In case you missed it, LEGO released a couple of teasers over the weekend that hints at two upcoming LEGO sets based on existing licensed titles. Shared over its official Twitter page, these new LEGO licensed sets will most likely cater to adult fans of LEGO and will build on what its predecessors have offered before.
Both released in 2019, the LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) and LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) are some of LEGO’s licensed sets that have the more serious LEGO collector in mind. The former is a form of collaboration with Netflix particularly in promoting one of its hit series Stranger Things, while the latter is a celebration of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. TV series, one of the most popular sitcoms of our time.
And after two years since their launch, LEGO’s recent tweets came in as a welcome surprise that hints at the continuity of these themes. Check out these LEGO teasers below.

These teasers don’t say much about the kind of sets that we can expect from LEGO coming from these themes. The LEGO Stranger Things post is simply a brick/minifigure version of a clip from the series Season 4 trailer as you can see below.
The LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S. post is a reference to the gang set on a minifigure vignette of what seems to be their apartment. Well, to be frank, a quick search for #legoleaks will give you an idea about what to expect from this upcoming set. And from the get-go of this LEGO teaser, we can assume that the Central Perk set will be joined by another similar set highlighting their living quarters, and is a pretty large set for that matter.
We do not have an official reveal date for these but knowing how LEGO markets its new sets or these new licensed sets, in particular, we can surely expect an official reveal anytime soon. So what do you think the next LEGO Stranger Things is all about, and will this next LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S. set be on your LEGO must-have list? Let me know in the comments below.
