Lego and Rovio have officially announced that Angry Birds will be a new Lego theme next year. Personally, I can’t say that I’m truly excited with it, definitely it’s not my concepts in term of Lego, but I’ve no doubts that it will be a success among the fans.
The theme is expected to hit stores in 2016 spring and will certainly bring all the fun and playability that is widely recognized in the popular video Game. There is no word for now about a potential set list or even some additional details.Have a look on Rovio and Lego announcements published on ToyWorld Mag:
