LEGO Ideas RuPaul’s Brick Race Achieves 10,000 Supporters

The RuPaul’s Brick Race by SeeMarkGeek is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The project is based on the reality competition show called RuPaul’s Drag Race and honestly, I’ve never even heard of it before I saw it on the most supported projects list. Apparently, it’s based on some competition called Clutch Game which is a celebrity impersonation challenge. I’ll just leave it at that.

The Dive Shop now joins the Pop-Up Book, Boat House Diner, The Lighthouse, Jaguar E-Type Roadster, and The Dive Shop as the projects to reach the Third 2017 Review Stage.

LEGO Ideas NASA Saturn V (21309) Available on Target eBay Store

Act fast as this set is still one of the main top-selling sets, especially for this holiday season. The Saturn V on [email protected] has been going in and out of stock very quickly since you can get VIP points for it while Amazon had it for a while with frustration-free packaging and some people don’t like it shipped that way.

Update: It’s now sold out.
