All four dates of the LEGO Inside Tour for 2016 are now passed, which means that we can talk a bit more in detail about the tour without spoiling the experience for anyone. As we have discussed previously (see links at the end of this post), the LEGO Inside Tour is considered the ultimate experience for the few lucky LEGO fans who are accepted to participate in the tour each year. 🙂
During the LEGO Inside Tour you are invited inside Ole Kirk Kristiansen’s original house, featuring an extraordinary exhibition of LEGO sets and models that date back to 1934. You also meet LEGO employees who introduce you to their daily work at the LEGO Group, and you can even take part in a unique building experience together with LEGO designers. The LEGO Inside Tour also consists of a factory tour, where you can see how LEGO bricks are produced. And at the end of the tour, participants receive a unique LEGO set exclusively produced in close cooperation with Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen for LEGO Inside Tour participants.
The LEGO Inside Tour sets are something different each year – usually related to LEGO’s history, or the LEGO factory. There are only about 300 of these sets produced, and they are all individually numbered. This year the set was the #4000022 LEGO Inside Tour Truck Show, based on a real truck that toured all over Europe between 1996 and 2004 with a LEGO exhibit inside, showcasing some of the new sets.
Two of the participants of the LEGO Inside Tour this year were Daniel and Oriel Tsou, who put together a really well done video-review about the 2016 LEGO Inside Tour set. They show you everything from the box, to building the set to play features, design details, and more. You can watch the full video-review below.
Nice set, isn’t it? And of course this is just one of the wonderful experiences of the LEGO Inside Tour. Registration for next year’s tour should be open sometime in November of this year (the tours themselves are done in May/June). So if you would like to participate in the 2017 tour, keep an eye on the official LEGO Inside Tour page.
So what do you think? How do you like this year’s LEGO Inside Tour set? Are you planning to participate in any of the future tours? Or would you like to? Have you been to one already? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
