Over the past few days, LEGO news sources have been speculating over some multiple set listings on retailer electriBricks.com. From there we got reports of an expected LEGO Technic supercar set delayed to next year. Major rumor has it that it may be a model of the similarly-delayed Tesla Cybertruck. Several numbered products titled “Coconut” also gained significant attention. The name seems to hint that they could be a new wave of LEGO Indiana Jones sets. Note that the theme last saw releases in 2009. On the vein of licensed-IP LEGO sets, we have more rumors for 2022 Speed Champions.
From Promobricks.de we get this juicy speculation on more electricBrick retail listings, for LEGO Speed Champions this year. We’ve two of eight sets supposedly releasing for the theme this year, numbered 76911 and 76912. Promobricks tells us that these sets are based on two action-movie franchises with notable automotive focus. Furthermore, the source franchises already have prior LEGO set depictions. What do you say to new Speed Champions “James Bond” and “Fast & Furious” car sets? The former made waves in 2019 via the Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262). The latter got repped by Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111) last year on LEGO Technic.
One factor for excitement at these rumored Speed Champions sets are the accompanying character minifigures. Think about it: James Bond 007 and Dom Toretto minifigs! Both would be the first character depictions from the two IPs for LEGO. Vin Diesel’s Dom is a no-brainer, though there are multiple options for the likeness of minifigure!Bond. Several other 2022 Speed Champions items were rumored as early as October last year. We’ll compile them here anew for reference:
