Six things we spotted in LEGO Ideas 21335 Motorised Lighthouse

LEGO Ideas 21335 Motorised Lighthouse includes a few hidden and hard-to-spot details throughout the 2,065-piece set and its 54cm-tall build. 

Launching on September 1, 2022, for £264.99 / $299.99 / €299.99, 21335 Motorised Lighthouse is the next LEGO Ideas model to release, coming in just before 21336 The Office, and a full gallery of images has revealed the finer details of this model and how the electronic elements come into play. 

6 – Two light bricks 

Light is undoubtedly an important part of any lighthouse, but the LEGO Ideas set doesn’t include only one. Instead, it uses two sources of light with one LED light running up the length of the lighthouse so it can spin at the top.  

However, the cottage at the bottom also includes a small fireplace with another light brick to provide a warm atmosphere for the lightkeeper. 


5 – A treasure cave 

While the rocky base of the build is mostly used to contain the Powered Up pieces, there’s just enough room left for a treasure-filled cave. 

It’s not the only detail on the island worth pointing out though, as a small beach holds an old anchor too. 

4 – Paintings 

There are several paintings inside 21335 Lighthouse referencing the history of it, including what could be previous lightkeepers.

One can be found on the third floor of the model, right in the middle between the cottage and the light and one in the cottage features a family standing in front of the lighthouse, perhaps they’re the previous lightkeepers. 

3 – No batteries included 

It’s worth noting that there are no batteries included for the Powered Up elements in 21335 Motorised Lighthouse.  

You might be ok with one of the light bricks though as LEGO sets with non=Powered Up light bricks traditionally have batteries installed in them ready to go. 

2 – Stickers 

There are a few stickers in 21335 Motorised Lighthouse including the design for the name of the boat. 

However, the Aurora Point label on the cottage seems to be a new print since the design goes so close to the edge of the element. 

1 – New minifigures 

The two minifigures included in 21335 Motorised Lighthouse are both new in at least one way with fresh face designs and the existing fisherman hat in a new dark green colour. 

You’re welcome to add any other minifigures to 21335 Motorised Lighthouse too, with the Ferry Captain from 71034 Series 23 a good match aesthetically, but make sure his ferry doesn’t get too close to the rocks.

    I think there is no light brick in this set. Light comes from the bulp on cables.

    I think both lights (and the motor) are powered by the battery box. That’s what the product listing on LEGO’s website seems to say in the Specifications section.
