Cult film The Princess Bride joins the ranks of LEGO Ideas projects in review

The latest LEGO Ideas design to gain 10,000 supporters is The Princess Bride: The Guilder Frontier, making it the 46th project to reach the current review stage.

The project is based on the cult film The Princess Bride, featuring five minifigures and one brick-built R.O.U.S (rodent of unusual size) from the classic movie. It’s made up of 1,000 pieces and took 310 days to gain the required 10,000 votes in its first attempt.

The set depicts three classic duels and the journey through the fire swamp, all scenes that fans of the fantasy adventure film will know and love. It was designed by a solo creator who goes by the username FSLeinad on LEGO Ideas. The creator took on suggestions from others throughout the project, including adding boats for the characters and extra details like a rock for the character of Fessik to throw.

This is the 46th project to make it to the current LEGO Ideas review stage, joining the ranks of many worthy proposals. It’s getting harder and harder to see who will come out on top in the end. Here are all 46 projects that made it to this round:
