The LEGO Year of the Rat (40355) gift with promotion has been available in Singapore since the beginning of January but the official images are only surfacing now for some reason.
For the North American markets, the LEGO Year of the Rat (40355) will be available on the 13th of January when you spend a minimum of USD$80 on any LEGO products at the LEGO Brand Stores or Shop@Home.
There is a lot more articulation in this model as compared to the previous Chinese Zodiac sets.
The head swivels and the ears and hands are posable thanks to the inclusion of the ball joints along with the tail that can swish back and forth.
This will be the sixth LEGO Chinese Zodiac which means we have six more to go to complete the series.
