We’re counting down the days now to this year’s LEGO Con. Come Saturday June 18 the event will kick off in Billund, viewable online (at different times per time zone). Expectant LEGO fans can look forward to the reveal of several major set reveals. These particular items have been rumored and hyped for long enough too. But exactly are we in store for this LEGO Con 2022? LEGO’s gladly taken care of that according to Brick Fanatics. Their social media’s been abuzz this week with details for the coming weekend. And we’ll relay them now.
In a virtual con supposed to run two hours long, LEGO Con this year has some big sets to unveil. In apparent order we have LEGO Marvel followed by LEGO Star Wars. The former’s certainly the new Sanctum Sanctorum (76218). After that come the tie-ins for allegedly the finale to LEGO Ninjago. Then we get a break with a virtual studio tour of Wizarding World London for LEGO Harry Potter. LEGO Friends shows its stuff next, with LEGO Minecraft following up. LEGO Super Mario also has new character packs to tease. We’ll also see LEGO tie-ins for “Lightyear” in-depth. Finally there’s the reveal of a new LEGO theme, which may just be LEGO Icons, formerly the Creator Expert line.
One should note that some LEGO social media spoilers weren’t included in their tentative schedule? LEGO Avatar and more 90th Anniversary sets spring to mind. The “LEGO Masters” reality show franchise does get a prominent spot. It’s no surprise given that presenter Melvin Odoom is co-hosting this event. He’ll be joined by Vick Hope and Joel McHale. LEGO Con 2022 will live-stream on YouTube this June 18. London gets it at 5PM, New York at 12PM, and Los Angeles at 9AM.
