While the new “LEGO Hidden Side” mobile game app and product line has a certain quirky creepiness to it, that pales in comparison to something like “Stranger Things.” The popular Netflix sci-fi horror series will be starting its third season this July. And apparently LEGO is tying into the bandwagon.
All this rose out of a rumor shared with our fellow LEGO News sources Brick Fanatics. The word was simple: a new LEGO Stranger Things line of sets coming out this year, coinciding with season 3. The Brick Fan in turn got its own rumor feed courtesy of Twitter, care of Cinelinx editor-in-chief Jordan Maison.
Huh….Looks like we’re getting an official #StrangerThings LEGO set.

The swirling rumors would have it that the LEGO Stranger Things line will first get two location-based sets, one in the real world of Hawkins, Indiana and another in the Upside Down. Needless to say, these sets will carry minifigures of the awesome cast of “Stranger Things,” from Joyce and Jim to Mike and El.
Standard LEGO rumor disclaimers apply: until LEGO comes out with an official statement to confirm or deny these musings, keep those salt shakers within easy reach for the proverbial grain.
And another thing: Jordan Maison’s tweet about LEGO Stranger Things also includes a rumor for a LEGO Star Wars “Episode IX” tie-in. It’s supposed to be another Millennium Falcon build, but smaller, and with a new Lando minifigure. Like with the rumored sets above, the same disclaimer applies here too.
