Build your own marine life with the latest LEGO Ideas project to hit 10K

It’s better down where it’s wetter in the latest LEGO Ideas project to reach the review stage, which captures three examples of marine life in LEGO glass jars.

The 1,164-piece model is the first from LEGO Ideas user Brick Dangerous to hit 10,000 votes – having done so in just 44 days – and will now join 30 other projects in the platform’s first 2021 review.

While the glass-like housings are reminiscent of 92177 Ship in a Bottle, their contents are definitely not anything you’d want to sail the seven seas aboard. Instead, the buildable clownfish, seahorse and jellyfish are happy swimming far below the surface, or in this case, trapped in display jars.

As well as the three sea creatures – which appear to be floating in the bell-shaped cases – each jar contains a slice of the seabed, complete with coral, and a display base with plaque. You can see this model going down well with science-minded fans, which the Ideas theme has happily catered to in abundance over the past few years.

Marine Life is the 31st project in the current Ideas review, which will run until May. At this point, nobody can reasonably deny that we’re on course to sail past the 35 projects that reached 10,000 votes in the second 2020 qualifying window, setting a new record for a single review.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
