Additionally, all of the set information is now available. With the last round of photos, I also conducted some simple Instagram surveys to gauge interest. I include the results below.

Summer 2020 Hidden Side concluding thoughts…

These official pictures made this wave of sets more appealing. The box images I was able to share earlier did not do justice to the play features in these sets. For example, the ability of the Fire Truck to transform into a mech surprised me. Additionally, compared with other themes’ summer 2020 offerings, these sets are a good value. Finally, the Nehmaar Reem Minifigure is awesomely spooky with his empty, black eye sockets.

Overall, my initial impression of the summer 2020 Hidden Side sets has changed for the better. However, with all of the amazing sets coming out this summer, I still don’t think these will be high on my priority list. Have your opinions changed? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
