August 1st Release Guide

August 1 Release Guide

Happy Friday fellow AFOLs! In anticipation of lots of great sets coming out soon, we’re bringing you an August 1st release guide to help you with your shopping! Many of us collectors feel that “First of the Month” dilemma of what sets to grab immediately and what to hold off on. It’s first-world LEGO®️ problems, but ya know, we’re still here to help. Traditionally you could just wait, buy something later and not have to worry. But over the last couple of years we have seen highly anticipated sets sell out within hours. And not only that, they take a LONG time to come back into stock – I’m looking at you Back to the Future Time Machine! So, we totally get that FOMO dilemma.

Below you will find the August 1st Releases grouped by theme. Click on the links for any reviews that we already have on the site. We hope this helps with all your splurging, gift giving and collecting needs. Happy Shopping!
