Unless you’ve been carefully tracking every single LEGO announcement over the past few weeks and honing your shopping list to suit, it’s easy to lose sight of all the sets arriving on shelves today. March 1 has become just as big as – if not bigger than – January 1 in the LEGO shopping calendar, and that means there are plenty of products vying for your LEGO budget today.
Dive into the full list below. If you’re looking to get in on any of these sets as early as possible, please consider supporting Brick Fanatics in the process by purchasing using our affiliate links. Thank you!
LEGO for Adults
Two new LEGO for Adults (formerly Creator Expert) sets are available now, each catering for completely different tastes – and at completely different price points. The latest supersized vehicle comes in at under three digits across GBP, USD and Euros, while the LEGO Group’s third football stadium is also its most expensive to date.
Which is better: a king, or a knight? What if it’s a dark knight? That’s the question posed by this year’s first pair of LEGO Art sets, which deliver the theme’s first two-dimensional portraits of Elvis Presley and Batman respectively. The latter set can also be rebuilt into Joker or Harley Quinn, while doubling (or tripling) up on either set gives you even more options.
Every month is a new-set-month when you’re LEGO BrickHeadz, with February’s Stranger Things and Toy Story characters followed by Chip & Dale and, erm, the Spice Girls for March. It’s a theme that continues to surprise, if not in format, then at least in subject and character choice.
LEGO CITY is heading back into the great unknown for 2022, with a range of new space-themed sets now available to buy. The classic hallmarks of a rover, space station, rocket and launch centre are joined by an even more exciting domed moon base, so you can finally build your own episode of Futurama, with blackjack, and… well, you know how it goes.
Meet the new baseplates: same as the old baseplates. Only this time, they’ve apparently got fancy new paper packaging. It’s hard to tell if that’s true looking at official images, but we’ll hopefully be able to confirm as soon as we’ve had chance to get our hands on them in person. Beyond those, there are three more boxes of bricks to prompt creative play.
Alongside six new pocket money-priced 3-in-1 sets, LEGO Creator is bringing us the surprise addition of a mini version of 10298 Vespa 125, available to buy independently at the same time as its larger counterpart (rather than as a gift-with-purchase). A perfect basket filler to reach the threshold for 40530 Jane Goodall Tribute when that lands on March 3, then.
Just two new LEGO Disney sets are available from today, drawing on familiar source material in The Little Mermaid and Frozen. Those are fan-favourite movies, though, and these sets also mark the first-ever King Triton mini-doll, so there’s still plenty to get stuck into here.
Do you like LEGO? Can you spell that out for us? How about using a DOTS message board? It’s a fun new concept for the tile-centric theme, anchored around two different sizes of message boards. Just don’t ask what ‘THE FUTURE IS DURS’ means.
The cast of LEGO Friends graduates from veterinary school this month, but before they get stuck into the difficult task of running around with animals in a playground, they’re heading to the beach for a holiday. Sometimes we wish we lived in Heartlake City.
LEGO Harry Potter
While it’s busy building on last year’s Hogwarts Moments and revamped modular Hogwarts system, the LEGO Group is also bringing a brand new Harry Potter concept to shelves this month in a Polly Pocket-style trunk, complete with a huge assortment of minifigure elements to build yourself as a Hogwarts pupil. Hands up who wants to be in Hufflepuff…
It’s a slim month for superheroes on the whole, but the one Marvel set available from today is pretty mighty all its own. You can test out your worthiness by picking up (or at least trying to pick up) an enormous rendition of Mjölnir, here renamed Thor’s Hammer, presumably to relieve LEGO Store employees from having to pronounce the Nordic name.
Looking to expand your 71767 Ninja Dojo Temple? The LEGO Group sure hopes so, because it’s just launched an add-on set in the form of 71764 Ninja Training Center. Three new spinners round out the new NINJAGO Core subtheme for the first half of 2022.
LEGO Speed Champions
There’s barely a bad word to be said about this year’s slate of LEGO Speed Champions sets, which elevate the eight-stud-wide vehicles to new heights – and with brand new licence partners along for the ride, including Lotus and Aston Martin. Check out that Merc two-pack, too, which includes the first eight-wide Formula 1 car…
LEGO Star Wars
Three new characters join the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection today, along with two sets inspired by The Mandalorian. One of those is technically based on the second season’s post-credits scene, which would be a very deep cut if it hadn’t led to an entire spin-off series. The characters definitely make 75326 Boba Fett’s Throne Room a Mando set, though.
It’s a pretty exciting month for Technic, not least because the theme’s first-ever licensed Formula 1 car is racing on to shelves. It’s available alongside an eclectic mix of sets including a CONTROL+ vehicle, the first LEGO John Deere tractor and a generic all-terrain vehicle.
