LEGO House From AFOL to LEGO Designer Event Postponed Until 2021

Last year, I reported that the LEGO House will be holding an event called From AFOL to LEGO Designer which was supposed to be happening this Friday. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, LEGO has announced through the LEGO Ambassador Network that the event will be postponed to 2021. Fans who have already booked their trip will unfortunately be stuck with a sticky situation.

The fan event was intended for fans to meet and greet three LEGO designers Mark John Stafford, Justin Ramsden, and Marcos Bessa. We’ll update with more information as soon as there are more details for the 2021 event.

The decision was not taken light hearted but was necessary due to the Corona Virus situation and the to this connected internal LEGO Group guidelines.

We will postpone this fan evening to 2021.


LEGO House Tree of Creativity (4000026) to be Discontinued

If you’ve been wanting to go to the LEGO House to pick up the exclusive Tree of Creativity (4000026) set, you may want to do so soon as LEGO has announced that it will be discontinued. The set will be available until they run out of stock so I’m assuming they don’t have a lot of inventory left. There is a special arrangement for some sets to be held back for attendees of AFOL Day in LEGO House in September.

The shelf space that is used for the set will be used for a new exclusive product that will be out in late May 2020 so stay tuned for that reveal in the next few months. Check out the press release below.

LEGO House Tree of Creativity” to discontinue

Since the opening of LEGO House it has been an important milestone to create exclusive products that relate to LEGO House and adds to the LEGO House experience for the guests. The first exclusive product launched was the LEGO House Architecture (21037) in 2017, followed by the LEGO House Tree of Creativity (4000026) in 2018, and then the LEGO House Dinosaurs (40366) in 2019.

LEGO House has now decided to discontinue the LEGO House Tree of Creativity – in order to make shelf space for a new exclusive product arriving in late May 2020.

The Tree of Creativity was originally launched as a great reproduction of the 15,6 metre tall Tree of Creativity in LEGO Square. The most iconic features were resized into the retail model. LEGO


LEGO Collectible Minifigures Display at LEGO House

If you’re going to the LEGO House, you’ll be able to see a new display set up for the LEGO Collectible Minifigures series. It has been a whole ten years since LEGO launched the “theme” and to commemorate the event, there will be a display showing all of the minifigures that have been released the past decade. We’re up to Series 19 with 20 coming later this year as well as a few licensed waves and for their own IPs like The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Who has been collecting from the start and do you have a complete collection including the ever exclusive Mr. Gold?


New Food Concept Coming to LEGO House

LEGO has closed the LE GOURMET restaurant at the LEGO House and will introducing a new food concept in which you can name the restaurant.

Guest record and new food concept in LEGO House

2019 was a huge success in LEGO® House, reaching no less than 281,786 paying guests and thus a 15% growth compared to 2018. But this success comes with a cost, says Managing Director Jesper Vilstrup:

“We are really proud that we in 2019 exceeded our expectations for the number of guests in both the Experience Zones and in the public area of LEGO Square. But unfortunately having this many guests means that we cannot provide the dining experience we would like to in our eateries – the capacity is simply too low. And that applies both to the kitchen and in the restaurant areas.”

Therefore, management has made the decision to close the fine-dining restaurant, LE GOURMET, and the restaurant will therefore not open with the rest of the house after the winter close-down on January 18, 2020.

Jesper Vilstrup says:

“Closing LE GOURMET has been a difficult decision as we basically love the restaurant and the idea of having a great gourmet restaurant in Billund. On the other hand, it is no secret that it has been difficult to attract a continuous flow of guests into the restaurant. And when you consider that we have capacity challenges for our dining LEGO House guests during the day, it ultimately makes sense to utilise the space better.”

Already in weeks 6 and 7,

Record Number of Guests at LEGO House This Summer

LEGO has released a press release about the LEGO House which states that there is a record number of guests attending the attraction this summer. Ticket sales have surpassed last year’s numbers by 30-40% and there have been days where the LEGO House has been completely sold out.

Record number of guests at LEGO® House this summer

New visitor record this summer in LEGO® House. Despite hot days, guests have booked tickets over the past five weeks, exceeding last summer’s figures by 30-40%.

At the start of the summer holidays, the previous record week was the Easter week in April. But that record was broken in week 30 (also week 29 was very close) and several times this summer LEGO House has had to report completely sold out.

Jesper Vilstrup, CEO of LEGO House says: “The feedback from our guests is that we create an absolutely fantastic LEGO experience for both children and adults, and the guests are fortunately sharing their experience in LEGO House with family and friends. Many people share their experiences via social media, and we can clearly see that the awareness about LEGO House has increased over the past year, which I am convinced is one of the reasons for the great visitor numbers. Now guests simply have a better idea of what LEGO House is.”

LEGO House opened its doors to the public for the first time in September 2017, and since then, visitor numbers have only gone up. Last summer was the first high season at the attraction, and although

Three giant LEGO® dinosaurs greet visitors when they climb the stairs to the Experience Zones of the LEGO House. Available from April 17th as a retail set.

The LEGO model is a great reproduction of the giant dinosaurs capturing all the most iconic features in a rescaled version.

Designer Nina Koopman says: ”One of the biggest challenges with the new model has been to capture all the details from the big models. Especially since the models in Masterpiece Gallery were all built of the three different building systems LEGO DUPLO, LEGO Technic and LEGO System. You see it especially with the yellow dino where we
