January 2019 – new LEGO sets & promotions

Happy New Year to all of our readers and subscribers! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season, and now ready to dive into a brand new year! For LEGO fans, 2019 is already starting out with lots of excitement due to the release of a large wave of brand new sets. As far as promotions and freebies this month, unfortunately LEGO no longer lists them in the LEGO Store Calendar ahead of time. Instead, we will have to wait and see when they appear, and pay close attention to the front page of the Online LEGO Shop. So let’s see what’s new! 🙂

2019 LEGO ARCHITECTURE SETS AVAILABLE: There are a couple of new LEGO Architecture sets; the #21044 LEGO Architecture Paris, and the #21043 LEGO Architecture San Francisco. You can find them both at the LEGO Architecture section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO BRICKHEADS SETS AVAILABLE: There are three new pretty interesting LEGO BrickHeadz characters; the #40348 LEGO BrickHeadz Birthday Clown, the #40349 LEGO BrickHeadz Valentine’s Puppy, and the #40354 LEGO BrickHeadz Dragon Dance Guy. You can find them at the LEGO BrickHeadz section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO CITY SETS AVAILABLE: A large selection of new LEGO City sets are available, including the much talked about #60216 LEGO City Downtown Fire Brigade with new light and sound bricks, and a water pump. Several of the smaller LEGO City Police and LEGO City Fire sets also include these new pieces, and there is also a new ejecting parachute and a new water cannon! You can find all of them at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO CLASSIC SETS AVAILABLE: LEGO is continuing to release sets with basic bricks in a rainbow of colors in the LEGO Classic line. Amongst the four new sets, my favorite is the #11003 LEGO Classic Bricks and Eyes. It includes some really fun suggestions for brick-built characters, and lots of different printed eye pieces. You can find all the new sets at the LEGO Classic section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO CREATOR 3-IN-1 SETS: We get three new LEGO Creator 3-in-1 sets, including the #31092 LEGO Creator Helicopter Adventure, the #31093 LEGO Creator Riverside Houseboat, and the #31094 LEGO Creator Race Plane. I think all three of them look great, and each of the sets come with instructions for two other alternate models. You can find them at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.

#10264 LEGO CREATOR CORNER GARAGE: The latest in the LEGO Modular Buildings collection, the #10264 LEGO Creator Corner Garage is now available! You can learn more about this set at our previous discussion (see: 2019 LEGO Modular Corner Garage Coming!). It goes really well with the #10260 LEGO Creator Downtown Diner from last year. Find both at the LEGO Creator Expert section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO DISNEY SETS AVAILABLE: There are six new LEGO Disney sets, featuring favorite Disney characters like Aladdin, Jasmine, Cinderella, Ariel, and Rapunzel. The color selections are really nice this year with beautiful pastel hues. You can find all the new sets at the LEGO Disney section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO FRIENDS SETS AVAILABLE: There is a large selection of new LEGO Friends sets as well. The #41369 LEGO Friends Mia’s House looks especially nice in my opinion. There is also a new collection of LEGO Friends Heart Boxes, each of them with a lovely (and colorful!) brick-built treasure/jewelry box, a mini-doll, and a selection of accessories. There is also one larger set with two Heart Boxes and two mini-dolls (see image below). I think they look great, and they may or may not have been inspired by the recently re-released Polly Pocket lockers. You can find them all at the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.

