The Lion Dance set is an absolutely inspired set, and just a complete joy to build. Firstly, it captures the spirit and look of a Lion Dance performance flawlessly. The set feels substantial, as you get a stage, and temple archway which makes for a great backdrop for the set. Secondly, I really loved the build. Putting the Lions together was a real joy, especially the first one when you experience how the model comes together.
Great set! Fun to build and very colourful. I love the mini figs included and all the little details.
80104 Lion Dance undoubtedly maintains the impressive standard that was established by previous Chinese New Year sets during 2019. These models are exceptionally detailed, accurately replicating each notable feature of lion dance celebrations with remarkable accuracy. The lions themselves look particularly appealing and I love the decorative gateway which forms a backdrop for the performance.
Despite the simplicity, there is an intense attention to detail here. With appreciation of the various meanings behind the design choices, special elements, significance of each activity in the festivities and legend behind the lions, the set becomes more appealing and grows on you. LEGO also designed this to be combined with the Chinese New Year Temple Fair, creating a bigger scene. This is also a great way to integrate the story into a larger world. And with the tiny stand-alone lions looking so great, I'd probably sneak a few of these on my desk for display at the office to bring me good luck and fortune for 2020. Maybe you should too?
