Every New LEGO Set Launching in April 2022

A new month is almost upon us, and that means only one thing: a wave of new LEGO sets to look forward to. And this month there are some really exciting ones.

Normally, most launches happen on the 1st of the month. Not in April. We have a handful of LEGO sets landing on 1st April, but we’ll also see a swathe – including Jurassic World and Star Wars sets – landing later on in the month. So pay attention to the release date under each set we’ve listed below; they’re not all the same for a change.

And so, without further ado, here’s every LEGO set launching in April 2022. Which ones are you most excited for? Let us know by typing in the comments box below the article.

LEGO 10300 Back to the Future Time Machine

  • Release date: 1st April
  • RRP £149.99
  • 1,872 pieces
  • Age: 18+

Great scott! We’re beyond excited about the DeLorean time machine. Just look at it! It’s not the first time LEGO has released a Back to the Future Time Machine set, with a smaller Ideas creation having released way back in 2013. But this is a huge step up, thanks to its larger scale and realistic details. It can also be built one of three ways, matching up with the time machine from each Back to the Future film. You can read more about it here.

LEGO Brick Sketches 40535 Iron Man

  • Release date: 1st April
  • Price: £14.99
  • 200 pieces
  • Age 8+

We’re not sure if it’s just the angle of the picture but LEGO Brick Sketches 40535 Iron Man looks a little more 3D than previous sets in the series. It’s also super eye-catching, with Iron Man’s signature red-and-gold colouring jumping off the blue background. We just hope that LEGO does more of the Avengers to sit alongside him (please!). 

LEGO Brick Sketches 40536 Miles Morales

  • Price: £14.99
  • 214 pieces
  • Age 8+

Miles Morales, rather than a standard Spider-Man face, is a weird choice, but we’re absolutely down for it. LEGO has captured Miles perfectly, from the unmistakable Spider-Man-shaped eyes, tight down to his red, baggy hood. His hoodie even has toggles! We love it. And we also love the teal colour that LEGO has opted for in the background. 

LEGO 76204 Black Panther Mech Armor

  • £8.99
  • Age 7+
  • 125 pieces
  • 1 minifigure

LEGO Marvel Avengers 76204 Black Panther Mech Armor is the first of three new sets joining the existing mini mechs already out there. Black Panther comes in a striking black and purple colour. It features movable limbs for great poseability. 

LEGO 76203 Iron Man Mech Armor

  • £8.99
  • Age 7+
  • 131 pieces
  • 1 minifigure

The next mech is Iron Man, also known as Tony Stark. This is unmistakably Iron Man, too, thanks to his iconic red and gold colour scheme. Along with poseable limbs, he also fires studs out of a gun on his hand. Cool. We think this is coming on April 1st; along with the two other mechs on this list, it was originally supposed to be releasing in January 2022. While Wolverine and Black Panther both show an updated release date of 1st April, Iron Man still says “coming soon”, so we’ll soon see if he makes an appearance.

LEGO 76202 Wolverine Mech Armor

  • Release date: 1st April
  • £8.99
  • Age 7+
  • 142 pieces
  • 1 minifigure

Last but not least is Wolverine, with his giant claw hands. Again, his limbs are poseable, and the included Wolverine minifigure can be mounted inside the mech. It’s also got to be said that we’re loving the revamped packaging design for LEGO Marvel mechs, too.

LEGO Marvel 76219 Spider-Man & Green Goblin Mech Battle

LEGO Marvel 76219 Spider-Man & Green Goblin Mech Battle
  • Release date: 1st April
  • £17.99
  • Age 7+
  • 296 pieces
  • 2 minifigures

This is a two-in-one mech pack, essentially. Green Goblin faces off against Spider-Man, both in mechs of their iconic colour schemes. There’s also a Spider-Man and Green Goblin minifigure included.

LEGO Marvel 40525 Endgame Battle

  • Release date: 1st April
  • £13.49
  • Age 6+
  • 62 pieces
  • 5 minifigures

Endgame Battle is essentially just a collection of minifigures – but it’s a very nice collection of minifigures! There’s Thor, Korg, Miek, Valkyrie and a Chitauri warrior. Each minifigure of course wields some accessories. Thor has Mjölnir, Kork has a blaster gun that shoots studs, Valyrie has a sword and a stud shooter, and Miek has, er, knifes for hands. It’s a nice little collection of minifigures, and priced at just £13.49, it feels very reasonable. That’s roughly £2.70 per minifig – cheaper than a blind bag.

