We are all Lego fans here. My husband and I both played with LEGO as kids, and we love it that our children now also love playing with it too. Did you know there is a website dedicated to ideas from fans? It’s called LEGO Ideas and there is a video about how it works here. Essentially, fans create and showcase potential Lego sets on the website and members vote on their favourites. If an idea reaches 10,000 votes, it enters the review phase, and potentially gets made into a set.
One recent idea that will be launched in shops in February was designed by Jake Sadovich. Pictured below is the original design Jake submitted in November 2016. He was inspired by an actual ship-in-a-bottle he completed. Find out more about Jake Sadovich in his 10K Club Interview.
The final product LEGO Ideas 21313 Ship in a Bottle is pictured below and is set to be released in February.
Continue a nautical tradition when you build this LEGO® Ideas 21313 Ship in a Bottle, featuring a highly detailed ship with the captain’s quarters, cannons, masts, crow’s nest, flag and printed sail elements. Place the ship inside the LEGO brick-built bottle with a buildable cork, wax seal element and water-style elements inside, then showcase it on the display stand featuring the ship’s ‘Leviathan’ nameplate, globe elements and a built-in ‘compass’ (non-functioning) with compass rose and spinning needle. This wonderfully nostalgic construction toy also includes a booklet about the set’s fan creator and LEGO designers.
