LEGO Group reacts to LEGO Star Wars summer 2021 rumours

The LEGO Group has reportedly reacted to rumours of this summer’s LEGO Star Wars range by issuing a copyright strike against the original source.

Earlier this month, YouTuber MandRproductions published a list of LEGO Star Wars sets apparently arriving in summer 2021, including new products based on The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars. However, that video has since been removed from the platform.

The channel’s owner Ryan has now tweeted that he unpublished the rumour video at the request of the LEGO Group, which he claims threatened him with a copyright strike if he failed to comply. If you’re not au fait with YouTube’s terms and conditions, copyright strikes are a pretty big deal: rack up three, and you’re facing a permanent ban.

The main takeaway from this, however – as Ryan points out in his tweet – is that the LEGO Group’s decision seemingly speaks volumes about the validity of that original list.

That’s still conjecture at this point, of course, and you should take any rumours with a pinch of salt until officially confirmed by the LEGO Group. But this reaction could well be a telling one for the future direction of the LEGO Star Wars theme…

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
