Whether it’s a miniature creature, a whimsical vehicle, a charming character, or anything else you can imagine, the sky is (almost) the limit! The LEGO Ideas team wants to see your ingenuity shine as you craft a set that not only delights with its build but also captures the essence of LEGO magic and your dreams.

Your submissions should use between 150-250 elements in order to be accepted in this challenge. Submissions should not be based on or reference old LEGO sets or any third-party intellectual property. It’s time to think out of the box!

    I really like these fan designed freebies. It gives us a chance to pick what we want. Kudos to Lego for doing this.

    By the way, they have some cool ones already submitted by others. Check them out!

    I hope they continue this trend. Of course, it doesn’t work when the freebie is tied with a yet unannounced set.
