Official images of the next LEGO Ideas set, 21308 Adventure Time have been released. The set allows Adventure Time fans to build blocky versions of their favourite characters, with some nice printed pieces allowing the characters to come to life in a great LEGO style. The characters included are Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum, Lady Rainicorn, Marceline, BMO, Gunter and Ice King.
Fan designer Ludovic Piraud came up with the original project that made it through the process, and told the LEGO Ideas team:
“The appeal for adult viewers like me I think comes from how it taps into the nostalgia of childhood play fantasies where imagination goes wild. As does playing with LEGO bricks, as a matter of fact”
When asked how it felt once he learned his project had gained 10,000 supporters and later was selected to become one of the next official LEGO Ideas sets, Ludovic explained “It felt unreal. I didn’t think at first that what started as a fun little challenging pet project would receive so much support so fast. I was even afraid at some point that I would not have the time to submit the last update before the 10000th vote hit! That was really thrilling and I started to think that I may have a chance to tell my kids one day “See this LEGO set? Your dad made it!”. Now that it’s passed the LEGO review we know it’s going to happen and that makes me very, very happy.”
The set comprises 495 bricks and will be released on January 1, 2017.
