Thanks to German retailer JB Spielwaren, we now also have a near-complete look at the upcoming 2022 LEGO City sets, which span a great variety of City themes – from your classic Police and Fire Brigade, to some usable structures and buildings such as a Hospital, and School, and into outerspace with 60350 Lunar Research Base!
I’m really pumped for 60350 Lunar Research Base, which is inspired by NASA’s Artemis Base Camp Concept – Artemis is NASA’s mission to return to the Moon by 2025, and it’s great for LEGO to lean into space exploration.
Prices and exact release dates should be revealed on LEGO.com shortly, and I’ll update this list below once they’ve been confirmed, but expect most of these 2022 City sets to be available in January 2022.

The last two years has seen medical professionals and frontline health workers play such a prominent role in helping society through a once-in-a-generation pandemic, so I’m really pleased to see LEGO honouring these heroes with a substantial hospital set.
It’s pretty great to have more “usable” buildings instead of just Police Stations, and burning buildings, and I imagine parents will also get to use this set to educate kids on the amazing contributions and sacrifices made by frontline healthworkers, and hospital support staff through the Covid-19 pandemic.
And my other favourite pick is 60314 Ice Cream Truck Police Chase, with these Soft Serve Bandits. It’s nice to see LEGO City baddies branch out, and adopt more zany costumes and outfits, and this one looks like a ton of fun.
These new Ice Cream costumes are brilliant, and there’s also a green version in 60328 Beach Lifeguard Station.
Those are some of my faves from the 2022 LEGO City January releases!
