It’s that time of year! LEGO Ideas, the official LEGO platform that allows passionate builders to submit their custom creations for a chance to turn them into official sets, has revealed the latest batch projects selected for review.

A total of 57 sets made the cut for the First 2021 Review and among them are a number of video game-based projects. This includes sets we’ve previously reported on – Artem Biziaev’s “Hyrule Castle” set, L-DI-EGO’s “Metroid: Samus Aran’s Gunship” set, and TiagoCatarino’s “Animal Crossing: New Horizons Paradise.”

 

 

Other video game-focused sets include a very “sus” VaderFan2187’s “Among Us: The Skeld Detailed Map” set which, as the name suggests, features a detailed recreation of Among Us’ main map. It features a “press-able emergency button and open-able vents,” as well as “special play features” with interactive weapons and a trash disposal that ejects mini LEGO pieces. There are also 12 Minifigures based on the game’s various color-coded characters. Even Portal is still alive thanks to a submission from Angry4rtichoke! And while it isn’t tied to a particular video game property, there’s the Retro Arcade set by If You Build It and it’s filled with a variety of arcade cabinets (notably Pac-Man and Space Invaders).

 

 

You can check out the full list on Lego Ideas’ blog and see a variety of projects – from original ideas to sets based on many other recognizable media franchises including The Hobbit, The Simpsons, and Asterix and Obelix to name a few.

It’s quite a feat to make it to this review! All 57 Lego Ideas submissions needed 10,000 supporters on the platform to even make it this far. We’ll find out if any of these sets will make it to the coveted “in production stage” later this fall.
