In case you haven’t noticed, LEGO was quite mum at the start of this year regarding its plans of releasing its lineup of LEGO Speed Champions 2021 sets. It was obviously missing from its H1 2021 catalog and was not even mentioned in our list of expected sets for the first half of the year. This led to some speculations that LEGO might be pulling the plug for this long-running theme, worrying some fans that we might soon see the end for these mid-sized speedsters.
But thanks to new information from Promobricks, we can be assured that LEGO has not given up on the theme and is now expected to release its next wave of LEGO Speed Champions 2021 sets this summer. According to reports from brick street, it seems that LEGO had issues with its planned market launch due to the pandemic. But the sets are all ready to roll-out and we can expect several info and images to be out in the next couple of months. In the meantime, here’s what we know so far based on the brick intel gathered by our friends from Promobricks.
There is a total of six new LEGO Speed Champions 2021 sets that we can expect this June, with new models based on existing brands and a couple of dual-packs consisting of modern and classic speedsters. We don’t have official images as of the moment, but we can surely have an idea of what they are based on their set names and other specifics. The images of their real-life counterparts included here are just an approximation, and might be eventually different from the final LEGO Speed Champion sets that will be offered this summer.

There is another set labeled as 76905, and though we don’t have any further details about this except for its price point of $49.99, then we can perhaps expect this to be another dual-pack set similar to the previous 2 sets above. And considering that their release date is expected to be in June, we can assume that LEGO might be releasing these sets’ official info sometime in April. Be sure to stay tuned for more updates.
