Although there were plenty of announcements at LEGO CON 2022, here are five rumoured sets we didn’t get to see at the event.
From Star Wars and Minecraft to Avatar and Super Mario, last weekend’s LEGO CON was certainly packed with exciting new set reveals. Although much of the content had already been rumoured before the show, it was still exciting to see actual product instead of low-quality images of models and minifigures.
However, despite all of the excitement surrounding LEGO CON, there a number of rumoured upcoming sets that didn’t make an appearance at the event. With that in mind here are five that we hoped we might have seen at the show. Note that the LEGO Group has yet to confirm the existence of any of the sets listed below, so do treat the information mentioned about them as pure speculation for now:
Atari 50th anniversary
A recent tweet from Atari confirmed that the company’s 50th anniversary would be taking place this month. Previous rumours suggested that the LEGO Group might be teaming up with the legendary video game developer to recreate the iconic Atari 2600 console in brick form, but alas no news emerged at LEGO CON regarding a possible collaboration.
UCS Razor Crest
Matching Razor Crest T-shirts worn by two members of the LEGO Star Wars design team was the closest we got to a reveal of this rumoured Ultimate Collector Series set. Whilst it’s possible that a third iteration of The Mandalorian’s ship may on the cards, it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer for some concrete information on the set.
Rumours have been swirling for months regarding a potential large-scale LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express. Speculative reports suggest the set could be a complex model containing over 5,129-pieces and retailing for €499.99. Speculative details on the build also mention a possible September date release may be likely.
A new LEGO Creator Expert model of the iconic Eiffel Tower is rumoured to be arriving at some point in 2022, but details on the potential set are currently thin on the ground. However, a previous report has suggested the Eiffel Tower build could be the most part-intensive, most expensive and biggest set of 2022.
It’s been an incredibly quiet year for LEGO DC sets so far, even more so than in 2021. With a number of DC movies having been pushed back, it’s possible that any potential tie-in LEGO sets could also have been delayed. One recent rumour seems to point to 76221 Batmobile: Flash Tracking launching in 2023 and linking to The Flash film, whilst another report states that 76220 The Batcycle VS Harley Quinn may arrive later this year.
LEGO CON will return once again in 2023, although no specific dates has been revealed so far. A physical LEGO CON event will also be taking place at the Sydney Showgrounds in Australia from July 9 to 10, although the show isn’t likely to include any new product reveals.
