Yesterday, LEGO Ideas Engagement Manager, Hasan Jensen, and LEGO Ideas Design Manager, Samuel Johnson, announced the results of the third 2019 review results, after spending the past four months evaluating the twelve awesome product ideas that reached 10,000 supporters between early September 2019 and early January 2020. Below are the results with not one, not two but three approved projects!
➡ LEGO Ideas Home Alone – McCallister’s House: The 1990 Christmas comedy film, Home Alone, is often regarded as one of the best Christmas films ever made, and it was the highest-grossing live-action comedy for over 20 years. The film follows an eight-year-old boy (Macaulay Culkin), who must defend his home from two burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) after his family mistakenly leaves him behind on their Christmas vacation. LEGO fan Alex Storozhuk (a.k.a. adwind) recreated the McCallister house with tons of movie-accurate details, and also included the three main characters in minifig-form. If you’d like to learn more about Alex, make sure to check out his LEGO Ideas 10K Club Interview.
➡ LEGO Ideas Typewriter: This project was created by Steve Guinness, who was the winner of the British version of LEGO Masters back in 2017. He originally developed the idea while he was on the TV show, and since then continued to refine the design. If you’d like to learn more about Steve, make sure to check out his LEGO Ideas 10K Club Interview.
➡ LEGO Ideas Seinfeld 30th Anniversary: This project was also created by someone well-known in the LEGO fan community. Brent Waller already has a successful LEGO Ideas project; the #21108 LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1, which was released back in 2014. Brent’s current project celebrates the 30th anniversary of the beloved classic 1990s comedy sitcom with an accurate recreation of Jerry’s Upper West Side Manhattan apartment.

The LEGO Ideas team is still working out the final product design, pricing, and availability for all these sets, and they will share more at the LEGO Ideas blog when they get closer to launch. In addition, the next batch of LEGO Ideas projects is already in review. This review period is particularly interesting as a whopping twenty-six product ideas reached 10,000 supporters between early January 2020 and early May 2020. Results of this review period will be shared sometime in the fall.
While we are waiting for all the new projects to be made into official LEGO sets, you can also check out the current selection of LEGO Ideas sets that were originally designed and submitted by LEGO fans at the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
