Today LEGO has revealed a huge swath of new LEGO City sets for 2022, taking the wraps off 21 new sets. The sets span the usual City subjects with a heavy emphasis on emergency services with a new police station, fire station, and hospital, but also bring some less common subjects like a school, city park, and even a sardine factory. LEGO also revealed a pair of new City space sets that are a collaboration with NASA and are loosely based on NASA’s real-life Artemis project to return to the moon. While LEGO only revealed two of these NASA-inspired sets, we know there are more in the works since the back of the boxes point to there being additional sets in the space lineup. All of the new sets will be available Jan. 1, 2022.
Today LEGO has revealed that the latest set in the long-running Skyline series of Architecture sets will be 21057 Singapore.

Other locations in the skyline include the Lau Pa Sat market, One Raffles Place and OCBC skyscrapers, the posh Fullerton Hotel, the historic Boat Quay, and the distinctive and beautiful Gardens by the Bay nature park full of towering artificial trees covered in lush vegetation. The set will retail for US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99 and will be available starting Jan. 1.

And while the AT-AT will be available starting November 26, the other sets are slated for release January 1, 2022.

With a retail price of US $799.99 | CAN $949.99 | UK £749.99, the UCS AT-AT is taking its place along the 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon as the most expensive LEGO sets ever released.

LEGO Ideas 21327 Typewriter gives the crowdsourcing theme a new taste of nostalgia. With over 2,000 pieces, the set is a life-size replica of a 20th-century portable typewriter with moving keys.

Real paper can be fed into the platen roller as an authentic user experience. The 2,079-piece set will be available to buy for LEGO VIP members from June 16 and worldwide from July 1, priced at US $199.99 | CAN $269.99 | UK £179.99.
