Instagram user lego_club_news reports that the 38th LEGO Ideas set – which is said to be launching in November – will ring in at 3,955 pieces, which would set a new record for a theme that’s swung towards increasingly large models over the past couple of years.
It may not actually be the most expensive LEGO Ideas set yet, however, with a rumoured price tag of just $250. That’s a full $100 less than 21323 Grand Piano, but then that musical instrument includes Powered Up components to provide functionality that’s unlikely to be required by 21330 Home Alone.
Previous rumours have indicated that the set – which is based on a design submitted to LEGO Ideas by Alex Storozhuk – will include Harry and Marv’s 1986 Dodge Ram van, along with minifigures of both Wet Bandits, Kevin, Kevin’s mum and ‘old man’ Marley.
Given the seasonal connotations of any set based on Home Alone, an imminent release date feels likely, and lego_club_news claims the next Ideas set will launch as soon as November 1. That would make it the sixth LEGO Ideas set to hit shelves in 2021, following 21325 Medieval Blacksmith, 21326 Winnie the Pooh, 21327 Typewriter, 21328 Seinfeld and 21329 Fender Stratocaster.
Take this information with a grain of salt for now, but if it’s true, we’ll likely see an official reveal for 21330 Home Alone very soon. In the meantime, check out the two new LEGO Ideas sets that will enter production after getting the green light in the record-breaking first 2021 review.
