The next crowdsourced set (which is also one of the theme’s most expensive to date) adapts a design by Sandro Quattrini, and in classic LEGO Ideas fashion, elevates it by introducing new elements. Among those are a 32×32 baseplate in dark blue for the first time, and – more impressively – a tiny Fresnel lens, designed to focus and reflect the lighthouse’s LED.
This is LEGO, though – so while that at first seems to be a single-purpose piece, it’s bound to show up in other themes before long. That’s what we’re predicting in our latest YouTube video, anyway, which discusses just how much of a gamechanger the new LEGO Fresnel lens is likely to be. Hit play on the video below to see just a few potential applications for this groundbreaking new element.
