Next Saturday, LEGO CON 2022 will start the global LEGO show via live stream from the LEGO House in Billund. And LEGO fires up all its own channels in the social networks with messages so that no LEGO fan plans June 18, 2022 elsewhere. But what news should LEGO CON 2022 viewers be excited about on the in-house YouTube channel? In the past few weeks there have always been the first teasers and very specific hints, which we have summarized for you.
A month before LEGO CON 2022, the Danish company published a comprehensive press release about the show and filled the website with information, which we have of course also reported on for you. Already in the official trailer you could see how much anticipation LEGO seems to have for the virtual event. With lots of small posts and inaccurate announcements on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, LEGO also wants to get its audience excited.
But apart from LEGO, there were also initial indications from other companies or licensors that provide us with very specific information about the content of LEGO CON 2022.
The most important
But first the facts: the live stream of the LEGO CON 2022 starts in Germany on Saturday, June 18, 2022 at 6 p.m. German time (CEST, i.e. 5 p.m. in London, 12 p.m. in New York and 9 a.m. in Los Angeles) on the LEGO YouTube channel. The stream is an estimated length of two hours have and direct from the LEGO House in Billund (Denmark) Posted. If you cannot or do not want to keep the date free, you can also watch the recording afterwards both on YouTube and on the LEGO CON website.
LEGO will LEGO CON 2022 on YouTube offer several times. In addition to the complete live stream, LEGO also offers the stream subtitles in German, Italian, Spanish, French and Dutch, as well as in both American and British sign language as well as with German or French audio transcription.
We have included the official trailer for you.
In preparation, LEGO has already solicited questions from LEGO designers on social media. In addition, spectators should prepare some unspecified stones. Since there will also be an interactive part, LEGO has also asked for images that should be addressed to LEGO in the various networks and should be provided with the hashtag #LEGOCON. In addition, LEGO particularly asks parents to let their children participate in LEGO CON via the LEGO Life app (for iOS from the Apple App Store or for Android from the Google Play Store), as this is a protected space for children.
To organize a smartphone and prepare bricks, LEGO has already provided instructions for three items in the VIP Rewards Center that can be downloaded without using VIP points. So you can then build a mobile phone holder, a “utensil” and a stone box from your own stones.
The LEGO CON 2022 program
LEGO CON 2022 will be moderated by hostess Vick Hope and hosts Melvin Odoom and Joel McHale. Melvin Odoom has already participated in LEGO CON 2021 and has been the presenter of the British since 2017 LEGO Masters. Also American actor and comedian Joel McHale already has a LEGO past as a spokesperson for X-PO in LEGO Dimensions. The TV and radio presenter, journalist and author Vic Hope has not been found directly in the LEGO context as far as we know, but has already been used for the Wizarding World or the Disney Channel UK worked.
The spoiler notes
Overall, LEGO has posted several numbered spoilers with clues on social media. Oddly enough, the numbering isn’t consistent, nor are they fully numbered, or all appeared in full on all platforms. Nevertheless, we sorted and processed them as best we could.
Spoiler #1: New LEGO Star Wars sets
The first spoiler refers to Lego Star Wars. A big announcement is promised here in the description. In the teaser video, LEGO then also writes that new LEGO Star Wars sets will be revealed and unprecedented insights behind the scenes will be granted.
Since we were recently able to present numerous LEGO Star Wars innovations for August 2022, the following sets are still missing, some of which will probably be presented at LEGO CON:
- LEGO Star Wars 75323 The Justifiers
- LEGO Star Wars 75332 AT-ST
- LEGO Star Wars 75337 AT-TE Runner
- LEGO Star Wars 75340 Advent Calendar
Spoiler #2: LEGO Minecraft
The second teaser, but not numbered this time, refers to that Update of The Wild for Minecraft. It is announced that Agnes Larsson attend the show this year and about everything related LEGO Minecraft will speak. The Swedish game developer has been working on Minecraft at Mojang since 2016.
