LEGO Ideas first 2023 review has its first castle creation

It had to happen eventually, the first 2023 LEGO Ideas review has its first castle-inspired project, but with a coastal twist. 

The Medieval Seaside Market by bricks_fan_uy has joined the selection in the first 2023 review. This is the user’s first submission to reach a review stage too. As indicated by the name, it’s another castle-inspired model that recreates a coastal market and port on the edge of a castle.  

Including the 11 minifigures, 2,372 pieces have been used in the project. The LEGO Ideas proposal features a main tower, market, wagon, ship, horse, side towers and a lighthouse tower for a complete coastal Castle experience. 

Castle-centric projects have seen success in previous LEGO Ideas rounds with an alternate layout in 21305 Maze and the more recent 21325 Medieval Blacksmith. The Medieval Seaside Market joins eight other projects in the first 2023 LEGO Ideas review.

    This set looks really good, most castles were on the coast or by rivers. I like that it’s partly modular. Greatly depends on the price that LEGO would charge for this set as LEGO have been what many people think they over pricing many new sets. I would buy, but depends on the price.
