Which One’s Your Pick Among the 7?

A total of 7 builds by AFOLs submitted to the LEGO Ideas website have gotten 10,000 support votes and therefore will be considered by the LEGO Ideas review team to be turned into official LEGO sets – what’s interesting to note is that, out of the 7, 3 of them are by AFOL RobenAnne!


Which One's Your Pick Among the 7?


Now, assuming if you’re part of the review team, and if you’re only allowed to choose one, what’s your pick and why?


In case you’re wondering what our choice will be, if we have to pick one build out of the 7, our choice will be twrt0es’ LEGO Christmas Story House – and we’d certainly like to see it release just in time for the holiday season at the end of the year – as we felt that the current winter sets are getting “stale” (and many community members feel likewise also) and we foresee a set like this will really freshen things up! Do you agree with us on that? ?


Check out details of all the 7 builds below:


P.S.: The results (as to which set/s will be produced as official LEGO Ideas set/s) will be released during the summer. Rest assured we’ll keep you updated as soon as we have them so stay tuned!


1. Pop-Up Book by JKBrickworks

Which One's Your Pick Among the 7? - Pop-Up Book by JKBrickworks


Description (from the LEGO Ideas Website):

The book features a simple and reliable mechanism that pops up a structure when the book opens, and pulls it back in when the book closes. The main scene and surrounding details can be completely customized to tell any story you can imagine, – a cottage in the woods, jungle ruins, medieval castle, wild west building, space station, pirate ship – the possibilities are endless.

There is also room to store Minifigs and other accessories inside the book, and it features a locking clasp to keep everything securely inside when it is closed.

We suggest the set include enough pieces to build at least two core scenes and include anywhere from 3 to 5 Minifigs. A selection of extra Minifig parts could also be included so the actors can be outfitted for different roles, making them more suited to tell a variety of stories.

This is a collaborative project created by Grant Davis (Grant_Davis_) and Jason Allemann (JKBrickworks).

3. The Lighthouse by RobenAnne

Which One's Your Pick Among the 7? - The Lighthouse by RobenAnne


Description (from the LEGO Ideas Website):

A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses, and to serve as a navigational aid for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways.


Lighthouses mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs, and safe entries to harbors, and can assist in aerial navigation. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses has declined due to the expense of maintenance and use of electronic navigational systems.


On a clear day you can see forever.. How often can you see a light house? Popular with tourists, get in early and enjoy the ambiance.. A short walk from the Lighthouse there is an Old Fishing Store down the road, which has bait and tackle. Or go around the lighthouse and enjoy a magnificent view. The Lighthouse is under some construction and is also getting painted.


The following is a list of the Lighthouse items:

Minifig: Carpenter, Fisherman, Painters and Lighthouse manager.

Sealife: Crabs, Starfish, Sea grass, Seagull, and more

Boat: Rowing boat


The building consists of roughly 2380 parts and a boat, office, bedroom, kitchen, deck with a porch and outhouse, light room, storage room between the cliff. I used the colors sand blue and white glow, reddish brown for the building that gives it a realistic feeling. The roofs I used the color dark stone grey and reddish brown. The roof just sits on a couple of studs so it’s easy to take of and put on.

4. Jaguar E-Type Roadster by Ozzyeatingbats

Which One's Your Pick Among the 7? - Jaguar E-Type Roadster by Ozzyeatingbats


Description (from the LEGO Ideas Website):

I’m glad to introduce one of the most significant vehicles of the 20th century – the JAGUAR E-Type Roadster 2 series!


Considered one of the most beautiful and stylish cars in the world.


I would like to emphasize the following features:

– in-line 6-cylinder engine

– terrible suspension (coming soon)

– elegance of forms vs. the angularity of LEGO


The total amount of bricks is ca. 1664. The scale is about 1:10, 20 studs wide and 54 long.


I hope that I’ve managed to deliver this idea with the help of LEGO.


Thanks for your attention!

Which One's Your Pick Among the 7? - The LEGO Christmas Story House by twrt0es


Description (from the LEGO Ideas Website):

The LEGO Christmas Story House is the perfect marriage of a decorative conversation piece, holiday collector’s item, and modular LEGO play set. It will appeal to Lego fans, movie fans, and holiday fans alike. You can take it out each year with your Christmas village or display it year round. As a modular set, it is a fully functional toy for children from 1 to 92… Okay, there are some small pieces in there, so let’s say… 4 to 92.


Note that this set also includes a brick that will light up the leg lamp! Turn it on, and it will glow side by side with your other Christmas village pieces.


Along with the house itself, the set includes the complete Parker minifigure family with one bonus Randy, two bonus Ralphies, and the Bumpus Hounds!

– The Old Man Parker (complete with smile and surprised faces)

– Mother Parker (complete with smile and worried faces)

– Randy

– Ralphie

– BONUS: “Can’t Put My Arms Down” Randy

– BONUS: “Cowboy” Ralphie

– BONUS: “Pink Nightmare” Ralphie

The LEGO Christmas Story House also features many other subtle details in each room including these highlights:

Front Room

– Desk (for hiding the present)

– The radio

– The Little Orphan Annie decoder pin (a crummy commercial?)

Watch the movie again and see if you can find all of the Christmas presents included in this set:

The actual house used in the movie, A Christmas Story, is located in Cleveland, Ohio and is currently run as a museum (worth a visit). However, most of the indoor scenes were shot in a studio, so this set combines the layout of the “real” house with the footage from the movie, within the scale of the LEGO world.
