Celebrate Chinese New Year in style! Proud to have been able to work on these fantastic #LEGO sets with such awesome colleagues (I designed the Spring Lantern Festival with brilliant graphics provided by Paul and concept design from Xiaodong). Happy building! @LEGO_Group #AFOL pic.twitter.com/fCZTlvYnZ2
