The LEGO Group’s designer video backdrop has been decorated for the holidays as designers Enrique Beixer and Antica Bracanov are on hand to lead us through the latest, and biggest, LEGO Ideas model – 21330 Home Alone.
With 3,955 pieces, the newly released build depicts the home of the McAllister family as seen in the classic Christmas film. Several scenes are included in the set such as the dining room, attic and the various traps that Kevin uses to fend off the Wet Bandits.
“One of the things that we wanted to add to the model was the basement because it had the iconic furnace, it was one of the cool challenges we had designing this model – to add the basement without making the house much taller than it is,” said designer Antica Bracanov.
“So what we did was add several steps from the dining area into the kitchen and then underneath the kitchen, we added this section where the basement is placed.”
The designers also explained how the 24 bags of bricks that make up 21330 Home Alone was intentional to act as an advent calendar, building one bag every day up to the holidays. However, this does not make LEGO Ideas 21330 Home Alone the sixth 2021 LEGO Advent Calendar, but you can see the five official releases here, all of which are available now but may be sold out in your region.
