New LEGO sets for September 2022: Harry Potter train, Van Gogh and more

It’s a new month, which means one thing and one thing only: a new batch of LEGO sets are now available. Some awesome sets are in this month’s new releases, including a huge (and expensive!) set based on Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Express, and a working motorized lighthouse. Plus, the trippy van Gogh “Starry Night” set has finally broken free from LEGO Store exclusivity and landed on Amazon. Let’s dig, shall we?

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express – Collector’s Edition

My God, this thing is big. Weighing 5129 pieces, it is almost four feet long. It has an engine, a coal tender and a touring car in which you build movie scenes. It also lets you build Platform 9 3/4, where you can pose the 20 minifigures that come with the set, including some of the main Potter characters at different ages throughout the series.

LEGO Van Gogh The Starry Night Is Up on Amazon

LEGO Ideas Vincent Van Gogh - Starry Night

Previously a LEGO Store exclusive, this impressive set is now available on Amazon. It lets you recreate Van Gogh‘s masterpiece in brick form, using interesting building techniques that mimic the textures, bulges and swirls of the artist’s unique style. There is even a van Gogh figurine painted on a small easel.

LEGO Advent Calendars 2022

LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar 2022

Sure, it’s early to think about the holidays, but you might want to grab the LEGO Advent Calendars before they sell out. This year’s Advent calendars are based on Star Wars, Harry Potter, Guardians of the Galaxy and more.

LEGO Ideas Motorized Lighthouse

LEGO Ideas Motorized Lighthouse

This LEGO set designed for ages 18 and up is pretty awesome. It depicts a magnificent lighthouse on a rocky cliff above the ocean. It includes a lighthouse keeper minifigure, plus a rowboat and captain. But the main draw here is the light at the top that glows and spins, powered by a battery and motor.

LEGO Minifigures Series 23

LEGO Minifigures Series 23 (6-Pack)

A new series of LEGO figures is also up on Amazon. There are 12 figures in total in this set, but they come in blind bags, making them great gifts or party favors. Series 23 features an eclectic cast of characters, ranging from a nutcracker and holiday elf to costumes like a green dragon and even popcorn. For my money, they can’t quite beat the Muppets action figures, but they’re certainly cute on their own. You can get a 6-pack from Amazon or an individual blind bag from the LEGO Store.

LEGO Spider-Man minifigures

LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Minifigure

Finally, a trio of buildable Marvel minifigures are now also available. You can choose between Spider-Man, Miles Morales and Venom. These are intended for children and they are not very beautiful. But the price is right.

This does it for September’s most notable LEGO releases. Check back next month for a whole new batch.
