LEGO is an old hand in making everything old new again, sort of. Many of their set releases and GWPs turn out to be revamps of ones they rolled out years or decades ago. You know the LEGO Harry Potter Gryffindor Dorms (40452) GWP? It’s a slightly more detailed reissue of the “very old” Gryffindor House (4722) set from the theme’s early years. Now German LEGO news source Promobricks tells us of an upcoming set based on an early LEGO Ideas set. How early? The original set, DeLorean (21103), was the fourth release back when LEGO Ideas was LEGO Cuusoo.
Now, this isn’t exactly an original rumor. Earlier this year, social media would speculate that set 10290 was the DeLorean from “Back to the Future.” Of course, we know for very long now that it was the Creator Expert Pickup Truck instead. But Promobricks has it that the LEGO DeLorean rumor still lives. New details allege that the set, number 10300, will release early next year. It will first become available in April 2022 for VIPs, then generally by July. The retail price for this rumored DeLorean (10300) will be €169.99, or $194.70 (direct conversion).
Now, as exciting as that might sound, heed the usual disclaimer. The above is a rumor, and must be treated as such until LEGO gives official word. Still, a new brick-build “Back to the Future” DeLorean sounds cool. Let’s hope this new allegation pans out.