LEGO Jurassic Park 76956 T. Rex Breakout

  • RRP £89.99
  • 1,212 pieces
  • Age 18+
  • Four minifigures

We absolutely cannot wait to get our hands on T. Rex Breakout. Okay, the T. Rex might not be quite as impressive as the one found in the now-retired T. Rex Rampage, but it’s also a fraction of the price. Instead, LEGO 76956 T. Rex Breakout shows a diorama from the very first Jurassic Park movie featuring the iconic Ford Explorer cars. It includes four minifigures: Alan Grant, Ian Malcolm, Tim Murphy and Lex Murphy. It’s the first 18+ Jurassic Park/World set, and we hope it won’t be the last. 

LEGO Jurassic World 76951 Pyroraptor & Dilophosaurus Transport

  • RRP £39.99
  • 254 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • Three minifigures & two dinosaurs

Of course, the draw of the Jurassic World playsets has long been the dinosaur figures within them. This one has two: a Pyroraptor and a Dilophosaurus, both looking excellent. There’s also a jeep and trailer, and three minifigures: Ellie Sattler, Ian Malcolm and a guard.

LEGO Jurassic World 76950 Triceratops Pick-up Truck Ambush

  • RRP £39.99
  • 210 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • Four minifigures & a dinosaur

We’ve had a LEGO Triceratops before, but none quite so battle-worn as this one. This set also comes with two vehicles – a jeep and a 4×4 style car, along with four minifigures: Claire Dearing, Franklin Webb and two generic guards. There’s not too much to this set – you’re paying for the dinosaur. But it is a cool dinosaur, so we can’t complain too much.

LEGO Jurassic World 76944 T. Rex Dinosaur Breakout

  • Release date: 17th April
  • RRP £44.99
  • 140 pieces
  • Age 4+
  • Three minifigures and a T. rex

Since it’s a 4+ set, the T. Rex Dinosaur Breakout is a simpler build than usual, comprising larger pieces for small children to more easily put together. We feel like this might be a tempting set for older builders too, though, thanks to the inclusion of a T.Rex – arguably the king of all the dinosaurs! 

LEGO Jurassic World 76948 T. Rex & Atrociraptor Dinosaur Breakout

  • Release date: 17th April
  • RRP £79.99
  • 466 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • Four minifigures, a T. rex and an Atrociraptor

We’ve never heard of an Atrociraptor before. But there’s one here, including another T. Rex. This one’s a different colour to the set above, so we’ve got reason to buy both sets. Of course. It also comes with a buildable transport fan, and a basic structure for that huge T. Rex to destroy.

LEGO Jurassic World 76947 Quetzalcoatlus Plane Ambush

  • Release date: 17th April
  • RRP £44.99
  • 306 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • Three minifigures and an Quetzalcoatlus

‘Quetzalcoatlus’ is a bit of a mouthful, but this white-coloured flying dinosaur is rather unique and likely one that many collectors will want in their collection. It also comes with a propeller plane with a cargo hold. Oh, and parts designed to easily break off when you’re staging your own dino attack. 

LEGO Jurassic World 76946 Blue & Beta Velociraptor Capture

  • Release date: 17th April
  • RRP £24.99
  • 181 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • Two minifigures, and Blue and Beta figures

If you’ve seen any of the Jurassic World films, you’ll already bea fan of Blue, the somewhat-tamed Velociraptor. For £24.99, this set feels like one of the best value upcoming Jurassic World Dominion sets. Not only does it contain Blue, it also features a baby Beta, a pick-up truck and a capture cage.

LEGO Jurassic World 76945 Atrociraptor Dinosaur: Bike Chase

  • Release date: 17th April
  • RRP £17.99
  • 169 pieces
  • Age 6+
  • Two minifigures, an Atrociraptor and two baby dinos

We’re moving into pocket money set territory now. The Atrociraptor Dinosaur: Bike Chase features another Atrociraptor (yet again, in a different colour to the other set), along with two cute teeny-tiny dinos. There’s a small structure to build, along with a bike for Own Grady to ride around on.

