The LEGO Group are lighting it up with their latest set – a tribute to the global pop icons – BTS, also known as Bulletproof Boy Scouts or Bangtan Boys. The #21339 LEGO Ideas BTS Dynamite set, designed by a LEGO fan, features the seven-piece band on the video set of their global smash-hit single “Dynamite”, which when released in August 2020 reached over 100 million views in less than one day and one billion views in just eight months, and even gave the band their first number-one single in the United States.
Sing the night away as you build this 749-piece LEGO set and uncover authentically recreated details that mirror scenes from the iconic music video. Customers can now combine at-home karaoke sessions with brick building and immerse themselves in a world of disco, donuts, and dynamic dance moves.
The new set embodies the band’s creative forms of expression and includes the vibrant donut shop, ice cream truck, and record store. Each building is fully detachable from the set, allowing for individual play and display experiences.
But the set wouldn’t be complete without the biggest South Korean boy band in the world – who are now also available in LEGO minifigure form for the first time. All seven minifigures of the band members – RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V, and Jung Kook – are ready to sing and dance in sync on the LEGO stages.
This LEGO Ideas set was the brainchild of LEGO fans and friends Josh, 20 from Indiana, and Jacob, 21 from New York. Combining their love of BTS and passion for LEGO building, they worked together to bring the set to life.
Talking about their process, Jacob said: “Josh did the building and design work and, as a massive BTS fan, I told him what needed to be in it, what details were most important. It was a really fun process”.
Josh continued, saying: “Jacob had the BTS knowledge, and he was able to direct my build in the proper way. I watched the music video over and over and tried to capture its essence in LEGO bricks. It was insane when the project went viral online overnight.”
Talking about developing the set, Federico Begher, Head of LEGO Product Group, commented: “When we saw Josh and Jacob’s colorful design we knew it would be a hit and this was proved by how quickly they reached 10,000 views in the LEGO Ideas voting. The BTS fans have already got behind the design and so it was important that we were as faithful to the original creation as possible. The set highlights creativity, passion and most importantly, fun! We can’t wait to see the fans building and displaying it.”
In case you’re not familiar with the band or their hit song, I have included their music video below.
The #21339 LEGO Ideas BTS Dynamite set is going to be released on March 1st. Prices are as follows: £89.99 / €99.99 / $99.99 / 169.99 AUD / 129.99 CAD. For more information, visit the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
