Our next LEGO Ideas set is about to officially be revealed soon, with LEGO releasing a video teaser hinting at the arrival of its 3rd LEGO Ideas set of 2021 – the LEGO Ideas Typewriter (21327).

As a fan-submitted entry by LEGO fan builder Steve Guinness over at the LEGO Ideas platform, this brick-built classic typewriter managed to win the approval of the LEGO Ideas Review Team during the Third 2019 Review Stage.
According to sources from brick street, the LEGO Ideas Typewriter is quite a hefty one, clocking in at 2,078 pieces making it the sixth-largest LEGO Ideas set in the theme. It is also rumored to come in a predominant sand green color, as opposed to being gray like how Steve intended it to be. I’m not quite sure about it, but it is also rumored that the choice of presenting it in sand green was influenced by the classic Erika-10 typewriter that Ole Kirk once used in the 1930s.
Additionally, with an expected retail price of $200, it may also suggest that the Typewriter may also feature certain Powered Up functions similar to what it did with the LEGO Ideas Grand Piano (21323). I just hope that this is an optional upgrade of sorts since I am already content with the original design’s working keytop and typebars without the added hardware.
The official release date of the LEGO Ideas Typewriter is also said to be slated for June 16 next week so it is expected that more info might come out this week after the initial teaser. Aside from the LEGO Ideas Typewriter (21327), we can also expect its contemporaries like the LEGO Ideas Home Alone: McCallister’s House and LEGO Ideas Seinfeld 30th Anniversary sets are already in their pre-production stages considering that these two product ideas were also approved to become official LEGO sets alongside the Typewriter. Hopefully will find more info about these before the end of the 3rd quarter.
In the meantime, be sure to keep tabs with us for more updates about this next upcoming LEGO Ideas set.
