The House of the Brick officially unveiled today this year’s exclusive LEGO House set. After legendary LEGO designer Stuart Harris gave a bit of a teaser a couple of days ago, LEGO has finally lifted the curtain to its LEGO House A Minifigure Tribute (40504). Read the announcement below.
A tribute to the minifigure!
New LEGO® House Exclusive set From 1 March!
LEGO House A Minifigure Tribute (40504)
This year marks the 45th anniversary since the LEGO Group launched the very first LEGO minifigure in 1978. Since then, more than 10 billion minifigures have been produced in more than 8000 variants.
You can take part in celebrating the legendary minifigure by building the iconic Captain Redbeard, this year’s LEGO House Exclusive set. The finished figure, complete with a peg leg, pirate hat, and hook, is approx. 30 cm. high and consists of 1041 bricks.
This exclusive set is sold from 1 March 2023 and is only available in the LEGO store in LEGO House, Billund, Denmark.
Each year, the LEGO House Exclusive sets pay tribute to the most iconic LEGO Group stories. ‘A Minifigure Tribute’ is the fourth set in the series. These special sets can only be bought in the LEGO Store at LEGO House.

Here’s a bit of trivia according to LEGO: as of to date, there’s a total of 10 billion minifigures already out there since the first one came out of production. The LEGO Minifigure is also 45 years old since its initial launch and current iteration from 1978.
That is why The LEGO Group saw it fit to offer this next LEGO House exclusive set to the iconic character of Captain Redbeard – one of the most popular minifigure characters ever created coming from the classic Pirates theme. If you’re a fan of the theme, you might recall that Captain Redbeard originally came with the LEGO Pirates Black Seas Barracuda 6285 from 1989. The set was later re-released in 2002 with set number 10040, then re-imagined in the most recent LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322) of 2020.
This brick-built version of Captain Redbeard clocks in at 1,041 pieces and stands 30 centimeters tall. The LEGO House A Minifigure Tribute (40504) is available only at the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark, for $84.99. Unless you already have an arranged trip to the House of the Brick, your options might be limited if you’re eyeing this exclusive.
