Huw and the crew over at BrickSet.com have been busy combing through the 2021 sets semi-leaked in the LEGO Certification documentation. This documentation is the LEGO’s certification needed to distribute it’s toys in various jurisdictions around the world. Pretty dry stuff overall, but invaluable for some images (albeit blurry) of yet to be released sets. If you’re curious, here’s an example document for the Tuk Tuk.
It’s possible LEGO will issue takedown notices to sites using these as they may be embargoed, but since the source is LEGO itself, who knows.
The Pets segment of BrickHeadz is new. It’ll be interesting to see what other animal pairs they do. Combined with the Creator German Shephard (30578), that makes 2 of the breed this year.
Notable is the ongoing tradition of the “Year of the” series where LEGO honors the Chinese New Year with a build for the animal of the year. This year is Year of The Ox but the ox looks a little confused, in my opinion.
For me the standout is the Panda pair. But I have a serious bias toward pandas.

The Ox has a great face. That’s my favourite of these sets. I’ll bet there’ll be some mums getting Lego flowers for mothers day this year. Those are good sets.