#76127 LEGO CAPTAIN MARVEL AND THE SKULL ATTACK: Team up with Captain Marvel and Nick Fury to save Goose the cat from Talos! This action-packed construction toy features Nick Fury’s Quinjet with an opening dual minifigure cockpit, adjustable wings, 2 flick-missile shooters that each shoot 4 missiles at once, and an opening rear compartment with space for Goose. Includes 3 new-for-January-2019 minifigures: Captain Marvel, Nick Fury and Talos, plus a Goose the cat LEGO figure. Quinjet measures over 4” (11cm) high, 11” (30cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide. Find it at the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO MINECRAFT SETS AVAILABLE: Five new LEGO Minecraft sets are now available, including three sets with large, brick-built versions of some of the main characters; Steve with Parrot, Alex with Chicken, and Skeleton with Magma Cube. You can find them at the LEGO Minecraft section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO NINJAGO LEGACY SETS AVAILABLE: The LEGO Ninjago collection includes a large selection of new sets. They are re-imagined and updated versions of some of the earliest LEGO Ninjago sets, including the Spinjitzu spinners, Nya’s Samurai Mech, Lloyd’s Golden Dragon, Kai’s Blade Cycle, Zane’s Snowmobile, Jay’s Storm Fighter, Cole’s Earth Driller, the massive Ultra Dragon, and the Spinjitzu Monastery. You can find them all at the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO SPIDER-MAN SETS AVAILABLE: We already talked about these sets as they were released a bit early (see: 2019 LEGO Spider-Man Sets Review), but I will mention them again here for the sake of completeness. There are five new sets in total, with two of them under the LEGO Juniors (now called LEGO 4+) label for younger kids. The #76114 LEGO Spider-Man’s Spider Crawler is an especially unique set. You can find them at the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO STAR WARS SETS AVAILABLE: A large selection of new LEGO Star Wars sets are available, including several LEGO Star Wars Microfighters, Battle Packs, and midi-scale vehicles. You can find them all at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO OVERWATCH SETS AVAILABLE: Those who are patient could pre-order the LEGO Overwatch sets ahead of time, and now they are available with a wider release. The collection includes some great sets like the #75974 LEGO Overwatch Bastion, the #75970 LEGO Overwatch Tracer vs. Widowmaker, and the #75973 LEGO Overwatch D.Va & Reinhardt. The minifigs are especially nice in this series! Check out all six sets at the LEGO Overwatch section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO SPEED CHAMPIONS SETS AVAILABLE: There are five new LEGO Speed Champions sets. LEGO Speed Champions have come far from the original sets due the introduction of a number of small curved and angled pieces. The designs now look more sophisticated with less reliance on stickers to shape the cars. The #75894 LEGO Speed Champions MINI Cooper S Rally and 2018 MINI John Cooper Works Buggy (see below) is a particularly nice set, and check out those sweet looking printed tires in the #75891 LEGO Speed Champions Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Race Car! You can find all the new sets at the LEGO Speed Champions section of the Online LEGO Shop.

2019 LEGO TECHNIC SETS AVAILABLE: Several new LEGO Technic sets are also available, including the #42093 LEGO Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, the #42096 LEGO Technic Porsche 911 RSR, and the #42095 LEGO Technic Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer. You can find all the new sets at the LEGO Technic section of the Online LEGO Shop.

THE LEGO MOVIE 2 SETS AVAILABLE: All of the new sets for The LEGO Movie 2 are now available! As expected, the highly popular #70841 LEGO Movie 2 Benny’s Space Squad is already on backorder (you can still order it but there will be some delay in delivery), and there are many other fantastic sets in the collection. You can find them all at The LEGO Movie 2 section of the Online LEGO Shop.

FREE LEGO MOVIE TICKETS: There is a really nice promotion for LEGO VIP members who purchase The LEGO Movie 2 sets! You will get two cinema tickets to The LEGO Movie 2 if you spend $60 or more on The LEGO Movie 2 sets. After your purchase, you have 21 days to go to VIPExclusiveOffer.com, upload your physical or digital receipt, and receive your movie tickets! Awesome!

LEGO DOUBLE VIP POINTS: It has become the new standard that LEGO is offering only a couple of sets at a time with Double VIP Points. For this month, we get a new LEGO Friends and a new LEGO Technic set with Double VIP Points. You can find them at the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO SETS ON CLEARANCE SALE: While LEGO is promoting the new 2019 sets, they are also clearing out some old stock. Close to a hundred really nice sets are on sale, including LEGO BrickHeadz, LEGO City, LEGO Classic, LEGO Creator, LEGO Elves, LEGO Friends, LEGO Minecraft, LEGO Nexo Knights, LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Speed Champions, LEGO Super Heroes, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Technic, plus a whole bunch of accessories like keychains, watches, stationery, and more. You can find them all under the SALE tab at the Online LEGO Shop.

And that wraps up the first wave of new sets for 2019. As you can see, there is plenty to choose from for every taste and budget. As far as promotional items and freebies, I will keep an eye on them and let you know what they are and when they are available in future updates.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’m getting some of the Overwatch and TLM2 sets. I had trouble checking out. I kept getting an error message. But eventually my order went through with a different browser.

    • TomTom January 1, 2019, 5:08 PM

      I had problems checking out too. But when I switched to paypal payment instead of credit card, it worked.

      • admin January 1, 2019, 8:26 PM

        I heard other people mentioning checkout issues as well. Best is to try a different browser or a different payment method. It’s probably just a glitch due to the site being stressed by so many rabid LEGO fans. 😀

  • BigShawn January 1, 2019, 2:16 PM

    Happy New Year to everyone! I’m just now looking through all the new sets. Can’t decide! Send help!!

