New LEGO sets being released in January 2019

Can you believe it is already 2019?  This year I will turn 49.  That means I’ve been playing with and collecting LEGO for over 40 years.  I sure wish I had saved the sets I played with as a kid.  But I know they are in good hands, at my brother’s house and getting used by my nephews.

There has been a lot of information flying around Instagram, Youtube and LEGO Blogs about new sets being released in 2019, including sets in the LEGO Cities, Classic, Creator, Friends, Ninjago, Minecraft, and Star Wars.

At first there wasn’t any info about release dates, but as December progressed, more information became available, and eventually over 100 new sets were visible on the LEGO store website as coming soon.  I’m pretty excited to see all the new ones coming out!  You can read about all the new 2019 LEGO Releases on a this separate post.

Lego Forma IndieGogo FishOne other set I’m excited that is being released is LEGO Forma on the IndieGoGo site.  It’s an articulated fish with different “skins” and it is scheduled to be sent out in January to the backers of the program (expect to see a review on my site when I get it).

Of course the big news for NEW LEGO sets in January of 2019 is the release of the Overwatch Series.  I pre-ordered these sets as soon as I heard about it (and told you about it in my LEGO sets being released in NOVEMBER post).

I’m very excited about the release of these sets, and have a feeling they will be extremely popular and hard to get as not only will LEGO fans hoard them, but the will be collected by Overwatch players and collectors as well.

Lego 75975 Overwatch Watchpoint: Gibraltar

This is the most expensive set of the new LEGO Overwatch series, coming in at $90.  It’s got 4 minifigures (Pharah, Mercy and Reaper are minifigures and Winston is big figure on scale with the Hulk or Thanos).  There is also the classic Overwatch Rocket, which I believe can break apart into 2 smaller rockets, as well as a Launch Pad which holds the rocket in a launch position.  There are also some food elements, and of course some very cool Overwatch weapons.

75973 D.Va & Reinhardt. (455 pieces) $39.99

This set contains 2 more Tank Heroes in a Lego Mech format: D. Va and Reinhardt.  These Mechs aren’t as big as the Bastion, but they do open so a minifigure can fit inside.  Plus you get a D.Va and Reinhardt Minifigs.

75971 Hanzo vs. Genji. (197 pieces) $19.99

This set, which is the 2nd most affordable has several unique features which I believe will make it very popular.  Not only does it come with 3 minifigs, and custom weapons for each of them you also get to build the Hanamura dojo, which has several cool play features.

75970 Tracer vs. Widowmaker. (129 pieces) $14.99

It’s super cool that the cheapest (and smallest) set comes with the most popular Minifig – Tracer!  Plus you get a ship, with room for a minifig, and some LEGO Overwatch weapons as well.  I really hope the pieces are printed, but I have a feeling this set will use stickers.
