LEGO Technic is getting bigger this year, with the Liebherr R 9800 Excavator (42100) clocking in at a massive 4,108 pieces, making it officially the biggest Technic set ever. It’s now available for pre-order from LEGO.com for US $449.99 | CAN $549.99 | UK £399.99. Although the site doesn’t list its release date, we expect it to be Oct. 1 based on the previously released catalog. Using a customized version of new Control+ app that we just featured in our review of the brand new LEGO Technic 4×4 X-treme Off-Roader (42099), the giant mining excavator has not one but two smart hubs and seven motors.
Check out all the details of this huge new set below. Like Technic? Be sure to check out the just-announced 2,500-piece LEGO Technic Range Rover Defender (42110).

Catawiki is an auction website that focuses on rare and interesting items, and they’ve been featuring unique LEGO lots for several years. Unlike eBay, Catawiki’s lots are curated, with LEGO experts on staff who work with sellers to ensure the lots are interesting and have detailed information.
One of the most unique LEGO auctions I’ve seen in a while is happening this week, with a custom LEGO version of the Bell Tower of Florence built from over a hundred thousand bricks! Built by Luca Petraglia over the course of more than three years, the tower stands 3 meters (nearly 10 feet) tall.
Luca has displayed his tower at LEGO conventions such as the LEGO Fan Weekend in Skærbæk, Denmark. You can get a better sense of the tower’s massive scale with the builder standing next to it.
Catawiki also has a number of other interesting LEGO-related auctions this week, including some 1950’s vintage LEGO.
The first of the month typically means new sets available from LEGO, and this November is no exception. Last month brought Star Wars and holiday sets, and this month brings the LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book and new Xtra Accessory Bags.
Take a look at the new sets in detail below.
LEGO Ideas: This set is a stand-out of the Ideas line, showcasing the creativity of the fan designers heightened by official LEGO designers. As we mentioned in our review, this set is a good one with decent price per part value, and we are excited to see all the custom pop-up scenes that are just waiting to be made.
LEGO Xtra: These delightful accessory bags have been available off and on in physical LEGO Stores for a few months, but this is the first time they have been listed for purchase online. The bags include a variety of items from food and plants to bikes and lamps, any of which would be a great way to expand your LEGO City.
Today LEGO has unveiled a special pair of Christmas holiday BrickHeadz, 40274 Mr. and Mrs. Claus. The cheery duo are dressed in red and surrounded by holiday decorations, including presents and a Christmas Tree for good ol’ Santa, and fresh-baked cookies and a wreath for Mrs. Claus. The set is a two-pack, and it will be available Oct. 1 for $19.99 USD. The set has 341 pieces.
Both sets will be available generally starting October 1, though since technically anyone can sign up for the LEGO VIP program, anyone could get them today as long as they are still in stock.
75222 Betrayal at Cloud City includes 2,812 pieces with 18 minifigs and retails for $349.99 in the US ($399.99 in Canada | £299.99 in the UK). Check out our review of the first set in the Master Builder Series.
10263 Winter Village Fire Station includes 1,166 pieces with 6 minifigs and baby and retails for $99.99 in the US ($129.99 in Canada | £84.99 in the UK). Check out more pictures of this year’s Winter Village set.
For years LEGO Harry Potter fans have been asking for a complete model of Hogwarts Castle. LEGO has made more than 20 sets depicting various parts of the wizarding school, some with just a few rooms or a bit of wall, and some with large parts of the structure. Some were excellent, and some were not. Now LEGO has finally created the whole castle in a single set, using a massive 6,020 pieces to sculpt 71043 Hogwarts Castle in microscale, including 27 microfigures and 4 minifigures. The set is available beginning today for LEGO VIP members (signing up is free), and will be available to everyone beginning Sept. 1. It retails for $399.99 USD.
Wondering if you should spend your hard-earned cash on a set this big? Check out our hands-on review of 71043 Hogwarts Castle, or see more of the official photos in our announcement article. You can help support The Brothers Brick by purchasing this set and others through the links below.
Note that you must be logged in to the LEGO Shop Online as a VIP member to purchase the set before Sept. 1. Additionally, although LEGO generally rolls out its releases beginning at midnight for each region, it appears this one may be slightly delayed in some regions.
While it remains to be seen if LEGO has produced enough of this set to fulfill demand, if the sales of the even-larger Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon were any indication, this Hogwarts will be hard to find for quite some time. The Millennium Falcon was only available for a few hours at a time before going on backorder, until nearly 6 months after release.

Along with new sets, LEGO has two simultaneous gifts with purchase, including the brand new “Plants from Plants” box of elements sourced from sugar cane (free with purchases above $35), and the Unikitty Castle Room (free with Unikitty! purchases above $25).
