Which LEGO® sets have the most new parts? September 2020


Here is the second installation of our latest resource for you: a list of the newest LEGO® sets and the quantity of new parts in them. Developed in partnership with Tobias Witmer from Rebrickable, we  show this both in terms of quantity as well as overall percentage. So if you like to buy sets knowing they'll contain parts you don't have, use our table as one of your purchasing factors. Note: we define 'new elements' as being either:
  • completely new moulds, or significantly altered 
  • existing moulds in new colours (also known as 'recolours' or 'colour changes'), 
  • printed parts. 
We do not include elements that have been given a new Element ID by TLG despite having appeared in sets in the past, because they're irrelevant to builders.

List of LEGO® sets from September 2020 and their quantities of new parts

Harry Potter sets account for the majority of this list. Note that sets released late in September will be included in next month's reports. 

Key to columns

  • 'Quantity Parts' shows the full part count of a set, which you're used to seeing.
  • 'Quantity New Parts' shows how many of those are new. Say a set was completely old stuff apart from just 1 new mould but 8 of them were included: this column would therefore say '8'.
  • '% Quantity New Parts' shows the above values as a percentage. I feel this gives you a sense of the 'value' of the set, regardless of its size or price, by indicating what proportion of its elements you will not already own.
  • 'Elements' shows the number of unique pieces in the set, whether new or existing.
  • 'New Elements' shows how many of those are new. e.g. in the earlier example this would say '1'.

  1. Thanks, I do enjoy the numbers from time to time. I thought the list of new sets this month seemed rather long but the release of HP series 2 accounts for almost half of them.

    Yeah, the CMF releases are going to heavily skew this report every four months or so. Almost all printed deco will be new, and tons of new accessories are produced, often exclusively, for CMFs.
