Following the two LEGO Chinese Traditional Festival sets released for 2019, 80101 Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner and 80102 Dragon Dance, new sets have been announced in the series for 2020. Along with 80105 Chinese New Year Temple Fair, 80104 Lion Dance has been unveiled by the LEGO Group.
Here is the official product description:
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.
“Both sets include amazing minifigures and details to encourage role play. The Lion Dance set comes with many interesting play features. For example, you can fully pose the lions and you can also open and close their mouths to help recreate the spectacular dances we all know and love,” says LEGO Product Designer Markus Rollbühler.
The set will be released in China and Asia Pacific markets from December 26, 2019 and everywhere else from January 10, 2020. The UK price will be £64.99 and the US price will be $79.99.
