We're happy to share the final designs of the LEGO® Ideas Test Lab challenge with Pick a Brick with you all! It's been so exciting celebrating the wonderful world of loose bricks supported by all your endless and amazing creativity.
As previously indicated, two of the nine designs will however be made available later in the year. These are the Christmas Sock by BrickStability and Sugar Skull by yop1172.
The builds are now live in all European countries with Pick a Brick, as well as Australia and New Zealand.
We’ve made sure all the bricks are in our Bestseller selection for faster shipping, but don’t forget you can also add your own twist to customize the builds even further by adding other elements from the Pick a Brick assortment to your basket.
As the bricks are still on their way into the Bestseller warehouse in the USA and Canada, we expect that the designs will first be available in July in these regions. For now, you can still have a look at the builds and download the instructions.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this pilot challenge. It has given us so many learnings and insights that we're eagerly going through.
Pick a Brick Builds are new to LEGO.com and so it’s still a Beta experience while the team gathers feedback and works to improve. If you receive a feedback survey please respond to it, or leave comments below if you make a purchase. We’d really appreciate your help and support to improve this experience for fans and shoppers.
Fan Designer David from England was inspired by the glamour of old Hollywood’s vintage billboards to create a build that allows for maximum creative expression. Challenge a friend to create the prettiest, ugliest or silliest sign you can. Or add a special message and leave it on a desk or table for someone special to find. The double-sided frame holds a panel that can easily be removed to work on. You can even slide in a favorite photograph.
Fan Designer Marcos from Argentina tapped into his passion for research and discovery to create this detailed cybernetic explorer with pet robot friend. Together, they walk across and explore a mysterious planet. The figures are poseable and can be easily rebuilt into different humanoid or animal figures. Use the extra pieces to customize any way you want.
Fan Designer Steven from the USA was inspired by the seasonal colors and variety of plant pieces he found in the LEGO® palette. Modifying the Greenhouse scene is easy and creative. From spring flowers to a pumpkin for autumn, arrange the seasons yourself by using different colors and elements. Take turns with a friend or family member to see how quickly you can rebuild the seasonal scene.
Fan Designer Martin from England wanted to expand the world of LEGO® City by creating unique and colorfully detailed market stalls that could transform to fit any city scene, from modern to medieval. You can customize the markets by rearranging or adding other food elements or changing up the canopy colors.
Fan designer Quinten from the USA wondered what would happen if he built a race car that was strong enough to support customization, again and again. He created this modular set of two cars each with a chassis that is lightweight enough to race and sturdy enough to support the addition of whatever custom details you can dream up. Swap the panels or mix and match panels from other cars to make a brand new racer every time.
Fan Designer Maria from Greece created this modular garden to work as a small diorama that can be built again and again. Anchored by 3 baseplates you can shift into different configurations, you ‘plant’ the garden beds by adding different elements such as flowers, trees and ornaments. Perfect for families to build together, because the gardens can grow and be tended by builders of all ages.
Fan Designer Joshua from the USA tapped into his memories of living on a tropical island to create this collection of colorfully creative fish. Each fish has a head, middle and tail, which can be mixed and matched to create whatever kind of fish you can imagine. There’s even a sandy patch with a crab and coral reef to complete the display.
