While more and more summer 2022 LEGO sets appeared before August, today we discover even more creations to come. Thanks to the Taiwanese LEGO Summer Catalog, we have a first look at upcoming Technic creations for 2022, like the new Airbus Rescue Helicopter, as well as three of the annual Advent calendars.
LEGO Summer 2022 catalog reveals upcoming sets
Packed in the 140 pages from the Taiwanese LEGO summer catalog are mostly sets that have already been revealed, the two kits that hit stores earlier in 2022 or are waiting until August 1 to arrive. Most of the digital flyer was covered by 9to5Toys before. There are, however, two notable exceptions.
LEGO Technic just had the new supercar join last month, but fans already have something else to look forward to later this year. The first is set number 42145, the LEGO Airbus H175 Rescue Helicopter. This new Technic creation consists of 2,001 pieces and will arrive at a price of $199.99. In what’s a clear sequel to the Bell Boing V-22 Osprey that was canceled just before its release two years ago, the new helicopter has a rescue-focused design that measures over 28 inches long.
Then there is set number 42144, which will be the LEGO Technic Waste Handler. This omdel stacks up to 835 pieces and will join the lineup on August 1, just like its larger counterpart. Priced at $139.99, this set includes built-in pneumatic cylinders that allow the set to move its defining claw arm.
LEGO Advent calendars revealed for 2022 too
The LEGO Summer 2022 Calendar also gives builders a first look at upcoming Advent calendars. While Star Wars Celebration showed a glimpse of what the holiday countdown from a galaxy far, far away will have in store with the Darth Vader beach theme, three new sets have appeared in the flyer.
New LEGO Advent Calendars revealed today include Harry Potter, City and Friends models. Not too much information on what to expect from the theme has yet to be revealed, but there is at least a first look at the box art.
Unfortunately, two of the most exciting licensed Advent calendars, Star Wars and Marvel, are currently missing. These will be the most unique additions to the annual theme, mixing the usual countdowns with beach and Guardians of the Galaxy vibes, respectively.
