Three of the upcoming LEGO sets

We’ve rounded up the best upcoming LEGO sets to look out for in 2024. Here are the kits you should keep an eye on, when they will be released, and how much you can expect to pay for each.

Every year, LEGO discontinues an array of sets. Take, for example, every LEGO Star Wars set retiring in 2024. But, they have always released a slew of new products to plug the gap.

This year has been no different. LEGO has introduced a ton of new sets for Star Wars, Disney, Technic, and Speed Champions, to name a few. 

However, LEGO isn’t stopping releasing box-fresh sets in 2024, as the introduction of a host of new models is in the works, which include themes such as Star Wars, Technic, and Batman.

Upcoming LEGO Art sets

In 2024, LEGO will discontinue several sets from its Art collection. However, there are new kits art enthusiasts can look forward to. This includes the LEGO-reimagined Mona Lisa.
