The hit television series, LEGO Masters, went LIVE with a special show just for LEGO CON 2022.
Featuring six builders from LEGO Masters shows around the world, contestants (including Magnus & Frederik, winners of LEGO Masters Denmark) took part in a high-pressure live building challenge for our 90th anniversary.
Oh, and Will Arnett (yes, that Will Arnett) made an appearance. No big deal.
We pulled the cloak from our new LEGO Doctor Strange set
Then it was onto our favorite mystical wizard from the Marvel universe! We opened the magical portal to reveal the new LEGO Marvel Doctor Strange Sanctum Sanctorum, giving fans a first look at the set.
LEGO designer Justin took us through all the details of Strange’s mysterious Sanctum Sanctorum (in brick form), including 10 new minifigures.
Introducing the LEGO CON Newsdesks
We introduced live Newsdesks at LEGO CON 2022, bringing all the latest headlines to the audience throughout the show.
We heard the latest from the world of LEGO Gaming and got all the scoop from fan favorites like LEGO BrickHeadz™ (where we introduced the new LEGO BrickHeadz FC Barcelona Go Brick Me set) and LEGO Art...
Plus, we had a special sidekick on the show, Charlie the robot, to demonstrate some of its new machine learning features. Robots rule!
...and BREATHE! You’re almost halfway.
The new 90th anniversary sets
Happy birthday to us! LEGO bricks have been a part of children’s lives for 90 years, and to celebrate, we paid tribute to the kids of today and yesterday with new sets.
Loyal LEGO fans were excited by the announcement of the new LEGO Galaxy Explorer, a classic set from the 70s that we brought back to life, especially for our 90th anniversary.
Plus, we had our official reveal of the new LEGO Lion Knights’ Castle.
A family moment!
We reunited Kat Harris (an Adult Fan Of LEGO) with her siblings who live on the other side of the States – a complete surprise for Kat! Growing up, their favorite hobby was building LEGO sets together – and still is! So, it was extra special reuniting them at LEGO CON 2022.
It just goes to show the real power of play. It’s all about memories, loved ones and connecting (literally).
A Minifigure Masterclass
We had a live LEGO minifigure Masterclass!
The audience learned how our tiny little loveable minifigures are made, with LEGO designers Esa and Tara in the studio who talked us through the production process of our Series 23 Minifigures. They’re so adorable!
We teased the epic NINJAGO™ finale
NINJAGO® fans were super excited to get a first look at the upcoming season finale of the NINJAGO TV show!
Expect more Spinjitzu, more bravery and more action as the gang save the world in an epic season finale. Go, ninja, go!
Did someone say Avatar?
Then it was time for one of the biggest announcements of the show! An exciting new partnership between us and *drumroll*…. Avatar! We were joined by Avatar Producer Jon Landau who shared his excitement on the two worlds colliding.
Fans also got a first look at the new LEGO set.
For the big reveal, we obviously had to turn the studio into the beautiful Avatar environment.
Shall we keep going? Oh, go on then...
An epic LEGO Minecraft® build challenge
If that wasn’t enough, we had a special treat for Minecraft fans in collaboration with Mojang Studios (the creators of the Minecraft game).
A Minecraft® gamer and LEGO Creator joined forces to design a one-of-a-kind build for LEGO CON 2022. We also revealed some new sets to fans including the LEGO Minecraft The Abandoned Village and the LEGO Minecraft The Skeleton Dungeon.
A new chapter for LEGO® Friends
Something’s changing in Heartlake City! The LEGO Friends team chatted to us about what’s next for Stephanie, Olivia, Mia, Andrea and Emma.
We even spilled the beans on five of the new LEGO Friends sets for 2022.
We hope fans are excited about the adventurous next chapter.
A magical moment for Wizarding World™ fans!
“First years, follow me!”
We were transported all the way to London for a magical tour of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter™.
Harry Potter actress Evanna Lynch (who plays Luna Lovegood™) and LEGO designer Marcos Bessa took us through the real-life sets revealing how we recreate the magic with LEGO bricks.

Ekow Nimako inspires a new generation
Time for creative inspiration! It can be daunting making your own LEGO brick creations from scratch, but artist Ekow Nimako gave some valuable guidance on how to get started.
Known for his bold, impactful art, Ekow creates Afrofuturistic sculptures crafted with LEGO elements, using only black bricks.
The final stretch! You can do it...
LEGO® Mario™ time!
Next up, challenge time, LEGO® Super Mario™ style!
Two LEGO Super Mario designers, Alice and Didier, raced against a 90-second clock to find the 8 brand-new LEGO Super Mario characters from the Series 5 Character Packs, hidden at LEGO House.
They searched through piles of LEGO bricks to reveal a Red Yoshi, Purple Toad, Blue Shy Guy, Waddlewing and more (all while collecting digital coins on the way).
Treasure hunt goals!
A closer look at the new LEGO Technic™ set
Afterwards, LEGO Technic™ fans got a closer look at the supremely sporty new LEGO Technic Ferrari Daytona SP3 set. Focusing on all the details and intricate elements of the advanced build, it was a visually satisfying experience in celebration of all things LEGO Technic and why perseverance can be super rewarding.
We’re almost there, stay with us!
The best job in the galaxy...
Feel the force of the LEGO Star Wars team!
Viewers had exclusive access to Innovation House, one of our most top-secret locations where LEGO Star Wars sets are created.
We lifted the curtains on the day-to-day of some of our LEGO Star Wars™ designers and what happens behind the scenes. Fans were also excited to see the reveal of the new LEGO Star Wars sets.
The BIG LEGO Masters reveal
Hungry? The LEGO Masters All Star contestants unveiled the masterpiece they were working on throughout the show. It was a spectacular, HUGE, brick-built anniversary cake! Each tier of the cake was based on a different theme made by different contestants, and it was a true celebration of 90 years! If only we could eat it.
