The best new Lego sets out in January 2024

Best New Lego Sets January 2024

It’s a new month, and a new year! You know what that means: a huge amount of new Lego sets have just become available. And while there are too many for us to round up in one go (you can browse the new sets on Lego’s website by clicking here), we have picked out our favourites below.

May god help our wallets and our shelving space this January…

A group of Lego Roses

Lego Icons 10328 Bouquet of Roses

The latest addition to the Lego Botanicals range might just be our favourite: this bouquet of roses is every bit as beautiful as the real thing. And bonus: these ones aren’t going to die, wilt, or lose their beautiful red colour.


Lego Ideas 21345 Polaroid OneStep SX-70 Camera

This is the first of two cameras released in January from Lego. Both are great, but this one takes the prize for being the most realistic. Like everything from the Lego Ideas range, it’s wonderfully unique – and a must-have for any instant camera fan, we think.


Lego Monkie Kid Megapolis City 5th Anniversary

Lego Monkie Kid 80054 Megapolis City 5th Anniversary

Monkie Kid might not be the most well-known of Lego’s ranges, but it has put out some rather fantastic sets over the years. The latest is the Megapolis City 5th Anniversary set, made up of 2,330 pieces. It might be in a “kids” range, but don’t mistake this for any old playset – it’s very much worth your time and effort.


Lego Creator 3-in-1 31152 Space Astronaut

Lego is going all-in on space sets in 2024, and while there are plenty of excellent sets to choose from, one of our favourites is undoubtedly this floating astronaut. It comes mounted on a stand, and being a 3-in-1 set, it can also be built into a shuttle or a space dog (what else)?


Lego 80112 Auspicious Dragon

It’s a Lego tradition now that we see Chinese New Year-themed sets every January. Our favourite Lego set of 2024’s offerings is the Auspicious Dragon, a beautifully-ornate oriental dragon that’s going to look absolutely brilliant on any shelf or mantelpiece.


Lego Creator 3-in-1 31156 Tropical Ukuleke

If you’re a gamer, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this Lego Tropical Ukulele set is actually an official Tchia build. It’s not, but it could be. This musical instrument is adorned with beautiful, colourful flowers and will look great on any shelf, whether you’re a musician or not. It can also be built into a surfboard or a dolphin.


Lego Icons 31211 The Fauna Collection – Macaw Parrots

It looks like a new range of Lego ‘Art’ sets are kicking off, with the first of The Fauna Collection. These wall-mounted parrots are beautiful, fun and colourful, and are going to look great in any room. Honestly, we’re huge fans of wall-mounted Lego, especially where Lego display space is limited in our homes.


Lego Jurassic World T-Rex Skull 76964

Lego Jurassic World 76964 Dinosaur Fossils: T. Rex Skull

With this set being called Dinosaur Fossils: T. Rex Skull, it makes us wonder whether we’ll see more Dinosaur Fossils released in the same range? Most Jurassic World sets have been geared towards kids, so we’re thrilled to see one that will make an excellent display set. Whether you’re a wannabe palaeontologist or just a dinosaur fan, you’re going to want this in your collection.


Lego Bowser's Muscle Car

Lego Super Mario 71431 Bowser’s Muscle Car

Honestly, we’re not the biggest fans in the world of Lego’s Super Mario playset range. Some of the sets are fine, but their focus on play means that, for us adult Lego lovers, the sets are a little perfunctory. That has changed with Bowser’s Muscle Car, however. Sure, it can be used as part of a Super Mario course, but it looks absolutely fantastic as its own mini display set.

Kim has loved Lego since she was a kid, but didn't get back into the plastic bricks until her late 20s. In the last several years that love has become an obsession, and Lego has taken over her house, and her life! When she's not building Lego, she's likely to be playing video games or writing about them: she's also the co-owner of GameSpew.com. You'll also find her work over on Space and LiveScience.
