The 1st of January is the biggest and most expensive day of the year for LEGO fans. With over 100 new sets are due to hit the shelves!

For those long term LEGO lovers, you know what January 1st means… Staying up till midnight to be the first to purchase all the new sets you want, before they sell out! Alternatively, getting up early after staying up till 1 am making your purchases, to also head to the LEGO Store in person to pick up the sets!

This year there are over 100 new sets hitting the shelf. With some new themes and categories, some continued themes and of course LEGO classics like CITY and Creator. Take a look through your potential shopping like below! We have added hyperlinks to the theme pages for you, just click the words or pictures to be taken there. They are affiliate links, so any clicks followed by a purchase, all goes towards keeping this site alive. Happy shopping my friends! <3
