2024 Lunar New Year Sets Revealed

The LEGO® Group has revealed the 2024 Lunar New Year sets. Last year, I did not buy either of the offerings. While elements of the Lunar New Year Parade intrigued me, they were not enough to warrant a purchase of the expensive set. Conversely, this year I am planning to pick up at least one of the sets. Similar to previous years, the LEGO® Group is offering two Lunar New Year kits for the coming year. Since 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, and I love animal/creature builds, you will probably quickly guess which one I’m after.

Auspicious Dragon

  • SET #: 80112
  • THEME: Lunar New Year
  • COST: $119.99 CAD
  • BRICK COUNT: 1171
  • RELEASE DATE: January 1, 2024
  • COST/BRICK: $0.10 (very good value)

I love dragons, I love creature builds, and I love LEGO®. The Auspicious Dragon combines all three. I’ve been waiting for a phenomenal animal build ever since the Majestic Tiger (of which I bought three). This dragon has definitely made my wish list. However, it seems like it will be a shelf warmer. The official LEGO® documentation only advertises a moving head and jaw while stressing this is a display piece. As such, it seems the Auspicious Dragon is more statue than play set with articulation like the Majestic Tiger was. We’ll have to wait for the first reviews for confirmation of that.

Family Reunion Celebration

    • SET #: 80113
    • THEME: Lunar New Year
    • COST: $169.99 CAD
    • BRICK COUNT: 1823
    • RELEASE DATE: January 1, 2024
    • COST/BRICK: $0.09 (excellent value)
    • BRICKS/FIG: 140 (very good minifig count)

I am no longer really collecting city-style sets. However, a couple of years ago, I would have jumped at the chance to have this set. It’s a great looking building, the value is good, and it comes with a wonderful stock of Minifigures. I have nowhere to put this, but I admit I am still tempted just to experience the build and then use it as a parts pack for MOCs. The brick selection is interesting in this one. I really like all those ingot-style bricks used to tile the roof sections as well as the ornate windows. What do you think of the 2024 Lunar News Year sets? Let me know in the comments or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
