January 2020 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions

Happy New Year! Now that we are in 2020, there is a lot to talk about. First of all, LEGO just released a huge number of sets, including some really great ones, and there are also a couple of promotions we can take advantage of. So, let’s dive right in!

FREE LEGO KEYCHAIN: January 1-12, you can get a free LEGO keychain with a blue or purple 2×4 brick with purchases of $35 ore more (or while supplies last). It’s not a particularly exciting freebie, but LEGO knows that with all the exciting new sets they don’t have to give us an incentive to shop. This offer is valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

FREE LEGO YEAR OF THE RAT: January 13-26 you can get a free exclusive #40355 LEGO Year of the Rat set with purchases of $80 or more (or while supplies last).

FREE LEGO STAR WARS SET: For the entire month of January, you can get a free exclusive #30624 LEGO Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi set with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $40 or more (or while supplies last).

2020 LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES SETS AVAILABLE: For Marvel fans, there are nine new sets, mostly junior-ized mechs and vehicles for younger kids. The mechs for Ironman, Spider-Man, Thanos, and Venom might be worth checking out for mech-builders. They are available at the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.

There are also some other interesting miscellaneous items that you may like.

And that should cover all the new sets for 2020. As you can see, there are tons of great sets to choose from. If you plan to make a purchase online, I suggest that you also check the discounted sets as well, because LEGO is still clearing out older sets from their inventory. They are available at the Sales & Offers section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? Are you planning to get any of the early 2020 sets? Which one(s)? Feel free to share and discuss your favorites in the comment section below!

    I’m building my wanted list right now. Did anyone receive the January catalog yet?

    • admin January 1, 2020, 2:41 PM

      I haven’t received my Catalog yet, but I hope it arrives soon. With the holiday mail, things can get delayed.

  • Tito January 1, 2020, 12:17 PM

    Is anyone awake yet? Happy New Year! Well, I din’t win the lottery last year, so no legos for me just yet. I’m trying to be more responsible with my money. But I will still have a lego budget. 😀

    • admin January 1, 2020, 2:50 PM

      Sounds like a good plan! Having a LEGO budget allows you to plan wisely and enjoy the hobby without guilt… mostly. 😉

  • Legostuff14 January 1, 2020, 12:38 PM

    So, here’s my thought after getting a lot of Lego sets for Christmas, when does it become a ” greedy Factor”. Or is just to late for us . Lol! I’m interested in the new city sets particular the tuning shop and the gas station. I’ll try and stay away from the second wave of Star Wars for a while ( even after I just saw the movie yesterday). The hidden sides sets are always on my interesting and unique radar. I guess it comes down too where you are at the building stage right now and where you want to be later on. Right now I’m build the assembly and transport Space Station. As well as other sets from the space theme. So, I guess the smart thing to is build what I have and save money . I think then I’ll work my way down from the tuning shop to the gas station and see what happens next. From the most expensive to most inexpensive. Let’s hope I follow through with my plan.🤔

    • admin January 1, 2020, 2:53 PM

      The Tuning Shop is such a great looking set! I especially like the little trailer. How do you like the space sets? I have been considering getting the two largest ones, but so far it didn’t happen. But just yesterday I was building with friends, and we put together one of the smaller sets and really liked it. 🙂

  • supermario January 1, 2020, 1:14 PM

    Hey, guys, happy new year! Anyone got any of the new sets yet? I’m still sleepy, and it’s cold outside, but I was thinking of going over to WM or Target to see what they got in stock.

    • admin January 1, 2020, 2:55 PM

      There are so many new sets it’s hard to choose! But yeah, if you have a store near you that carries the new sets, it’s worth checking them out. Happy New Year to you as well! 😀

  • Peter January 1, 2020, 1:30 PM

    What about the Chinese new year sets? Aren’t they supposed to be released too? Or are they coming later?

