LEGO Ideas Pick-a-Brick Sets Coming Soon

In case you missed it, the LEGO Ideas website announced nine new LEGO Ideas Pick-a-Brick sets to be released this year. As part of last year’s re-opening of the LEGO Ideas Test Lab platform, these nine new designs were submitted as digital designs, in which LEGO Ideas members were invited to participate.

If you recall, the LEGO Ideas Test Lab was launched in 2017 as a new seedbed for testing smaller LEGO sets following a crowdsourcing model. The concept went into hiatus for some time and was re-launched in September last year in collaboration with LEGO’s Pick-a-Brick service. Participation in the re-launch was on a per-invite basis, where several prolific LEGO Ideas members and builders were asked to join. And after several months of review, we finally get to see our first wave of LEGO Ideas Pick-a-Brick sets.

There is no word yet on their exact release dates. But we can be sure that seven will be available anytime soon over at, while two will be available as seasonal sets. Chances are that they will be available via LEGO Pick-a-Brick packs together with their digital instructions.

Check them out below, and let me know your favorite.

LEGO Ideas 2023 Sets To Watch Out For

2022 was a great year for LEGO Ideas, with a total of 9 LEGO fan-designed sets, 2 of which were approved to become gift-with-purchase sets in the likes of Cosmic Cardboard Adventures (40533) and Ray Castaway (40566). And for this year, the LEGO Ideas Design Team certainly has a lot on its plate as fans eagerly await their official rendition of this year’s LEGO Ideas 2023 sets.

For 2023, we can expect the same number of official LEGO Ideas sets to be released similar to that of last year with 7 approved product ideas that eventually had the green light from designers. These LEGO Ideas 2023 sets are still in the works, and here’s a recap of this next wave of community-supported sets that we can’t wait to put our hands on this year.

In order of its review results, these approved sets are:

We can also expect a fan-designed, gift-with-purchase set in the form of a Tribute to Galileo Galilei to be available this year. If you recall, this original creation was the grand prize winner of the LEGO Ideas’ Ready, Set, Go, STEM Challenge in May last year. Created by fan designer Firecracker_, this GWP will most likely be offered towards the 2nd half of 2023.

The Tribute to Galileo Galilei is our next LEGO Ideas gift-with-purchase set. Fan model, not final product.

It is also worth noting that there are 3 more LEGO Ideas sets to watch out for, though they are more likely to be released by 2024. These upcoming sets are based on winning entries that came in on top of LEGO Ideas Challenges in collaboration with Target and Wizards of the Coast LLC. I’m including them here for our reference but they will most likely be available next year. However, bear in mind that nothing is set in stone as far as their release dates are concerned until such time that LEGO confirms their availability.

What LEGO Ideas 2023 set are you most excited about? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.

LEGO Ideas Dungeons and Dragons Set Coming Very Soon

The greatest fantasy tabletop role-playing game of all time is finally getting the LEGO treatment. Back in October, LEGO Ideas launched a building challenge that will test the mettle of LEGO and Dungeons & Dragons fans. And after several months of grueling idea intakes, expert reviews, and crowd votes, a winner was selected to become the first-ever LEGO Ideas Dungeons and Dragons set.

LEGO fan builder BoltBuilds and his Dragon’s Keep: Journey’s End MOC eventually bested other entries to officially become a LEGO Ideas set. The announcement was made last Thursday via the LEGO Ideas website.

We know who made the Fan Vote, but who has had their entry selected to become one of the next LEGO Ideas sets?!

After hundreds of entries and an exciting Fan Vote, only one could be selected! A huge thank you to everyone who participated. We are very happy to announce that Dragon’s Keep: Journey’s End has been selected! A huge congratulations to BoltBuilds, the incredible designer behind this submission.

LEGO Ideas Dungeons and Dragons

Fan builder BoltBuilds envisioned this next LEGO Ideas set to be the ultimate brick representation of the iconic game, featuring a Witches Tower, Tavern, Dungeon, and a Crypt. At approximately 3,000 pieces, this rendition also includes a magnificent Green Dragon, Beholder, and a party of six minifigures.

LEGO Ideas DnD set 5

Given the size of this build, we can expect that the LEGO Ideas design team will certainly have fun stuffing in all the many play features that make this set uniquely D&D. We do not have a release date yet, but given the many approved LEGO Ideas product ideas still being worked along the way (such as the A-Frame Cabin and BTS Dynamite among others), we can somewhat expect this LEGO Ideas Dungeons and Dragons set to be on shelves sometime in 2024.

Will this be on your must-have list? Let me know in the comments below.

Third 2022 LEGO Ideas Review Stage Commences With 35 Product Ideas

Earlier last month, we revisited the LEGO Ideas platform as it nears the end of its most current project submission stage. And this time around the review team made its announcement, officially closing the submission stage and opening the way for its Third 2022 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.

We featured 33 product ideas last month that managed to gather the needed 10,000 fan votes to take the step towards becoming an official LEGO Ideas set. And this time around, 3 additional projects were added to the roster giving us a total of 35 product ideas officially entering the said review stage.

Unfortunately, the Neverending Story (40th Anniversary) product idea was eventually removed from the list of qualifiers due to a copyright takedown request from the iconic film’s license holder. This gives us a total of 35 qualifiers instead of 36 making the final roster.

The product idea Neverending Story (40th Anniversary) was eventually removed from the list of qualifiers for the Third 2022 LEGO Ideas Review Stage due to a copyright takedown request. As of this posting, the link for its respective LEGO Ideas product idea page was eventually removed. 

