I think this is going to be announced today at Brickcon. No one seems to want either deny or confirm this, but the keynote is still a few hours away, so we'll see. But I got an email today from LEGO Shop@Hame regarding a Shop@Exclusive for 2012: 10223 Kingdoms Joust. Quick stats: US $119.99 / CA $149.99 / DE 119.99 € / UK 99.99 £ / DK 1099.00 DKK / AU 199.99 AUD; 1,575 pieces; available starting January 2012 directly through LEGO Shop@Home and LEGO Brand Retail. A ton of pictures below followed by the official press release. A bit of letdown, but that might be because I'm in a rush. I'll post my initial impressions after the keynote.
