Here’s the first official images of LEGO 40466 Chinese New Year Pandas

The LEGO Group has revealed official images of 40466 Chinese New Year Pandas, a brand new BrickHeadz set for 2021.

Brick Fanatics reported the first low-res look at the set earlier this week, but we can now bring you official pictures of the family of buildable pandas – along with all the set’s most pressing details.

The 249-piece model includes a mother panda and her two cubs, which are built in different positions. They’ve all got individual baseplates, and there’s even some appropriate décor with bamboo stalks, a lantern and a buildable mandarin orange tree – a symbol of good luck in China.

You’ll be able to pick up the BrickHeadz product through official LEGO channels – including LEGO Stores and – from January 1. It’s set to retail for £17.99 / $19.99 / €19.99.

It’s not the only Chinese New Year set coming in January, of course. 80106 Story of Nian, 80107 Spring Lantern Festival and a DUPLO set – Town Happy Childhood Moments – will also launch in the new year.

40466 Chinese New Year Pandas joins two LEGO BrickHeadz Pets sets, 40440 German Shepherd and 40441 Shorthair Cats, for the full 2021 range so far. The LEGO Group has also revealed the first official images of 40462 Valentine’s Bear, 40468 Yellow Taxi and 40469 Tuk Tuk, along with more images and details for the two new LEGO flowers sets arriving in January.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
