LEGO Ideas 21318 Treehouse launched to VIPs a matter of days ago, but now the set is available to everyone – exclusively at shop.LEGO.com. The 3,036 piece set is the largest in the theme so far, priced at £179.99 / $199.99.
As a keen nature enthusiast, Kevin Feeser was the fan responsible for devising the treehouse project, before the LEGO Group’s César Soares turned it into an official model. The Model Designer appears in a video presenting the set and explaining his process.
The set uses the greatest number of the new ‘plants from plants’ elements ever, allowing fans to decorate the model with either spring or autumn colours.
Here is the official product description:
Build, display and play with this intricately detailed, 3,036-piece LEGO Ideas 21318 Tree House playset. 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.
