LEGO Marvel 2022 advent calendar rumoured to be based on Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

The LEGO Marvel advent calendar is rumoured to return in 2022 with a seasonal set based on the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.

Promobricks is reporting that the LEGO Marvel advent calendar is coming back this year and should be based on an upcoming chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – one that we proposed towards the end of 2021.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is scheduled for release in December 2022 and will come from Director James Gunn, who previously helmed both other Guardians of the Galaxy movies. The source states that the special will be the inspiration for 76231 Guardians of the Galaxy Advent Calendar.

The report notes that the current Guardians of the Galaxy team has seven members being Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot, Rocket, Mantis and Thor or Nebula depending on the film. Thor was last seen departing earth with the Guardians of the Galaxy and will next appear in Thor Love and Thunder, possibly alongside the team with who he travelled during Avengers: Infinity War.

The 2021 LEGO Marvel advent calendar, 76196 The Avengers Advent Calendar, featured seven minifigures too, meaning the entire team may be represented in a single set for the first time. The previous closest model to do so was 76193 The Guardians’ Ship with five members. Note that this is unconfirmed though and any second LEGO Marvel advent calendar might have more or fewer minifigures.

With this Marvel Cinematic Universe source material will also come a price increase for the 2022 advent calendars according to the rumour, with the cost of 76231 Guardians of the Galaxy Advent Calendar said to be $44.99. Like 2021, it is expected to be released on September 1, 2022, ahead of the holiday season.

As always, none of the information presented in this article has been officially confirmed and should be treated with the same level of caution that all rumours are until an announcement is made.
