LEGO Ideas 21338 A-Frame Cabin references yet another set from the theme

Hidden away within the upcoming LEGO Ideas 21338 A-Frame Cabin is a subtle reference to yet another set from the theme.

The recently-revealed 21338 A-Frame Cabin is packed with intricate details, multiple accessories, charming minifigures and subtle nods to other LEGO sets. Based on the original pitch by Italian builder Andrea Lattanzio, the 2,082-piece model was given the thumbs-up by the LEGO Ideas review board in February 2022, after the design managed to achieve over 10,000 votes.

We’ve already started to delve into the depths of 21338 A-Frame Cabin and you can check out our visual tour and gallery of the set right here. Eagle-eyed builders will probably be able to spot a clever use of the Thor’s hammer element forming a cobblestone foundation for the model and there’s even a reference inside to 21327 Typewriter.

A further look around 21338 A-Frame Cabin has also revealed yet another nod to an existing LEGO Ideas set. Located in the bedroom at the top of the cabin is a small model that’s a direct reference to 21318 Tree House. The miniature build features a handful of pieces that boast the same blue, green and brown colours as the much larger set and the two LEGO Ideas models would certainly work well together as an aesthetic pairing.