LEGO Jurassic World 76943 Pteranodon Chase

  • Release date: 17th April
  • RRP £17.99
  • 94 pieces
  • Age 4+
  • Two minifigures and Pteranodon

It’s another 4+ set, with a simple build for beginners. There’s a cute fishing shack here, along with a flying Pteranodon, ready to cause a fuss. It comes with two minifigures: Maisie, who is busy fishing, and Own Grady, who has his own mini jeep to try and catch up to the dino in.

LEGO Duplo 10938 Dinosaur Nursery

  • Release date: 17th April
  • RRP £17.99
  • 27 pieces
  • Age 2+
  • One figure and three dinosaurs

Finally, here’s something for the youngest builders. This LEGO Duplo set features three oh-so-adorable dinosaurs, along with a figure of Claire Dearing. This isn’t a set about dinosaurs destroying the world, of course. It’s one all about taking care of innocent, friendly, baby dinos. Aww.

LEGO Lightyear 76832 XL-15 Spaceship

LEGO Lightyear 76832 XL-15 Spaceship
  • Release date: 24th April
  • RRP £44.99
  • 497 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 3 minifigures

We love the look of this spaceship. What’s especially cool is that it comes with a stand and a display plaque. And so even though it’s a playset aimed at children (8+ on the box), it’s also going to look great on display. We love LEGO sets that manage to appeal to all age ranges, and this is certainly one of them. Plus, we’re digging the colour scheme which just screams Buzz Lightyear to us.

LEGO Lightyear 76831 Zurg Battle

  • Release date: 24th April
  • RRP £24.99
  • 261 pieces
  • Age 7+
  • 2 minifigures

It seems like Emperor Zurg is still Buzz Lightyear’s biggest threat. This Zurg mech is rather ferocious looking. and its moveable limbs make for the ideal playset. It’s over 14cm (5 inches) tall, and includes two minifigures, one of whom is Buzz Lightyear. Oh, and a cat.

LEGO Lightyear 76830 Zyclops Chase

  • Release date: 24th April
  • RRP £17.99
  • 87 pieces
  • Age 4+
  • 2 minifigures

The smallest of the three Lightyear sets is Zyclops Chase. This is a 4+ set, so aimed at LEGO’s youngest builders who have just graduated from Duplo blocks! That means simpler builds, and larger pieces on the mech. It’s a fun little playset, though, and Zyclops looks rather menacing.

LEGO Marvel 76208 The Goat Boat

  • Release date: 26th April
  • RRP £44.99
  • 564 pieces
  • Age 8+
  • 5 minifigures

We love a LEGO Viking longship, and it’s been a while since we’ve had one. This set, which coincides with the release of Thor: Love and Thunder, looks fantastic. And it comes with a great selection of minifigures too. The highlight, though, is surely the brick-built goats pulling the ship from the front.

LEGO Star Wars 75329 Death Star Trench Run Diorama

  • Release date: 26th April
  • RRP £54.99
  • 665 pieces
  • Age 18+

The cheapest of the three new LEGO Star Wars sets is this one, the Death Star Trench Run Diorama. It recreates a scene from Star Wars: A New Hope, where Luke Skywalker is being chased down by three TIE Fighters as he attempts to destroy the Death Star. There are no minifigures included in this one, but we love the tiny recreations of the ships we know so well, set against a backdrop of a cutaway of the Death Star. It’s pretty cool.

LEGO Star Wars 75330 Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama

  • Release date: 26th April
  • RRP £69.99
  • 1,000 pieces
  • Age 18+
  • Three minifigures

Next up is the Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama, this time creating a scene from The Empire Strikes Back. Remember when Luke crash-lands his ship just outside Yoda’s hut? This is that moment. It includes a minifigure of Luke Skywalker, Yoda and R2-D2. The scene itself looks fantastic, too: there’s Yoda’s hut, Luke’s wrecked X-Wing, and a backdrop of wonderfully-constructed swampy trees.

LEGO Star Wars 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama

  • Release date: 26th April
  • RRP £79.99
  • 802 pieces
  • Age 18+
  • Four minifigures

Perhaps you’re a little confused as to why this one is more expensive than the last when it has 200 less pieces? Well, this scene, taken from A New Hope, shows Leia, Luke, Han Solo and Chewbacca trapped in the Death Star’s trash compactor. And, to emphasise the peril the group finds themselves in, the walls of the set move inwards, as if to crush them just as the actual trash compactor would. It’s a very neat feature indeed, and one we can’t wait to see in action.
