LEGO’s Vice President of Design is very slowly teasing a new LEGO set

Brick by brick, the LEGO Group’s Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton is slowly but surely revealing a brand new LEGO set.

When he’s not spending his time launching some of the company’s most iconic themes (including the Collectible Minifigures), judging incredible builds on LEGO MASTERS or putting on his producer hat for the LEGO Cinematic Universe, the LEGO Group veteran is apparently still happy to get hands-on with the bricks to design brand new sets.

And as he’s recently teased through his Twitter account, Matthew’s latest product will be available to buy ‘very soon’. Beyond that, details are pretty hard to come by – but the design maestro has at least given us a taste of what’s to come.

So far, we know ­that the mysterious model contains a black 2×3 brick, a white 2×3 brick, and… a red 2×3 brick. Which is to say that we really know nothing at all about it, because that basically narrows it down to, oh, pretty much any LEGO set you could dream up.

Could it be the rumoured 76178 Daily Bugle? How about one of the LEGO Marvel Infinity Saga sets allegedly on the way this summer? Or maybe it’s a summer 2021 set that’s already been revealed – in Creator or Disney, for instance – and the VP is just playing coy with telling us which one it is.

At the current rate at which he’s unveiling it piece by piece, we’ll probably find out just as the summer 2022 wave gets ready to launch. But if it is indeed landing on shelves ‘very soon’, Matthew will hopefully clue us into the set’s true identity a little earlier than that.

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.
