This end of the month marks the release of our latest LEGO Ideas set, and it looks like LEGO is throwing in a nice promotional to go along with it. Images of the LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) display case promotional has been shared online by Instagram user dylanchow, though it may have a limited run, particularly to LEGO fans in China.
The said display case promotional is included in the packaging of the set and features a 3D museum cutout where you can display the brick-built dinosaur fossils. From the way it looks, it feels kind of relatively spacious actually considering the size of these builds and how the display case manages to fit all of them together.
This is not the first time for LEGO to offer such a promotional display. If you recall back in 2018, LEGO also offered a gift-with-purchase set – the LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358) promotional – that features a minifigure vignette set on a cardboard backdrop. I guess most will agree that it is better to have a brick-built display case rather than a cardboard one, but since this is a freebie I have no complaints about it.
Though the LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) display case promotional might be a regional exclusive, I’m still hoping that this will be made available in all LEGO stores worldwide. We just have to wait and see. Thanks to The Brick Fan for the heads up.
I think LEGO is a bit of a torturous with this one. In spite of being on out-of-stock status for a few days now, LEGO has released a designer video to celebrate the release of the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319). Don’t get me wrong – I appreciate these LEGO designer vids, but I will love it more if the set is back in stock. Anyways, LEGO Designer Milan Madge and graphics designer Crystal Marie Fontan share their thoughts on the creative process that went through in transforming this LEGO Ideas set into a reality. Watch this.
It has been more than a month since the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) set has been released, and you may have already heard a lot of reviews on this set since then. However, I do appreciate LEGO’s designer video about this set since they give us an inside look at the clever easter eggs and the neat attention to detail that the designers have thrown in. I like how they ensured that the minifigures in this set will be faithful to how the sitcom’s lead characters look like especially during the first season of the show. Some small details in this set also answer some of the questions that fans of the FRIENDS sitcom have been asking for a very long time. Such as the reason why the gang always ends up having the iconic orange couch in the middle of the cafe. Well, it seems that the answer is a simple, straightforward ‘Reserved’ sign that never leaves their table from the start.
We don’t have an inkling on when the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) will be back in stock in LEGO brand stores and online, but be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home every now and then for updates.

For those who are eagerly waiting for the release of the next LEGO Ideas set in the form of the LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320), you may want to check out this latest LEGO Designer Video before you head out in your local LEGO Store on November 1st. Watch as LEGO Designer Niels Pedersen, and Design Manager Sam Johnson share their thoughts on how this upcoming LEGO Ideas set was brought to life straight from the prehistoric age.
Though the finished product is obviously different from the original LEGO Ideas project submitted by Jonathan Brunn (aka Mukkin over at the LEGO Ideas platform), the final set design by Pedersen retains the Triceratops build and adds T.rex and Pteranodon skeletons. No particular reason was mentioned in the video why LEGO opted for such a noticeable revision. Nevertheless, the way it turned out is still quite impressive. Another noteworthy feature of this set is the fact that it comes at a minifigure scale. Adding a paleontologist minifigure also adds a certain degree of scale for these builds, giving it a sort of a Night at the Museum vibe.
According to Pedersen, one of the challenges of creating this set is how to make their skeletons sturdy enough to hold the weight of their brick-built skulls. This is evident especially in the case of the T.rex fossil build. However, the issue was eventually worked out and we have another LEGO set worthy of being an excellent display piece.
The LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) comes in at 910 pieces and will retail for $59.99 USD once it hit store shelves on November 1. Be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home, or your local LEGO brand store at the end of this month to get your copy of this set.

After a series of teasers on social media, LEGO has finally unveiled its next LEGO Ideas set slated to be on store shelves this November. The LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) is the brainchild of LEGO fan builder Jonathan Brunn (aka Mukkin) when his creation was given the thumbs up by the LEGO Ideas design team during the LEGO Ideas Third 2018 Review Stage.
This display-worthy set comes in at 910 pieces and features three main fossil builds of a T.rex, pteranodon, and triceratops. It’s a kind of a deviation from Jonathan’s original creation, with the T.rex and pteranodon not included from the original project. However, the final result is still commendable. The LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) set will be available at all LEGO stores both in-store and online starting November 1st. Read on for the set’s full product description and let me know your thoughts about this new LEGO Ideas set.

LEGO gave a bit of a teaser on its social media channels earlier today announcing the imminent arrival of our next LEGO Ideas set. The LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) set is posed to be revealed any time soon, with an expected arrival this November.
If you recall, this original creation submitted by Jonathan Brunn (aka Mukkin from the LEGO Ideas platform) topped the rest of the five proposed projects during the LEGO Ideas Third 2018 Review Stage. Jonathan’s original design consisted of a collection of brick dino fossils of a triceratops, stegosaurus, dilophosaurus, brachiosaurus, and a plesiosaurus. However, as any LEGO ideas set, the LEGO Ideas design team may eventually introduce some modifications which the teaser may have already suggested. It is also noticeable that the teaser featured the fossil remains of a T-rex which is not included in the original design. The color scheme seems to be prominently white in contrast to Jonathan’s original tan color design.
