I usually wait for the LEGO® Group to officially announce sets before I report on them… But I’m too excited about this one. For those who read True North Bricks regularly, you know I’ve mentioned this set a few times. It was the subject of a LEGO® x Target contest back in 2022 whereby three past 10k submissions from LEGO® Ideas got a second wind. In August of the same year, this set came out the winner. I’ve been eagerly waiting for the set to come out, pointing out how much I want it every time I do an Ideas update. Now, we get a first look through some low-res photos posted online. Get ready, the LEGO® Ideas Viking Village was revealed in France today.

I really wish the LEGO® Group had been more on the ball with this info… I have not even heard whispers of a press kit yet. Hi-res photos would reveal more details and give the reveal a little more ‘umf’. But once I saw these photos online, I could not unsee them. Additionally, the low quality photos have maintained my interest in this offering. It doesn’t look that far off from the LEGO® Ideas submission seen below.
The Viking Village is a Target exclusive in the United States. However, here in Canada we should be able to acquire it through all the usual channels. Both here and in the States, it will be available through the LEGO® Store regardless. Has the LEGO® Ideas Viking Village made your wish list? Did it stay there after the early reveal images? Let me know in the comments or reach out on social media. Stay tuned for some better quality photos, because you know I’ll be all over those!
Until next time,
