LEGO Art Mosaics Alternate Building Instructions

The LEGO Art collection was introduced back in 2020 with four sets; the #31197 LEGO Art Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe mosaic, the #31198 LEGO Art The Beatles mosaic, the #31199 LEGO Art Marvel Studios Iron Man mosaic, and the #31200 LEGO Art Star Wars The Sith mosaic. In 2021, an additional four sets were added to the collection; the #21226 LEGO Art Project – Create Together kit, the #31201 LEGO Art Harry Potter Hogwarts Crests mosaic, the #31202 LEGO Art Disney’s Mickey Mouse mosaic, and the #31203 LEGO Art World Map.

One awesome feature of these sets is that they all come with alternate builds, so you can choose from several different designs. Some of these alternates can be found in the instruction books, and others are available online. Recently, LEGO added several alternate instructions for some of the most recently released sets.

The #31202 LEGO Art Disney’s Mickey Mouse mosaic gets a couple of additional options for building Mickey or Minnie. The #31201 LEGO Art Harry Potter Hogwarts Crests mosaic can be rebuilt into a Golden Snitch mosaic, a Platform 93/4 sign, or a mosaic of Hedwig. Finally, the #31203 LEGO Art World Map can be rebuilt into a close-up map of Europe, or a map of Denmark, the home of the LEGO Group.

All of these alternate instructions can be downloaded at the LEGO VIP Rewards Center. There are no points to redeem, so you can download them completely free. Once you click the redeem button at the LEGO VIP Rewards Center, you will get a download button to get the PDF version of the instructions.

The LEGO Art sets are a fantastic way to spend some quiet time and assemble nice-looking decor. If you want to take a look at the currently available selection, visit the LEGO Art section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Last summer, LEGO announced that they were going to put LEGO VIDIYO on pause and reassess the theme (see: Update on the Future of LEGO VIDIYO) and then relaunch it in 2023. However, last week, LEGO released another announcement stating that they decided to retire the theme for good.

As you probably know already, LEGO VIDIYO was developed in collaboration with Universal Music Group and combined physical LEGO elements with augmented reality to make music videos. The first wave included small sets called BeatBoxes and collectible minifigures – both with printed 2×2 tiles (called BeatBits) that could be scanned by the LEGO VIDIYO app. The second wave featured larger building sets, more printed tiles, and wacky characters. While the nicely designed minifigures, unique elements, and printed tiles were appreciated, the app was buggy, the pricing excessive, and the theme provided little in terms of traditional building experience. Below is the latest official statement made by LEGO about their recent decision to retire the theme.

In July 2021 we decided to pause the LEGO VIDIYO roll-out to review performance and test new ideas. Through the extensive quantitative and qualitative research we have undertaken in the previous months, we have gained an enormous amount of learnings in terms of the music and content creation space and what it would take to succeed with the play experience, our go-to-market strategy in 2023, and not least how to build a sustainable business based on the VIDIYO experience.

Based on these insights we have decided to discontinue the physical VIDIYO products from January 31st, 2022 but will continue to support the app experience for another two years to serve those consumers who have bought the products.

We still see great potential in pursuing music as a passion point and we will take learnings from LEGO VIDIYO as we continue to explore future fluid play experiences.

It’s sad to see an interesting original theme go like this, but it’s understandable based on the weaknesses mentioned above. You can learn more about the LEGO VIDIYO theme via the links at the end of this post, and find the sets from the first and second wave at the LEGO VIDIYO section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? How do you like LEGO VIDIYO? Do you have any of the sets? Have you used the app? And what do you think about the discontinuation of the theme? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below!
