LEGO Starts Listing Advent Calendars for 2022: Friends, City, Harry Potter, Star Wars

August is as good a month as any to start hyping Holiday seasonal products. LEGO certainly thinks so, with the first previews of their seasonal sets starting this week. The holiday sets for 2022 are rather adorable, especially the polar bears. But they’re just the tip of the iceberg, and there’s a particular LEGO product line in the spotlight. Advent calendars?

LEGO GWP Polybags Now Available: Speed Champions Aston Martin AMR Pro and City Go-Kart

A week into June 2022, LEGO has a new set of GWPs beginning their promo period now. Both items are polybags, and they ought to catch the fancy of automobile aficionados looking for quick builds. One is for the Speed Champions line, which already has new releases this year. The other is a minifigure-scale vehicle for the LEGO City line. According to Brickset, both gift-with-purchase polybags have the same purchase price threshold. One promo period ends sooner than the other though, so here’s the lowdown on these promotional automotive polybags.

First is the LEGO Speed Champions Aston Martin AMR Pro (30434). From this Tuesday, June 7, one can get it with a minimum LEGO purchase of $40.

It’s the same price deal for the LEGO City Go-Kart Racer (30589). About the only difference is the end of its GWP period. The City polybag wraps up on the 14th, while its Speed Champions counterpart won’t be until June 19. Of course, both also depend on while their respective stocks last. The Aston Martin polybag’s being touted by LEGO as a nice extra for a Father’s Day LEGO purchase. The City Go-Kart’s more for an everyday gift. These GWPs are available on both LEGO.com and LEGO Stores.

LEGO City Farm 2022 Sets Teased by a French Retailer

We’re closing out April 2022 with several reveals of new and upcoming LEGO sets later this year. They’ve ranged from mere names and numbers to having actual images. Their sources vary from online retailers to LEGO itself, even when there are no LEGO.com product listings yet. Take for instance the LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Viking Ship (31132) or LEGO City Freight Train (60336). They got sort of spoiled on LEGO’s Building Instructions portal and mobile app. Not up for trains in LEGO City? Then how about going rural with these LEGO City Farm 2022 sets?

Brickset gives us info on three new farm-themed LEGO City sets. Images of them popped up on JoueClub, another online retailer this time from France. All sets are geared for young LEGO builders. One even has a vehicle with “turning action” features. Here are some photos, plus whatever product details JoueClub has:

Chicken Henhouse (60344)

Age 5+ | 101 pieces | 1 minifigure | €9.99

LEGO City 2022 Farm

Farmers Market Van (60345)

Age 5+ | 310 pieces | 3 minifigures | €29.99

Barn and Farm Animals (60346)

Age 5+ | 230 pieces | 4 minifigures | €49.99

Again, we might be seeing these LEGO City Farm 2022 sets being launched this coming June. Stay tuned as we keep watch over at LEGO.com for their official reveal.

NOTE: Links have been updated to include affiliate links from LEGO.com since these sets are now expected to be released 1st of June.

New Pics, Info for Upcoming LEGO City Freight Train (60336)

Even if a new LEGO set you know is coming doesn’t have an official LEGO.com product listing yet, don’t fret. Perhaps some retailer might reveal it in advance. But maybe LEGO.com already has info on that upcoming item beyond just the product listing. There have been times when the Building Instructions page gets info on LEGO sets early too, with images even. This has happened this week with an upcoming LEGO City train set. It even included nice images of the product that has been shared before LEGO’s official announcement.

This juicy bit of info comes to us courtesy of German LEGO new source Promobricks. To wit, they got image of the upcoming LEGO City Freight Train (60336). This is one of three locomotive-related LEGO City sets primed to launch in June. The pictures even come with set data and European pricing too. Here’s a closer look at the set, plus its pertinent product info:

Freight Train (60336)

1,153 pieces | 6 minifigures | Powered Up function | €179.99 | Coming June 1

Freight Train is part of a new batch of loco LEGO City sets coming out this year. The other two are a new Train Station (60335) and Passenger Express (60337). While we got images for Freight Train (60336) first, it’ll be Passenger Express that’ll be reliably available on wide retail. At least that’s what Promobricks reports. Apparently Freight Train and Train Station may only be guaranteed available via LEGO.com Shop. We’re going to need clarification on this and hope LEGO gives us an official reveal/product listing soon.

