In case you need reminding, this year 2022 marks the 90th anniversary of LEGO. True, the LEGO brick only came to be in 1949. But we’re reckoning from the very start of the toy company founded by Ole Kirk Christiansen in Billund, Denmark. As part of celebration preparations from last year, LEGO gave adult fans a vote on what classic theme to revive. New sets from the top-voted theme/s would launch this year as part of LEGO for Adults. And as German LEGO news source Promobricks tells it, there’s one classic throwback set being teased.
From the 1980s to early 1990s, LEGO released a variety of castle-themed sets across multiple “LEGO Knights” lines. According to rumor, there will be a Lion King’s Castle set, numbered 10305, due to launch in August. It’s apparently based off the LEGO Lion Knights line from 1984, particularly King’s Castle of the Lion Knights (6080). The only other product detail this rumor has is the price: a whopping €349.99, or around $386.53 in exact conversion. It hints at two things. First, the castle build must be pretty huge. Second though, it would seem only adult LEGO collectors could have that kind of cash on hand.
In closing, we’d just like to remind readers that the above speculation from Promobricks should be considered rumor. We’ll have to wait until LEGO says something officially. Given that the alleged launch for this Lion King’s Castle is in August, we might be waiting awhile.
