A Celestial Observatory

The centerpiece of this set is a meticulously designed research room, complete with a buildable telescope that reflects Galileo’s pioneering work in astronomy. As you explore the room, you’ll also discover a rotating heliocentric model, a table, a chest of drawers, and even ‘stone’ experiments. These elements transport you back in time to Galileo’s world of discovery and innovation.

Mapping the Universe

In keeping with Galileo’s legacy, this LEGO Ideas set includes a detailed map of Earth printed on a minifigure head, reminding us of his groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of the cosmos. The clever inclusion of this map adds depth and historical context to the set.

Hometown Tribute

An enchanting addition to this set is a miniature representation of the tower in Galileo’s hometown of Pisa. This symbolic piece serves as a reminder of the great astronomer’s roots and his profound impact on the world.

Completing the Scene

To complete this remarkable tribute, you can attach the nameplate, which proudly displays the set’s name, and place the Galileo Galilei Minifigure in the scene. This final touch brings the entire composition to life, making it a delightful centerpiece for LEGO enthusiasts and history aficionados alike.

LEGO Ideas Tribute to Galileo Galilei: Availability

The LEGO Ideas Tribute to Galileo Galilei (40595) comprises 307 pieces, resulting in a vignette that stands over 3.5 inches (9 cm) high, 7.5 inches (19 cm) wide, and 4 inches (10 cm) deep. This level of detail and craftsmanship is a testament to the dedication of LEGO designers in creating a faithful representation of Galileo’s world.

As for availability, this GWP offer is set to launch on November 1st, 2023, and will be available until November 16, 2023, or as long as stocks last. To qualify for this exclusive set, you’ll need to make a LEGO purchase totaling $130 and above.

Unveiling the 2,500-Piece LEGO Ideas The Orient Express Train – Arriving in December!

Editors Note: This post has been updated to reflect the release date of the LEGO Ideas the Orient Express 21344 to be December 1 instead of November, as confirmed by LEGO.  

It looks like LEGO still has a lot of things in store as we approach the end of the year. And in case you missed it, we can now have a sneak peek of the highly anticipated LEGO Ideas The Orient Express 21344 which is slated to arrive this December, consisting of more than 2,500 pieces.

The LEGO Ideas The Orient Express and the Road to 10K 

lego ideas the orient express

If you recall back in March of 2021, LEGO fan builder Thomas Lajon (aka LEt’sGO over at the LEGO Ideas platform) managed to get the support of the LEGO community when his original creation, The Orient Express, A Legendary Train, hit the 10K support milestone. Consequently, it earned its top spot at the LEGO Ideas First 2022 Review Stage and went on to be one of the next LEGO Ideas 2023 sets to watch out for by the year’s end.

Thanks to LEGO’s official catalog, we’re now granted an early preview of the much-anticipated set. This stunning brick-built train set boasts an impressive 2,540 pieces, promising a fulfilling building experience for LEGO aficionados.

lego ideas the orient express

Do take note that as of this posting though, it seems that LEGO backtracked on their supposed reveal and has decided to update the said digital catalog, removing the page dedicated to the reveal of the LEGO Ideas The Orient Express. As such, LEGO.com is yet to list the LEGO Ideas The Orient Express, but we can expect an official reveal anytime soon.

A Remarkable Transformation

LEGO Ideas projects often undergo significant transformations from their initial concepts to the final products available in stores. The LEGO Ideas Orient Express is a prime example of this evolution. The version set to launch this fall differs substantially from the original Ideas campaign model, embracing a more whimsical approach while retaining a touch of its old-school charm.

lego ideas the orient express 04

A Palette of Change

Another notable change is its color scheme. The initial fan-submitted model by Thomas Lajon featured a green engine design, while the rear passenger car was dark blue. In the final product design, the LEGO Ideas Design Team opted for an all-encompassing dark blue theme. This modification brings a new level of coherence to the model, enhancing its overall aesthetic appeal.

lego ideas the orient express 02

All Aboard!

Another exciting alteration is the addition of an extra passenger car to the engine. The original model included only one passenger car, but the LEGO Ideas Design Team decided that more was merrier. Consequently, the set now includes a total of eight minifigures, ensuring ample interior space for creative play.

LEGO Ideas The Orient Express – Availability and Release Date

Be sure to mark December 1 on your calendar because that’s when the LEGO Ideas The Orient Express train will officially be available. Expected to retail for $300, this lovely set comes complete with a track display stand, making it an ideal choice for display enthusiasts. While it lacks motorized functionality, it remains fully compatible with existing LEGO train setups. Let’s hope LEGO will also offer some Power Functions to this set later on after its official reveal.

The official unveiling of this remarkable creation is just around the corner. LEGO traditionally reserves major reveals for Tuesdays or Thursdays. So, stay tuned as we await the release of its official product description and high-res images.