Whatever is the case, let’s hope that the LEGO Ideas design team has significantly improved on the set’s features or at the very least, will make the set more realistic since this kind of LEGO Ideas set is intended to be more like an excellent display piece similar to the LEGO Ideas Ship in a Bottle (21313) and the NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309) sets.
Information such as the piece count or retail price of the LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) is still scant, but I’m quite positive that all these details will be revealed anytime soon. We’ll keep you posted once new info is picked up by our radars so stay tuned.
Originally designed by Spanish audio-visual artist Pablo Jimenez (aka Bricky_Brick over at LEGO Ideas), the LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay is a modular set that every fan of the classic LEGO Pirates will surely want to have. It has been four years ago when LEGO released its last pirate-inspired sets since the theme’s inception way back in 1989. Undoubtedly, this is one of LEGO’s most beloved and successful original creations, and seeing the LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay finally becoming a reality as an official LEGO set seems to be long overdue. The best part of it is that the brick-built pirate fortress follows a modular design similar to the likes of the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310).
Pablo’s original design clocks in at somewhere between 2,550 to 2,650 pieces and includes seven (7) pirate minifigures. It also features four (4) interchangeable levels that highlight some of the things that a sea-loving pirate would love to do: having a hearty meal, manning the cannons, and planning their next adventure on the high seas.
The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay
Prepare the cannons sailors, you have to defend the bay!
Welcome to the impregnable pirate fortress, house of Red beard, many sailors fear these waters, the most dangerous pirates make their stop here. Be careful not to be locked in jail or possibly the only place you can be, as long as you do not find the secret exit.
There is a rumor, they say that there is a treasure map, it is believed that it is below the canteen, many of them are looking for the treasure but none of them have yet achieved it. Will you be able to find it?
It is time to return to the classics and what better than this super bastion built on shipwrecks, with traps like the pendular anchor that warns unexpected visitors and the dog and the monkey guardian. The food is delicious in our tavern, many pirates only stop to eat here. In this small pirate town we find a small farm with pigs and chickens, lobsters crabs and fish, also delight this area.
A Modular set that includes 7 minifigures and: 1 monkey, 1 scorpion, 3 crabs, 3 hens, two pigs, 3 parrots, a shark, and a dog.
The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay is tentatively scheduled for release some time next year, and with two other equally impressive LEGO Ideas sets that go along with it, 2020 is certainly a great year to be a LEGO Ideas fan. Again, our warmest congratulations to Pablo Jimenez and to all who made this next LEGO set possible.
Following the announcement of the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street as our next LEGO Ideas set, the First 2019 Review Results also included another set that eventually received the thumbs up from the LEGO Ideas Design Team. If you recall earlier in May this year, the LEGO Ideas Playable Piano project by Donny Chen (aka SleepyCow over at LEGO Ideas) required further review due to the intricate details and sheer complexity in building the project’s various moving parts and features. Now after four months of waiting, I’m glad that this LEGO Ideas project finally got the green light in becoming an official LEGO set.
The LEGO Ideas Playable Piano is clearly a work of passion for Donny. Being a piano teacher himself, he designed the Playable Piano with expert knowledge on its various moving parts and complex internal mechanism. The attention to detail that Donny devoted to this set is impressive in itself. The original design is made up of 2,798 LEGO pieces that recreate a working grand piano. Here’s a brief description of this set, followed by a brief video that shows us some of the play features on this upcoming set.
The Concert Grand Piano, one of the most complex instruments of all time, is now in Lego form.
Built entirely from 2798 authentic LEGO bricks, it accurately captures the mechanical details of a real piano, featuring:
Removable keyboard with 25 independent working keys, each key connects to its own hammer.
Working damper and pedal function.
Realistic piano lid which can be open either half stick of full stick.
Realistic fallboard with a soft close.
Removable music stand.
Height adjustable piano bench.
Self-playing function enabled by adding PowerFunction, which allows keys to play at different tempos and rhythms.
Realistic piano wheels.
The LEGO Ideas Playable Piano is set to be released sometime next year, with the LEGO Ideas Design Team working hard to perfect this masterpiece. Congratulations Donny Chen, and I can’t wait to build this next superb LEGO Ideas set.
The results are in: and it looks like we have another LEGO Ideas set that is destined to be a hit among AFOLs who grew up in the company of Elmo, Big Bird, Bert & Ernie and other memorable characters of the iconic children’s television show Sesame Street. The LEGO Ideas First 2019 Review results were finally announced, and wow, I’m really proud and happy for this one. If you recall earlier this year, we have high hopes for Ivan Guerrero’s (aka bulldoozer21 on LEGO Ideas) 123 Sesame Street project as it gathers the necessary votes in becoming the next LEGO Ideas set. Now thanks to the support and vote of confidence of more than 10,000 LEGO fans around the world, we can finally see this new LEGO set come to life.
