First 2022 Ideas Results Are In

This morning, the LEGO® Group announced the first 2022 Ideas results. These are fan concepts that reached 10k supporters on the LEGO® Ideas platform between January and May 2022. 39 concepts went into the review, but only four came out as future sets. Consequently, LEGO® Ideas now has eight sets in development. These already include the A-Frame Cabin, BTS “Dynamite”, Hocus Pocus, and the Viking Village. Read on to find out the new additions!

LEGO® Insects

A huge congratulations to Fan Designer José María (aka hachiroku24). José María has hit a homerun with his small builds inspired by 5 different insects found around the world. He has captured the colours, shapes and overall details so well that it’s hard to tell they are brick-built! We think they will be a great way to bring a piece of nature into your home without bugging you!

Orient Express

Big congratulations to Fan Designer Thomas Lajon (aka LEt.sGO). We’re so excited to finally give our fans a train set! There are a few trains as famous as the Orient Express but none of them can rival the elegance, luxury and history that comes with it. Thomas has poured a lot of love into capturing the details from the locomotive and coal car to the restaurant car to make sure this is the perfect tribute to such a legendary train. It’s a special privilege to bring this creation to life in LEGO bricks!

Tales of the Space Age

A huge congratulations to our first Polish Fan Designer Jan Woźnica (aka john_carter). Jan’s 3-piece product idea intrigued our review board and we’re certain it also caught the fascination of the community overall. He’s managed to create stunning poster style sci-fi scenes filled with action and serenity, showing you don’t need a lot of bricks or loads of details to create awe-inspiring LEGO models.

Polaroid OneStep SX-70

A huge congratulations to Fan Designer Marc (aka Minibrick Productions) for being selected with his incredible tribute to the iconic Polaroid OneStep SX-70 camera. Using his mechanical engineering background, Marc not only made this creation look flawless but also added hidden functionality that mimics the development of film as it slides out of the camera. We can’t wait to see the memories created with this Polaroid camera.

As usual, the LEGO® Group will reveal the final set numbers, piece counts, and prices for these sets later on. That information comes once design teams have produced and tested the final sets. Of these new concepts, Tales of the Space Age interests me the most. However, none have me as excited as the news earlier this year of the Viking Village. What LEGO® Ideas set(s) are you looking forward to? Did any of the first 2022 Ideas results concepts make your wish list? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,

-Tom

    totally in for the Hocus Pocus. and the A frame is so great.

    1. I’m looking forward to the A-frame too. Hocus Pocus looks neat… But since I’m not huge on the movie, I’ll wait and see the final product before making any decisions or judgements 😂
