The 2020 winter wave of LEGO sets has been announced officially and I take a look at six great LEGO sets that I’ll definitely want for my collection. Making top lists are always popular and I’ll be curious to know what your priorities are for the coming year – let me know in the comments! The list is ordered and we begin with the fifth and end with the top!
6. 60249 LEGO City Street Sweeper
First up (or sixth up!?) is the small street sweeper. Street sweepers has been a mainstay of the LEGO line-up for years and I still have my classic one from the early 90s. These are the main reason for this set coming it at fifth place. However, any AFOL city builder knows that LEGO cities are the home of dust and those street-plates or tiles need sweeping. This, and the fact that there’s some originality to the way the brushes has been made puts this set on my must-buy list!
5. 60267 LEGO City Safari Off-roader
On fifth place we find a set that sends me right back to the 1990s. The 6672 LEGO Safari Off-Road Vehicle from 1990 was something that caught my eye back then. Having missed that one by about 25-30 years, I’m happy to get a modern day equivalent. The lion and the tree-camouflage are interesting pieces and I can’t wait to build the Jeep/Landrover too! I do miss the monkey from the 6672 though.
4. 31104 Creator 3-in-1 Monster Burger Truck
Putting a Buger Monster Truck on fourth place almost seems sacrilege. It’s one of the most creative vehicles to come out of the Creator 3-in-1 theme in my opinion and I’d love to see more like it. The mix of “that’s unlikely” and “I’ve gotta laugh” that hits you when seeing this definitely puts it in the top three for me!
3. 60253 LEGO City Ice Cream Truck
I loved the 60150 Pizza Van from 2017 and anything like it is destined to go in my collection. This one will look great standing beside the Pizza Van in a food market or at your LEGO stadium. Unfortunately, my LEGO city – Bakersville, doesn’t have room for a stadium, but the fact that there’s a sunglass-wearing ice-cream on top of a van has got to count for something! This is definitely a third place for me and something I’m sure to buy!
2. 31105 Creator 3-in-1 Townhouse Toy Store
I am a city builder at heart. Ever since I played Sim City for the first time, I knew it! This set speaks to that part of me. I can add another great building to my city (when I get more room – naturally). The color scheme is great – azyre, dark blue and brown work very well together. The small tower and the balcony gives the whole set an old-Europe ambience that is just great! Wonderful set and a clear second place for me!
1. 10270 Creator Expert Bookshop
Yeah, I pretty much had to do it. Even though this list was actually made before the reveal of the 2020 modular (a big mistake on my part), I had to put it on number one! It’s just great! Beautiful colors, beautiful design and I just loooooove the core subject! A bookshop is right up my alley!
What are your thoughts on these sets and what is your must-buy sets in January?
