Last June, the LEGO® Group announced the third round of review results for sets that passed the 10,000-supporter mark in 2019. The first of them is about to hit a LEGO® Store near you. Incidentally, the LEGO® Ideas Typewriter is coming soon. This set was the brainchild of fan designer Steve Guinness from Chester in the United Kingdom. The design features moving parts and a look based off of the device used by LEGO® Founder, Ole Kirk Christiansen.
The official press release describes the set as follows:
Intricately designed to mirror the function and tactility of a classic typewriter, the LEGO Ideas Typewriter features a center typebar that rises each time a letter key is pressed, linked to the carriage which moves across as you type, as well as a platen roller that real paper can be fed into.
In a fitting nod to the lost art of letter writing, the premium quality LEGO Typewriter set also comes with a letter written and signed by Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, chairman of the LEGO Group and a fourth-generation member of the family which still privately owns the business to this day.
