April has officially arrived, and with it comes a selection of the latest LEGO kits. This time around there aren’t quite as many all-new creations, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find some of the year’s most exciting builds. Most notably delivering the new 1,800-piece Back to the Future DeLorean, among other kits from the Star Wars universe, everything available now and dropping later in the month is detailed in our LEGO April 2022 buyers’ guide below.

LEGO buyers’ guide for the new April 2022 sets

Following a rockier start to 2022 in the LEGO world, last month saw the year’s largest collection of kits arrive from all kinds of themes. You can dive into those new builds right here, but for now we’re shifting our attention to what April has in store in terms of the latest from the LEGO Group.

This time around, you’ll find more of a focus on quality over quantity with a much smaller roster of just-released creations. Creator is taking the spotlight with arguably one of the most eye-catching builds this year so far, while the likes of Marvel is carrying the new LEGO builds until later in the month when Star Wars and Jurassic Park can get in on the action.

You can check out the entire collection of new builds right here, or continue reading our LEGO April buyers guide as we break down the best of what’s now available.

New LEGO sets for April 2022


By far the most exciting set to launch in April has to be The LEGO Group’s return to Back to the Future. Joining the Creator vehicle lineup, the new DeLorean arrives as as must-have for fans of the time-traveling flick as well as anyone who appreciates a good brick-built video. Specifically a Creator 3-in-1 set, the new DeLorean stacks up to 1,856 pieces and arrives with a enough pieces so you can assemble all three different versions of the iconic ride from the movies.

As detailed as the car is, it still manages to stack up to more than 14 inches long. Tons of accessories can bit fit into the DeLorean’s trunk, like the included hover board, case of plutonium, and more.

Then there’s the minifigures, which really complete the Back to the Future theming with a pair of exclusive inclusions. Both Marty McFly and Doc Brown are included and round out the build alongside a display plaque and stand. It clocks in at $169.99 and will surely be the star of the show for the new LEGO April 2022 sets.


Marvel is also joining in on the new LEGO sets for April 2022 with quite a few different creations. This is certainly one of the more diverse lineups in recent times, with a handful of sub-lines to the superhero theme. The Mech Armor sets that were originally supposed to launch all the way back in January are finally making an appearance on store shelves both physical and online, and were also seeing some other smaller kits too. Just don’t forget about the Goat Boat from Thor Love and Thunder that will be launching toward the end of April as yet another new LEGO set.
