The LEGO Ideas team would like to share the following very important and super exciting announcement, which I have posted below.
To celebrate the 90th Anniversary of LEGO, help us choose a classic theme to be reimagined as a single new product for the 2022 LEGO Adult Portfolio. We have created a list of our 30 favorite classic LEGO themes for you to choose from.
Splitting this fan vote into two parts, you will have three votes in the first vote. You can vote a maximum of once for each theme in the first vote. This vote will be 100% transparent!
The second vote will be the top three themes from the first vote. One of the three themes will be the theme the 90th Anniversary Set will be based on. This vote will not be transparent, so it’s still a little bit of a secret.
How will this work?
We will run this fan vote of all 30 themes from January 17-25, then on February 3rd, we will launch a second fan vote of the top three themes from this fan vote. One of these three themes will be what the 90th Anniversary Set will be based on, but we still want to know what the most popular of the final three is! Below is the link to vote in the first round.
The classic themes you can choose from are as follows: Trains, Town, Classic Space, Classic Castle, Lion Knights, Black Falcons, Model Team, Forestmen, Blacktron, Black Knights, Pirates, Imperials, Space Police, M-Tron, Wolfpack, Paradisa, Dragon Knights, Ice Planet, Aquazone, Spyrius, Exploriens, Time Cruisers, Divers, Adventurers, Xtreme Team, Rock Raiders, Studios, Bionicle, Arctic, and Alpha Team. If you’re not familiar with some of these classic LEGO themes, don’t worry, there are example images for all of them. In addition to selecting three themes from the above list, you can also specify a sub-theme that you would like to see (example: Construction , which was a sub-theme of LEGO Town).
This is incredible news! Imagine a LEGO Classic Space, LEGO Classic Castle, or other classic LEGO theme come to life as an awesome 90th Anniversary set! So head over to vote, and help bring your favorite classic LEGO theme back to life!
What do you think? Are you excited about this announcement? Which classic LEGO theme would you like to see turned into an anniversary set? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below!

Oh…. my…. gosh! This is incredible news! I’m voting now! 😀
Wow. It’s hard to choose! I would love to see all of these themes get a commemorative set.
I expect that classic space or classic castle will win. At least I hope so. I gave my third vote to trains.
I was thinking those two themes have the best chance too, but they spread out the classic castle and space themes to several sub-themes, This means that the votes may get spread out too, and we may end up with something like Bionicle as the winner. 😀
Are the pictures in the survey an indication of what set they are planning to make? Like, if we select Classic Castle, we will get a remake of the yellow castle?
From what I read, they are just there to remind people what the theme looked like and give an example. Many younger people are not familiar with those older themes.
Those are just reference images. 🙂
I voted for time cruisers and adventurers because they could both include several other themes. And then classic space. I heard that there is a castle theme coming this summer or something, so it looks like we will be getting a castle anyway. Note that this is just a rumor I heard on youtube.
I used the process of elimination to vote. We are already getting trains, town (city), arctic (city), divers (city), and model team (creator). And paradisa is like friends. So there was no point in voting for those. And we recently got a great pirate set so there was no point in voting for that either.
From the remaining themes, classic castle, lion knights, black falcons, forestment, black knights, wolfpack, and dragon knights are almost the same, so I picked one (black falcons).
Classic space, blacktron, space police, M-Tron are similar too. I want a space set other than start wars, so I voted for classic space because I think it has the most chance (most votes).
I don’t know much about extreme team or studios, but I feel that time cruisers or adventurers could be interesting, so I picked one. 😀
Are they really willing to bring back Bionicle? Bionicle is full of special parts, so that’s why I’m wondering. I want to vote for it, but I don’t want to waste my vote if it doesn’t have a chance.
Well, they would have not put Bionicle on the list if they weren’t willing to make it. But I fear the sets would be like the reboot we already had.
I’m kinda worried it won’t even look like that, since a lot of the CCBS parts for building the Bionicle skeletons don’t seem to have made an appearance since 2018, with both Bionicle and Star Wars buildable figures being scrapped due to.
If anything, it’ll likely be some System-based tribute such as Sokoda’s hommage Ideas submission, or some System-based rebuild of some classic Bionicle set like 8699 Takanuva*…
*Disclaimer. I have no idea which of the Bionicle set are considered the biggest classics, I just assumed that, since Takanuva is one of the biggest sets released and the character had been featured in several sets judging from Bionicle wikis…
*due to unimpressive sales.* I meant to say…
That’s a really hard list to cull. Ended up with Classic Space, Blacktron, and Forestmen. Had to pass on Space Police, M-Tron, Black Knights, Spyrius, and Pirates. Pirates was easy since we just got Barracuda Bay.
I know Spyrius won’t win, but it has a special place in my heart for some reason. I think maybe because of the android? Or those dark blue translucent pieces. The translucents were always my favorite part of the space sets.
This is great to see. I will do the survey when I get home tonight. I would love to see a commemorative set for any of these.
I wonder if it is possible that they pick more than one theme if there is enough interest/votes.
Anything is possible. They will start with one, and if there is interest, I don’t see why they couldn’t follow up with other anniversary sets.
Did they say how big this anniversary set going to be? Is it going to be small like a freebie, or large like Barracuda Bay?
That’s a good question and I would like to know that too.
They did not share any more details in the press release and the voting page, so I’m not sure. But I have a feeling it will be a larger set, not just a small promo item.
I’m curious if they already have ideas/prototypes for all these different themes or are they going to work on them once the votes are finalized. If they already have prototypes, they could easily release the other top choices too. No?
I guess there must be some plan for every eventuality, but it’s not entirely clear on the exact details…
Hmm, I tried voting, but I’m not sure if the voting went through, so I voted again.
Both times I picked Blacktron, Exploriens and Forestmen, with Futuron as additional request.
But as I said, it wasn’t clear if the vote was counted or not… =/
You can check if your vote went through by going to your profile on LEGO Ideas. Your vote will be there. 🙂
By the way, this round of the voting process is completely transparent, so you can see exactly what people voted for by clicking on the red tiles on the voting page.
Hmm, I think it went through this time. Thanks.
So let’s wait and see how it will unfold…
Guys, did you see?! There are over 45 thousand votes already! That’s crazy!
Lego might just do the most popular voted theme first and then go down the line of the next top votes over the year or so. Kinda of like what they did with the star wars spaceships on what should be made first. However, if they are still looking for something new. I still think Lego should make a space pirate theme. I’ve been pushing this idea for quite some time now. Lego also touch briefly on space western theme in the Lego movie. So, I’m up for that too.😁 … creative minds want to know.🤔.
i wish i will ask my family or not tell them that i voted for a lego set but there will be no crisis about the features.
