News & Rumors on Upcoming LEGO Sets

If you’re active on LEGO forums and social media, you have probably seen some exciting news and rumors circulating about upcoming LEGO sets. Some of these sets should be officially announced soon, while others are still well in the future, so we need to take the information with a grain of salt. Discussing new sets is always exciting, so at least we can do that much while we wait for official info.

We already talked about the upcoming #75978 LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley set yesterday, but just to recap, this is a massive, 5,544-piece recreations of some of the well-known shops from Diagon Alley, including Ollivanders Wand Shop, Flourish & Blotts, Scribbulus Writing Implements, Quality Quidditch Supplies, Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor, The Daily Prophet, and Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. In addition, the set also includes fourteen minifigs. This set is scheduled for September, so the press-release should be available at any day now.

Another big set that is rumored to come sometime next year is the #71741 LEGO Ninjago City Gardens with 5,685 parts and over twenty minifigs, and should tie in nicely with the previously released #70620 LEGO Ninjago City with 4,867 pieces from 2017, and the #70657 LEGO Ninjago City Docks with 3,553 pieces from 2018. Rumor has it that it has some pagoda-like buildings and towers, as well as a bridge, and gardens. It is likely based on – or at least inspired by – the screenshot above from the LEGO Ninjago Movie.

There are also rumors of a humongous #10276 LEGO Creator Expert Colosseum with over 9,000 pieces. That sound pretty incredible, as it would be the largest LEGO set ever, overtaking even the #75192 LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon with #7,541 pieces. I’m not sure if I believe this rumor, as the Colosseum doesn’t seem to be a particularly interesting subject for the average LEGO fan or even collector. We shall see…

Those of us who are waiting for the next LEGO Winter Village set, rumor has it that it’s named #10275 LEGO Elf Clubhouse, and might even have a moulded reindeer. We should be hearing about this set soon, as the holiday season is just around the corner. If you’re missing some of the previously released LEGO Creator Winter Village sets, the #10263 LEGO Winter Village Fire Station from 2018, and the #10267 LEGO Winter Village Gingerbread House from 2019 are still available at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Also, remember that there are several LEGO Ideas projects that have been approved to become official LEGO sets, so they should be coming sometime within the next year or so. This includes the Seinfeld 30th Anniversary set, the Winnie the Pooh set, the Home Alone McCallister’s House, 123 Sesame Street, the Medieval Blacksmith, and the LEGO Typewriter, For currently available sets originally designed by LEGO fans, visit the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Another rumored set is the #10274 LEGO Creator Expert Ecto-1. You might remember that LEGO released the #21108 LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 in 2014 and the #75828 LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto 1 & 2 in 2016. Both of them were minifig-scale sets. The new set on the other hand, is rumored to be like the #10262 LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin and other large LEGO Creator Expert vehicles.

From the above list, I’m most excited about Ninjago City Gardens. Ninjago City, and Ninjago City Docks are two of my favorite sets, and Ninjago City Gardens seems to be at least as awesome, if not better. What about you? Which set are you looking forward to the most? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below!

    Thanks for the summary! I have seen bits and pieces of this info. I’m excited about the Ecto-1 and Ninjago City Gardens. That colosseum seems far fetched though.

  • TomTom August 21, 2020, 10:25 AM

    Wow, this makes me appreciate Diagon Alley even more. I wasn’t sure I recognized all the buildings and I thought the colors may have been off, but it’s pretty accurate based on the source material.

    I’m also doubtful about the Colisseum and I completely forgot about some of the ideas sets. Weren’t some of those approved a long time ago? Shouldn’t we have them by now?

    • Håkan August 21, 2020, 4:25 PM

      Perhaps the releases have been put on hold until the American distribution would work sufficiently again…

  • Sith015 August 21, 2020, 10:55 AM

    I’m so excited for Ninjago City Gardens! I have seen an outline somewhere and more details. It has a red pagoda, and a high tower that’s many different colors. And there is a waterway at the bottom, like the other two sets, and some trees sticking out of the buildings. I’m so hiped!

  • Tom August 21, 2020, 12:04 PM

    I’m very interested in seeing how diagon alley compares to the original. I was lucky enough to pick up a used copy for retail and it’s absolutely marvelous both as a build and display space.

    I regret not getting the Ninjago city sets although I do have the temple. Hopefully the garden will fit nicely in with that and if so it may go as a day one purchase.

    Starting to regret buying a large amount of monorail recently now as I’m feeling very very poor!

    • Håkan August 21, 2020, 4:27 PM

      I can’t see how you could ever regret having bought a Monorail… 😉

      (As for me, I need to go through all the clutter in my apartment…)

      • Tom August 22, 2020, 6:29 AM

        Oh Zero regrets on the monorail I’m just feeling very very poor. Although I got a good deal on the track its not cheap.

        Just need to get creative to blend it with my pirates and castle stuff 🙂

    So much great news! When are they going to stop? Or do they want all of us to go bankrupt? I’m most looking forward to ninjago city and diagon alley. Like others, I don’t get the colosseum. Who is their target market?

  • Pepper August 21, 2020, 2:56 PM

    I also forgot about the ideas sets coming! It’s crazy how many big sets are on the day. In the past, we used to get one or maybe two a year. Now it’s like every month! This makes me feels overwhelmed a bit. I don’t want to miss out and have to pay even more money for these sets after they are discontinued, but I have to remain financially responsible. And another thing is space. Where do I put so many huge sets? What do you guys do?

  • Giza August 21, 2020, 3:37 PM

    I just watched a couple of youtube videos on Diagon Alley and Ninjago City Gardens. Oh, dear.. I’m going to need to get another job!

    • Håkan August 21, 2020, 4:30 PM

      I’m going to need to get another apartment…

      And I probably won’t buy any of the sets, although I’m most interested in Ninjago City Gardens and most confused about the Colosseum…

      (I remember the Taj Mahal set. I think that didn’t sell particulary good when released…)

  • Master Builder August 21, 2020, 4:37 PM

    The Colisseum is probably going to be in the Landmark series, so not minifig scale and mostly small pieces. But still, the parts count indicates that it’s going to be big. I could see some people liking this. Just for all the parts, it might be worth it.

    I’m surprised Diagon Alley wasn’t officially announced yet. What are they waiting for? I want to see high-quality images and not those blurry leaks.

    • Håkan August 21, 2020, 5:17 PM

      No minifig scale is pretty much a given. A minifig scale Colosseum would be about one meter in height, and four meters in length…

  • Legostuff14 August 21, 2020, 5:28 PM

    Ok so, my wallet is going to be empty and I’ll put a second mortgage on the house. Find that goose that lays the golden eggs. I think I can make this work? Lol!

  • Tanner August 22, 2020, 8:58 AM

    Ninjago city gardens sounds incredible. And it seems it will be the biggest of the three. Can’t wait!

  • Armoredbrix😍 September 3, 2020, 2:14 PM

    Is the Ninjago City Gardens Confirmed? I would love to know.

    • Thita (admin) September 3, 2020, 2:48 PM

      This set is scheduled for next year, so we can’t expect an official confirmation from LEGO until at least the end of this year/beginning of next year. But what we know through the grapevines, it is indeed coming. However, as usual, nothing is confirmed until it’s officially confirmed. 🙂
