What will there be at LEGO CON?

Through a teaser poster, the LEGO Group revealed a selection of the panels that fans can expect to see including a Minecraft Q&A, Technic race, Harry Potter building challenge, a closer look at LEGO Super Mario’s latest sets and an interview with an astronaut. There will also be a LEGO Ideas spotlight featuring 21327 Typewriter fan designer Steve Guinness.

However, one of the most exciting announcements for builders will be the reveal of a brand new LEGO Star Wars set, and that list isn’t everything the event will have to offer either. We’ll have to wait and see what else will come from LEGO CON.
