LEGO July 2022 New Releases cover photo

The big wave of LEGO innovations 2022 for the summer already swept past us in June, but July also has some LEGO innovations in store for us in the LEGO online shop, which we will briefly summarize and remind you of in this article want.

The new roller coaster with a double loop from the Fairground Collection should be particularly interesting, and the Jazz Quartet, which is already the 42nd set in the series, is also available from LEGO Ideas, a nice exhibit that is explicitly aimed at adult buyers. For children, on the other hand, the Ultimate Adventure Castle from the Disney series is probably more exciting, while both target groups should be happy with the free addition from the “Harry Potter” theme world, which is expected to be offered from mid-July – assuming the necessary minimum purchase value.

Freebies in July

There will be at least one new free gift in July – and as far as you can see from the first pictures, it turned out really nice: The set LEGO Harry Potter 40577 Hogwarts: The Great Staircase.

LEGO Harry Potter 40577 Hogwarts The Great Staircase

LEGO Harry Potter 40577 Hogwarts The Great Staircase GWP 01

The set LEGO 40577 Hogwarts: The Great Staircase belongs, as the name suggests, to the “Harry Potter” theme world. Unfortunately, you will probably only get it for purchases from this range, whereby the minimum purchase value based on current information 130 euros will lie. The action is on from July 15th to 31st (or while stocks last) in the LEGO online shop and the brand stores.

The most important information summarized:

  • Set number: 40577
  • Name: Hogwarts: Grand Staircase
  • Parts: 224
  • Minifigures: 1
  • Age: 8+
  • Minimum order value: 130 euros (only Harry Potter)
  • Period: July 15-31

The free gift shows part of the magical staircase at Hogwarts Castle with its convertible staircases and countless wizarding portraits on the walls. For this, LEGO has designed two walls with two floors attached at right angles, between which a staircase can be rotated. Amongst the images within an archway is the ‘Fat Lady’, the portrait guarding the entrance to the Gryffindor common room, making the set a great fit for last year’s GWP, the LEGO Gryffindor Dormitories. The width of the walls is a bit too big for the new Hogwarts system, but the set (possibly with minor modifications) can still be connected to the other parts of the castle.

LEGO novelties in July

Now let’s take a look at the regular products that will be new to LEGO in July 2022.

LEGO Icons 10303 Looping Roller Coaster

With a height of 92 cm, the new LEGO looping roller coaster is one of the tallest LEGO sets of all time. Regular sales will start on July 5th, initially exclusively in the LEGO online shop and the brand stores, with LEGO VIP customers already being able to buy the item from July 1st thanks to advance sales. The set consists of 3756 parts, costs 399.99 euros and is the first LEGO roller coaster with a loop – and actually two of them. Originally, LEGO had set a price of 349.99 euros for the set, but then apparently raised this shortly before the official announcement as part of the price increases communicated in June.

That is already appearing with the LEGO 21334 Jazz Quartet 42nd sets of the LEGO Ideas series (see also LEGO Ideas overview) and already the fourth set this year.

The new Disney adventure castle includes 698 parts and will be released on July 1st for an RRP of 99.99 euros. The castle does not have a specific template from a Disney film, but combines the rooms of the five princesses Ariel, Moiana, Rapunzel, Snow White and Tiana contained as minidolls.

Considering the recommended age of 6 years and up, it is not surprising that the castle is mainly composed of large parts and that the focus here is clearly on the gaming experience.

LEGO Creator 40519/40654 Postcard from New York/Beijing

LEGO Creator Postcards 40519 40654

The two built “postcards” with sights from New York and Beijing were actually supposed to appear at the beginning of the year, but were postponed for unknown reasons. Then the first images appeared at the LEGO instruction service, which showed that the Beijing set had apparently been revised and the Chinese flag and mast removed – the reasons for this are also unknown. Now the two small sets with 253 (New York) and 276 parts (Beijing) are going on sale for 14.99 euros each exclusively at LEGO, starting on July 1st.

The two postcards are up-to-date not yet listed in the LEGO online shop, but we hope that this will happen in time for the start of sales. In any case, we are currently not aware of any further postponement.

The most important information summarized:

  • Set number: 40519/ 40654
  • Name: Postcard from New York/ Beijing
  • Parts: 253/ 276
  • Age: 9+

Table overview

Here we have summarized the LEGO July innovations for 2022 in a table that we keep up to date.

Conclusion

Although July offers only a few, but – at least from my point of view – quite attractive innovations. The roller coaster comes up with a nice feature in the form of the two loops that many fans have wished for (although the time difference to the old roller coaster was perhaps chosen too short), and the jazz quartet is something completely different. However, I am particularly looking forward to the free gift: According to the first pictures, the Great Staircase turned out really nice and will be a welcome extension of my little castle – if the availability of the exclusive “Harry Potter” products in the LEGO online shop allows that you reach the minimum order value in a reasonable way.

What do you think of the LEGO July novelties 2022? Are there any sets that interest you? Are you looking forward to the free addition to the “Harry Potter” theme world and what do you think which products are most likely to offer to receive them? Feel free to exchange ideas in the comments.
