Yet another castle joins the first LEGO Ideas 2021 review

The latest LEGO Ideas review now contains a whopping five different castle-themed projects, as a 16-year-old builder’s Fantasy Castle has racked up 10,000 votes.

It’s the 56th project to join the first 2021 review in total, and the fifth to depict a castle of some sort. At this point, it’s difficult to see how LEGO fans could any more clearly express their appetite for a renaissance of the company’s classic in-house theme.

LEGO Ideas user LEGO Monkey is the latest builder to see their handiwork achieve the necessary support to progress to the review stage, with the teen’s Fantasy Castle landing on all the hallmarks of a medieval fortress across its 2,251 pieces.

We’re already rumoured to be seeing Castle return in a fashion through this summer’s Creator 3-in-1 line, however, which doesn’t bode well for the Fantasy Castle – or any of the other four similarly-themed projects in this review, including The King’s Castle and The Castle of Brickwood Forest.

Nevertheless, they’ll all get the same fair hearing during the first 2021 review – the qualifying window for which will finally come to a close next week, presumably to the great relief of the Ideas team. Here’s the full list of projects in this round:

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.
