For a little while now there have been rumors of an official Lego Scooby Doo theme for 2015. It certainly is not the most demanded theme, but Lego is trying its best to win over all our hearts. Everything is being timed for maximum exposure, with a new Scooby Doo TV show titled “Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!” premiering on Cartoon Network soon. The first official images from Lego are starting to be released. The most popular set will probably be the Mystery Machine (75902) which will retail at $29.99. This set features Shaggy, Scooby Doo, and Fred fighting off a zombie and evil tree. Scooby Doo is looking especially impressive, with some fine printing that puts most of the other Lego dogs to shame.
The current line up features 5 sets covering a good amount of the show: Mummy Museum Mystery (75900), Mystery Plane Adventures (75901), Mystery Machine (75902), Haunted Lighthouse (75903), and Mystery Mansion (75904). The whole gang will be represented in Minifigure form. Fred, Shaggy, Scooby-Doo, Daphne, and Velma. Hopefully we won’t need to purchase the whole theme to complete the team.
Interestingly, there will be a special Lego episode, probably animated as a 3D CGI cartoon…
“In another first, the Scooby Gang will be animated in LEGO form. In 2015, fans can look forward to a 22-minute LEGO special, featuring Scooby-Doo, and produced in partnership with Warner Bros. Animation. In addition, Warner Bros. Animation will also be producing made-for-video movie titles, which will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in the coming years.”
Lego has also been teasing Lego Scooby Doo across its social media this week:
