I have a feeling my wife and daughter will each want one of these.
Given the Lego groups current marketing practices, we are lucky they didn't design alternate builds to encourage everyone to buy three of them.

With one of the recent art sets, they ran into an issue because they were limiting the set to only 5 per customer and people needed more than that for all of the builds!
Rumors suggest that there are at least 3 big, 90th anniversary sets that will be announced soon. There's a giant, ~$400ish, castle set that's been known about for months. Recently, the details of 2 other sets have come to light. First, there's a ~200 piece set inspired by The Forestmen theme that reportedly will be a gift with purchase. Second, there is a ~$120, 1200 piece set inspired by the classic 497 Galaxy Explorer.

Also, a new set has been picked by Lego Ideas:

A huge congratulations to our first Belgian Fan Designer Amber Veyt (aka TheAmbrinator) for making her dream a reality and showing that perseverance can pay off - after her original submission in 2020 was not approved. Amber's deep passion for the much-loved Hocus Pocus movie shows in her design, which encapsulates all the little details and characters that really wowed the review board. We believe that it hits a sweet spot for Halloween movies for families, with iconic characters and a location that we really wanted to recreate using LEGO bricks. (Lego Ideas)
Introducing LEGO® Ideas 21336 The Office set a tribute to the Emmy® Award-winning U.S. version of The Office. Originally submitted to LEGO Ideas by Jaijai Lewis (aka Lego The Office on LEGO Ideas) in 2015, he continued to refine and advocate for his love of this show through several iterations submitted in 2019 and finally in 2020, after which it was approved for production.

You can learn more about Jaijai and his unrelenting passion for The Office in his 10K Club Interview.
