Instagram user brick_clicker is reporting that 2022 will see the launch of the next pair of Brick Sketches following the release of 40456 Mickey Mouse and 40457 Minnie Mouse earlier in 2021. Currently, the theme has six sets from DC, Star Wars and the two Disney icons, but should this rumour be true Marvel may be added to that list. The collection has explored superhero and villain characters before with 40386 Batman and 40428 The Joker.
The source states that 40535 Iron Man and 40546 Miles Morales are both arriving on shelves in 2022, with no specific date mentioned. It is believed that the two will cost $17 / £15 each, aligning with the current price of Brick Sketches sets.
The names of both suggest that they would be a brick-built caricature of the appropriate hero with Iron Man and Miles Morales, another version of Spider-Man from the multiverse, respectively.
The Instagram user also mentions that these characters will not be portrayed as BrickHeadz, but in the flatter form instead. However, all information presented should still be treated with caution until the LEGO Group makes an official announcement.
Anyone wanting to catch up with the current range of LEGO Brick Sketches can do so now on the official online store with at least half of the theme discounted for Black Friday in the US and UK. You can find out more on our dedicated webpage.
