Rumor of LEGO Creator Expert Vespa (10298) for 2022, with Tie-In GWP (40517)


LEGO boasts a multitude of product lines and themes featuring vehicles, for their gear-headed collector customers. What set theme to choose depends on how you like your fave rides depicted in LEGO bricks. Do you want small and speedy Speed Champions? Do the mechanical details in LEGO Technic  sets fascinate you? Or do you favor the artistic quality of Creator Expert releases? The third line has wowed us with Porsches and Camper Vans and Pickup Trucks this year alone. What might the Creator Experts teams have in store for their faithful collectors next year? Fancy another two-wheeled LEGO vehicle building project?

Brick Fanatics got this rumor courtesy of brick_clicker on Instagram. Their post details an alleged new set releasing early next year, for the Creator Expert/LEGO for Adults/18+ line. It will be a scooter build depiction of Italy’s iconic Vespa luxury brand, numbered 10298. brick_clicker pegs its launch sometime in early 2022 for the price of $100 (or $99.99 more likely). Also included, apparently, is another Vespa-themed promotional set numbered 40517, releasing at the same time. Brick Fanatics believes it to be a GWP. The setup is similar to the Creator Expert Camp Nou (10284) with the GWP Barcelona Celebration (40485). It’s rumored to repeat with Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

With that info out of the way, we must now close with the disclaimer. This tidbit is a rumor and should remain so until LEGO eventually confirms or debunks it. But that shouldn’t discourage collectors from hoping that it’s real.
