Five rumoured LEGO sets still to look forward to in the second half of 2024

Keeping track of every rumoured LEGO set is no mean feat, so here are five you might have forgotten about that we still have to look forward to in the second half of 2024…

All eyes are currently on the new-for-June-2024 releases, and rightfully so, because there’s a lot of good stuff to dig into there – from the latest Middle-earth monolith to an Architecture set that has redefined the LEGO Group’s internal policy. But while you’re mulling over what to pick up for the double points event that runs from June 12 to 16, it’s worth bearing in mind what’s said to be on the way in the months to come.

That’s not just from a budget perspective, but also from what in the current portfolio might work nicely with these rumoured sets. Maybe a set you weren’t planning on picking up suddenly moves to the top of your wishlist knowing that there’s a potential companion right around the corner, for example. For those of us without unlimited budget and space, a wider view of the assortment is very useful.

Note that because these are – by definition – rumours, they shouldn’t be treated as confirmed or guaranteed to be on the way. Each of these five models could materialise differently, or not at all, so take them with the customary pinch of salt for now. Initial information here comes from sources including Brick Clicker, itavixbrix, maxbautde and 1414falconfan.

21351 The Nightmare Before Christmas

Theme: LEGO Ideas Price: TBC Pieces: 2,193 Release date: September 1, 2024

There are still a handful of LEGO Ideas sets said to be on the way in the second half of this year, among which is the final version of Simon Scott’s The Nightmare Before Christmas build. To the surprise of nobody, the LEGO Group will apparently have this one ready and on shelves just in time for both Halloween and Christmas. That piece count suggests we’re looking at something pretty substantial, too. 

40755 Star Wars 25th Anniversary Celebration

Theme: LEGO Star Wars Price: TBC Pieces: 383 Release date: October 1, 2024

The LEGO Star Wars team has apparently earmarked an annual slot for a LEGO Store-exclusive set for the foreseeable future, following up last year’s 40683 Millennium Falcon Holiday Diorama with 40755 Star Wars 25th Anniversary Celebration. Very little is known about this one beyond the rumoured inclusion of several Rebel Troopers, Stormtroopers and the first-ever R2-KT astromech droid, but a single set designed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the theme sounds pretty compelling.

10339 Winter Village

Theme: LEGO Icons Price: TBC Pieces: 1,440 Release date: October 1, 2024

You could probably have taken for granted by now that a new LEGO Winter Village set would drop in October, but it’s worth a quick reminder just in case you don’t have the entire LEGO calendar stored away in the back of your mind. Not much is known about this year’s entry in the festive LEGO Icons subtheme, but based on that piece count, we’d expect it to match previous years’ sets at £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99. Make sure to put the budget aside if you’re collecting them all.

76328 Batman: The Classic TV Series Batmobile

Theme: LEGO Batman Price: $149.99 Pieces: 1,822 Release date: October 1, 2024

Thought the LEGO Group was done with its large-scale Batmobile collection? Think again: a supersized version of the ‘60s Batmobile, driven by Adam West and already recreated at minifigure scale twice over, is said to be coming in October. If you’ve been putting off buying 76240 Batmobile Tumbler, maybe now’s the time – it could look pretty good next to 76328 Batman: The Classic TV Series Batmobile, after all.

10335 The Endurance Ship

Theme: LEGO Icons Price: $259.99 Pieces: TBC Release date: November 29, 2024

This year’s Black Friday set is currently rumoured to be 10335 The Endurance Ship, a relatively large rendition of the vessel sailed by Sir Ernest Shackleton in his quest to reach the Antarctic in 1914. We say ‘relatively’ because a price tag of $259.99 feels pretty subdued next to recent Black Friday releases like 76269 Avengers Tower ($469.99), 10307 Eiffel Tower ($629.99) and 75313 AT-AT ($849.99). This one’s said to be accompanied by an exclusive gift-with-purchase.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
