After releasing a cryptic, brick version of one of the clips in the Season 4 trailer of Netflix’s Stranger Things, LEGO seems to bring us closer to the possibility of seeing a new LEGO Stranger Things set anytime soon. LEGO seems to build up the hype when it responded to a LEGO fan’s comment over the latter’s tweet last weekend.
Keep an eye out for more information! 👀🙃✨

Of course, this could mean a ton but given that the context of the comment at that time was all about the likelihood of having new LEGO Stranger Things set or sets soon, then we can somehow have a level of confidence that this is something of a remote possibility in the next few weeks.
I’m not saying that this is in a way, a form of official confirmation since this is still part of LEGO’s marketing strategy to build up the hype. For all we know, it could just be a simple confirmation of the partnership between LEGO and Netflix, considering their 2019 collaboration on the LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) set which is also believed to be scheduled for retirement this year. It may be a way of supporting the series’ 4th season run. But this response from the LEGO Group’s social media handler seems to give more weight to the possibility of related future sets being on their way.
The LEGO fan community (aka that sector where the leaky faucet reigns supreme) seems to be relatively quiet, suggesting that whatever is on our way, it is still a closely guarded secret as formidable as that of the Hawkins National Laboratory. Whatever happens, I guess I will take LEGO’s word for it, and we ought to keep our eyes and radars open for any info that will point us in the direction of these possible future sets.
So what do you think about this latest hint from LEGO? Any guesses on what’s in store? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