These 3 additional product ideas include:










The Second 2022 LEGO Ideas Review Stage is also about to wrap up, with an outstanding total of 51 product ideas anxiously waiting for the seal of approval of the LEGO Ideas Review Team. The announcement of the approved sets is expected to happen anytime soon this month or within this quarter, so will keep a close eye on this one.

Update: LEGO Ideas Third Review Stage 2022 is Almost Near

It has been a while since we covered the LEGO Ideas scene, and in case you missed it, the LEGO Ideas Third Review Stage 2022 is about to commence with currently 33 product ideas on the table and still counting.

As a fan of LEGO Ideas and MOCs in general, I’m always in support of LEGO Ideas fan submissions, with more than a couple of project proposals that I sincerely cheered on, and eventually rose to the top as official LEGO sets (Voltron, 123 Sesame Street, and Cosmic Card Adventures just to name a few).

And though we’re still looking forward to seeing on shelves 7 more product ideas that managed to get the nod of the LEGO Ideas Review Team (The Orient Express, Tales of the Space Age, Polaroid Onestep SX-70, LEGO Insects, A-Frame Cabin, Hocus Pocus, and BTS Dynamite), there’s still a lot to look forward to with our next wave of entries for the LEGO Ideas Third Review Stage 2022. These are the entries that managed to get the support of more than 10,000 LEGO fans who wished to see them become official LEGO sets in the future.

In no particular order, here are the qualifiers that will enter the said review period. You may click on their respective links to know more about these original LEGO fan creations. And like other entries, there’s a lot of potential in this set of qualifiers. From pop culture icons to memorable, picturesque locations, there’s something for every LEGO fan

LEGO Teases Possible Ideas Foosball Table (21337), Coming November

Long has LEGO been one of the most recognizable faces of “toys you put together to play with”. Their near-infinite number of sets let collectors and builders create buildings, vehicles and more. But how about LEGO sets that, when put together, allow people to play other established games/sports beyond the bricks themselves? That may well be the selling point of this new upcoming set in the LEGO Ideas line. The build in question was the winner of a sports-themed Ideas contest from last year. While LEGO has yet to officially reveal it, they’ve been teasing the set a lot recently.

As The Brick Fan has it, LEGO is showing sneak peeks of an upcoming Ideas set for next month. Considering that one teaser on Twitter shows two top football players from the Premier League, it must be football/soccer-related. Another post, this time on Facebook, seemingly confirms the subject. But rather than a set depicting an outright football match, apparently the game will be “tabletop” in nature. Thus, the prevailing theory is that LEGO’s teasing an Ideas Foosball Table set. This product is supposedly numbered 21337. It may well be the Grand Winner of 2021’s “We Love Sports!” LEGO Ideas contest, created by Constructions by Donat.

No actual images of the LEGO Ideas Foosball Table (21337) have surfaced yet. But if it’s anything like the original Contest-winning entry, then it’s a fully-functional brick-built Foosball game. Even with its smaller scale (55x30cm in the original), the rod mechanisms should all be workable. As LEGO’s teasers state, this set will launch on November 1. So, we can at least be assured of a full reveal before that time.

LEGO October 2022 GWP Ray the Castaway (40566) Gets Product Listing Too

At last, September 2022 is drawing to a close. We can look forward to yet another blitz of new LEGO set launches next month. This includes other extras like the usual gifts-with-purchase items available at minimum purchase limits. One particular GWP set we’re already aware of is Ray the Castaway (40566). This item won its spot from a LEGO Ideas contest challenge. While we got an advance glimpse of the set last week, this time LEGO’s got an item listing for it. This bit of news is brought to us by The Brick Fan. We’ll let the LEGO Shop page speak further about this GWP.

Ray the Castaway (40566)

Age 18+ | 239 pieces | 1 minifigure | worth $19.99 but is a gift-with-purchase

40566 1

Escape the everyday and join Ray the Castaway on a brick-built desert island with this LEGO® Ideas set (40566). Build palm trees, a shelter and a raft, and bring the scene to life with the Ray minifigure, plus parrot, crab and 2 fish figures. This competition-winning model was created by LEGO fan designers and makes a delightful gift for adults or any LEGO enthusiast.

  • Colorful desert island model (40566) for play and display – Build a life on a brick-built desert island for Ray the Castaway with this LEGO® Ideas competition-winning model, created by fan designers
  • Realistic details – The desert island model features a buildable shelter, raft and palm trees, plus a Ray minifigure and parrot, crab and 2 fish figures

The GWP promo period for Ray the Castaway (40566) runs from the 1st to 16th of October. Collectors need only a minimum total LEGO purchase of $120 to get this mini-set.

Sneak Peek of Next LEGO GWP Ray the Castaway (40566)

Not all LEGO Ideas submissions go on to become full-blown purchasable sets. Some product ideas may become official sets, but only as gift-with-purchase freebies for minimum LEGO purchases. Usually, these builds were winners of contests hosted by LEGO Ideas. Winning these contests would still count as exposure for many aspiring builder-contributors on the Ideas platform. Speaking of which, a new Ideas submission will debut as a GWP set quite soon. This contribution won a LEGO Ideas contest from last year. Now we get our first glimpse of it, ahead of the official LEGO promo reveal.

German LEGO news source Promobricks gives us this initial image of the Ray the Castaway (40566) GWP set. Ideas 10K Club Member DadiTwins created this set for the “Do You Want to Go to the Seaside?” Contest Challenge in 2021. The set features the titular castaway Ray on his own tropical island, with makeshift hut and palm trees. With only a parrot for company, Ray survives by fishing from shore or on his trusty raft. Check out the original submission:

This 239-piece set is said to launch its gift-with-purchase period starting October 1. In the US, LEGO buyers need a minimum purchase of $120 to get it. Thankfully, with the new-set launches at month’s start, that would be easy enough.
