After a few early opportunities for fans to buy the set, the LEGO Group has shared information and official images that showcase LEGO Ideas 21318 Treehouse, the largest set released so far in the fan inspired theme. Kevin Feeser came up with The Treehouse project, combining his passion for wildlife with his love of the brick, before the LEGO Group’s Cesar Soares turned it into an official model.
The 3,036 piece set will be released at shop.LEGO.com on July 24 and will be priced at £179.99 / $199.99.
Last year saw the launch of ‘plants from plants’ elements, botanical pieces made from plant-based polyethylene. 21318 Treehouse contains more of the unique elements in a single box than ever before. “When I first saw the model, I was blown away. Not only because it looks amazing, but also because it connects strongly to the very reason we are investing so much time and effort in identifying new and sustainable materials, which is to preserve natural resources and fulfill our planet promise. It really is an important step in our ambitious target of making all LEGO elements from sustainable materials,” said Tim Brooks, LEGO Vice President of Environmental Responsibility.
Here is the official product description:

A complex build for experienced LEGO builders that all the family will love to play with, it features a landscape base and 3 LEGO tree house cabins—a main bedroom, bathroom and kids’ room. The tree has interchangeable sets of green summer leaf elements and yellow and brown fall leaf elements—these and various plant elements on the base are all made from sustainable-plant-based polyethylene plastic—and the treetop and cabin roofs are removable to allow easy access. The model is packed with play-inspiring features including a buildable picnic table and seats, swing, bonfire, treasure map and hidden gem element to play out a treasure hunt, and a wind-up crane on the balcony of the bedroom cabin.
