It seems that Unbound, the LEGO Group’s crowdfunding partner on The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks, is looking to give the project a boost. Those who pledge £90.00 can get a unique 3D printed prototype LEGO element as a reward.

The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks is the first official LEGO book aimed directly at AFOLs, authoured by Blocks magazine US Editor Daniel Konstanski. Two other new rewards include an author Q&A and a VIP experience at LEGO House in Billund, Denmark.

Here is the official explanation of what fans will get, should they choose this particular reward:

The LEGO Group is offering for the first time ever, a brand-new, specially 3D printed prototype element on which you can give your personal feedback. It comes with its own AFOL-themed minifigure.

Printed in Billund, Denmark, the element is yet to be finalized so it will be a surprise when you receive it, but we can tell you that this isn’t something you will have seen before. The element will present a new integrated function as a part of our exploration of new design and play functions. It is the first time the LEGO Group is asking AFOLs and fans to give their thoughts on a specific element while the technology is being developed. Limited to one per household.
