LEGO Technic January 1-Launching Sets Now Up

Yep, the LEGO January 1, 20222 set launch mass-reveal has no breaks. After all, what better time to unleash all-new LEGO sets than at the beginning of a New Year? By the way, you may recall last week that we found the first images of some 2022 polybags. We don’t know yet if they’ll be standalone purchases or GWPs. They do however serve as nice teasers for what the full sets would be like. Take for instance the LEGO Technic polybag Volvo Wheel Loader (30433). Some of its big brothers for 2022 evoke similar tell-tale Technic looks, and much more.

German LEGO news source Promobricks.de gives us the lowdown on the Technic sets due to usher in the coming year. We have three 2-in-1 builds, two of which join a couple more based on real cars in having pull-back action. And young builders get first-hand looks at the mechanics that make each vehicle go. That’s how LEGO Technic teaches/entertains, as they have done for years:
