Late last night, we reported on a new rumored “spooky” retro theme that would be potentially coming out in 2015. One of the guesses that people thought of was Scooby-Doo. What we know so far is that Character Building had the license to produce figures based on the TV show but it may have expired or will be expiring and LEGO picked it up much like what happened with Doctor Who.
There has now been an update and it looks like there will indeed be a LEGO Scooby-Doo theme next year. According to the comments over on Hoth Bricks, a user by the name of Miniworld knows someone who has seen some of the Scooby-Doo sets at a showroom in France and was able to give some descriptions.
First, they are scheduled for release around May/June 2015. There will be four sets in total including the famous Mystery Van which has minifigures of Fred, Shaggy, and Scooby-Doo. The next set is a Haunted House that includes Shaggy, Scooby, Daphne, and Velma. There were also two other sets but there aren’t any descriptions. However, they mention that there was a Swamp Monster in one of these sets.
This new report collaborates what Iso3200 said a few days ago over on the Brickset Forums. Also, note that Warner Bros. will be releasing a new TV show called Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! and will be shown on Cartoon Network, which both companies are also partners of The LEGO Group, so these sets could be based on that. Given this report, what do you guys think of having a LEGO Scooby-Doo theme in 2015?