The LEGO Ideas The Orient Express Train, with its 2,500 pieces and unique design, promises to be a standout addition to any LEGO collection. It’s a long overdue set, especially for LEGO Train enthusiasts.

Be sure not to miss out on its official launch on December 1, and keep an eye out for more details in the coming days only here at The Brick Show.

LEGO Ideas Disney Magic Set Coming Soon!

Here’s another LEGO set to watch out for – the Disney-inspired LEGO Ideas Disney Magic set. 

If you happened to miss it, the LEGO Ideas platform hosted a thrilling building challenge back in May this year. The challenge beckoned members to cast their votes for the most captivating Disney-inspired MOCs (My Own Creations), including enchanting dioramas and meticulously crafted brick-built characters. All of this is to commemorate Disney’s incredible century of enchanting fairy tales. Now, following the collective tally of votes in July, it seems we’re in for a treat with the forthcoming official LEGO release – the LEGO Ideas Disney Magic set, slated to be released soon.

The LEGO Ideas Disney Magic is the Next LEGO Set to Watch Out For

The grand prize was awarded to the phenomenal creation, the LEGO Ideas Disney Magic, masterfully conceived by fan builder 2A2A. This creation offers us a glimpse into what the final LEGO set might look like once it graces the market.

lego ideas disney magic
LEGO fan builder 2A2A’s version of the unofficial LEGO Ideas Disney Magic.

Within this enchanting set, you’ll find a Sorcerer Mickey from the classic Fantasia film, meticulously built using LEGO bricks. Surrounding him, an array of minifigure versions pay homage to the iconic Disney characters that have been an integral part of our childhood:

1. Belle from Beauty and the Beast

2. Ariel, Flounder, and Sebastian from The Little Mermaid

3. Pride Rock from The Lion King

4. Sultan’s palace and the flying Carpet from Aladdin

5. Pumpkin coach from Cinderella

6. Stitch riding the wave from Lilo and Stitch

7. Elsa from Frozen showcasing her ice magic

8. Pinocchio and the wooden raft from the chase with the whale Monstro

As mentioned by 2A2A, selecting a single Disney classic story that captures a century of Disney magic posed quite a challenge. The hope is that this soon-to-be LEGO Ideas set can effectively convey the plethora of timeless classics that have graced the world over the years. Ultimately, it aims to offer a truly magical tableau, one that will captivate the hearts of both Disney aficionados and dedicated LEGO fans alike.

Availability and Release Date of the LEGO Ideas Disney Magic

It’s also worth celebrating the remarkable achievements of the other runner-up winners in the Fan Vote. Their contributions were outstanding and deserve hearty congratulations for a job well done. A huge congratulations to ChaMi for the runner-up entry, Just a Little Bit of Pixie Dust, and Fantasia (1940) – The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by BrickStability

Explore the Details of the LEGO Ideas Viking Village 21343 – Now Available for Pre-Order!

If you’re a LEGO enthusiast, you won’t want to miss the exciting news from last week. LEGO has unveiled its latest masterpiece, the LEGO Ideas Viking Village 21343 set, consisting of a remarkable 2,103 pieces.

lego ideas viking village

This captivating creation originated from the imaginative mind of German LEGO Ideas fan designer Florian (aka BrickHammer over at the LEGO Ideas fan community)  back in 2020. Florian’s determination and passion for this project led him to resubmit the LEGO Ideas Viking Village in 2022, even though it was not approved on two prior occasions.

But even more fascinating is the story behind this design and how it eventually made its way into production. In 2022, through a collaboration with the US retail giant Target, the LEGO Ideas Design Team delved into their vault of 10K Club submissions that had previously missed the mark. They then presented three exceptional creations to the LEGO community for a fan vote, where the winning design would become a reality. The LEGO Ideas Viking Village emerged as the clear favorite, garnering an impressive 16,000 votes to secure its path to production.

Let’s dive into the inspiration behind this extraordinary brick design. Florian reveals that while the LEGO Ideas Viking Village doesn’t aim for historical accuracy. However, the inspiration behind this set was first born in his history studies at the university. His interests focused more on the Norman conquest of 1066 and its impact on Anglo-Saxon society. As he immersed himself in books about Norman culture and its Danish Viking origins, a spark of creative inspiration led to the birth of this stunning LEGO Ideas Viking Village masterpiece.

As a fan favorite, Florian’s remarkable concept was brought to life as an official LEGO Ideas set thanks to the collaborative efforts of LEGO Design Manager Isaac Snyder and Graphic Designer Johanna Wurm Jensen.

Now, the eagerly anticipated LEGO Ideas Viking Village 21343 is available for pre-order at $129.99, with a release date of October 1st. Below, let’s explore some of its remarkable features.