    • admin January 1, 2019, 8:21 PM

      Happy New Year to you as well. Take your time. There is no rush. All of these new sets will be around for a long while. Making a selection is part of the fun! 🙂

  • DavidH January 1, 2019, 4:49 PM

    Happy New Year! Too tired now for shopping, but I will look at the new sets later.

    • DavidH January 1, 2019, 4:50 PM

      When are the big Technic sets coming?

      • admin January 1, 2019, 8:25 PM

        David, larger Technic sets are usually released in the summer. 🙂

  • Legostuff14 January 1, 2019, 6:29 PM

    Happy New year! Mine is so-so happy year, my Lego store is closing and moving to much further location( too far for me to go). It’s been eleven and a half years I’ve been going to this Lego store. I’ll probably will go check it out tomorrow and see what is left on the shelves they are probably bear. 😭 on a happy note,😊 if by chance the ninjago dieselnaut is still available, I’m thinking about getting it I’m making a kinda of a mad max wasteland with ninjago and Lego movie 2 combined. I even created a he-man like character that rides the saber tooth tiger( from the Arctic). So, I have some ideas to work on. One, is have ultra agents team up with ninjago city to help defend it. I guess because the main bad guy has that Dimension portal to pull things from other worlds ( like Alien Conquest and Galaxy Squad) and they all have a huge battle in Ninjago City. It’s crazy but, it just might just work. This also means a delay on the Monastery of Spinjitzu set. I’ll go by” if it’s meant to be then so be it.”

    • admin January 1, 2019, 8:28 PM

      I love the Dieselnaut! As you said, it has a strong Mad Max vibe! Alien Conquest + Galaxy Squad + Ninjago = AWESOME! 😀

  • Legostuff14 January 1, 2019, 8:38 PM

    My only problem is the dieselnaut has a lot of the same characters as other Ninjago sets this past year. So, I’m up in the air about that.

    • admin January 1, 2019, 9:09 PM

      That’s true, but it also makes them look more cohesive. Like, they clearly belong to the same theme.

      • Håkan January 2, 2019, 6:23 AM

        Aren’t there only about five-six main characters in total? And when a new character is introduced in the series, I’d guess Lego would include a few price range options for getting the character, so collectors would receive a lot of doublets…

        It’s a similar situation for all the Batman, Spider-Man and Star Wars sets…

        • admin January 2, 2019, 10:40 PM

          Yes, but one nice thing about Ninjago, is that their ninja suits are fairly traditional. If you take them out of the Ninjago universe, you can easily transform the characters into an army of ninja in matching uniforms. They are masked anyway, so nobody knows who is behind the mask. 😉

  • Legostuff14 January 1, 2019, 9:15 PM

    Oh, the Sky Pirates would also go great with the Mad Max theme. As well as Ronin and his vehicles. I have so many possibilities it’s a bit overwhelming.

    • admin January 1, 2019, 10:59 PM

      Just build a little at a time. You know, like eating an elephant one bite at a time. Of course, that’s figurative, as I’m a vegetarian and love elephants. The point is that when you have a task that looks overwhelmingly large, focus on one section at a time that looks doable. Little by little, you finish one task at a time, and before you know it, you have the whole thing done. 😉

      • Rob January 2, 2019, 10:34 AM

        You’ve reminded me of a joke recipe about Elephant Stew; quite fitting for large church parties! Prep time took about a month due to having to cut a whole elephant into bite-sized pieces, although as with most parties there might not be enough meat for a few unexpected guests, so it suggested adding rabbit if necessary, but advised being careful as some people aren’t fond of finding hare in their stew!

        • admin January 2, 2019, 10:44 PM

          Is… is that a dad joke? 🙄

          • Håkan January 3, 2019, 9:02 AM

            It’s hare today, but gone tomorrow…

  • Legostuff14 January 1, 2019, 10:31 PM

    A curious question, when does the Lego two movie mystery minifig bags come out?

  • Legostuff14 January 2, 2019, 12:14 AM

    I’m thinking more like a birthday cake , build it in layers. It will probably tastes better a lot more fun to build on both accounts. Off topic, I’m building the diner and discovered how much work is put in on the details. Lots of interesting builds.

    • admin January 2, 2019, 10:38 PM

      Layered cake? Diner? Now you are making me hungry! 😀

  • FrenchToast January 2, 2019, 10:01 AM

    When an item shows as out of stock, how long will it take for them to ship it?