More 2022 Sets from German Catalog: LEGO City

We saw more of what to expect from LEGO Harry Potter for next year. What other delightful LEGO sets can we expect according to the German-language LEGO Early-2022 Catalog? Plenty of our usual LEGO news sources have pored over scans of that catalog. Here we have a contribution from Brickset, and it’s for the LEGO City line. These expected sets for next year don’t dwell much on cityscapes however. Instead they continue a sub-series for space exploration we’ve seen in other revealed City sets. In a way they confirm some City Space rumors we covered last month, but not all.

These LEGO City sets feel like foreshadowing for NASA’s Artemis program towards a renewed manned lunar mission. We know LEGO and NASA are pretty tight regarding cross-promotion. The former developed a LEGO Education STEAM exploration series about it, “Build to Launch.” Our new reveals from the catalog don’t confirm the alleged inclusion of “Build to Launch” minifig characters. Still, we can look forward to these items later on in 2022.

Moon Rover (60348)

275 pieces | 3 minifigures | $33.81

Lunar Space Station (60349)

500 pieces | 5 minifigures | $$67.63

As always, prices in $ are direct conversions from the Euro pricing of these LEGO sets from the catalog.

More 2022 LEGO Polybag Images Surface

Early this month, we covered the reveal of the first LEGO polybags noted to be coming next year. Already we at The Brick Show felt that this batch of 2022 polys would only be the tip of the iceberg. Indeed they were, even if that was barely a surprise. Small and simple as they are, multiple unique LEGO polybags can be churned out in a year. Promobricks.de gives us word of these new reveals, courtesy of brickdex.io, a new price comparison platform. We’ve got multiple polybags under major LEGO themes unlike last time. There’s still no word however on which polybags will sell in-store and which are promo items only.

City
  • Police Robot Unit (30587)

  • Go-Kart Racer (30589)

Creator
  • 3-in-1 Tropical Parrot (30581)

  • Birthday Bear (30582)

  • Monster Truck (30594)

  • The Batman – Batmobile (30455)

DOTS

2022 LEGO Polybag Images Revealed

As you may have noticed, LEGO is now announcing sets coming this 2022, left and right. The reveals range across all popular themes and licensed IPs, as well as size. From sprawling city skylines to towering sci-fantasy rockets to adorable BrickHeadz, the January 1 launch window’s pretty packed. That goes also for the extremely small end of the LEGO set spectrum. Beyond a new LEGO Star Wars Microfighter we’ll also be seeing a selection of polybags. Granted, this particular LEGO reveal is sparsely detailed in comparison. We have no idea if the polybags are purchasable as is or GWPs instead, and when they’ll even appear.

While the following next-year LEGO polybags haven’t even got a LEGO.com listing, we at least know how they look now. Particularly noteworthy is the Technic polybag. Early in November the UK-published “LEGO Giant Series” Technic Mag featured a polybag in the cover. Their product numbers are even close enough by a few tens. Apparently they’d be the first Technic polybags to come out since the last ones in 2000. Sounds like it’s certainly worth collecting, along with the rest, as covered by The Brick Fan:

  • LEGO Friends Market Stall (30416)

  • LEGO Technic Volvo Wheel Loader (30433)

  • LEGO Star Wars AT-ST (30495)

  • LEGO Monkie Kid Monkie Kid’s Underwater Journey (30562)

  • LEGO City Kids’ Playground (30588)

That’s all we have for now, but we’ll bet more LEGO polybags will follow throughout 2022.
