2. Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster By Firas_supercar


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

As a further highlight of its 50th anniversary year, Automobili Lamborghini is presenting one of the most exceptional super sports cars of all time. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is an open racing prototype with an extreme design and breathtaking performance. And it is one of the world’s most exclusive automobiles – not more than nine units has been built during the course of 2014 and sold at a price of 3.3 million Euros.


The LEGO version:

So as you can see from this little introduction, this car is rare and unique in almost every aspect, and for sure, a LEGO version of it would be unique as well.


Ever since I saw this great car back in 2014, I wanted to build my own LEGO® version, but when i first saw it, I thought it was nearly impossible to replicate into LEGO form, but I’m glad I could prove myself wrong, and learned a good lesson: never say never, nothing is impossible with LEGO!


This model features a large amount of details and functional elements, including the opening Lambo style doors, detailed engine bay, detailed exterior and interior down to the three Italian flag bottoms inside the cockpit.


My point of view:

My vision about this model, that it would make a great set, specially since The LEGO Group have already present a stunning Lamborghini Gallardo sets in two forms, several years ago, the yellow convertible version and the police version, the two sets were a big success in my opinion, and I think the big brother Veneno would look beautiful beside them.


Whether you are an adult or a teenager, whether you’re into LEGO or not, I think this LEGO Veneno will find a way to enter your heart, as it will interest both LEGO® fans from all ages and car enthusiasts all around the world.


Me and Lamborghini:

Lamborghini is my favorite car, I think it’s a real car with a real engine for real men, even though I would not be able to own one someday, I still, and always will love this automotive.


As many from the LEGO community already know, you can easily see my relationship with Lamborghini through my creations, I’ve built a lot of Lamborghini cars through my journey with LEGO, from the Gallardo to the Aventador till the Super-exotic Veneno, I haven’t presented any of my models to LEGO ideas, this is my first project that in my opinion deserves to be here.

3. LEGO Observatory – Mountain View

LEGO Observatory - Mountain View By ThomasW


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

Just because I love the Stars and you like my NASA Lunar Rover and also my first Lego Observatory I spend the last two month with my new Observatory.


I created a complete new design including a new slide for the dome.


The Observatory would have one telescope within the dome and one very small one on the viewing platform.


The dome would be openable and turnable.


The building would be also openable.

4. Lovelace & Babbage

Lovelace & Babbage By Stubot


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

Analytical Engine:

Ada Lovelace (1815-1852) is widely credited as the first computer scientist and Charles Babbage (1791-1871) is best remembered for originating the concept of a programmable computer. Together they collaborated on Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. Whilst never fully built in their lifetime, Lovelace’s notes on the engine include what is recognised as the first algorithm intended to be carried out by a machine. Because of this, she is often regarded as the first computer programmer.


December 10th 2015 marks the 200th anniversary of Ada’s birth. This project would be a fitting commemoration for her bicentenary and hopefully inspire a whole new generation of computer programmers.


Unique Design:

The monochromatic brick palette helps to evoke a Victorian atmosphere and the engine itself is decorated with cogs, chains and pistons for a steampunk aesthetic. There is also capacity for the model to house a mini-computer such as the Raspberry Pi v2.0 single-board computer (optional and not included).


Just in case the Lovelace and Babbage minifigures get a little tired from all their hard work, there is an afternoon tea party for them to enjoy (Victoria sponge included).


Help Ada Junior with her maths homework in the miniature classroom, but just make sure the creepy bat doesn’t steal her beloved teddy bear.


Using LEGO we can finally complete their marvellous vision for the Analytical Engine and build the world’s first mechanical general-purpose computer!

5. Merchant’s House

Merchant's House By BigBoy99899


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

After getting Privilege from His Majesty of the King for obedient and honest service, the Merchant has built his own Boarding House. Sorely tired Travellers and Knights came there to rest and spend their precious gold coins for merchandise and well-forged weapons. Of course, from that yield of gold His Majesty withhold some tax also.


In this build i had the challenge with the roof. Various build techniques used for the walls. Every corner has its fine details, please look around. It was a huge fun to build this medieval theme.


Every brick connected with common bindings, stable and playable.

6. Modular Construction Site

Modular Construction Site By RyanTaggart


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

Lets put those collectable mini figures to work. Builders, Carpenters, Plumbers…


This is my third modular MOC, but the first I have submitted to Ideas. My aim was to raise the standard of build by analysing the strengths and weaknesses of the two I’d done before. I also aimed to increase playability and focus more on what the average Lego user 10-14yrs wants from a set like this. On top of this I wanted to keep in mind cost implications and whilst I was being more ambitious with the size of the build compared to my first two I wanted to set a ‘brick count’ and achieve the build within a target of 4200. Less than Tower Bridge 10214-1. The Final brick count was 4174.


I have designed within one of the strongest CORE themes within the LEGO world – Construction Sets, and avoided using material that would be subject to copyright / intellectual property.