    • admin January 2, 2019, 10:43 PM

      If a set is on backorder, it is usually stated right on the item page when it is expected to ship. In my experience, this date errs on the side of caution, and items usually ship earlier than stated. If you order several sets, and some of them are available now, others later, they will ship them in separate packages. 🙂

  • Rob January 2, 2019, 10:30 AM

    Hope everyone has a happy and good event fulled 2019! Oh, and all the boxes of ABS plastic pieces you could want. 😀

    • admin January 2, 2019, 10:43 PM

      Happy New Year to you too! May your world be filled with ABS plastic! 😀

  • Sith015 January 2, 2019, 1:19 PM

    I like the small Star Wars sets, like the one with the dewback and the x-wing. Is lego bringing back midi scale? That would be really cool!!! Any rumors on what the UCS set is going to be this year? I’m just curious. 😀

    • admin January 2, 2019, 10:46 PM

      No rumors on large Star Wars sets, but they usually come out in May and the end of the year. And yes, it seems like LEGO is bringing back midi, something Star Wars fans were asking for a while. Now they just have to bring back the midi Millennium Falcon. 🙂

  • Legostuff14 January 2, 2019, 7:13 PM

    No dieselnaut! I went to the Lego store (for the last time,before it officially closes ) it was so bare I almost cried. 😢 it was picked over like Christmas dinner . Moving on to plan b. I love the new fire station and how it can connect from Land and Sea. I’m not a big fan of the air police. Oh, and just too be clear I’m shooting for the Monastery of Spinjitzu. Top of the list.

    • Håkan January 2, 2019, 8:34 PM

      Yeah. There was a local privately run Lego store in Stockholm for a while. The owner had to shut down, and the last time I got by it was quite barren…

      • admin January 2, 2019, 10:48 PM

        It’s so sad when small private stores go out of business like that. I remember a couple of them from my childhood as well. They were a magical land for kids! I was always hunting for LEGO and Playmobil. 😀

    • admin January 2, 2019, 10:47 PM

      The Monastery is a beautiful set! I’m also curious about the City fire sets, especially because of those new light and sounds bricks and the water cannons. 😀

  • Legostuff14 January 3, 2019, 8:24 PM

    Do you still buy playmobil sets? I’ve had a couple of sets in the early 80s . I believe my brother had the pirate ship and I got the fort. Sadly , with all my moving , I lost a lot ( if not all ) of the sets.

    • Håkan January 3, 2019, 9:25 PM

      How hard is it to find Playmobil in the States? Here in Sweden, they’re just about everywhere. almost as widely available as Lego, but I’ve heard it might be a bit harder in the States.

      (Although the biggest toy retailer in Scandinavia, Top-Toy, that runs the franchised Toys’R’Us stores and the Danish BR Toys stores recently went bankrupt, so there might be fewer specialized toy stores in the future. I’ll wait and see if they can liquidate enough assets to stay afloat.)


      • admin January 3, 2019, 11:51 PM

        As Legostuff14 said, finding Playmobil in the states is tough. The only reliable store that regularly carried them was Toys’R’Us, but they are no more. However, we do have access to the US version of the Playmobil online shop, which is great. They definitely have the best prices, but their selection is limited. For retired sets and figures, and exclusive releases, eBay is the best option. But even on eBay, it’s usually sellers from Germany and Spain who have the best selection. Their prices are high, so is shipping.

        I try to stick to buying from the Playmobil online shop when I can, and only shop on eBay when I really want something and can’t find it anywhere else. And I look at all those exclusive Europe-only releases with envy…

        Playmobil also has a very nice online community. Maybe not as big as LEGO, but still very dedicated. They even have an online database similar to Briklink to see all the sets ever released and to manage your collection: https://www.klickypedia.com/

    • admin January 3, 2019, 11:43 PM

      I don’t get sets much any more, as they take up so much space, but I do collect some of the figures. I was always fond of Playmobil knights. In fact, I was thinking about writing on an article on them. I kind of went back to Playmobil recently since LEGO hasn’t been releasing any traditional Castle sets, and I was missing having new knights. 🙂

  • Legostuff14 January 3, 2019, 10:46 PM

    Actually, it’s funny I started collecting Playmobil in Austria when I lived there in the early eighties. I also got hooked on the Smurfs. In the states it’s a little hard to find playmobil sets now that toys r us is gone. Sometimes barnes & nobles has some playmobil sets.
