It was submitted to LEGO Ideas no later than last year. It earned 10,000 supporters by April 2018. It joined the Ideas First 2018 Review Stage the following month, and was one of two chosen by reviewers for production, come October. The official set was teased last week, and it was even showcased in the recent New York Toy Fair.
We’re of course talking about LEGO Ideas Flintstones, based on an original submission by Andrew Clark. Set 21316, now listed online at Shop@Home, is scheduled to be released on the first of March. But for LEGO VIP members, say “YABBA-DABBA-DOO!”
That’s right: LEGO Ideas Flintstones (21316) can now be had early by LEGO fans on the VIP program. Considering the timetable, it puts them at just over a week ahead of regular buyers who will need to wait until next month; it’s not much of an advantage, but who can say no to early availability?
At 748 pieces for US$59.99 the LEGO Ideas Flintstones set (21316) is a good deal for both Ideas collectors and fans of good old TV animation and Hanna-Barbera. Four other major regions of Shop@Home – Canada (Eng/Fr), UK, Metropolitan France and Germany – also have it ready for interested LEGO VIP members.
