January 2021 Friends Sets Announced

2020 is rapidly coming to a close. With 2021 on the horizon, a lot of new LEGO® set announcements are hitting the airwaves. We have already seen offerings from City, Marvel Superheroes, Harry Potter, Art, Star Wars, and Super Mario. Additionally, Minifigures Series 21, the Chinese New Year sets, and the new Police Station modular were announced. Today, I am taking a look at the January 2021 Friends sets as well as some due in March. Interestingly, the Friends theme looks like it is getting its own version of the stumpy-kid Minifigure. I am not sure if that is a positive development. I might be mistaken, but this one does not even look like it has moving arms.

There you have the January 2021 Friends sets, plus a few for March. I often find Friends sets inspirational, or I look at them as great brick boxes. In this round, only the movie theatre has me mildly intrigued. As I was putting together this post, I reflected numerous times on the fact that Mini-dolls are just not for me. I think they look kind of creepy. Especially the male ones. Now, they added those unmoving children. Those are even creepier than the adults. Am I wrong? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
