LEGO Dungeons & Dragons Set Coming Soon!

Today the LEGO Group unveiled the #21348 LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons: Red Dragon’s Tale set, a fan-designed brick representation of the iconic table-top game. Released in the year Dungeons & Dragons turns 50, this is the first time the LEGO Group has developed a Dungeons & Dragons set and to do so they turned to their fans to create the design, via a challenge on the LEGO Ideas platform.

Dungeons & Dragons has enchanted fans for 50 years with innovative gameplay, allowing friends and family to adventure in fantasy worlds together. The World’s Greatest Roleplaying Game boasts more than 50 million fans to date who have enjoyed the franchise through video games, novels, comics, roleplaying games, and accessories. In 2023, the major feature film produced by Paramount Pictures and eOne, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, captivated audiences and critics alike. Fans can experience D&D through wide-ranging formats right now, including online, through easy-to-use tools on D&D Beyond, and much more.

Based on a brief co-developed by the Wizards of the Coast team, over 600 LEGO fans submitted Dungeons & Dragons-inspired designs, but the winner was 33-year-old Lucas Bolt (known as BoltBuilds) from Amsterdam who created his version of the game in LEGO bricks. Lucas then worked closely with the LEGO design team, to develop the unique setting represented in the final set. In addition, the Wizards of the Coast team developed a bespoke adventure for the set.

The 3,745-piece set is incredibly detailed featuring a tavern with a removable roof, so you can see inside to the upper level. The set also features a dungeon and a tower. Also included are six LEGO minifigures – Orc Rogue, Gnome Fighter, Elf Wizard, and Dwarf Cleric, plus brick-built monsters, such as a beholder, an owlbear, and a displacer beast. Also featured is the giant Cinderhowl red dragon that builders can wrap around the tower.

The LEGO Group also turned to their fan community on the LEGO Ideas platform, giving them a chance to design the cover of the set’s building instructions. The winning design by Chris Yu features an epic battle using techniques to create depth in the image while showcasing good against evil centered around the iconic 20-sided die that’s set to determine the outcome. Chris’ design was a celebration of the game’s core values of collaboration, creativity, and adventure.

In celebration of the new set, the LEGO Group invited well-known Dungeons & Dragons players to the LEGO House for an epic game night. Anjali Bhimani took the chair as the Dungeon Master and was joined by Luis Carazo and Ginny Di, as well as fan designer Lucas and LEGO Designer Jordan Scott, who all participated in an epic adventure on a very special custom-made LEGO Dungeons & Dragons table. Recorded live, fans can now watch all the action when the game premieres on LEGO.com/DnD and the Dungeons & Dragons YouTube and Twitch channels on the 6th of April at 09:00 PDT / 12:00 EDT / 17:00 BST / 18:00 CEST / 00:00 CST.

Fans can also get a specially created Dungeons & Dragons adventure book, created in partnership by Wizards of the Coast and the LEGO Group, to offer a completely new and unique play experience. Available for LEGO Insiders as a free digital download, or as a paperback book for 2,700 Insider points (while stock last). The book is also available at D&D Beyond along with character sheets, a digital dice, and more.

Commenting on his inspiration for the design, Lucas, said, “The Dungeons & Dragons theme combined with my love of history, fantasy and making games, inspired me to create a playable layout with different challenges and routes to explore. I had so much fun designing this piece, and it is a real privilege seeing my design developed into a detailed LEGO set to celebrate 50 years of the iconic game.”

In relation to bringing Lucas’ design to life, LEGO Design Manager, Jordan Scott, said, “Lucas’ design perfectly captured the storytelling excitement of any Dungeons & Dragons game. Working with the Wizards of the Coast team, we were able to build on his design to co create a truly authentic Dungeons & Dragons experience full of details that will excite fans through the building process and beyond.”

“LEGO bricks and Dungeons & Dragons have been used by fans to generate stories and build adventures for so long that bringing these two creative brands together during our 50th Anniversary felt like a no-brainer,” said Dan Rawson, Global Play Lead on Dungeons & Dragons and RPGs. “With the amazing LEGO Ideas set designed by Lucas Bolt, the adventure package available on D&D Beyond, and the LEGO Minifigure Series coming this fall, fans will have so many new sparks of imagination available to enjoy creating fantasy stories together with friends and family.”

Join us at the Amsterdam flagship LEGO Store as we welcome Lucas Bolt, the mastermind behind the new #21348 LEGO Ideas Dungeons & Dragons: Red Dragon’s Tale on Saturday, the 6th of April. Immerse yourself in a world of creativity and meet Lucas between 9am – 12pm to have your new LEGO Ideas set signed making it totally unique and collectible.

    So Cool! But no way I can afford this! But I want the dragon so bad. And the figs!

  • Eriks lego March 19, 2024, 2:09 PM

    Finally! It looks really good! By the,way, there is also a leak of the minifig, and they look amazing!

    There’s also a D&D CMF series planned to release later this year. There’s a mindflayer with a purple squidhead, that I’m considering snagging somehow…

    Lego may have learned a lesson from the likes of Funko Pops: licensed stuff sells pretty well. Or maybe they learned it from their own Star Wars sets. If not that, then from Ideas given that so many sets reaching the threshold are from existing IP. It’s definitely exciting to see our favorite stuff in brick form.

    They may have also learned a lesson from other toy companies: develop and maintain some in-house IP as well, supported by animated shows.

    Haha but Lego hasn’t forgotten their roots either, we still get plenty of generic police and fire stations in City!

    I bet the Castle fans will also come out for this one. They’ve given a pretty strong showing in the Bricklink crowdfund sets.

    So why can’t Lego just make it as a theme and make more sets? It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that fans want more Castle themes. This dropping sets here and there is like dangling raw meat in front of a hungry tiger. They (Lego) gives us a taste and leave us wanting more. So, what’s the hold up ? It’s like the game ” peekaboo”. It’s not nice to tease the Dragon. I mean the set looks awesome but, the price is a bit high. So, good luck for those who want to get it. Happy hunting.

    I know they say the dragon still “wraps around the tower,” but it sure doesn’t seem like it can do that same, awesome coil that Yu’s does.

    Other than that, I’m super-excited about this set.
