There’s some interesting news coming out of the Brickset Forums yesterday. A user by the name of iso3200 who first talked about the upcoming LEGO Creator Detective’s Office (10246) modular building back in June is back with more rumors for 2015.
First up is a follow-up set to the LEGO Creator Fairground Mixer (10244) which would be a Ferris Wheel type set. This set could be added next to the Fairground Mixer to create a carnival type setting. They also speculate that it could easily attach a motor to it much like the Mixer.
The second rumor for 2015 is a brand new theme. Iso3200 states that it will “be loosely a follow-up/replacement/similar to Monster Fighters.” They also says it will have a retro feel and very kid friendly and “not very zombie.”
Some people are speculating that it could be a Ghostbusters theme while others are thinking it could be a Scooby-Doo theme considering that both are retro. I believe Character Building has the licence for Scooby-Doo minifigures and was extended in 2012. I’m not sure if the license has expired yet or will be expiring much like what happened with Doctor Who.
The Ghostbusters reboot movie has been pretty much green-lighted and will probably start filming early next year. Plus LEGO has already released a Ghostbusters set with Ecto-1 (21108) so it might be easier to bring more sets in.
All the rumors above seem fairly vague and I’m guessing they could be released next summer. As with all LEGO rumors, take them with a grain of salt but the user seems pretty confident in reporting it and was correct on the Detective’s Office modular. What are your thoughts on these 2015 sets?