It is fully ‘cafe corner compatible’. The building yard can attach either side of the main building. The top floor ‘under construction’ can be removed to reveal the interior which will then hinge open to allow play inside. The crane is an update and redesign of 7905-1 and is fully functional.


The mini figures included are: crane driver, financier, architect, bricklayer, two glaziers, a painter, a tiler, and two labourers. There is a good mix of male and female figures with women occupying main roles (Architect & Crane driver) Plenty of room to bring in your Collectible mini figure Carpenter from series 13 and Plumber from series 9. On the top is the Welder from series 11.


I’ve tried to make it a challenging interesting build with plenty of S.N.O.T. (studs not on top) building on the buildings facade. There are lots of Lego Technic elements integral to the structure and the 1st floor stairwell is supported by Bionicle elements.


LEGO sets should be played with in combination with other sets. The older ‘town’ sets embraced this much more than today with interconnecting baseplates and features that crossover. I wanted to feature a ‘portaloo’ and used the one featured in 60073-1 Service truck to encourage set integration and play. This Base plate / Connectivity is what people are enjoying about the CREATOR Modular Series.


I’ve tried to design and build with the following quote in mind; Parisian Café (2014): “It is one of the first Modular Buildings to really evolve the concept to a new level of storytelling and detailing.” – Jamie Berard, LEGO Design Manager Specialist.

7. Plum Creek – The Little House on the Prairie

Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie By SeigneurFett


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

Laura Ingalls’ story became a TV show in 1974 : The Little House on the Prairie. The Ingalls left Wisconsin to settle in Kansas. But after some months spent in Kansas, they moved to Walnut Grove, Minnesota. The TV show tells the life of this pioneer family in Plum Creek, near Walnut Grove.


I wanted to build the farm of the Ingalls as we can see it in the show for a long time. Now I’ve done it ^^


I tried to do the house and the barn as close to the real ones as I could with Lego bricks. I’m quite pleased of the result 🙂 I think that the most difficult in this creation was to find how to do the walls of the house.


I believe that this Ingalls house could be a good Lego set. But actually, I think that the creation as I present it to you could not be a Lego set, because it is too big. If the project get 10 000 supports (I hope so 🙂 ), I think that a set with just the house, the cart and the minifigs (around 1 500 pieces) would be perfect. Five minifigures could be included : Charles, Caroline, Mary, Laura and Carrie, and also the dog, Jack!


You can easily remove the roof to access to the interior of the house, and play again the famous scenes of the show! The playability is guaranteed!

8. Spaceballs – Eagle 5

Spaceballs - Eagle 5 By NvdK


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

You are looking at Captain Lone Starr’s spaceship the ‘Eagke 5’ and yes; it’s a Winnebago with wings! The space ship is used to save prinsess Vespa from the evil President Skroob and Dark Helmet.


In 1986, comedy director, writer and actor Mel Brooks came with the science fiction parody film: Spaceballs. In 2016 it will be the 30th anniversary of Spaceballs! So let’s make it a good one with a Spaceball Lego set! Yogurt would say: “Merchandising, merchandising, where the real money from the movie is made. Spaceballs-the T-shirt, Spaceballs-the Coloring Book, Spaceballs-the Lunch box, Spaceballs-the Breakfast Cereal, Spaceballs-the Flame Thrower.” And now possibly a Spaceballs-the Lego set!


The Set will include the ‘Eagle 5’ and Captain Lone Starr with his Schwartz-saber. Also included are the secret hyper jets in the rear of the ‘Eagle 5’! (No one will expect a Winnebago having secret hyper jet, not even Dark helmet). The Eagle 5 ‘Hero for Hire’ logo will come as a printed piece with the set.

9. Star Wars UCS X34 Landspeeder

Star Wars UCS X34 Landspeeder By Psyence


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

I’ve always wanted a hovercraft or floating/flying car, who wouldn’t? Since we’ve seen numerous flying crafts in the Star Wars UCS line and a minimal showing of land vehicles, I’ve often thought about what Luke Skywalker’s X34 Landspeeder might look like if it were brand new off the assembly line from the Sorosuub Corporation (via Lego) in UCS scale. This is my “Idea” for a UCS x34 Landspeeder at 2798 pieces including the stand. It measures 22.5 inches in length, 15.5 inches wide and 14.5 inches high with the stand.


I reviewed pictures of Landspeeder toys, images on the web, watched snippets of “A New Hope”, and read over schematics on Star Wars wikis for vehicle statistics. In collaboration from those sources, what you see here is the final build. I went through 6 different revisions in LDD looking for something acceptable and fairly accurate in proportion. The stand is modeled after a combination of the Lego UCS 10175 and 10134 stands. Although different from the orange and brown of the original craft, I decided that Lego Dark Red and Brick Yellow/Tan would be best based on piece availability in specific colors.