    • admin January 1, 2020, 2:56 PM

      They are getting released on the 10th. We will talk about them at that time. 🙂

      • Håkan January 1, 2020, 10:38 PM

        The actual Chinese New Year is on the 25th, apparently, since they follow the Lunar calendar. (So it’s still ahead of schedule…)

  • Nofakebricks January 1, 2020, 2:18 PM

    Hey, everyone, happy new year! My new year’s resolution is to organize my Lego. I’m fairly organized, but I also have some stuff that has been sitting in boxes half built. I want to clear that up because it discourages me from building. How do you guys organize your Lego?

    • admin January 1, 2020, 3:00 PM

      I run into this as well. Work on several projects at the same time, don’t clean up, and stuff gradually accumulates into a nondescript mess. One thing I found helpful is making cleaning up fun. Put on a movie, or listen to music or a podcast, and spend an hour sorting out the mess. I agree that once things are sorted, building feels so much more peaceful. I use the LEGO storage bricks for organization. 🙂

  • brickmaster January 1, 2020, 4:08 PM

    Happy New Year! I haven’t looked through all the new sets yet. It’s difficult to search for them at the online shop as they are merged together with the 2019 sets. So thanks for the list. Is the wishlist now reliable? I remember it had issues for a long time.

  • Legostuff14 January 1, 2020, 4:46 PM

    Oh, I had so much fun building the larger of the space sets ( the rocket and assembly transport set). The transport vehicle for the rocket was an interesting build. A lot interesting techniques. The rocket itself was a fun build and it’s huge. I may be back tracking my Lego sets purchasing plan. I have a lot of skiers and snowboarders which tells me I should probably get the ski patrol set. I’m trying to work towards what I need to expand in my city. The new sets will be out for a while. Plus some was nice enough to give me the resistance Millennium Falcon and so I got that the build to. But not for a while. Does anyone have the ski patrol set and if so, what’s their thoughts on it?

    • jabber-baby-wocky January 1, 2020, 9:05 PM

      We have that set. It’s a mix of vehicles and buildings, but I don’t think it’s a good as the Friends ski resort set from a couple of years ago. The major issue is that it doesn’t have a ski lift. But if you plan to expand it, it’s a good starting point.

  • Melanie January 1, 2020, 5:44 PM

    Too many to choose from! I really like the creator bookstore. I may cash in some VIP points and get that and the X wing fighter. I’m in the process of hanging some Star Wars fighters from the ceiling. Saves on shelf space! Happy New Year everyone!

    • Håkan January 1, 2020, 10:40 PM

      Ah, yeah. You need strong strings and supports, though, or accidents are prone to happen…

      • Melanie January 2, 2020, 1:12 PM

        Why is it they always seem to fall from the ceiling at 3 am? Why not noon or 4 pm? 😉

        • admin January 2, 2020, 2:19 PM


          • Melanie January 2, 2020, 7:55 PM

            Hanging X wing, Y wing, and an A wing fighter from the ceiling. And how if they fall, they always seem to fall in the middle of the night! I think? LOL!

  • Legostuff14 January 1, 2020, 11:07 PM

    Thank you jabber-baby- wocky. I’m still thinking on it. Right now I’m enjoying my new Lego sets I got on christmas. I may just stick to smaller and less expensive sets. If I do get the ski patrol set. I would put log cabins around it for a ski Resort. Just change the grass with snow ( white base plate).

  • Rob January 2, 2020, 11:11 AM

    Cute little rat! Now with my mom being born in Europe, I doubt she’d be too excited to see a Lego build rat, but eh, she has been known to surprise me before.

    • Håkan January 2, 2020, 12:36 PM

      I’m an urban kid. At night, I see real ones on an almost weekly basis…

      • saki January 2, 2020, 3:34 PM

        You guys have rats in the city? I guess I just never thought about that. I have never seen one.

        • saki January 2, 2020, 3:35 PM

          I mean I haven’t seen a rat in the city. I suppose they are out there. Now I’m nervous.

          • Håkan January 2, 2020, 6:45 PM

            There are rats in Stockholm and all big cities where there’s a lot of food around. Rats tend to be quite shy and generally run away from humans, though.
