Today LEGO has taken the wraps off the latest lineup of Marvel Super Heroes sets, revealing four new sets slated to launch in January 2023. The sets range from classics like the Avengers Quinjet with a scene from the original 2012 Avengers movie, to lesser-known scenes like Miles Morales fighting Morbius. New versions of the Hulkbuster and Ghost Rider’s motorcycle round out the offerings. Check out all the details below.
It should come as no surprise that LEGO’s Ninjago theme is as strong as ever heading into 2023 as it continues to be one of the company’s best-selling original IPs. The new January 2023 wave is being revealed today, bringing us nine new sets that will look pretty familiar to Ninjago aficionados, ranging from Lloyd’s Battle Mech to Cole’s Earth Dragon and Jay’s Lightning Jet. Most of the sets this season are EVO sets, meaning they can be evolved from a basic form to a guns-blazing, maxed-out version with the addition of easily removable modules. LEGO hasn’t clarified exactly when the sets will be available, but we expect that most, if not all of them, will launch as part of the January 1 rollout for 2023. Check out the full details on all the new sets below.
The LEGO Icons theme is going to new heights with its next set: 10307 Eiffel Tower. Clocking in at just over 10,000 pieces, this will be the tallest official LEGO set ever made, standing almost 5′ tall when fully assembled! The dark gray darling is detailed with intricate trusswork and topped with a French flag. Other structural details include elevators and an office on the top floor. Given its size, the build separates into four sections to aid transport and storage. Expect this architectural wonder to be available through LEGO stores and their website on November 25th, and will retail for US $629.99 | CAN $799.99 | UK £554.99.
With the second installment in this newly-revitalized franchise set to hit theaters at the end of the year, LEGO has debuted five new sets from Avatar: The Way of Water. These sets continue common tropes from those already available in the theme, whether it’s militaristic vehicles like the 75577 Mako Submarine, or the creatures of Pandora featured in 75579 Payakan the Tulkun & Crabsuit. Once again, we see the taller minifigures featured in these sets, adding a new dark aqua version of Pandora’s denizens to the mix. And true to the heavily-hydrated movie title, these LEGO sets prominently feature aquatic settings. With loads of coral constructions and undersea rock formations, there’s an especially diverse array of parts available in this lineup. All five of these sets will be available from LEGO stores and their website on January 1st, with 75576 Skimwing Adventure and 75578 Metkayina Reef Home available for pre-order right now through LEGO.com.
Today LEGO has revealed the first wave of Friends sets for 2023, bringing in a new cast of characters and an update to the branding with a new logo. A new LEGO Friends television series will also accompany the new sets.
LEGO’s annual Play Well study revealed that 3 out of 4 children felt there were not enough toys with characters that represent them, so LEGO is aiming to bring more diverse representation to Heartlake City that’s inclusive of not just various ethnicities and genders, but also disabilities and neurodivergence. LEGO says the 2023 sets and series will feature characters with limb difference, Downs Syndrome, anxiety, vitiligo, and even pets with disabilities, including a blind dog and a dog with a wheelchair.
Today LEGO has revealed the latest top-tier set from the Marvel Infinity Saga theme with 76210 Iron Man Hulkbuster. This massive model of Tony Stark’s indestructible mech stands 20.5 in. ( 52 cm) tall and contains 4,049 pieces. 76105 The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition came out in 2019 as a near-minifigure scale model, but this version is a significantly larger scale, though in the vein of many large display models from themes like Marvel and Star Wars, it includes a minifigure of Tony Stark that can be displayed along with the info placard. Tony can also be slotted into the gigantic mech. The Hulkbuster will retail for US $549.99 | CAN $699.99 | UK £474.99 when it’s available starting Nov. 4 for LEGO VIP members. General availability will follow on Nov. 9.
