Here are the best sets to build from the major franchises of LEGO® licenses:
The Best LEGO® Harry Potter Set
LEGO® Harry Potter Hogwarts Courtyard: Sirius’s Rescue 76401 has the iconic elements of the Hogwarts Castle, but is small enough to be a reasonable build in a few hours – max. It is designed to ignite the magic within every adult fan of LEGO® and Harry Potter. This detailed, diorama-esque brick-build encapsulates the fantastical charm of Harry Potter LEGO® theme, complete with an intricate tower, verdant plants, hanging wall vines, spooky spider webs, and flickering torches. A twisting spiral staircase ascends to a guard room and a prison cell, immersing builders in the enchanting lore of Hogwarts.
The includes three of our favorite friends from the Harry Potter franchise: Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Sirius Black. Harry, complete with his famous Firebolt racing broomstick, is ready for action.
Who doesn’t like Buckbeak? The majestic Hippogriff figure with movable wings and passenger-carrying capacity truly brings J.K. Rowling’s world to life. Considering Sirius falls in combat and does no reappear in the series, his minifigure will not be readily replicated and should make for an awesome collectors item.
The Best Star Wars Set From The Bad Batch Series
LEGO® Star Wars The Justifier 75323 is a beast of a starship build! This massive vessel was inspired by Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2. It includes four LEGO® Star Wars (quite unique, I might add) minifigures: Cad Bane, Omega, Fennec Shand, and Hunter, as well as a Todo 360 droid figure. Due to the Bad Batch being its own standalone show, the minifigures are highly collectible! I just received this set for May the 4th and it is absolutely massive.
The LEGO® Justifier starship features a detailed minifigure cockpit, a rear engine with adjustable positioning, a ‘laser’ jail cell, two thermal detonator elements, spring-loaded shooters on the wingtips, and spare ammo in the wing. The set also comes with blaster pistols, a knife, and handcuffs. In a fun play scenario, kids can help Omega escape from the laser jail cell with assistance from Todo 360, and team up with Hunter for the getaway.

Tailor the look with two sticker sheet options, flaunting either Avengers or S.H.I.E.L.D. insignias. This set, a part of the LEGO® Avengers Infinity Saga, and will drop you right back into the movies (just like how the Avengers routinely dropped out of the Qunijet). It’s a collector’s item that brings the thrill of the Marvel universe to AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO®).

Or, switch gears and slide into the daredevil shoes of Harley Quinn, fearless skateboarder extraordinaire, wielding her mallet with an uncanny mix of grace and gusto. It is a super-quick build, but the small-scale only adds to its ability to be displayed, or played with, literally anywhere!
The Best LEGO® BrickHeadz Set From The Mandalorain Series

Each brick contributes to his iconic silhouette, making him a formidable addition to any LEGO® Star Wars collection.
But what’s a Mandalorian without his adorably unique companion? The Baby Yoda figure, affectionately known as “The Child,” or as we love him, “Grogu” is ready to win hearts with his adjustable ears, which you can tweak to show a range of expressions. As if that wasn’t cute enough, he sits snug in his hoverpram that appears to ‘float’ on four transparent LEGO® elements.
