Here’s something cool for the readers who follow the lunar calendar. 2017 will be the Year of the Rooster according to a Weixin post, a LEGO Year of the Rooster set will be given away to those who were born in those particular years (1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017) via a voucher at the Shanghai LEGO Store from January 13-22. For those in other parts of the world who want one, it’s most likely you won’t find it available unless you purchase it off the secondary market.
LEGO continues to please the Asian market with these sets based on the years of the Chinese zodiac. In 2013, the Year of the Snake (10250) was released. In 2015, fans had the Year of the Sheep (40148) while this year had the Year of the Monkey (40207). Now I just have to wait until 2018 for my Year of the Dog set, if there is one.
