StoneWars reports that 40502 The Brick Moulding Machine is listed through Bricks and Pieces, the company’s customer service department that supplies replacements for missing or lost elements.
The building instructions are absent, as is any image of the final set, but the product number, name and parts list are all a strong indication of what the model will entail. Essentially, we’re probably looking at a brick-built recreation of the moulding machine situated at the end of the LEGO House experience.
That lime green slice of LEGO manufacturing will be familiar to fans who have already toured the LEGO House in Billund. It sits next to a store of 624210 LEGO House 6 Bricks, a polybag that contains six red 2×4 bricks, and a machine that scans your wristband and prints a personalised instruction card showing one of their 915,103,765 unique combinations.
That seems like prime material for a LEGO House-exclusive set – a theory supported by the set’s parts list on Bricks and Pieces. The model will include at least one 2×2 tile printed to resemble 624210 LEGO House 6 Bricks, with its medium nougat base hinting that the real-life version of the traditionally plastic polybag may be switching to paper packaging in the near future.
Finally, the set number follows immediately after 40501 The Wooden Duck, suggesting 40502 The Brick Moulding Machine will be available exclusively at the LEGO House in Billund. We’ll likely hear more about the set when the attraction re-opens as coronavirus restrictions allow, so keep an eye on Brick Fanatics for more on this mysterious model.