10. The Large Hadron Collider

The Large Hadron Collider By NathanR2015


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, running for 27km in a circular tunnel beneath the French-Swiss border. It takes protons up to almost the speed of light and smashes them together in head-on collisions inside four enormous detectors named ATLAS, ALICE, CMS and LHCb. The collision debris can contain a whole host of rare and unstable particles that these detectors then record using multiple subsystems, and physicists can use the data gathered to learn more about the fundamental building blocks of our Universe.


ATLAS and CMS are the general-purpose particle detectors where the famous Higgs Boson was discovered. The two detectors are used to study known particles in greater detail than ever before, but also in searches for new particles and phenomena including supersymmetry and extra dimensions. LHCb was specially designed to investigate the subtle differences between matter and antimatter by studying the behaviour of particles containing “beauty” quarks, in an effort to understand why the Universe now contains only matter. Finally, the ALICE detector is used to study an exotic state of matter known as a quark-gluon plasma that existed when the Universe was around a millionth of a second old. By colliding lead nuclei accelerated to almost the speed of light, the LHC can recreate droplets of this primordial state of matter.


This is a stylised model of the LHC, showcasing all four of the detectors at a micro scale size. Each detector model is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but crammed with detailed internal systems revealed by cutaway walls – every major detector component is represented by a Lego piece. The models are not strictly in scale with each other, but use the same size base to maximise the detail that can be included and give a more uniform look to the set.


The colour schemes have been chosen to highlight each subsystem, but also to reflect the colours seen on official diagrams and on the real detectors themselves. A central 1×3 black tile on each model’s display base could also be printed with the name of the detector, following the style of the Lego Architecture series.


The real LHC uses thousands of powerful superconducting magnets to steer the protons around the ring, accelerate them, and squeeze them together into narrow beams. However, the accelerator is so vast that an accurate model in scale with the detector miniatures is too big to be practical. This set therefore uses four identical models of the LHC’s magnets to allow the assembly of a representative accelerator ring, providing a flavour of the LHC while keeping the set at a manageable and affordable size.


The instruction manuals for this set would ideally include some information about CERN, the real detectors and the physics they explore. This set could be a perfect science souvenir for people of all ages, providing a fun building experience together with an introduction to the fascinating and exciting world of particle physics.

11. Voltron – Defender of the Universe

Voltron – Defender of the Universe By Len_D69


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

This is one of the popular super robots in the 80’s. Based on the Japanese Anime “Beast King GoLion”, it is made up of 5 robotic lions that combines to form Voltron.


The Set:

A childhood favorite, I tried to recreate Voltron as faithfully as I could in both lion and combined form. Adding in details to make it look as close as possible to its Anime version.


There are basically five separate lions in the set, each having their own unique articulation. They can be played with individually or as one big robot.


1) Black Lion – Forms the head and the body

2) Red and Green Lions – Form the arms

3) Blue and Yellow Lions – Form the legs


When combined, they form Voltron which stands around 16 inches in height and weighs close to 1kg.

12. Women of NASA

Women of NASA By 20tauri


Description (From The LEGO Ideas Website):

Ladies rock outer space!


Women have played critical roles throughout the history of the U.S. space program, a.k.a. NASA or the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Yet in many cases, their contributions are unknown or under-appreciated — especially as women have historically struggled to gain acceptance in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).


This proposed set celebrates five notable NASA pioneers and provides an educational building experience to help young ones and adults alike learn about the history of women in STEM. The five Women of NASA are:


Margaret Hamilton, computer scientist: While working at MIT under contract with NASA in the 1960s, Hamilton developed the on-board flight software for the Apollo missions to the moon. She is known for popularizing the modern concept of software.


Katherine Johnson, mathematician and space scientist: A longtime NASA researcher, Johnson is best known for calculating and verifying trajectories for the Mercury and Apollo programs — including the Apollo 11 mission that first landed humans on the moon.


Sally Ride, astronaut, physicist, and educator: A physicist by training, Ride became the first American woman in space in 1983. After retiring as a NASA astronaut, she founded an educational company focusing on encouraging children — especially girls — to pursue the sciences.


Nancy Grace Roman, astronomer: One of the first female executives at NASA, Roman is known to many as the “Mother of Hubble” for her role in planning the Hubble Space Telescope. She also developed NASA’s astronomy research program.


Mae Jemison, astronaut, physician, and entrepreneur: Trained as a medical doctor, Jemison became the first African-American woman in space in 1992. After retiring from NASA, Jemison established a company that develops new technologies and encourages students in the sciences.


In addition to a desktop frame that displays these five minifigures and their names, the set includes vignettes depicting: a famous photo of the reams of code that landed astronauts on the moon in 1969; instruments used to calculate and verify trajectories for the Mercury and Apollo missions; a microscale Hubble Space Telescope and display; and a mini space shuttle, complete with external tank and solid rocket boosters.
