Summer 2020 Friends Pics

The LEGO® Group recently released official images of the summer 2020 Friends line. Images of these sets have circulated the internet for some time. I even reported on the box art a while back. However, these images are higher quality. Additionally, we now know Canadian pricing information. With the last round of photos, I also conducted some simple Instagram surveys to gauge AFOL interest. I included the results below.

Summer 2020 Friends concluding thoughts…

Largely, I find this wave of sets unappealing. It seems that most AFOLs in the True North Bricks community agree based on the poll results. However, it is important to remember that this theme is not targeted at adults. I do think the new animals introduced in this wave are interesting. Additionally, I like the airplane. The realistic touches of the overheard storage bins and the bathroom are fun. The bright colors also make it look like a tropical vacation airliner that might compete with the City airplane also coming out this summer. However, many of these sets (airplane included) are not a very good value at full price. What are your thoughts on the summer 2020 Friends sets? Comment below or reach out on social media 🙂

Until next time,
