project based on Sherlock Holmes has discovered the secret to gathering supporters, and will now progress to the review stage.

Italian builder Luigi (known on the crowdsourcing platform as DreamnBricks) has achieved the necessary 10,000 supporters to advance to the next phase at the first time of asking, having debuted Sherlock Holmes – 221B Baker Street on

in December 2021.

The project replicates the

Group’s modular building approach through its removable floors, each of which contains a detailed interior. However, it departs from the likes of

and by remaining open-backed and accessible for play.

“In the design phase I tried to close the back of the build,” Luigi explains on the project page. “The result would have negatively affected the aesthetics, as in the back I couldn’t have included the same details as the façade, ending up with an anonymous wall and a great waste of brick.”

Luigi’s concept is comprised of more than 2,200 pieces and includes four minifigures: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Mrs. Hudson and Professor Moriarty. There’s also an English carriage with a horse, and the build is packed with references to classic Holmes tales, such as The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Adventure of the Speckled Band.

221B Baker Street has taken less than two months to rack up the required number of votes to progress, and now joins 15 other builds in the first 2022 review. Here’s the full list so far:

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
