There’s a new rumor coming out of left field of a possible LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime set coming this summer. Promobricks is reporting that the set will have set number 10302 and will have 1,508 pieces. It is also presumed that Optimus Prime could be based on the upcoming Transformers: Rise of the Beasts movie that is also coming out this year and it will have him with a jetpack and his rifle blaster along with an information plaque.
This is interesting news because Hasbro/KRE-O had the license for Transformers building sets for a long time. If it did expire and LEGO has acquired the license, it’ll be the first time that there will be LEGO Transformers sets. This piece of news is so random that I have a hard time believing it but LEGO has been making surprising moves this year so it’s not totally out of the realm of possibility. I wouldn’t hold my breath and get your hopes up on this rumor until there’s some concrete information.
