Guide to all the new LEGO sets releasing on 1 January 2022

We’re almost ready to usher in the New Year, and once the clock strikes midnight and we tick over to the 1st of January 2022, over 100 new LEGO sets will go on sale on!

With so many LEGO sets, from LEGO City, Friends, to Technic, to Creator Expert, Brickheadz and more – there’s something for everyone, and what better way to kickstart the New Year than with new LEGO.

Here’s a helpful guide to all the new January 2022 LEGO releases to help you navigate and plan your purchases! Most of these sets should go live on LEGO’s online site just after midnight, so if you’re staking it out for the 10297 Boutique Hotel modular, I’d get ready just before midnight in your local time zone.

Is there a Gift With Purchase offer for January 2022?

Nothing has officially been communicated yet BUT I would be very surprised if LEGO didn’t have a GWP ready for purchases in January 2022. 2021’s January GWP was the very popular Vintage Car, which sold out almost immediately as fans flocked to the new sets in 2021.

I’d say we should learn about the January 2022 GWP very, very soon, so keep an eye out on the blog for updates!


Also… there are plenty of rumours that the LEGO Ideas Sonic set may drop in early January. So keep an eye out as there are only 4 days left for LEGO to make any sort of announcement..

It’s almost tradition to kick off the year with the new LEGO Modular Building, and 2022’s modular is 10297 Boutique Hotel, which will be available to order at the stroke of midnight on 1 January 2022.

It’s such a uniquely fantastic design that celebrates 15 years of Modular Buildings, and has such an innovative and unique architecture, colours and design.

I need a bit more time to complete my review, and got sidetracked somewhat by the holidays, but I hope to publish it before launch!

See below for regional pricing and links:

And a surprise announcement – the 1st of January 2022 will also include the LEGO Ideas Sonic the Hedgehog set! See more photos and my first impressions in the announcement post

For LEGO Technic and Superbike fans, you’ll also be able to look forward to 42130 Technic BMW M 1000 RR which will be released on 1 January 2022, exclusively on ahead of a wider release in March 2022.

I’m not a massive Technic fan, but if you want to see more of the BMW M 1000 RR in detail, check out this awesome review from friend of the blog, RacingBrick.

LEGO Star Wars January 2022 Releases

Star Wars fans have a couple of Hoth-themed sets to look forward in January 2022, including the long-awaited Hoth AT-ST set, along with the return of Battle Packs – perfect accompaniments for your UCS AT-AT!

Aside from that, for fans of The Mandalorian, we have a new Razor Crest Microfighter, which is the most affordable way to get your hands on a Din Djarin minifigure.

And last but not least, we have the 150th LEGO Brickheadz – Ahsoka Tano!

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 January 2022 Releases

For January 2022, we have a very small wave of Creator sets, which include the highly anticipated LEGO Majestic Tiger – yes the one with the anatomically correct anus.

Tiger orifices aside… this is a fantastic Creator 3-in-1 set that’s among the best that LEGO have designed, and for a great price as well. A perfect addition for those looking to celebrate the Year of the Tiger!

There’s also a new LEGO Botanical set, 40524 Sunflowers! Read my review here!

Unfortunately, it seems that the Creator Postcards have been delayed or cancelled, so we’ll have to wait till we get official confirmation from LEGO on the fate of these buildable postcards.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes January 2022 Releases

It’s going to be extremely slim pickings for LEGO Marvel Fans as there will only be 2 new Marvels sets out on 1 January 2022, after the latest Marvel Mechs got cancelled/delayed due to structural issues.

But thankfully, there are four new 4+ Spidey and Amazing Friends sets to fill the void, and give you your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man fix!

LEGO Monkie Kid January 2022 Releases

Monkie Kid heads to the moon in the early 2022 wave of sets, which sees brand new mechs, and new characters such as Chang’e and Nezha introduced to the rapidly expanding theme!

The absolute highlight for me, however is 80036 The City of Lanterns which is going to be a Day One purchase for me.

For the rest of the world, we finally get sets from the upcoming Matt Reeves movie, The Batman! These were previously only available in the US ahead of the rest of the world.

  1. Deadbrownie says:

    How do releases work if it’s midnight local time? Is there a chance of selling out because of that?

  2. Richard Thorne says:

    Picked up the chicken walker it looks incredible

  3. How come only about half the sets that had a January 1 release date was released?

  4. Adam Brooker says:

    Do you know why some of the new sets that had release dates of January 1 2022 have not been released like the sunflower

  5. Anna says:

    Harry potter?

  6. JP says:

    I was hoping that 2022 would see the discontinuance of the black box design for ‘adult’ sets. It doesn’t work for everything.

  7. Tim says:

    Great concise list! How often do they do new releases?

    Note above the green box asking if we’re buying anything, it says June 1 2021.

  8. JayFan says:

    Hey Jay

    In your final closing remarks you have inadvertently left a previous date;
    “I think that’s all the new LEGO sets releasing on 1 June 2021! Hope this guide helps!”
    It should read 1 January 2022!

  9. Clone force 99 says:

    Hey jay, I love your work. Are you going to do a review of the fox lounge?

  10. Joel H says:

    Thank Jay! Are you going to do a review for the UCS AT-AT soon?

  11. Fiona says:

    Thanks Jay for all this great information – and for that matter, all the posts you make – they have been one of the emails I love receiving this year – no doubt you have helped many people maintain some sanity over the last 2 years 🙂

    I MUST have the Boutique Hotel – I think this is superb. It would look even better with several sets combined to create one mega hotel. If anyone creates one – please share!

    The other sets I’ll be considering are the Majestic tiger (wow); Brickheadz dogs; Friends canal houseboat, and the sunflower (loved the pic of your daughter with one).
