The next Lego set to be ready to go into public testing in the US will be the one for the military, a company official has confirmed.
It is a set of the iconic military Lego series, which has been a staple in the world’s toy markets for more than a century.
The set, which is due to go on sale in the spring, will be called “the LEGO Army”.
The set is being developed by Lego’s US partner and partner in the deal, the US military.
The new set will replace the Army set, announced last year, which was meant to be the last piece of the Army’s iconic set.
It is expected that the Army will be one of the first set of Lego products to go through public testing, with a final design and assembly of the sets expected in 2018.
Lego also announced plans to open a manufacturing facility in the United States to support its military projects.
It said it would also build a new manufacturing facility at its headquarters in California to make military-themed toys.
“We will be bringing our best product line to the market, including the LEGO Army, to meet the needs of our customers, and the global market, for military-branded products,” Lego said in a statement.
“The new LEGO Army will allow us to continue our strong relationship with our customers as we build our strategy around expanding our supply chain and our manufacturing facilities in the States and around the world.”
Lego has struggled to grow in the last few years, falling from a share price of $890m in 2016 to $6.5bn today.
