Two new LEGO Chinese Traditional Festival sets have been announced today, 80105 Chinese New Year Temple Fair and 80104 Lion Dance. In this new video, LEGO Product Designer Markus Rollbühler introduces the sets and highlights a few of their features.
“For the lion dance set we looked at the traditional tail of the neon line and how it interacts with things. Fore example the lettuce and the red envelope,” he explains. “We have a new minifigure that has a rat costume that can interact with the lions with the lettuce and the red envelope.”
“To complete the atmosphere of the traditional festival we placed numerous decorations across all the stalls, wishing you prosperity and peace,” the designer says of 80105 Chinese New Year Temple Fair, before wishing viewers the best for the year of the rat.
The sets will be released in China and Asia Pacific markets from December 26, 2019 and everywhere else from January 10, 2020. The UK price for 80104 Lion Dance will be £64.99 and the US price will be $79.99. The UK price for 80105 Chinese New Year Temple Fair will be £89.99 and the US price will be $119.99.