In my opinion, the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street symbolizes a perfect union between LEGO and PBS, with both companies giving a premium on the value of creative play among children. I literally grew up and learned my ABCs thanks to Sesame Street which were hugely popular in the Philippines during the 1980s. So seeing this set becoming an official LEGO Ideas set really feels quite nostalgic, similar to how excited I was when Lendy Tayag’s LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311) became a reality. Another reason why I’m so proud in seeing this original brick creation become an officially approved LEGO Ideas set is the fact that this is another testament to the creative genius of the Filipino AFOL community. The LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street is the 2nd LEGO Ideas set originally designed by a Filipino, following the likes of Lendy Tayag and his LEGO Ideas Voltron.
Ivan’s original design for the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street comes in at 2,945 pieces but we can expect this to be tentative since the LEGO Design Team will still introduce some adjustments before its debut sometime next year. The official set is also expected to feature a huge collection of new minifigures of some of the popular characters on Sesame Street including Bob, Gordon, Susan, Bert, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Biff, Sully, Ernie, Cookie Monster, Count von Count, Prairie Dawn, Grover, and Elmo. Each portion of the iconic Sesame Street apartment features several memorable episodes of the TV show in which AFOLs who grew up with the series will surely recognize.
To know more on how this set was created, be sure to read on Ivan’s 10K Club Interview over at the LEGO Ideas blog site. Again, congratulations Ivan Guerrero and hope to see your LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street on store shelves very soon.
in all the chaos in Junkertown, a lot of her armor got damaged, and therefore overlapped and welded with old rusty pieces of metal lying around in Junkertowns surroundings. Though a lot of her changed, she still managed to keep some of her somewhat friendly personality.
I decided not to make huge changes to her, so the original design would be easy to recognize.
The model consists of 674 parts, its made in LDD and rendered with Stud.io ~ AlexWeigelt
Hanzo equipped for surviving in the harsh environment of the Outback.
This was a really fun build, both to recreate the character recognizably and also to add the Junkertown twist. I hope you enjoy! (The cloth elements are all LEGO: parts 32652, 32653, 36964, 35863, and bb685pb01.) ~ BallomNomNom
Even in the thick of the Australian outback, a scientist like Winston can figure out how to make the most of the surrounding junk. Armed with an electromagnetic frag launcher, a jet engine booster pack, a new cyborg arm, and of course, Winston never goes anywhere without his bull hide Spiffy hat! ~ Legofin.
This version of Winston ended up in Junkertown after he escaped from the Moon. He used his scientific and engineering skills to build armor and a jump pack of the remains of his crashed emergency pod and equipped himself with a demolition saw that he found in an abandoned junkyard. After some modifications of his own, he is now equipped and ready to take on the other inhabitants of Junkertown! ~ oOger
When Reinhardt was stranded in the Australian Outback without his powered armour, he had to adapt in order to survive. Crafting a new battle suit from old vehicle and spaceship parts, he is now ready to take on Junkertown in style… ~ MarkNewnham1
Each of the winners received the entire collection of 2019 LEGO Overwatch sets, plus an exclusive LEGO Overwatch box with special golden guns elements not found in any other LEGO sets.

Congratulations to the winners! Keep on building, mates!
It has been long dreamt for by long-time LEGO and Nintendo fans that a sort of crossover happens between these two pop icons – and these next LEGO Ideas product idea may hopefully pave the way for that. The Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables by Hanwasyellowfirst is our next LEGO Ideas project that managed to earn those needed 10K fan votes to enable it to qualify for the Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. This LEGO product idea takes its inspiration from the famed stables of the hit video game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that was released back in March of 2017 together with the world debut of the highly popular Nintendo Switch.
The LEGO Ideas Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables faithfully recreates the stables that are commonly found throughout the land of Hyrule. It also features several roof sections that can be opened to reveal the inner workings of the build. Other features include a fire pit and several benches, crates, ingredients, and of course horses. Proposed minifigures for this product idea includes the characters of Link, Kaas, Beedle, Pikango, Stable Master, Traveller, and a Mystery Minifig.
The LEGO Ideas Legend of Zelda: BotW Stables
Here is my first submission for LEGO ideas. The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of The Wild Stable.
I chose the Stable as it captures well the spirit of this great Zelda game. Stables can be found throughout the vast landscape of Hyrule and I think it looks great as a LEGO set too, plus… horses!
Disclaimer: Unfortunately I have zero graphic design expertise. So when it comes to the minifigures you will have to use your imagination, I have tried to get something as close to representative as possible from what was on offer.
This, therefore, is also the case for any printed elements or stickers you imagine would be involved,
some classic Hylian script and some tasty recipes on the inside wall!
The roof sections are hinged to allow the stable and horse pen to open up. Inside are 4 beds, a table and chairs, a recipe and the reception desk (for the trusty Stable Master to turn trusty Inn-keep).
Grab some apples or monster parts and cook up something tasty! Missing an ingredient? Why don’t you check the crates, or ask Beedle! I’m sure I saw a Lizalfos horn somewhere about…
Feed the stable dog a nice piece of prime meat, maybe he will reward you!
You may even be able to see signs of a sneaky Korok nearby…
