There are a lot of fantastic LEGO models set to arrive on 1st June. And when we say a lot, we mean A LOT. Our bank balances are going to take a beating, that’s for sure.
Obviously, we’ll not be able to buy everything that releases on 1st June. So what are the models we’re most excited about? We’ve rounded them up right here. Obviously this list is not exhaustive – there are WAY more sets launching on 1st June, and quite possibly some that we don’t even know about yet. But these are the ones, so far, we can’t wait to get our hands on.
LEGO 10289 Bird of Paradise
- RRP £89.99
- 1,173 pieces
A new addition to the LEGO Botanicals range, we love the look of Bird of Paradise. It’s an iconic plant and, unlike the Bouquet (read our review of it here!) it comes with its own vase. So no extra purchase necessary. We love how unique the Botanicals range is; it’s not a LEGO range we’d have thought would exist just a couple of years ago, that’s for sure. Read more about the Bird of Paradise here.
LEGO 10292 The Friends Apartments
- RRP £134.99
- 2,048 pieces
Could we BE any more excited about LEGO Friends Apartments? Featuring replicas of Joey’s and Monica’s apartment, both packed with props from iconic moments in the show (Giant Poking Device! Gladys!), it’s a must for any Friends fan. Oh, and there’s even a Janice minifigure. Oh. My. God. If you’re a VIP you don’t have to wait until 1st June – it’s available on 19th May. Read more about it here.
LEGO Architecture 21056 Taj Mahal
- RRP £89.99
- 2,022 pieces
While the last LEGO Taj Mahal was just too big to display, this Architecture-scale model is the perfect size. It doesn’t pack in quite as much detail but it’s incredibly striking all the same. Read more about it here.
LEGO Creator 31119 Ferris Wheel
- RRP £79.99
- 1,002 pieces
If you’ve got a bit of a LEGO fairground going on, this Ferris Wheel is the perfect addition. It’s a Creator 3-in-1 set, so you can also build a small bumper cars attraction or a swingboat ride from the same set. The Ferris Wheel is, of course, the more eye-catching build, though.
LEGO Creator 31120 Medieval Castle
- RRP £89.99
- 1,426 pieces
It’s been a while since we’ve had a really great LEGO castle, despite it once being one of the company’s strongest ranges. This 3-in-1 Creator set does a grand job of capturing the classic Castle theme while bringing it up to date. The alternative builds – a watchtower and a windmill – are great too.
LEGO Creator 31122 Fish Tank
- RRP £24.99
- 352 pieces
Yes, another 3-in-1 Creator set. But a much cheaper, and rather more unusual set! We can’t believe this one is only £24.99. We love how different it is, and how colourful the fishies are. It can also be built into an artist’s easel and a treasure chest.
LEGO Creator 31121 Crocodile
- RRP £24.99
- 454 pieces
Another low-priced Creator set. We’ve had brick-built animals before, but none with quite the level of detail (or size) as this Crocodile. We love it! It can also be made into a snake or frog.
LEGO BrickHeadz 40495 Harry, Hermione, Ron & Hagrid
- RRP £19.99 (TBC)
- 466 pieces
We’ve had BrickHeadz of Harry, Ron, Hermione and Hagrid before, but never quite like this. We love how teeny-tiny Harry, Ron and Hermione are. And Harry’s eyes just make us laugh. These aren’t the only BrickHeadz coming out, either. There’s Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie; Daisy Duck; Pets Dalmatian; and Voldemort, Nagini and Bellatrix.
LEGO Marvel 76178 Daily Bugle
- RRP £274.99
- 3,772 pieces
At a whopping 82cm tall, this brick-built model of the Daily Bugle office from Spider-Man is the tallest Marvel set to date. It looks incredible! Packed with lots of detail, and 25 minifigures, it’s a must-have for any Spider-Man fan. If you’re a VIP member, this one’s available from 26th May. Read more about it here.
LEGO Marvel 76191 Infinity Gauntlet
- RRP TBC (likely £54.99)
- 590 pieces
A brick-built Infinity Gauntlet, you say? This one’s designed in the same vein as the new LEGO busts range – so it comes with a base and plaque, perfect for putting on display. We’re still waiting for a confirmed price, but it’s likely to be around £54.99. Read more about it here.
LEGO Harry Potter 76393 Harry Potter & Hermione Granger
- RRP £119.99
- 1,673 pieces
There’s a suite of new Harry Potter sets landing on 1st June, but one of the most intriguing is this brick-built pair. Basically giant minifigures, we’re intrigued to see if this is a trend that moves over to other franchises. We’d love to see a Darth Vader in this style! You can read more about the upcoming Harry Potter sets by clicking here.
LEGO Harry Potter 76394 Fawkes
- RRP £34.99
- 597 pieces
Another Harry Potter set that deserves a special mention is Fawkes, Dumbledore’s Phoenix. It’s built in the same style as Hedwig, complete with flapping wings and a perch. At £34.99, it looks to offer excellent value, too.
LEGO Speed Champions
- RRP £17.99 each
- Pieces TBC
It’s been nearly 18 months since we’ve had any Speed Champions, so we’re happy to see LEGO finally releasing another wave. 2020’s redesign of the models, making them slightly bigger and more true-to-scale, was a huge improvement, so it would have been a shame not to get any more. Pictured is the Koenigsegg Jesko. We’re also getting a Toyota GR Supra, McLaren Elva, Chervolet Corvette C8R Race Car and 1968 Chevrolet Corvette, Mopa Dodge//SRT Top Fuel Dragster and 1970 Dodge Challenger, and Ford GT Heritage Edition and Bronco R.
