The 2020 Chinese New Year sets include a Lion Dance and Traditional Temple Fair. The first offering features five small lion figurines and a percussionists’ stage that includes a drumming function, as well as a Temple Gate that sports specially-designed LEGO tiles featuring traditional patterns.
LEGO’s Lion Dance set also comes paired with eight mini-figures including lion dancers and a man in a rat costume, while the red “Best Wishes” scroll, red orb, cabbage, calligraphy brush, and a rocket firework complete the set. For its take on a Traditional Temple Fair, LEGO recreates an authentic market with stalls that sell barbecue dishes, candy, toys, vases and dough figurines, and includes 14 minifigures.
In true LEGO traditional, the sets are about fun, creation and education more than anything else. As a result, LEGO has ensured that the kits are functional, with its lions from the Lion Dance set featuring manually-mechanical mouths that can open and close, and a body that can be positioned to pose however you desire.
Take a look at the LEGO Lunar New Year 2020 offerings in the gallery above, and pick up both of the sets at LEGO stores and LEGO’s online store now while stocks last.
