It’s fairly rare that LEGO designers reveal their secrets but there’s one that has been revealed for an upcoming LEGO City set. Designer George Gilliatt has disclosed that the new elephants in the upcoming summer 2021 LEGO City Wildlife Rescue Operation (60302) were actually teased back in March in the LEGO Creator Safari Wildlife Tree House (31116). As you can see, there’s a printed picture tile of the prototype elephants in the treehouse. I guess we’ll just have to scrutinize every little details in sets for hints on future items.
The Wildlife Rescue Operation will be available starting on August 1 and it is one of two sets in the wave with the new adult elephant molds, the other set being the Wildlife Rescue Camp (60307).
DID YOU NOTICE: The brand new LEGO elephants from City set 60302 were actually teased back in March – prototype versions of the animals feature on the decorated tile in my Creator set 31116. Graphic designer @Fanboy30 is so sneaky! 🐘 #LEGO #AFOL pic.twitter.com/dgpDYgQNVY
