Summer 2020 City Pics

We reported on the upcoming wave of City sets some time ago. However, the LEGO® Group has recently released official images showing more detail. Additionally, we now have set specifics. I also conducted an Instagram poll a few weeks ago to gauge how much you are all looking forward to these sets. Those results are also included here. So, read on for some official summer 2020 City pics and details!

Summer 2020 City concluding thoughts…

These summer 2020 City pics definitely provide a clearer image of the upcoming sets. Interestingly, these kits contain a number of named characters. Earlier reports told of Poppy Starr in 60262. Supposedly she is a personality from the “LEGO® City Adventures” TV series. Additionally, new characters revealed with these pictures include personalities from “LEGO® City TV”. Jessica Sharpe appears in 60264, and Harl Hobbs in 60266. It will be interesting to see if these characters get any continuity in other sets.

Overall, I am a little disappointed in the price point for the summer 2020 City sets. Every single one is way above my current average cost-per-brick. I suppose you are getting a lot of specialty pieces and new animals. However, the average cost-per-brick for this wave is $0.24. That is VERY expensive, even for the City theme. On average, based on all the City sets I have reviewed, the theme costs $0.17/brick. These sets really appeal to me though, and I think that Great White Shark will be popular. What are your thoughts? Comment below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,

  • I love these sets! I also really like some of the minifigures. Like that one on the airplane, she reminded me of that couple in Ninjago Prime Empire episode 9, at the dance competition. She has the high blue pigtails. Except, in the show, they were the pigtails from the Unikitty Fangirl, from the LEGO Ninjago movie blind bags.

    But, I also noticed that they reused one of the characters from the LEGO city Carnival people pack. The one in the purple jumpsuit. She has the Misako face from LEGO Ninjago, and white hair. Except in the other set it was braided. Just my observations! And thank you for the high quality images!
