LEGO Seasonal Year of the Rat (40355) Official Images

There are now official images of the upcoming LEGO Seasonal Year of the Rat (40355) set. It has 162 pieces and you will be able to get it for free with purchases of $80 or more starting on January 13.

As you can see from the images below, there’s actually a lot of articulation with the Rat with the moveable ear, hands, and tail. Along with the set, you also get a “red” envelope where you can put money in and give to others.

The promotion will run until January 26, while supplies last.

LEGO Taiwan Year of the Rat Promotions

The Year of the Rat is coming up in just a few weeks and LEGO Taiwan has put out a pretty interesting advertisement for the holiday. Mainly, they have posted an image showing all the animals on the zodiac. A majority of these minifigures are official minifigures from past LEGO Collectible Minifigures waves while others are mashups or recolors from existing minifigure parts. Some of the parts could be used for future minifigures as well.

Some other promotions LEGO has going on across the Pacific are the little brick-built items that will be given away during specific dates. They all look pretty cool but I do like the vase and the pellet drum.

As for us here in the US, we also have a LEGO Seasonal Year of the Rat promotion on LEGO [email protected] from January 13-26 with purchases of $80 or more. In addition, there are two Chinese Festival sets that will be releasing on January 10 with the Lion Dance (80104) and Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105).

LEGO Year of the Rat (40355) Promotion Coming January 13-26

If you didn’t see the January 2020 LEGO Store Calendar, we will be getting another Chinese New Year set with the LEGO Seasonal Year of the Rat (40355). You will be able to get it from January 13-26 with purchases of $80 or more which is a little bit lower than previous years’ threshold of $88.

Technically, this will be the seventh zodiac animal that has been released by LEGO but only the fourth that has been widely available on [email protected] The Snake, Sheep, and Monkey were previously Asia exclusives so hopefully LEGO will remake them for the mass market.