Spoiler #3: The moderators
This video announced for the first time LEGO CON 2022 Hosts Vick Hope, Melvin Odoom and Joel McHale. Already the choice of presenter and moderators gives us the first indications of the announced program items of the LEGO Masters Live Show and possibly the planned one Tour of the Warner Bros. Studio in London titled The Making of Harry Potter. Already in the first trailer was here a super secret guest from the Harry Potter movies announced.
Spoiler #4: LEGO Minecraft
Also this spoiler refers to LEGO Minecraft and says you will see a unique team of Minecraft and LEGO master builders. Presumably this is on the Spoilers #2 referenced. In terms of content, to be honest, we don’t expect any exciting news about LEGO Minecraft.
Spoiler #5: Multiple 90 Year Anniversary Sets?
This teaser marks LEGO’s 90th anniversary. We already know from the press release that the celebrations for this anniversary are to be heralded at LEGO CON 2022.
Here we are currently firmly assuming that the LEGO 10305 Knight’s Castle of the Lion Knights will be presented in this context. We may also get more information and possibly a full presentation of the LEGO 10497 Galaxy Explorer.
Since LEGO probably doesn’t just want to shine with real new sets, we will also be shown other sets that are already well-known for the anniversary, such as the free LEGO 40567 Hideout in the Forest or the already available LEGO Classic 11021 90 Years of Fun.
Spoiler #6: LEGO Masters
Again, this teaser is probably not particularly relevant to most of our readers as it refers to guests on a US and UK version of a series. The sound in the video sounds quite familiar LEGO Masters.
Spoiler #7: LEGO Avatar
In the seventh teaser, LEGO speaks of a new theme world to be presented at LEGO CON. In our opinion, the brand new theme world should be behind this spoiler LEGO avatar hide. Accordingly, we naturally hope that we will be presented with all four Avatar sets from set numbers 75571 to 75574 over the course of LEGO CON.
Avatar’s official Twitter account has also not kept a low profile in this regard and has published its own teaser that shows the LEGO Avatar logo quite openly:
Spoiler #8: Sanctum Sanctorum
This teaser is intended for Marvel fans. And the imagery makes it quite clear that the short video is on Doctor Strange relates. We are sure that we are looking forward to the presentation of the LEGO Marvel 76218 Sanctum Sanctorum can look forward to.
LEGO had also announced other themes. The information announced about LEGO Games could be new insights into the adventure puzzle LEGO Brick Tales by Thunderful Games. But of course we’d also like to take a look at that LEGO 10306 Atari 2600 throw, which also seems not unlikely based on a tweet from Atari, as they are teasing several announcements for this month due to the 50th anniversary.
In another thematic block, there will be a master class with Angus MacLane, the director of the Disney Pixar film Lightyear, which will deal, among other things, with the new transparent yellow disc in the LEGO 76832 XL-15 spaceship.
The exclusive insight into one is also exciting new LEGO Group partnership, who were also credited as “Our Awesome Partners” in the trailer. Whether it’s just the makers of Avatar or the collaboration announced earlier this year EpicGames hide remains to be seen. Also, next to the presentation of a new Minifigure series by the minifigure designers too LEGO Ideas, LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Technic, LEGO BrickHeadz and LEGO Super Mario named.
Whether the entire LEGO CON 2022 will be a real success or whether LEGO will have to do it again on its own depends largely on how free of leaks or accidental announcements the week that has just begun is.
If LEGO succeeds in ensuring that some of the planned program items are actually new products that will only be published as part of the live stream, then it will probably be an entertaining and exciting show that we will also be following closely here in the blog. But if all the news is already published elsewhere in the coming days, then it could (at least for the well-informed circles) become rather boring.
Personally, we would really wish that we would only have to worry about rumors in the next few days and that LEGO CON 2022 would be a firework of news, because that’s how we have the most fun at such events.
What are your wishes for LEGO CON 2022? What announcements are you really looking forward to? What are you speculating on and what are you not interested in at all? Or are you not going to watch LEGO CON 2022 live at all and are you waiting for follow-up coverage? Or are you afraid that pretty much everything will be known in advance anyway?
