The latest LEGO rumor going around claims that there could be new Star Wars minifigures released next year based on several Disney Plus television shows.
The rumor, according to Brick Fanatics, comes from an Instagram post by user @lego_club_news. According to the post, the user reminds us that this is a rumor and nothing has been confirmed. But if this claim is true, the custom minifigures would arrive in January 2022.
However, the Instagram user points out that they find it unlikely due to the fact that it would be a better opportunity to wait for May 4, 2022 to release them in celebration of May the Fourth. In the post, there are Disney Plus logos for the following shows: The Mandalorian, Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and The Bad Batch.
Will LEGO be releasing Star Wars minifigures based on Disney Plus shows next year?
Does this mean that the minifigures will be based on these shows? The Instagram user also suggests that if these minifigures are made available, it would be when all or most of the TV shows are released to avoid spoilers. Which to be fair makes sense, however, sometimes merchandising can often leak spoilers unintentionally. It’s bound to happen here and there.
At this moment, we don’t have actual confirmation that new Star Wars minifigures based on the Disney Plus are coming next year, but this is a rumor we’re willing to follow just in case!
If anyone is interested in staying updated on the theory, they can follow @lego_club_news on Instagram for more details if and when they arise. Until then, you can check out The Mandalorian and The Bad Batch, which are both available for streaming on Disney Plus.
Currently, the Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi series release dates remain unknown, along with The Book of Boba Fett.
