A number of new LEGO sets have been revealed during the China International Import Expo that I thought would be interesting to discuss. According to Brickset, seven new LEGO Super Mario sets are coming in 2022 (four of which were shown at the expo), along with a large LEGO Monkie Kid set, and two new LEGO Chinese New Year sets. Details below.
The new LEGO Super Mario sets include the #71396 LEGO Super Mario Bowser Jr’s Clown Car, the #71398 LEGO Super Mario Dorrie’s Beachfront, the #71300 LEGO Super Mario Big Urchin Beach Ride, and the #71402 LEGO Super Mario Series 4 Character Pack. The other three sets coming next year that were revealed already are the #71397 LEGO Super Mario Luigi’s Mansion Lab and Poltergust, the #71399 LEGO Super Mario Luigi’s Mansion Entryway, and the #71401 LEGO Super Mario Luigi’s Mansion Haunt-and-Seek. This theme seems to be doing really well, so it’s great to see that LEGO is continuing to support it. You can find all the currently available sets at the LEGO Super Mario section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The #80035 LEGO Monkie Kid Galactic Explorer features the signature colors of Monkie Kid and his team. This could very well become a favorite non-licensed spaceship for a new generation of kids. For the current selection of LEGO Monkie Kid sets, visit the LEGO Monkie Kid section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The LEGO Chinese New Year sets have become very popular in the past few years. The sets are colorful, full of pleasing details, and many interesting new parts and printed elements. The two new sets for 2022 are the #80108 LEGO Chinese New Year Traditions and the #80109 LEGO Chinese New Year Lunar New Year Ice Festival. The first set is made up of six vignettes featuring Chinese New year traditions that can be stacked in different ways, and the second set is similar to the LEGO Winter Village series with minifigs enjoying outdoor winter activities around a frozen lake.
You can see both sets in more detail in the video below. They will be available in January of next year (a bit earlier in Asia). Also, please note that you can still get the #80106 LEGO Chinese New Year Story of Nian and the #80107 LEGO Chinese New Year Spring Lantern Festival from last year at the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.
I’m particularly excited about the new Chinese New Year sets. What about you? How do you like these upcoming sets? Are you planning to get any of them? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below!
