In 2018, the 40th anniversary of the LEGO minifigure was celebrated in 71021 Series 18 with a Collectible Minifigures costume party, as well as one direct recreation of a classic minifigure. This year, the LEGO Group is celebrating 90 years and a number of sets have been or will be released to reference the history of the company.
Now, Promobricks are reporting that this series won’t wholly be a 90th-anniversary collection of characters, but instead focus on a costume party similar to 71021 Series 18. As always, this rumour should be treated with caution until official confirmation arrives.
They mention 12 minifigures as part of the report, which would line up with the newer total for Collectible Minifigures Series. These include someone in grey armour with a gold visor, gold sword, printed shield and printed breastplate each with the Classic Castle logo from 375 Castle and a white hobby horse, a woman in a green dragon costume and a girl in a fairy costume with a white crown, transparent pink wings, a skirt and candy cane.
Also listed are a woman in a reindeer costume with a gift box and printed heart tile, a man in a red nutcracker costume with a new element combining hair and a hat, someone in a snowman costume with a new head element, a woman in a blue robot costume with an information board and a boy in a popcorn cup costume.
Rounding out the rumoured selection is a man in a ship costume with a captain’s hat and a new ship mould that is attached between the torso and legs, a man in a turkey costume with new head and tail pieces, a girl in an elf costume with a snow globe and a man in a wolf costume.
Based on this reported list, it appears that the rumoured 71024 Series 18 could be covering (at least in some small part) Halloween, Thanksgiving, the 90th anniversary and the December holiday season all in one. No pricing or mention of a release date is included with the rumour, so we’ll have to wait and see if this information turns out to be accurate.
