Lego fans have had a lot to be excited about in 2022, with a wide variety of impressive sets being released throughout the year. Here are some of the standout sets that have been released in 2022, as well as a look at what we can expect from Lego in 2023.
One of the most highly-anticipated sets of 2020 was the Lego Ideas International Space Station. This set was designed by a member of the Lego Ideas community and selected by Lego to be turned into an official set. It features over 1,000 pieces and includes intricate details like a miniature space shuttle, cargo bay doors that open, and a posable Canadarm2 robotic arm. It's a must-have for any space enthusiast or Lego collector.
Another standout set from 2018 is the Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle. This massive set includes over 6,000 pieces and is incredibly detailed, with features like the Great Hall, Dumbledore's office, and the Chamber of Secrets. It also includes minifigures of all your favorite characters from the Harry Potter series, making it a must-have for fans of the franchise.
In addition to these sets, Lego has also released a number of other impressive sets in 2020, including the Lego Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 (you can read our review here), the Lego Speed Champion James Bond Aston Martin DB5 in 2022, and the Lego City Space Rocket and Launch Control (2019).

So what can we expect from Lego in 2023? It's hard to say for certain, but we can expect to see more sets based on popular franchises like Harry Potter, "Star Wars," and "Star Trek." Lego has also recently announced a partnership with the LEGO Group and NASA to create a new line of space-themed sets, so it's possible that we'll see more sets in that vein as well. Additionally, we can expect to see more sets based on popular video games, as Lego has had a lot of success with sets like the "Fortnite" sets released in 2022.
Overall, it's an exciting time to be a Lego fan, with a wide variety of impressive sets being released in 2022 and the possibility of even more exciting sets on the horizon for 2023.
