There is exciting news from the LEGO® Ideas team. The official announcement of the next sets selected to become actual LEGO® kits came earlier today on their official blog (click here to go visit). These are fan designed sets that achieved 10,000 supporters on the LEGO® Ideas platform in between May and September of 2019. The team reviewed eleven sets from that time frame, and the 2019 round two review results are in.
As shown in the image above, the competition was steep. However, the winners of this round are the Medieval Blacksmith and Winnie the Pooh. With the announcement fresh off the press, there is no word yet on the pricing, brick count, Minifigure count, or release dates of these sets. The images shown below are the original fan designs, which LEGO® set designers will now evaluate and tweak.
Admittedly, I am very excited about the Blacksmith. The Castles theme was a favorite of mine growing up. This sets makes me a little giddy, just like the Pirate Bay announcement last September. Incidentally, Pirates was my other favorite theme as a kid. The Medieval Blacksmith set was design by Clemens Fiedler, and kudos to him because it looks great. You can see additional images of his design on his product idea page by clicking here.
AFOLs get a throwback to the Castles theme!
In truth, the Winnie the Pooh set excites me a little less. Having never been a big fan of the character, the set does not do much for me on a personal level. That is not to say that it is not deserving. The set looks nice, but it is not for me. However, if it speaks to you, check out more pictures on designer Ben Alder’s page by clicking here.
