Did you hear, apparently this Christmas thing is coming soon – only a matter of week I’ve been told!
Following on the cycle of new and exclusive parts released on a seasonal basis, LEGO have followed on from their Halloween 2020 Build-a-Minifigure parts with some suitably festive additions for Christmas 2020.
For Christmas 2020, we get a Santa, new female Christmas Elf and a festive girl.
Build A Minifigure has been a little weird here in Melbourne, Australia, and most BAM stations have been shut in our local LEGO stores, but these stores have been kind enough to offer prepackaged selections featuring the new seasonal characters and parts.
I managed to source some of the new minifigures from the Melbourne Legoland Discovery Centre which sells then in-store and online.
Otherwise, you’ll have to check your local LEGO store to see if these parts are already in the Build a Minifigure station.
Here’s a look at the blister pack included. Santa is the same old Santa that’s ubiquitous in a myriad of Christmas sets, so we won’t be covering him.
The most exciting addition is this Pink Christmas Elf, a brand new colour variant for Santa’s enslaved toymaking workforce.
This isn’t the first girl Santa Elf, but it’s definitely the most girly version, thanks to her new Pink headpiece, and torso.
The new Pink Christmas Elf comes with all the trimmings, a dual-sided face, back printing as well as a White sack, which a new (and so far exclusive) variant of Santa’s present sack.
This brings the Christmas Elf variants up to 3, as we have the generic green ones which are present in this year’s Elf Clubhouse set and 2014’s Santa’s Workshop set, as well as the Red Elf, which was available at Christmas in 2019.
I believe some of the Red Elf hats/minifigures should still be available, as you can still order the 2019 Christmas Build a Minifigure pack from Legoland Melbourne.
I do like that we’re getting so many different varieties, and for those into girly characters, the femme-Elf is going to be a favourite.
The next minifigure of note is this little girl, who comes with a new and exclusive blue sweater, which has some lovely festive prints on it.
I really like that the arm printing is consistent. Her short teal (or dark turqoise) legs are also new I believe – teal is a very rare colour, and I can’t recall ever seeing teal legs.
Here’s a look at her back printing, so you can better appreciate the amazing printing.
The present bow tile is also a new addition to Build a Minifigure for 2020, and I like the festive green and red colours used.
The new Pink Elf is definitely my pick of the new Christmas 2020 Build a Minifigure selection, and for those of you with this year’s Elf Clubhouse, and are setting up your Winter/Christmas villages, the new Pink Elf is a great addition to bolster your Elf ranks.
Here’s how my Elf Clubhouse set up looks like in front of our Christmas tree!
If you’re lucky enough to be close to a LEGO Store with a Build a Minifigure station, it might be worth it to pay a visit and see if they have any of these.
With the pandemic and tighter hygiene requirements, I don’t expect Build a Minifigure stations to be operational or open, so hopefully LEGO stores will be pre-packaging these for sale. In any case, be safe and wear a mask when you go!
For those of you in Australia, you can order the new Halloween 2020 minifigure set from the Legoland Discovery Centre Online Shop as they’ll ship Australia-wide!
Thanks for reading this quick review and look at the new Build a Minifigure parts for Christmas 2020!
