The holiday season may be over half a year away, but LEGO isn’t wasting any time getting its new lineup ready for every home they can get into. The 2018 holiday LEGOs have just been revealed, and there’s so much to get that almost everyone can find a LEGO set perfectly suited for them.

Perhaps the most intriguing new addition to LEGO’s lineup is the Powered Up series, which will let kids of all-ages build and control their own Batmobile with an app. The basic Batmobile is launching this summer with two motors and a 321-piece set. However, LEGO is also going to release a Batmobile boost kit that includes an additional motor that can greatly increase the speed and customizable options. Other LEGO vehicles will also be released under the Powered Up brand. 

There’s a lot more Bat where that came from. The LEGO Batman Movie is being kept alive with sets based on the Justice League’s Anniversary Party, Egghead’s Mech Food Fight, Harley Quinn’s Cannonball Attack, and the Bat-Space Shuttle. Batman’s comic book incarnation is also represented by the Attack of Talons and Brother Eye Takedown playsets, which includes a LEGO Batwoman. 

Harry Potter also has a strong LEGO presence this year, with new Hogwarts sets that include the Whomping Willow, the Great Hall, and a Quidditch playing field. Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Dumbledore will also be joining the LEGO BrickHeadz lineup. 

But if you’re a Star Wars fan, your options are even greater. Naturally, Solo: A Star Wars Story is represented with a new Millennium Falcon and a Landspeeder for young Han Solo. But there are also sets that touch upon the prequel era, the original trilogy, and even the current trilogy. 

You can catch the highlights in our gallery below, which includes a look at the Quantum Realm explorer ship from Ant-Man and the Wasp too! Check it out, then let us know in the comments what you're adding to your excessively premature Christmas list.
