Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty arrived in with LEGO Ideas 21316 The Flintstones around a month ago, which LEGO Model Designer Ricardo Silva looks at in this new video from the official LEGO YouTube channel. He reveals a few little easter eggs, including his use of red and green grapes to represent the colours of the Portugese flag, as his home nation is Portugal. The designer also noted the use of the ‘Dino missing’ news report tile, explaining that the team “didn’t have enough time” to actually include the character.
