As it always has and likely always will, January 1 marks the launch of an absolute wealth of new LEGO sets, all after your hard-earned cash. And you’ll be happy to part with it, not only for something shiny and new, but also to cure those January blues in what’s likely to be another very strange year.
If you’re not sure exactly what to look out for at LEGO.com, though, we’ve done the hard work for you and come up with the definitive list of everything launching today. It’s a pretty long list, so if you’re looking for a particular theme, use your browser or device’s find function to head straight to it.
The only LEGO Batman set launching in 2021 (so far) is a minifigure-heavy accessory pack, with a brand new outfit for the Caped Crusader.
