You might remember that back in October the LEGO Ideas team announced a new contest to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons, the popular fantasy tabletop role-playing game. The contest is going through several stages, one of which is the Fan Vote stage – happening right now!
Basically how this works is that a panel of judges consisting of members from the LEGO Ideas team, and the Wizards of the Coast team, picked five designs from the pool of submissions, and they are now asking LEGO fans to vote for their favorite.
Unlike typical LEGO product idea submissions, the Fan Vote phase for this promotion is intended to help the judges gauge fan interest in specific designs, and validate fan excitement for the theme. The judges will ultimately choose which model from the Fan Vote phase will become a LEGO Ideas set, regardless of the number of Fan Votes obtained – although lots of votes certainly help! Once the final model is selected by the judges, the fan who submitted the design will have the pleasure of becoming the latest LEGO Ideas Fan Designer!
Below are the five selected submissions. and you can cast your vote on the contest page at the LEGO Ideas website. Until December 12th. Please note that you only have one vote, so choose with care! The LEGO Ideas team will share which design has been chosen to become the LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons product and will also share the result of the Fan Vote (let’s see if the most votes won the day, or if other aspects made the determination!) on LEGO Ideas no later than December 19th, 2022.

All five of these projects are already winners, as they will receive a copy of the #31120 LEGO Creator Medieval Castle, the #21325 LEGO Ideas Medieval Blacksmith, and a prize package of Dungeons & Dragons goodies. Amongst the five winners, the Fan Designer whose project will become the new LEGO Ideas set will receive 1% of the total net sales of the LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons product, 10 complimentary copies of your LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons set, they will be credited and their bio will be included in the set materials as the LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons Fan Designer, and they will also get a prize package of Dungeons & Dragons goodies.
Many LEGO fans and fans of Dungeons & Dragons are very excited about this contest, as it will bring together two of their favorite hobbies into one LEGO set (and perhaps more?). What do you think? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below!

The first one for me! It’s basically castle, dragon, and medieval village – my favorite themes.
I like the treasure chest. Mechanical sets always intrigue me. The others ones are too similar to other sets in my opinion.
I voted for the first one because it has the most minifigs. I want to get some D&D figs! The second one is good too.
Didn’t megabloks make d&d sets? A long time ago?
They had a Dragons line, and World of Warcraft. You might be thinking of those.
How do we convince Lego to make all five?
Haha! Dreaming big, hm? 😀 By the way, it’s not impossible! They have done stuff like this in the past if they see enough interest. Most recently, with the Classic Castle and Classic Space sets. So, I think if they see a lot of activity and votes, they might release more than one set. 😉
The first one 🙂
I think Lego should make D&D as a theme and not one or two big expensive sets. I mean what is Lego waiting for. The fans have spoken. They can do various sets . An army build for elves, dwarves, goblins and trolls. I mean come on Lego. Correct me if I’m wrong, but, didn’t Lego asked fans on what themes they should do for the next wave of sets. ( I think that was last year. ) 🤔.
For fans of Medieval High Fantasy, I believe it to be too muc overlap with themes such as nostalgic Castle Callbacks, Harry Potter and the upcoming LOTR license, alas…
Anyway, I voted for Dragons’s Keep, as I thought it was the most impressive build… Although Monster Manual might be the most creative idea…
Anyway, lack of time, space and funds would need me to prioritize, so I likely won’t be buying either pick…
