details of the Nian lion, including the unique shape of its head, eyes, and mouth. The mouth opens and closes while the build itself can be posed in many different ways thanks to the minifigure torso and legs that are included with it.
Speaking about minifigs, this set also features a new, costumed minifigure that celebrates 2020 as being the Year of the Metal Rat.
The LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) is more of a collection of several builds that when combined together creates a busy market place, giving life to the traditional Chinese Spring Festival. There are five primary builds: a shrine, and four stalls loaded with details, each highlighting a particular activity or ware. We have a food stall, a toy stall, a shadow theater, and a vase & pottery store. These are accentuated by numerous traditional Chinese decors placed across them.
Both of these 2020 LEGO Chinese Festival Special Edition sets can be displayed individually, but it will certainly look great seeing them combined together for a more immersive play experience. You can arrange the stalls around the Lion Dance performance for example, while the family checks out each of the stalls. If you already have the LEGO Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) set, then it will be great adding this to the display as well.
I’m excited to see these sets in person, and if you’re looking forward to having these sets and you’re currently based in China or in the Asia Pacific, you’ll be glad to know that both these LEGO Chinese Festival Special Edition sets will be available in these regions on December 26, 2019. If you’re outside these regions, then you’ll only have to wait a couple of weeks when they are released worldwide on January 10, 2020.
Following the reveal of the first 2020 regional-themed, seasonal set in the form of the LEGO Lion Dance (80104), LEGO has also revealed another set that celebrates 2020’s new Lunar Year festivities. The LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) has been officially unveiled and is a great addition to any existing collection that marks these festivities.
LEGO fans who are keeping track of these sets will notice that the same minifigure family included in the LEGO Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) comes back to continue their journey of celebrating the Spring Festival. If I may say, this set is the most elaborate of all the themed set under this category and even includes a huge number of detailed minifigures – 14 in total to be exact. I also appreciate the thoughtful design process that went through the creation of the LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105), including that of the Lion Dance (80104). According to LEGO Product designer Markus Rollbühler, they’ve intentionally designed the sets to be as authentic as possible. “We were incredibly thorough with our research when designing the sets. For the Chinese New Year Temple Fair, we looked closely at the types of things vendors sell in the market stalls and all of the various goods on offer.”
Together with the LEGO Lion Dance (80104), the LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) will also launch in China and the Asia Pacific region on December 26, 2019 and will be offered to the rest of world on January 10, 2019. Read on for LEGO’s official description for this set, and be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home during these dates.
LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105)
The Chinese New Year Temple Fair set captures a beloved event often seen in towns and cities throughout China around the lunar new year. The set includes stalls displaying a vast, colorful array of LEGO versions of authentic items you would find at a Temple Fair. Everything from barbecue dishes to candy, toys, vases and dough figurines are lovingly re-created ion LEGO form. The set also includes 14 minifigures. Eagle-eyed LEGO fans will notice that the family from last year’s Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner set make an appearance, continuing the story of their Spring Festival celebrations.
LEGO is further gearing up its roster of 2020 sets, and this next one will certainly be appreciated across Asia and the rest of the world. A new, Chinese New Year inspired set has now been officially revealed – the LEGO Lion Dance (80104).
The LEGO Lion Dance (80104) showcases five, colorfully decorated brick-built lion figures used in the traditional Lion Dance performance. It also includes 8 minifigures, and I guess plenty of minifig legs for the dancing lion figures, lol. This set is expected to be released in China and in the Asia Pacific region earlier just after Christmas on December 26, 2019 and to the rest of the world on January 10, 2020. I’ll keep you posted on the retail price and piece count of this set any time soon. For now, here’s how the LEGO Group describes the LEGO Lion Dance (80104) set.
The Lion Dance set vividly reproduces a well-loved scene of the Spring Festival and is sure to evoke fond memories of the traditional festival. The set features 5 beautifully decorated small lion figurines and a percussionists’ stage with an awesome drumming function. An accompanying temple gate is decorated with LEGO tiles featuring traditional patterns. The set also comes complete with 8 minifigures including lion dancers and a man in rat costume to mark the Year of the Rat. Additional accessory elements such as the red ‘best wishes’ scroll, red orb, cabbage, calligraphy brush and a rocket firework are included to inspire unlimited role-play.
