Reduced to clear: snap up final discounts on LEGO set perfect for alternate builds

Going, going, gone: LEGO Icons 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft is on clearance at John Lewis right now, and there’s at least one good reason not to overlook this heavily-discounted set.

While 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft didn’t receive an overwhelmingly positive reception at launch, time has been kind to this unique LEGO Icons set. Not in the sense that everyone’s suddenly watching Queer Eye and the audience for it has grown exponentially, but because the LEGO community has had chance to cook up more interesting things to do with its pieces.

Head over to Rebrickable and you’ll find at least six alternate builds that can be achieved using only the pieces in 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft. If you’re willing to go the extra mile, there are also some awesome modifications and expansions that use additional pieces. And the best part is that it’s cheaper than ever to unlock them, because John Lewis has slashed 30% off the retired Queer Eye set.

That brings 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft down to just £62.99 from its retail price of £89.99. And it’s not bad going for 974 pieces, including plenty of white masonry bricks, along with five unique and exclusive minifigures (plus a bunch of additional torsos). Even if you don’t care for Queer Eye, the elements alone here are worth a look-in.

Check out some of the best alternate builds and expansions in the gallery below, or click through to Rebrickable to find them all. And if any of them inspire you to start collecting the necessary pieces, make sure to pick up 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft from John Lewis while remaining stock lasts.

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.
