solo a star wars story lego

The title of the next spin-off in the Star Wars saga has been confirmed by director Ron Howard, you can imagine that LEGO is sure to benefit from the release of the film Solo: A Star Wars Story in May 2018 to market a few sets.

What we know from a reliable source via the 2018 catalog intended for resellers: Five classic sets are announced for April 2018, bearing the references 75207, 75209, 75210, 75211 and 75212.

For the rest, a list of the public prices of these boxes circulates, they would be marketed respectively at the public prices of 14.99 €, 29.99 €, 49.99 €, 69.99 € and 169.99 €.

The set 75210 would be according to a Dutch brand which had briefly put these sets online a "Villain Vehicle ", set 75209 would be a"Great Vehicle", set 75211 would be a"Villain ship". No info on set 75212, but I think we can risk trying to guess its content without being too wrong ...

Still via the same official catalog, we know that two Buildable Figures are announced for April 2018. They carry the references 75535 and 75536 and should be logically linked to the film.

Rumor: Harry Potter returning to LEGO in 2018?

This is the cycle of life and LEGOs. It all goes away and then sometimes ends up coming back through marketing.
Latest rumor to date announcing the reappearance of a license which is now almost forgotten: Harry Potter could return to LEGO in 2018. That's all we know.

If the rumor is confirmed, then in my opinion it will be a patchwork of sets taking advantage of the new cinematic saga inspired by the work of JKRowling: Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them which will keep fans busy for the next four years with new films planned.

For the occasion, LEGO may take the opportunity to pay tribute to the Harry Potter saga with a few boxes that will make fans return from the first hour to this universe and its variations.

There is potential, the sets from the original Harry Potter line are now overpriced in the secondary market and the design of some of them really deserves an update to appeal to ever more demanding consumers.

The license, used episodically by LEGO between 2001 and 2011, has not completely disappeared from the shelves. It was used in the world of the LEGO Dimensions video game with four products including a Story Pack to replay the film story Fantastic Beasts : 71253 Fantastic Beasts Story Pack, 71257 Fantastic Beasts Tina Goldstein Fun Pack, 71247 Harry Potter & Lord Voldemort Team Pack, 71348 Harry Potter Hermione Fun Pack.

As usual, this is just a rumor that should be considered as such while waiting to learn more. Not to be confused with the delusions of all those who already see themselves building Hogwarts in UCS version ...

LEGO System Town Map (1958)

It's the rumor at the moment: LEGO would consider celebrating the creation of the plastic brick as we still know it today. In 2018, this piece of ABS plastic will indeed be 60 years old.

We are told (on Eurobricks) a mini range of five sets for the occasion, without really knowing what will be in these boxes. Fans are already going from their favorite assortment, hoping for the monorail, the Castle, the Space Classic, the old-school City, etc ...

We can legitimately hope that LEGO will pay tribute to the ranges that helped create the legend of the brand and all the more or less true stories that some fans believe they remember with nostalgia that go with it (... You see my son, these LEGO bricks, I got them from my great-great-grandfather ... he built steam locomotives in the gardens of Versailles under the benevolent gaze of Charlemagne ...).

Hopefully, LEGO will also pay tribute, with many promotions and exclusive products offered, to all those who have assiduously consumed its products over the past sixty years ...
LEGO System 10184 Town Map (2008)

While waiting to learn more about this hypothetical wave of sets, let's not get carried away. I remind you that in 2008 for the 50 years of this same brick, LEGO had certainly released the heavy artillery with a remake of the Town Plan of 1958 marketed under the reference 10184 but that to celebrate this year the 40 years of the LEGO range Technic we had to be satisfied with that:

LEGO Technic 40th Anniversary Brick (2017)

The advice of the day: Do not expect much, the surprise will be even more beautiful.
