Classic Castle reaches 10,000 votes on LEGO Ideas

Classic Castle may soon be returning to the LEGO line-up, as one user’s impressive project has reached 10,000 votes on LEGO Ideas.

Frank Boor is hoping to reignite the company’s love for Castle, which has fallen by the wayside in recent years. His minifigure-scale build combines the Classic Castle aesthetic with modern bricks and techniques. Alongside a gate and watchtower, the fortress includes a courtyard, hall and kitchen.

The German LEGO fan first submitted his product idea in March 2019. He’s since published another four, but his Classic Castle is the first to reach 10,000 votes. It will now advance to the review stage, wherein the LEGO Group will consider whether to turn it into an official set.

Frank’s castle is the eighth project to reach the third LEGO Ideas review period of 2020. It joins Avatar: The Last Airbender, Red Dwarf StarbugBag EndGravity Falls: The Mystery ShackBoeing 737 Passenger PlaneBrick Town Police Station, and Colosseum (Architecture Style) in contention for a future LEGO Ideas slot.

21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay has already proven there’s a market for LEGO nostalgia at the moment. Now, Frank’s project suggests that might extend to the long-dormant Castle theme, too. We’ll just have to wait and see whether the LEGO Group agrees.

In other Ideas news, The Earth Globe and Legendary Stratocaster recently passed the review process and will be released as LEGO Ideas sets next year. 21313 Ship in a Bottle and 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V are also about to be reissued, shortly after being retired.

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.
