Top 10: Lego sets 2023

The Danish juggernaut that is Lego is at full speed with a host of new kits for 2018. Whether you’re looking for something to keep the kids occupied this summer or a great excuse to hide from them until the next school year starts, here are ten of the best new builds.


Architecture Statue of Liberty

Celebrate what used to be great about America with this spectacular Architecture Statue of Liberty. Made up of 1685 pieces, it uses some smart curvature in the main body of the statue to deliver a pleasing interpretation of the original.

The colours are faithfully reproduced and it's an impressive sight too, standing 44cm tall on its plinth. Also included is a booklet containing information about the design, history and architecture of Lady Liberty.

Creator Expert James Bond Aston Martin DB5

This one is a bit special. Announced in July 2018, the Lego Creator Expert James Bond Aston Martin DB5 blends the glamour of the British brand with a stack of gadgets you’d expect from 007.

The 1290 piece kit includes the infamous ejector seat, revolving numberplates, hidden telephone and machine guns, as well as a detailed interior and engine bay. It'll definitely be a great build.

City Passenger Train

A strong nod towards the High Speed Train that turned 40 last year, this City Passenger Train set has a fun mix of classic Lego City design with modern tech, most notably the 10-speed Bluetooth remote control that you can operate from your smartphone.

There are two passenger cars plus a power car, with the former having removable roofs so you can interact with the cafe and included passengers. There is also a buildable platform and four minifigures within the 677 piece set.

Star Wars from Solo: Kessel Run Millennium Falcon

A step on from the classic Lego Millenium Falcon, this Kessel Run version from the Solo film is just the flimsy excuse you need to build a matching pair. Made up of 1414 pieces, it includes rotating laser turrets and spring-loaded missiles, and seven minifigures including Han, Chewie and Lando are also bundled in.

It is strong on details too; there’s an espresso machine and a dejarik table, all accessible via the flip up hull plates.

Technic Bugatti Chiron

One of the few occasions where an expensive Lego kit is still substantially cheaper than the real thing, the Technic Bugatti Chiron achieves a whole new level of engineering brilliance. Containing 3599 pieces, the kit replicates the Chiron’s fiendishly-clever eight-speed paddleshift gearbox, the top speed key that lowers the spoiler and even a Bugatti overnight bag in the boot.

And in case you didn’t already know, 1:8 scale is big.

Creator Expert Downtown Diner

Released earlier in 2018, this Creator Expert set is 1950s inspired and serves up three floors of detail. The ground floor is a diner complete with period details, a chequer pattern floor and a jukebox, the first floor is a boxing gym with muscle-bound, moustachioed pugilist and the top floor is a recording studio featuring a recording booth and mixing desk.

Each floor can be easily separated and the whole building can connect with other modular buildings.
