LEGO CON 2022 is finally here! After being announced earlier in the spring. The LEGO Group is now returning to the virtual stage in Denmark for its second-ever showcase. With high expectations of new kits from Star Wars, Marvel, and other themes, as well as first-ever additions to the lineup from Avatar, we’ll be covering everything announced at LEGO CON 2022 as it happens.
LEGO CON 2022 is live!
The second-ever virtiual LEGO convention is kicking off today out of the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark. Throughout the past few weeks we’ve been covering what to expect from the event, going as far to spoil some of the reveals ahead of time like the upcoming LEGO Avatar lineup.
Officially starting at 12 p.m EST when it goes live on Youtube, we’ll be live-blogging the event down below and picking out all of the highlights. So stay tuned over the next 2 hours as we cover everything revealed at LEGO CON 2022.
Things are starting off today at LEGO CON 2022 with Joel McHale and Vick Hope. They’re teasing all of the new reveals today, confirming our suspicions of new Star Wars and Marvel sets. Joel also makes a cheeky remark about how some of the sets have already been leaked, definitely pointing a finger at us at 9to5Toys.
Next, the LEGO CON 2022 action heads over into some live LEGO Masters building action. Nothing new or of any note has been revealed here, so we’re moving on. This has been followed up showing off the LEGO Lightyear sets that were released back in March.
Over 20 minutes into LEGO CON 2022, we’re finally getting a first look at an entirely new set! And it’s from the MCU! Showcasing the latest addition to the Marvel side of the lineup, the new Sanctum Sanctorum has been revealed. In the same style as last year’s Daily Bugle, this one arrives with 2,708 pieces and nine minifigures. There’s tons of references packed into the three different floors, as well. It will sell for $249.99 once it launches on August 1.
Here’s a breakdown of who’s included this time around:
- Doctor Strange

Onto some Bricking News! There’s a new customizable BrickHeadz figure themed around a famous football club. The 530-piece set will retail for $19.99 and allows you to turn yourself into a LEGO FC Barcelona fan. There’s also a fun little goal post mini build to go alongside your customized figure.
Now LEGO CON 2022 is heading over to the 90th Anniversary of the company. 9to5Toys first reported on what to expect from the Classic Lion Knight’s Castle and Galaxy Explorer remakes back in May, and today we’re actually getting an official reveal! Both of these new sets will be launching later this summer on August 1, and recreate some fan-favorite models from over 30 years ago.
LEGO CON 2022 reveals new 90th Anniversary sets
First up, the LEGO Group is getting in on the Space action with a new version of the Galaxy Explorer. Stacking up to 1,254 pieces, this one is a remake of the original that launched back in 1979 and is 1.5 times bigger than before. It gives the build a modern refresh with more modern techniques and includes four different space men. The designer also allows builders to reassemble the original version from all those years ago, too. LEGO’s new Galaxy Explorer will sell for $99.99 when it launches in August.
Then there’s the larger of the new 90th Anniversary sets, with the Lion Knight’s Castle reimagining yet another classic model.

Now available for pre-order, the upcoming oruk Makto and the Tree of Souls will sell for $149.99 when it ships October 1.
Including all-new minifigures for the Na’vi, these are surely some of the more unique and colorful creations to hit the LEGO lineup in some time. Today’s official reveal comes after our first look at the theme last week. Here’s the full lineup, three of which have yet to be officially released.

After 20 minutes of no reveals, LEGO CON 2022 is moving on to give us a closer look at one of the upcoming LEGO Mario sets.

LEGO Plants from Plants is getting some love! With the LEGO Group announcing today that half of all sets are now designed to include one of these pieces made from sugar cane. It’s a fun tidbit, and certainly a milestone worth celebrating!
LEGO CON 2022 is also showcasing the latest addition to the Art lineup. Arriving at the Floral Art Mosaic, the upcoming build lets you builld several different flower designs out of 2,780 pieces. It’ll be joining the LEGO lineup on August 1 at the $79.99 price point.
Star Wars wraps up LEGO CON 2022!
Wrapping up by showcasing, two all-new LEGO Star Wars sets have been revealed!
Arguably the most hyped up set of the year from a galaxy far, far away is the new LEGO AT-TE. It’s been ages since we’ve seen the Clone walker released to store shelves, and this summer is going to be seeing the return of the beloved vehicle. This time around, the set will stack up to 1,082 pieces and includes six minifigures. The theming is based around Revenge of the Sith, which departs from previous releases that have been focused around the Clone Wars.
While you can get the full scoop on what to expect from the set in our standalone coverage, highlights include the first-ever Phase II Commander Cody minifigure to go alongside some 212th Clone Troopers, an AT-TE Gunner, and three Battle Droids. That’s all at the $139.99 price point.
Also revealed today at LEGO CON 2022 is the latest creation centered around The Bad Batch. As only the second-ever kit from the animated serious, the upcoming LEGO Justifier 75323 assembles Cad Bane’s ship. It will stack up to 1,022 pieces and includes five minifigures. Two of these have already been released in previous sets, but three are exclusive to the new build.
Cad Bane himself is of course a must considering this is his ship, and right by the bounty hunter’s side is his droid companion Todo 360. Completing the set is an all-new Omega minifigure, which finally brings the last member of the Bad Batch into brick-built form.
Both of these sets will be hitting store shelves on August 1 alongside the rest of the LEGO Star Wars summer lineup. Today’s LEGO CON 2022 reveals also completes the entire wave, as all of the other kits have previously been released and available for pre-order.
