This year’s event is the first physical incarnation of SDCC since 2019, following two years of cancellations and online conventions during the coronavirus pandemic. And it could also be the first time since 2020 that the LEGO Group comes up with convention-exclusive sets and/or minifigures for SDCC, having passed up the chance to produce and distribute anything for last year’s virtual event.
Just as likely are the first reveals of 2023 LEGO sets, given the company has historically used San Diego Comic-Con to show off brand new licensed products. We’re expecting to see new stuff from themes like Star Wars, Marvel and DC, while other licences like Jurassic World and Avatar could also be in the mix.
In fact, rumours suggest that we’ve still got four more Avatar sets coming alongside 75574 Toruk Makto & Tree of Souls, including a BrickHeadz set and three standard models. Any and all of those could be among the LEGO sets shown off at San Diego Comic-Con (if any), ahead of any further sets that may or may not follow in 2023.
We’ll find out for sure relatively soon, as SDCC 2022 takes place from July 21 to 24. That’s just two weeks away, so keep an eye on Brick Fanatics for updates in the run-up to and across the event.
