After the teaser given by the LEGO Store in China last week, LEGO has finally given us our very first look at the upcoming LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book (21315). LEGO made the reveal via LEGO Ideas’ official social media pages as you can see below.
To be frank, the Pop-Up book’s corresponding box art and minifigures have been already leaked on the Internet so we already have an idea of how it might look like. However, seeing the actual set as it is, gave me a better appreciation of this newest LEGO Ideas set. The LEGO Ideas design team really did a good job in improving the original product idea of fan designer Jason Allemann, who also happens to be the fan designer behind 2016’s LEGO Ideas Maze (21305).
I absolutely love how the dark red and green and colors were used in the LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book (21315), and the nice touch on the “Once Upon a Brick” title. I’m not quite sure if the title is made out of a sticker, or if it’s printed on a huge tile. However, my bet is that it’s probably a sticker. Though I haven’t seen the images of the actual set, the box art of the Pop-Up Book suggests that it has two stories to tell. The 10-second teaser trailer already hinted on the classic story of Red Riding Hood considering the inclusion of the wolf minifigure disguised as Red’s grandma.
The second alternate build of the set highlights another classic fairy tale which is the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. It looks like it will be using a nanofigure for Jack to make it somehow proportionally scaled to the buildable beanstalk that stretches from the ground up to the clouds. The LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book (21315) will also include four minifigures: Red Riding Hood, Grandma, Wolf in disguise, the Giant, and a Jack nanofigure. The full reveal of this set is slated on October 26 so we can expect more teasers and additional info to come out anytime soon.
