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.
