Possible New LEGO Indiana Jones Sets Rumored for October

LEGO has been making licensed sets based on many different IP franchises for so long now. Their licensed-IP library actually goes far beyond the lines and themes actively getting new sets nowadays. It may be that some licensed LEGO sets may have had a run of several products then stopped. Such would be the case for LEGO Indiana Jones. This particular theme rolled out 19 sets and two videogames from 2008 to just 2009. That’s probably long enough to forget for some LEGO collectors. But LEGO probably hasn’t, if this rumor happens to be true.

German LEGO news source Stone Wars has it that LEGO Indiana Jones may return this year. They note that Spanish online retailer electricBricks.com listed LEGO sets numbered 75571 to 75574, under the product description “Coconut.” LEGO rarely uses codenames for unpublicized upcoming sets. However “coconut” can be traced to the 2008-09 “LEGO Indiana Jones” videogames. The second game in particular required Indy to collect some coconuts in a certain level. It may sound like coincidence, but then again an “Indiana Jones 5” film’s been in the works for years. It’ll premiere in 2023 after being delayed multiple times, including from this year, by the pandemic.

Beyond these LEGO sets 75571-75574 being blanket-designated Coconuts, all we know is that they’re releasing in October. But until LEGO gives us official word, we’re better off considering this as rumor until confirmation arrives later.
