Second LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures series rumoured for 2022

Initial reports of another LEGO Collectible Minifigures series on the way in 2022 have surfaced online, pointing to a follow-up to this year’s 71031 Marvel Studios.

Eurobricks user Flixter claims that a second LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures series will arrive in 2022, potentially explaining previous rumours of four blind-bagged series coming next year (one more than the usual three).

The information apparently comes from the same source that first spilled word on the now-revealed Overwatch 2 set earlier this year, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s reliable. In fact, you should probably take this one with an even bigger grain of salt (Flixter literally says ‘oceans’ of salt) than usual.

Still, given the solid reception to 71031 Marvel Studios’ 12 Disney+ characters – which pulled from What If…?, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and WandaVision – we wouldn’t be totally surprised to see the LEGO Group quickly pump out a follow-up series.

Whether that series will also concentrate on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s streaming shows is currently unknown, but there’s no lack of material: Hawkeye has just finished airing, while Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, She-Hulk and What If…? Season 2 are all set to debut across 2022.

Otherwise, a potential second Marvel series could focus on either the wider MCU (including movies such as Spider-Man: No Way Home, from which we’re missing several key characters), or even plant itself squarely in the franchise’s comic book roots.

The first Collectible Minifigures launch for 2022 is 71032 Series 22, which will arrive on January 1. A series based on The Muppets is then rumoured to be following in May.

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.
