LEGO Ideas Bluey! Achieves 10,000 Supporters

The Bluey! project by Monkey Scout is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas.

The build features the main characters in brick-built form and it also has their house and car.

LEGO Ideas Motorized Lighthouse (21335) Officially Announced

LEGO has officially revealed the next LEGO Ideas set with the Motorized Lighthouse (21335). Releasing on September 1, the set has 2,065 piece and retails for $299.99. The set makes use of a motor to light up the structure as well as turning the light inside. Our review of the set should be coming soon so stay tuned for that.


18th August 2022: The LEGO Group has revealed a bright new set – The LEGO® Ideas Motorized Lighthouse. The latest LEGO Ideas set is a fan-inspired design, towering in height at 50cm tall – and is a unique way to add a new display piece to your home as it comes complete with a motorized light.

Full of details, the 2,065 piece set is designed authentically to mirror how a real lighthouse operates. It sits on its own island, with a staircase leading up to the lightkeeper’s cottage, plus two minifigures and their boat also add detail to the display.

The LEGO Ideas Motorized Lighthouse is based on an idea shared by 20-year old, Canadian LEGO fan, Sandro Quattrini. Sandro submitted his original concept on the LEGO Ideas platform, where it reached 10,000 votes from fellow LEGO fans. The concept was then commissioned by the LEGO Group to be made into a real set.

Sandro, who is currently studying animation, was inspired to design the lighthouse by a childhood trip. “My mother loves lighthouses, and she has been telling me
