Lego announces 90-minute Lego Con livestream


Lego will hold its first ever announcement livestream, Lego Con, on 26th June at 5pm UK time.

Expect Lego set reveals for video game franchises such as Minecraft and Super Mario, as well as other top-selling ranges like Harry Potter, Technic, Star Wars and Dots.

We already know Lego Super Luigi will launch on 1st August, so we're likely to see what's next for the range - and presumably the next vast wave of accompanying bits and pieces due alongside Mario's brother. Birdo please.

Lego video game fans have been waiting a long, long time to hear more on the promising-looking but continually-delayed Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga - though it sounds like we may finally see it again during the stream.

A trailer for Lego Con promises exclusive set reveals, special guests, live builds, Q&As with Lego designers and "secrets from inside Lego HQ".

When asked if Skywalker Saga would be shown at Lego Con, Lego's Twitter account responded: "...Stay tuned for secrets from inside LEGO HQ soon! :)"
