We just took a good look at the highly-anticipated LEGO set for Optimus Prime (10302), from Hasbro’s “Transformers” franchise. It’s but the latest entry to the Age-18+ LEGO Creator Expert (or LEGO for Adults) line this 2022. Starting with the Boutique Hotel (10297), we’ve been blessed with awesome sets for grown-up LEGO builders. And this unprecedented collaboration between LEGO and Hasbro for a brick-built Optimus isn’t even the last for the year. They’ve got more Creator Expert/Adult sets awaiting launch. Some are throwbacks to old LEGO sets, some are new, and others are annual releases. Stone Wars gives us further info on these upcoming releases.
Surely you still recall the LEGO Castle set numbered 10305 that’s been a favored subject of rumor. The last word puts its launch this coming August. But before that, according to Stone Wars, we’ve got an apparent follow-up to the 2018 Creator Expert Roller Coaster (10261). This set, numbered 10303, is said to launch in July. And that’s not all. Here’s a listing of what else to come from Creator Expert before the year’s out.
- Optimus Prime (10302) – Due June 1; see our feature on it
- Roller Coaster (10303) – 3,756 pieces; €349.99; July
- Chevrolet Camaro (10304) – 1,456 pieces; €159.99; summer or autumn
- Castle (10305) – €349.99; August
- Atari 2600 (10306) – €169.99; August
- Eiffel Tower (10307) – €629.99; November
- Winter Village 2022 (10308) – €99.99; Holidays 2022
- Botanical Collection: Succulents (10309) – 771 pieces; €49.99; May
Yeah, the numbering order doesn’t necessarily reflect the release order. Botanical Collection: Succulents is Creative Expert set number 10309, but it’s available now. Also, set 10301, supposedly a space set, has yet to be revealed itself. For now, the above list has concrete info for the sets, but LEGO’s yet to tell us more.
