Which LEGO® sets have the most new parts? October & November 2020

Posted by Admin

Time once again for our regular list of the newest LEGO® sets showing the quantity of new parts each of in them. I say regular – this one actually covers about 2 months because there have not been many new releases recently. Developed in partnership with TobyMac from Rebrickable, we show both quantity as well as overall percentage of new elements. So if you like to buy sets knowing they'll contain stuff you don't yet own, use our table as one of your purchasing factors. 

If you're buying, remember VIP Weekend is happening in some countries this weekend, 21 and 22 November 2020. It's double VIP points and there are awesome gifts with purchase - but these may vary by territory, so do check yourself. Consider using our affiliate link; New Elementary may get a commission.

Note that 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 October & November 2020 and their quantities of new parts

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. The colosseum absolutely dominates, as expected. Thanks for the handy summary.
