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
Riding solo, Singapore is this year's new Architecture set. We did get one early here at BrickBanter.com, so if you want to check out our review, it's here. But if you want to buy it, the links below!
With the new Batman film due in 2022, LEGO gives us 4 new sets to enjoy! A brand new Batcave, 2 versions of the new Batmobile, plus a nice affordable bike chase!
Can you believe Brickheadz are 150+ deep! At least they are small and easy to display. They have continued their move into the animal word, along with a holiday and Star Wars release.
The theme with the most new releases for 2022 goes to CITY! Who doesn't love CITY?! This year we see literally everything a beginner would need to get a LEGO City started. Police, fire, hospital,school... All bases are covered! The best part, city is unlikely to see out first, so you can space out these over the course of the year!
Chinese Lunar New Year
It's year of the Tiger, and LEGO celebrates once again with these cute sets! You can find our review on the Brickheadz here, and the other two sets, you'll find our review closer to the end of the month.
Collector Minifigures - Series 22
LEGO has reached #22 in the Collectable Minifigure Series! A staple of these sets being the character costumes, and this years one is HOT! LEGO continue to extend their diversity in characters with a wheelchair athlete and male ice skater. We also have a purple space outfit for the first time which we know many Classic Space fans are excited about!!!
Creator & Creator Expert
Ok, so... We have a couple of new things here... And I'm pretty sure they will be out Jan 1st! But LEGO recently removed the Postcards for New York and Beijing sets from the website. We'll have to wait and see! But, I know it's a lot of peoples favourite release each year, the Modular! Check out our review here, it's pretty flippin' nice!
If you dig Disney, you'll dig this! Because it's Disney!
New colours, new prints, new dots!
Full of fun colours, vehicles and friends. The Friends theme never disappoint, returning with eight cool new sets!
Rumoured by Promobricks to be arriving in January, Sonic LEGO Ideas is apparently on the way as well! No word just yet on an exact release date, I assume if it were Jan 1st, we would know by now. So stay tuned!
Ok, brace yourself! We don't know what is happening with these sets! After appearing on the LEGO Shop website, they were removed. In a rollercoaster of events, minisuperherostoday revealed LEGO's announcement of these sets possibly being cancelled. Stay tuned I guess!
Minecraft is back for another year! I'll be honest, I don't know anyone who collects these, but it's outside of my demographic! They are back, and for a reason I'm sure!
We had a lot of fun reviewing this years Monkie Kid theme! Start by checking out our review of the City Of Lanterns!!! Such a rad set!!! Work your away around to our Chang'e Moon Cake Factory review. OH. My. God!
Following on from their 10th anniversary, Ninjago returns for another year, bigger and better than ever!!! With nine glorious new sets to add to your collection. And if you are lucky, or rich enough, there is a 10th set, LEGO 4002021. But good luck trying to find it!
What?! Only six sets?! Chill out... Don't you know how LEGO works? There will be plenty more throughout the year. If you are a Star Wars only collector, hold onto your coins, your chance will come.
Stuntz. What else can I say.
1up! More Super Mario! Life is an expansion set in this theme, you can continue playing and extending your Mario world! But let's be honest, wait till they are on sale on Amazon.
Technic is hitting 2022 a little soft IMO. But sit tight, I reckon the REAL good stuff is being saved for later in the year ;)
Ladies and gentlemen, happy shopping on 1st of January. Spend wisely, and remember restocks do happen throughout the year, so don't stress if you miss out. None of these sets are rare!