Today LEGO Ideas has revealed the next fan-inspired set will be 21337 Table Football. LEGO builder Donát Fehérvári submitted the project to Ideas as part of the special We Love Sports contest on the platform, where it won the grand prize last summer. The finished 2,339-piece LEGO Ideas set created by LEGO Designer Antica Bracanov positions minifigures as the players inside a functional—if miniaturized—table with ball returns and score counters. Full-size table football games (frequently known by the trademarked name Foosball) typically include eight rows of players, with 11 players for each team. The LEGO version downsizes that to just 5 players on each team on the field, but the full complement of 22 minifigures are included in the set. Rather than including predetermined minifigures for the teams, the set includes more than 40 minifigure heads and hairpieces across a range of skin tones, along with an extra bit of stadium seating for the inactive players that also functions as a storage box for the spare pieces. 21337 Table Football will be available starting Nov. 1, 2022, for US $249.99 | CAN $309.99 | UK £241.99.
Today LEGO has revealed 75331 The Razor Crest as the next Ultimately Collector Series (UCS) set in the Star Wars lineup. The infamous bounty hunter’s ship from The Mandalorian marks the first vehicle from one of Disney’s Star Wars TV series to get the UCS treatment. With 6,187 pieces and 28 inches (72 cm) in length, the new ship is in minifigure scale, dwarfing the previous 75292 Razor Crest set from 2020. The set will include Din Djarin, Grogu, Kuiil on a brick-built blurrg, and a Mythrol prisoner. It also features a full interior with multiple removable hull sections for access. It will retail for US $599.99 | CAN $759.99 | UK £519.99 and will be available for LEGO VIP members starting Oct. 3, with general availability following Oct. 7.
Today LEGO has taken the wraps off the latest Marvel Superheroes set for adults, revealing 76215 Black Panther. The massive bust of the superhero with arms crossed in a Wakanda salute measures over 18 inches tall (46cm) and contains 2,961 pieces. It’s slated to be available Oct. 1 for US $349.99 | CAN $449.99 | UK £299.99, just in time for the sequel Wakanda Forever, which premieres Nov. 11.
Pandora is calling in these four new LEGO sets based on the Avatar franchise. Debuting today at San Diego Comic-Con, we see an expansion of the toy line from the previously-announced 75574: Toruk Makto & Tree of Souls. Much like the set revealed during LEGO Con 2022, three of these models depict scenes from the first Avatar movie. But we also get 40554: Jake Sully & his Avatar in BrickHeadz form. Who knows what other new sets the upcoming movie, Avatar: The Way of Water, will bring! All the sets here will be released on October 1st, with 75572: Jake & Neytiri’s First Banshee Flight available for pre-order on July 21st through the LEGO website. And the BrickHeadz set will be a LEGO-exclusive, available only through their brick-and-mortar stores or LEGO.com.
Following the success of 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), LEGO has unveiled its next nostalgia-laden set in the Icons theme with a throwback to one of the original home gaming consoles: 10306 Atari 2600. The iconic console, released in November of 1982, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The 2,532-piece set includes the console itself and the distinctive joystick controller, along with a cartridge holder and three game cartridges with LEGO-ified artwork, Adventure, Asteroids, and Centipede. The set also includes microscale vignettes for each of the three games, as well as a pop-up minifigure-scale scene built into the console itself. The Atari 2600 will be available US $239.99 | CAN $299.99 | UK £209.99 when it’s available starting Aug. 1.
Folks, Pretzel Day has come early! This morning, LEGO debuted it’s latest Ideas set: 21336 The Office. Based on the US television show of the same name, the diorama features a whopping 15 minifigures! Almost all of the regular cast members are featured, as it looks like Andy may be off at anger management after punching a Technic hole in the wall. In these 1,164 pieces, we also get details from some of our favorite storylines: Meredith’s encounter with a bat, the teapot, “Lazy Scranton,” Kevin’s chili, and the iconic stapler in jello. Forget new chairs or a new copier, this is where the surplus should go! LEGO Ideas The Office is now available for pre-order in the US and Canada, with release on October 1st. It retails for US $119.99 | CAN $149.99 | UK £104.99
